"I will go forward. I will smile at the rage of the tempest,
and ride fearlessly and triumphantly across the
boisterous ocean of circumstance, and the 'testimony
of Jesus" will light a lamp that will guide my vision
through the portals of mortality."
-Eliza R. Snow***
2 nights ago I received a text from my daughter while they were out on a date at Sams Club.
The text said this: "David's not done with school till next December...just fyi."
(David has always said that he will be thru with school in May)
What were said daughters' motives in sending a text with this information?
Did she not want to witness my reaction?
Did she choose this method because she's chicken?
Or was it because the sight of tears in a grown woman, especially her mother would make her queasy?
I didnt respond to the text. She experienced the sound of crickets in the night.
This is my official response:
you may insert assumed inflections, sarcastic sneers, and tone....whatever you feel applies...knowing me.
***Oh dear, dear Eliza...why cant I be blessed with one particle of your resolve and determination to make lemon bars from sour lemons!?!?
