Time Rushes On: To The Young Women

Before leaving the subject of the Fruit Heights 5th Ward, I have to add one more story.  On that first Sunday in July when I was sitting in Relief Society with my baby, I was surprised to glance over and see one of my former Laurels, Danielle Cox, holding her new baby.  It made me think of all the lessons we had on eternal marriage and the importance of families.  In almost a twinkle of an eye this young woman was now married and a mother, herself.  The experience made me think of how quickly time rushes on.

Within a relatively short period of time I:
 1. was a youth in the young womens program,
2. served as a youth leader,
3. watched as the youth I served got married and starting their own families, and
4. will soon see them serving in young womens programs, themselves.

It is nearly unfathomable how quickly time flies.  The circle of life continues.  It is important to take a moment to stop and reflect on the experiences we shared and how we all learn from each other.

My love to each of the young women that I've had the pleasure to work with:
