This is a Wonderful Time

I found this quote recently that I absolutely love. It encapsulates my view of the world so well. So, I wanted to share it, along with a few fun pics of the kids from Sunday.

"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.
We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues."

- President Thomas S. Monson

Love the quote, thanks for sharing. I served in "The Polyanna Mission" and I'm no natural Polyanna, but I try, and I love people who are, and this quote reminds me of being Polyanna.
