The Unexpected in Life

The Unexpected in Life

"I believe the most valuable thing a mother can teach her child is belief, confidence, and faith in a loving God—to reach outward and upward beyond himself for strength and courage—and to instill in that child the simple faith that he or she is a child of God with a purposeful life ahead. Life is filled with the unexpected: accidents, deaths, hazards, fears. Mother, father, the light switch, water in the tap may not always be there. But resource to God is always available." - "Favorite Quotations from the Collection of Thomas S. Monson," p.39

Life does go on, however bleek somedays may be, others are full of laughter and life, all are full of love.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
