The Daily Echo: The 2nd Arrow… May 21, 2018

May 21, 2018

In No Mud, No Lotus, Thich Nhat Hanh tells us that suffering is a part of life.

You can’t create a beautiful lotus flower without some stinky mud. As he says, lotuses don’t grow in marble. And… You can’t create a happy, flourishing life without some suffering. That’s just how it is. We need to embrace that reality.

In fact, Thay (as he’s known to his students) tells us that a big part of happiness is learning how to “suffer well.” We want to quit making our suffering worse than it needs to be.

The Daily Echo: Trust in the Lord… May 20, 2018

May 20, 2018

Life can be frustrating at times. Some of the roads we CHOOSE to go down are not what we thought they might be. Sometimes we choose that road because we lean to our own understanding. Other times we just follow the crowd down that road.

When we place trust only in our own knowledge, we miss out on the special relationship we could be building with our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

May 19, 2018

On my desk sits a simple plaque. It simply says “IT IS WHAT IT IS”…. Now we have all heard that phrase at some point in our lives. On today’s echo we highlight Byron Katie’s book “Loving What Is”…. How often do we ARGUE with Reality????? Think about that today. How many times do you interpret “What IS” incorrectly…..HOPING maybe it isn’t what it is???? Once we begin to fully accept what is and then DO SOMETHING about it we will stop being frustrated. Take a look and remember…. “It Is What It Is”….

The Daily Echo: You Made Me a Mom :) May 13, 2018

May 13, 2018

That wonderful quote years ago from Abraham Lincoln rings true. “All that I am I owe to my Sweet Angel Mother”. Another Mother’s Day is upon us. On this Mother’s Day 2018 we celebrate my favorite people in this world. No greater love has this world seen aside from that of our Savior than that of a Mother. My life has been blessed with almost 52 years of that unconditional love from my sweet mother. Her life has been more about me (us) than it ever has been about her. I have watched my sweet wife for almost 30 years follow the example of her sweet mother in loving with that same love. As I have enjoyed the awesomeness of being a grandfather (far far) and now (mor far) I have watched my sweet daughter in law and daughter naturally become near perfect mothers. Why is it that these women all over the world can put aside all selfish desires and do more for us than we can for ourselves? Let us all try a little harder to not only recognize Mothers for being the single greatest profession in the world, but by showing them daily how grateful we are for them. We love you Mother’s and THANK YOU…..
