Small and Simple Things

Last night I spoke at our ward's Relief Society Birthday Party. I was asked to speak on the book Small and Simple things by Marjorie Hinckley. I think it went pretty well, but how can you go wrong with thoughts by this woman. She is the kind of person I would love to have over just to chat with. One of the things that she said was, "I couldn't possibly have understood this when I was young like I do now. When we look back on decades of life we see that the seemingly insignificant things we do over and over actually weave the pattern of our lives. And if those small and simple things are good, we will end up having lived a fulfilling life-and that is a great thing!" As a person completely incompetent at doing great things I love that thought. Here's to a life filled with small and simple things that add up to something my Heavenly Father can be proud of!
