Flowers are Nature's messengers -
reminders of an unspeakable beauty.
- jlh

In quiet moments when you think about it,
you recognize what is critically important in life and
what isn't. Be wise and don't let good things
crowd out those that are essential.”

- Elder Richard G. Scott

The wise man thinks about his troubles only when there

is some purpose in doing so; at other times he thinks about other things”

- Bertrand Russell

We must all fight through some of
the roughest days of our lives
to earn the best days of our lives. It's worth it.
