"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride." ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

Life really is a roller coaster. I think we need to have the downs to allow us to appreciate the ups. Unfortunately, many times it seems that there are way too many downs. I know I could use some ups!!

I agree with what Dani is a roller coaster and you do have to have the downs to know just how wonderful the ups are! Thank-you for a beautiful, thoughtful post!
