I love what men bring to the table, especially my husband, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have just as much fun when I'm out with my girlfriends. And I have been blessed with an especially awesome group of women that I'm proud to call my sisters. Anyway-at dinner last night I asked each woman to tell me the most important lessons they've learned so far. I hope these quotes resonate with you.
"Family is the most important thing in the world. Nothing else really matters."
"We can be as happy as we choose to be. Attitude is key."
"It's just stuff. You can't take it with you."
"It isn't what you get from this life that matters. It's what you bring to it."
"No matter what happens...no matter how horrible the day was- the sun will rise again tomorrow. There will always be another day."
"The food's good here, but I bet there is a seriously awesome buffet in Heaven."
"Sometimes-actually more often than not-you have to just suck it up and continue in spite of it all. And bonus if you can manage to do it with a smile."
Here are a couple extra goodies...
"If people never changed, we'd all still be wearing diapers."
"Forget yourself and find someone who needs your service, and you will discover the secret to a happy, fulfilled life."
-Ezra Taft Benson
