Two Pink Princesses

In Conference our prophet Thomas S Monson said this, 

"...may you endure.  What does it mean to endure?  I love this definition: to withstand with courage."  

I love this picture.  The two pink princesses. Grandma would hate it, and I know why.  Her hair is not done, she has on no make up, she is not fixed up to her beautiful self.  However, I love that it shows all her wrinkles...signs of living a long full life.  The whole time we were in California Great-Grandma felt terrible.  She has all sorts of aches and pains.  However, she knows the names of her GREAT-grandchildren and she shows interest in them even when she is feeling her worst.  This time we were not able to go out for dinner or breakfast like we usually love to do with Grandma.  She just didn't have her pep.  However, every morning she would say how she wanted to go out.  

It would be hard to go on when your sweetheart has been gone for a long time, and when you feel crappy all the time.  She is a great example of ENDURING.  It would take a lot of COURAGE.  Nana and Papa are a great example of enduring along with her.
