Where I Want To Be

"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 a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
Marjorie Pay Hinckley -

I love this quote so much. My Visiting Teacher's came over to give me a lesson today where we talked about this quote and how important it is to focus on where we want to go, which is to be with our Heavenly Father. When all is said and done we will not have the 'stuff' we do today, we need to remember that the things we can take with us are our testimonies, relationships, families, talents, knowledge etc. The other stuff will not matter.
