Natalie and Sarah's Inspiration


I have discovered that life is not a series of great heroic acts. Life at its best is a matter of consistent goodness and decency, doing without fanfare that which needed to be done when it needed to be done. I have observed that it is not the genuises that make the difference in this world. I have observed that the work of the world is done largely by men and women of ordinary talent who have worked in an extraordinary manner. ~Gordon B. Hinckley

I love this quote! It means to me, we all have so much potential. We can achieve greatness in the eyes of our lord and who better to judge. We do not need the fanfare of man, the peace of knowing that we are striving daily to do as we have been taught. Isn't it wonderful that unbelievable wonders can arise from little steps, followed by little steps...and on... and on. We just have to keep doing.

There is a reason I called it Natalie and Sarah's inspiration! Sarah took the picture and this quote Natalie had on her site. I love them both

HA! Sarah! "Who took it? Where?" That's great! I have to say it is a great quote and some days I'm sure I'll need it but at this very moment of reading it, it's bringing out that I can't be everything that ordinary is what we are and ordinary is wonderful but still ordinary.... hmmm maybe I had to many chocolate donuts last night... (see my blog) :) I love you momma
