THE WISDOM OF TAO


He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty.

Indulge Me

















































I had a reminder that Round Table was coming up, I don’t need to go to round table anymore - so I just deleted all my appointment reminders that have to do with the young men in the calendar on my PC and my Yahoo and Google calendars and my phone and my PDA.
I don’t have any other reminders except birthdays.

I just deleted all the files on my PC that had to do with the young men.

It left a big empty place on my computer.

And in my heart.

how many years have you been in young men? sam looks so little.

Matthew said...

Sam turned 12 in April, I was put in in Sept.
Sam is now 19+, so almost 7 years.
Sam seemed litter at 16 then Max did at 13.

There's a lot of love coming from those pictures. Those boys will be better men because of you.

What's next?

Matthew said...

next is mission prep teachers, Voe and I.
I guess we continue to work with the cream of the boys, that would be all of them, we just don't get to do it in fun, hard to reach places.

It's certainly the end of an era. I can't believe any of us were that young.
So many awesome high adventures.
So many crappy district campouts.

Matt,

Loved the pictures over the years... made me cry. You have been incredible and a huge factor in the success of the ward. Thank you so much for all of your service.

Someday I'll have to dig through all my old photos in the days before digital because I know I have a lot of Creed and Sam together. It is hard to believe the time goes by so fast.

wow there is so many memories here that I am blessed to have. I am amazed at the effort and love the leaders put into their work for us. And I am so grateful, these are price-less memories that we will never forget. Thank you so much!
