I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that we are doing well on the big quilt project. We have 58 quilts that are done!!! Only 42 more to go and we have until Sept 24th. I think that we will get it done.

We've had friends who are not members come and help us with this task and it made me so happy to see them join us in this great work.

Here is another of my favourite quotes; this is from President Hinckley who passed away a few months ago. He was loved and respected by many.

"Life is like that--ups and downs, a bump on the head, and a crack on the shins. It was ever thus. Hamlet went about crying, "To be or not to be," but that didn't solve any of his problems. There is something of a tendency among us to think that everything must be lovely and rosy and beautiful without realizing that even adversity has some sweet uses. One of my favorite newspaper columnists is Jenkin Lloyd Jones. In a recent article published in the News, he commented: Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just ordinary people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. . . . Life is like an old-time rail journey--delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride." --President Gordon B. Hinckley
