I am sorry about how sparse my posts have been lately but I didn't Bring my laptop with me only my new ipad and I am still trying to learn how to use that. This trip has been wonderful but non stop so that has added to the lack of posts too! Instead of writing at night, I have had to go to bed. My goal is to continually improve and be very careful not to get sick anymore. This morning we are going to spend the day shopping for wedding dresses for Lauren, we are so excited but I do wish Amy and Krystal could go with us...that would be so much fun. But Shirley and I are fun enough right? So for my post today I wanted to share a story that I read this morning on gratitude. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day dear friends!
There is an old story of a waiter who asked a customer whether he had enjoyed the meal. The guest replied that everything was fine, but it would have been better if they had served more bread. The next day, when the man returned, the waiter doubled the amount of bread, giving him four slices instead of two, but still the man was not happy. The next day, the waiter doubled the bread again, without success.
On the fourth day, the waiter was really determined to make the man happy. And so he took a nine-foot-long (3-m) loaf of bread, cut it in half, and with a smile, served that to the customer. The waiter could scarcely wait for the man’s reaction.
After the meal, the man looked up and said, “Good as always. But I see you’re back to giving only two slices of bread.” - Dieter F. Uchtdorf
