Friday Feelings

I need to post, and quick, because I'm afraid anyone visiting my blog for the last couple of days has been rudely met by my previous post and may think I'm awfully crass. (Well, then again, maybe I am...) I wanted to post a quote I saw today on my old grade school, growing-up-years-friend, Melissa's blog -- the most amazing blog I've seen. Visit her blog for eye candy and inspiration of all kinds. (See my blog list - lilybeanpaperie) Thanks, Melissa for posting this quote and making me think about what's important in life!
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
