Just a friendly reminder

I was in class today and they read a really awesome quote that I loved enough to write down. ( A pretty rare thing for me now a days...the words SENIORITIS is an understatement in my life right now) We went and did visits this evening with the Relief Society Presidency.  I thought to add the quote to a note that I was writing to a sister.  (We write notes to everyone we visit just letting them know we love them)  She text me and told me she was having some family troubles and that she needed that quote more than I could have ever realized.  I love moments like that.

When troubles come along–illnesses, money troubles, new kinds of temptation–he (man) is disappointed. These things, he feels, might have been necessary to rouse him and make him repent in his bad old days; but why now? Because God is forcing him on, or up, to a higher level: putting him into situations where he will have to be very much braver, or more patient, or more loving, than he ever dreamed of being before. It seems to us all unnecessary: but that is because we have not yet had the slightest notion of the tremendous thing he means to make of us. -C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
