Great Quote

I was cleaning out my church bag today and found this quote we got in Relief Society several weeks ago:

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenck's lawn.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed some one's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
Sister Hinckley

I LOVE this quote it is going on my fridge to remind me of what I really want!!

Okay Kim-- I totally forgot about the cigarette lighter. That is so funny! How embarassing!! That was so dumb! Yes, I can laugh about it now-- I laughed really hard when I first saw your comment. Hopefully that is not the only memory you have of my when we were young!
