“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 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.”
-Gordon B. Hinckley

Thank you, Dear Friend!
Wow! I love this! Thanks so much for sharing this Penny!! A truth more people need to take to heart!! Reminds me of a quote by Lee Marvin I can’t find but went like this – “You can put almost all of your moments of happiness and bliss into about 30 minutes”. A bit negative, but more on the right track than not. Hope you have a great holiday weekend, My Dear!
I’m glad you liked it, Chuck. I’ve had this quote hanging in my office for years. It’s a fav. ❤
Wow, great quote.
Thank you , Lisa.
