what love means to me today.

March 25, 2010



"Think the best of each other,
especially of those you say you love.
Assume the good and doubt the bad."

- Elder Holland, "How Do I Love Thee?"

I heard this yesterday in one of my classes,
and that phrase kept repeating itself over and over
and over again:
"Think the best of each other,
especially of those you say you love."

Unfortunately, I do not always follow this wise advice;
and lately, it feels like I have become especially imperfect.
So after class, I inwardly promised
myself to do something about it,
And honestly,
within 24 hours I've already noticed a miraculous difference.


Doesn't love just make you feel really, really good inside?
It just seems to always make everything alright again.

Thanks for looking at my blog Kels.. I need to check yours more often because every time I do i love it! Your last post is adorable.. I wish I was closer so I could still play with you guy and Kylie from time to time. And this quote from Elder Holland is beautiful.. and so true. I need to remember that too.

I'm working on this too. Sometimes it's hard not to be critical. Thanks for the great reminder; I love Elder Holland so much! Can't wait for Conference.

I like this quote a lot. What class did you hear it in? I assume religion. :)

Yay! I love this message! When I'm feeling a bit moody or cynical I try and force myself to flip my thoughts around from focusing on the bad to the good. And yo uare totally right! It totally works! and quickly too!
