Day 225: A Little Different

The lesson in Relief Society was on President Uchtdorf's talk back in September titled, Forget Me Not.  As I mentioned in my blogpost back then, this is by far my favorite talk!  It's amazing! 

Anyway, after listing the principle "Be Happy Now", the teacher asked for comments on how we can be happy now without waiting for "our golden ticket to happiness".  One of my friends said, "Not to be a downer, but you can't rely on 'it'll get better' because it may not.  It might be better, it might be different, but it can always be good."
I thought this was a great way to look at life.  Things could be better--they could change--but no matter what, with a positive attitude, things can always be good.

Ha ha:
Whilst hanging out with friends during the Super Bowl, Clinton spent a good deal of his time swapping ghost stories with Richard.  They were sort freaking each other out and laughing about it when Richard's wife said she wanted to take a picture.  All conversations ceased and we posed for the below picture.
It wasn't until looking at this picture that Richard nervously laughed and said, "Uh, Clinton?  Look at this."  (Notice the ghost orb floating between Clinton and Richard? Spooky/really hilarious!)
The innocent girls (no ghost orbs here!)


  1. I LOVE that talk! That's a really good comment, that we can't wait to be happy "when things are better." I've always told myself not to try to rush time when I'm looking forward to something because then whatever I'm looking forward to will pass all the sooner. I just try to enjoy every day, although some days that's harder than others. :)

    Sweet ghost orb. :)

  2. Looks like so much fun! Glad you guys had a great time! And that is really freaky/hilarious about the picture. =)
