Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Saturday, May 22, 2010


We went to the ward breakfast this morning even though we had a carpenter coming to hang the new doors inside our house. We left a note on the front door telling him to come in and that we'd be back in a few minutes.

We got to the breakfast while they were still cooking the sausage so we got to visit a while with some of the folks that we see at church but never get to talk to. It was nice---but it was really cold (39 degrees) so we tried to sit in the sun. The three little boys (from our primary class) sitting across the table ran to sit by me and eat their breakfast. The one in the middle told his mother that I was his best friend. I was touched and really glad that we had taken care of the important stuff FIRST.

After we were home a while the carpenter and his son showed up to start on the doors. If we hadn't gone to breakfast all we would have accomplished would have been waiting for them to show up. That is the thing we do best is wait for someone to show up.

Brr! That one little boy across from you doesn't even have a jacket on!

He was shaking and shivering the whole time and that's his mother sitting by him saying her kids don't feel the cold.
