sunday's food for thought

So I came across this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley, "Life is to be enjoyed, not endured." I read it and thought how meant to be it was for me to read and think about. Because often times I find myself getting so caught up in wishing I could just fast forward to the day my missionary will be home, and not caring about experiencing the "in-between" portion. Isn't that sad? haha (Well probably more pathetic, than sad...that's what I meant. Lol) But it's true, I've thought of that a time or two..(or three, four, whatever?) and than I have to remember what Elder Atiga writes me. About enjoying the now and this experience. And I know that he's so right. Rather than (literally) just trying to endure to the end I need to enjoy this journey up until it ends. Because there is so much that I know is set up for me during this time to do and accomplish and can only be done when I enjoy this and use my time wisely, rather than just going through the motions to let time pass and have my man home again! haha. Opportunities are only guaranteed for so long until another one comes up and the one before is completely gone. So yeah, that's just a little "food for thought" i thought i'd share today! (: and hopefully this quote helps more than just myself (;
