Today I talked to Lauren, she is doing pretty well...still trying to figure out all of her schedules, classes and just getting used to the whole college life. I am so excited that she is there. I miss my kids when they go away (terribly) but I am thrilled that they have the chance to grow and develop. I didn't take advantage of that opportunity at that time in my life and I believe it made a difference. I had other opportunity's, they were more hands on type of learning, but still having an education is important. I especially love that my girl's have this chance. I love this quote by Marjorie Pay Hinckley....
"DEVELOP SOME INTELLECTUAL CURIOUSTY. IF YOU HAVE IT, YOU WILL NEVER BE BORED. IF YOU HAVEN'T, CULTIVATE IT, HOLD FAST TO IT. NEVER LET IT GO. TO THE INTELLECTUALLY CURIOUS, THE WORLD WILL ALWAYS BE FULL OF MAGIC, FULL OF WONDER. YOU WILL BE INTERESTING TO YOUR FRIENDS, TO YOUR SPOUSE, AND A JOY TO YOUR CHILDREN. YOU WILL BE ALIVE TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL POSSIBILITIES OF THIS WORLD."
"One of the things that may get in the way of people being lifelong learners is that they’re not in touch with their passion. If you’re passionate about what it is you do, then you’re going to be looking for everything you can to get better at it." ~ Jack Canfield
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." ~ Mahatma Gandi
