Learning to celebrate life is one of the best lessons a person needs to learn.
-Joan Chittister, submitted by Kathy W.
Go forward in life
with a twinkle in your eye
and a smile on your face,
but with great and strong
purpose in your heart.
Love life and look for its opportunities. . . .
-Gordon B. Hinckley
Some of you spent Sunday watching the SUPER Bowl (with some SUPER commercials–I loved the talking eTrade baby and the talking Tide To Go stain!); others are preparing to participate in (or at least anticipate) the SUPER Tuesday primaries. Between these monumental occasions, I hope you can pause for a moment to notice that even your everyday regular life can be spectacular, special, and yes, I will use the word one more time: SUPER!
I reminded the remarkable student leaders at Western Oregon University over the weekend that college and indeed life speeds by very quickly and that deep enjoyment can evolve more profoundly from the regular and yet so precious daily activities than from the big, exciting marker events that often fill our memories and photo albums.
I dare you to choose one small routine or habit or chore this week and try very hard to recognize its SUPER power!
P.S. To all of our LDS friends: we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers!
