Life's chain is long and its links are strong,
because of the way they hold together.
When they are clasped from one to one,
We can stand up in stormy weather.
When one is happy or one is sad,
We feel the real emotion.
And if one's load is rather heavy
We hold out love's devotion.
I pray you will not ever frown
and feel no worth or measure.
As a one and only obscure link
And not a useful treasure.
For life is a chain,we are the links
and we all need each other;
Serving, caring, grace and mercy, kindness, understanding.
Living, loving,staying strong; by linking to one another.~LM~
We are all in this together. We need each other. Oh, how we need each other. Those of us who are old need you who are young, and hopefully, you who are young need some of us who are old...
We need deep and satisfying and loyal friendships with each other. These friendships are a necessary source of sustenance. We need to renew our faith every day. We need to lock arms and help build the kingdom so that it will roll forth and fill the whole earth.” (Marjorie Pay Hinckley)
I was struck the other day, when I was with my family,what a blessed thing it is to be able to love and appreciate one another's differences, and how there can be strength in numbers.
