quote of however-long-I-feel-like:

Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things - trees and grass and sun and moon and stars.

Suppose we have.

Then all I can say is that, in any case, the made - up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones.

If A Day Could Talk.

Remember how I have Spanish class in Salt Lake City?

Well, yesterday the other girl didn't show, so mi profesor and myself ended up just talking for an hour and a half.

Mostly about the Gospel, which was good, and I needed, but he also talked about making the most of our days.

Pretend that you're hosting a reunion, a get together for all the days of your life. What do you thing some of the conversations would be?

"February 22, 2010, I'd like you to meet February 5, 2010."

"Hullo the 22nd, what did Tiffany do with you?"

"Oh, we went to work, made new friends, went to class, then we had an awesome workout and we discovered that she can still do her awesome handstands and splits. After, we rode the bus to Salt Lake and went to class, but it wasn't the class she was expecting, we learned a lot about life from her teacher, and then we missed the bus. By four minutes. It ended up alright though, we decided to go to Temple Square, follow up on her referral, visit with the sisters, and then had a wonderful conclusion to the night by watching the Joseph Smith movie. Oh! And her amazing friend Reyna found her phone for her. Basically, it was great!" ... "What did she do with you?"

"Nothing. Really, nothing. She sat around and moped for a while, and we saw that same Reyna for a short period of time, but overall, it was quite a depressing time."

"I'm sorry, I mean, you'd only waited for like, what? eternity for your one chance with her. I'm sorry she couldn't appreciate you."

If a day out of your life could talk, what would it say?

I love that perspective!
It is a good thing my days cannot talk because it would be depressing!

This is a new view that I love!
Thank you.
