Carpe Diem

First of all, have you discovered Pinterest? I L.O.V.E. this website! I am collecting a lot of great ideas and finding fun things! Tonight I discovered this statement and it jogged a memory.

It was one of my last summers at Girls Camp. Our stake president came and talked to us about the future but cautioned us not to wish away our days. He said that when we're teenagers we can't wait until we're officially adults. When we're in high school, we wish we were in college. When we're single we wish we were married. When we're married without children, we'll wish we were married with children. He said that if you do that, you will wake up one day with a lot of empty days and wishes. Instead, he suggested that we each enjoy the moments of each day and live each day to the fullest. One day, all of our greatest dreams will come true, but we shouldn't miss the many miracles each day contains.
