Garibay Soup: Sister Marjorie Hinckley once said......

Sister Marjorie Hinckley once said......

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 the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Wow, that is an amazing thought. And now I don't need to feel bad about the slobber marks all over my shirt.

Thanks for the suggestions about decorating. I'm hoping I'll actually be able to make a plan soon.
