My Final Bucket Filler...

Presiden Gordon B. Hinckley spoke of the sequence of events set forth in the scriptures pertaining to the creation of the earth, and all the living things and animals. He said:

"Having looked over all of this, he declared it to be good. He then created man in His own likeness and image. Then as His final creation, the crowning of His glorious work, He created woman. I like to regard Eve as His masterpiece after all that had gone before, the final work before He rested from His labors."

President Hinckley also said to us:

"I feel to invite women everywhere to rise to the great potential within you. I do not ask that you reach beyond your capacity to achieve. I hope you will simply do what you can do in the best way you know. If you do so, you will witness miracles come to pass."

I love this. I have met so many wonderful women these past few months and see such devotion to being good women. As my final bucket filler I wanted to let you all know what you have come to mean to me, and I hope that we can be all that we are able to be, but also not try to go beyond our capabilities, and set ourselves up for failure. I know we can accomplish great things if we do our best and be happy with who we are, and what we are able to do.

I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday! And don' forget that starting tomorrow our buckets will be filled by the wonderful Carissa!

excited to get to know Carissa!

I think that is a wonderful thought...over-achieving CAN lead to failure...we can only do the best we are capable...and usually that is awesome in itself!!!!
