When we left California, our Relief Society President (who happened to be Lynn Gardner, lds author)handed me this book written by Marjorie Pay Hinckley called Small and Simple Things. I was very grateful for her thoughtfulness! When I opened the book the sisters of our ward had signed there thoughts and well wishes regarding our upcoming move and new life on thie inside cover - similar to a yearbook. Not only is this a fantastic book of thoughts by a wonderful women, but it is a remembrance of the people I left behind. I've moved enough to know that I won't communicate with every sister that I had known before moving. Their thoughts in this book remind of their spirit and how they touched my life.The trick is to enjoy life. Don't wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead.
The next time a friend or sister in your ward moves, grab your favorite inspirational book, pass it around among your circle of friends and ward members. It is a beautiful gift and one I know will keep and enjoy the rest of my life.
