I have really come to have a real fascination, admiration and adoration for President Uchtdorf. He is oh-so-handsome to look at, but the inspirational words that come out of his mouth are unbelievable. His most recent talk from this month's General Conference is titled "The Merciful Obtain Mercy". I've a quote here I'd like to share. It is somewhat lengthy, but I believe it is well worth the read. My favorite parts are "stop it" and the bumper sticker. What truth and what a solution! Though it is not easy to do, I believe that "stopping it" is the best policy.
I walked into work this morning, just before 8am. I ran into one of the docs who was leaving the office as I was taking off my coat.
Me: Mornin' Meg.
She: Hello. I barely made it here on time today.
Me: Oh? (thinking to myself, I'm here a little early, go me!)
She: And it looks like you did too.
Me: (I look down at my coat that's still on) A little, I guess.
She: For our 8am meeting? For scheduling?
Me: Oh. OH! Right!
She: You remembered right?
Me: Oh, yes. Uh, I'll take off my coat and be right there!
I would have totally missed that meeting (or at least have been late until the reminder popped up on my computer) had I not run into her! Phew and ha ha!
