Great Quote from a Great Lady!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."-Marjorie Hinckley

Debbie! I was just thinking of you guys last week! We went and visited my friends/lukes cousins that live by you! I am glad you found my blog! I can't believe how time flies! I miss you family! My mom always says she misses you guys so much! K well Luke and I live right by westwood he fixes them here, but if you don't want to drive over than he does pick up x boxes from game zone on Gilbert and Guadalupe SW corner.
