Cassidy just let me know that one of her good friends father just passed away this morning from a heart attack. I just feel sick inside. This is a reminder that we need to live our lives to the fullest knowing only that we have today. We need to love more and laugh more and try to enjoy every moment. I know this isn't possible every minute of every day because we know "there must needs be opposition in all things" but...... we can all improve. Today, tell those around you how much you love them. Hug someone you haven't hugged in a long time. Put aside bad feelings and forgive someone who has hurt you. Just enjoy today not knowing what tomorrow will bring.

So, do you wake up every morning wondering what the day will bring? As I listen to the radio, television, news, etc. it would seem easy to be overwhelmed. Right now, I just take it one day at a time. If I think too much about the future, it feel somewhat nervous. But how grateful I am that we just had conference where we were instructed so well on the benefits of being optimistic and cheerful. So, amongst the strife in the world, my challenge to myself and each of you is to remember who is in charge. Remember that faith and fear cannot co-exist and that "if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.' Let's all go forward with faith and be positive, happy people. Really, anything else is letting Satan win. We are all too competitive to let that happen, right? Keep a smile on your face and a prayer in your heart and you can accomplish anything!!
