'"the soul has greater need of the ideal than the real. it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live."
celeb sighting number two. elder scott was in magleby's fresh today.
let me tell you about work today. it was packed. line to the door packed, no where to sit packed, thirty minute wait for your food packed...and it was like that from 8 am to 2 pm. we were all so stressed and i have just been struggling this week anyways so i was not in the best mood all morning. sarah was at the register and when things had slowed down she said elder scott was in the restaurant. i immediately wanted to go meet him but we both didn't want to be those annoying girls who won't let the man enjoy a peaceful lunch with his family. sarah ended up asking a man he was with if it would be ok to go meet him. he said of course and we went over there with butterflies in our stomachs. elder scott gave us both hugs and included with the hug was a cheek to cheek touch. honestly, nothing else would have turned my mood around. he was so sincere, so nice and i felt extremely lucky to have met him. it was one of those moments that caused me to evaluate myself. why can't i be more like him? i had just spent all morning being grumpy, impatient, self centered, and angry. but for what? was it really so hard to keep a good attitude, let things roll off my shoulder, and be more christ like? meeting elder scott and seeing of his absolute humility, kindness and charity inspired me. it inspired me to live the ideal way that i know we all should.
