Not in Vain

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
-Emily Dickinson

I read this poem tonight and this talk this morning: https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2011/10/a-time-to-prepare?lang=eng

Theme of the day: spend more time on others.

  2. You can count like the last 4 weekends- the girls are LOVING you guys spending the night over here all the time. And this weekend too- totally spending time on others. Just because you're in an amazing cabin on Copper Mountain doesn't mean you're all about you :)
