Stand A Little Taller

Last night, we learned that our beloved Prophet and President of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Gordon B. Hinkley, had died. He was 97 years old, and has lived an amazing life. Pres. Hinkley has been the prophet since I was married twelve years ago. I know that there are many experiences in my life, where I have turned to his counsel and strength, to become a better person.
He will truly be missed. As I explained all of this to my kids this morning, I truly knew that he was in a better place, with his wife and loved ones. What a beautiful reunion!
This is one of my favorite quotes by him:
"In all living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured."
I am going to try to enjoy life even more and look all around me at the little blessings in my life.

  1. i love that saying at the end kim. Great post, will miss him, but just like grandpa he's in a better place with his sweetheart who he so lovingly talked about and missed dearly.

  2. Thanks for your post Kim. Now he is with his wife, and in a better place, like you said. I also loved your quote at the end. That is so good that you got to share your experiences with your kids. How neat!
