"Life is to be enjoyed, not endured."
Gordon B. Hinckley

Very short blog today for a few reasons. Logistically, I am running out of power on my laptop and I normally need some time to think and write. And, although the ipad has juice, I can't think and write on an ipad. And then much more importantly, I am enjoying a special treat with a friend this weekend. We have taken off for three days... to a nice spot where all is quiet, the scenery is amazing... and the friendship can enjoy the solitude.

As I have grown older, I have realized more and more how much this quote is crucially important for me to "get" and to get now. We just spent the afternoon talking about how our kids have grown and taking on their first important career-focused jobs, how we used to do things in our own jobs that we really enjoyed, how quickly time passes.

So, dear friends, today is about me just enjoying my friendship and not too much time here. I will touch base again tomorrow for a snippet of time and then get back to self reflection more on Sunday.

May you also enjoy your life in earnest :)
