Deep Thoughts

I've been thinking about some things lately. Things I've heard, things I've read, and things I've seen. Normally "thinking" or "analyzing" or "contemplating" isn't something I recommend for myself because it usually just stirs up in me the desire to say something and then that generally causes a lot of trouble somewhere, but hey, I've had a lot of long drives lately through Middle-of-Nowhere, Texas and so I've had lots of time to either:
  1. listen to country music, or
  2. think.

I chose "think". Because it's less painful to me than country music.

You ready? Here it is:

Life (or marriage, or love, or the children, or the family, or the house, or the finances, or etcetera and ad infinitum) has never been and will never be perfect. Even if people or circumstances had been different, none of it would be perfect. And that's okay. What's important is how you deal with the imperfections.


  1. Good thought--and accurate. I take it one step further--people (mainly me) will never perfect. If I compare others' foibles to my own, most everyone comes off better, so it's way easier to overlook--and important to do so, I think.

    It's sort of the herbs and spices of life. You can make a meal without them, but it's kind of boring.

  2. listening to country music? I know - I missed the point of this whole blog - I couldnt get past that part. This is the woman that introduced her young sisters innocent mind to Foreigner other rock bands? Country music? is this what happens when you get old?

  3. "What's important is how you deal with the imperfections". LOVE that. I might just quote you. Reminds me of Elder Bednar at stake conference saying not to pray for the Lord to take away your problems, but instead to pray for strength to handle them.
