SO I FIRST HEARD THIS QUOTE FROM PRES HINCKELY AND LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, IT....AND TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE..IT IS ACTUALLY FROM JENKINS LLOYD JONES IN A DESERET NEWS COLUMN......HERE IT GOES......
"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed.
Most putts don't drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more often dull then otherwise.
Life is like an old time rail journey-delays, sidetracks, smoke dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occassionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed.
The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."
