circle of life.

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found... 

today was the first time i realized how cool the lyrics are to this song. 
im usually  too busy just belting it as loud as humanly possible without
 thinking about the  meaning. it is so applicable. there are so
many times when i feel like there really  is way too much to take in. 
too much feeling and emotion for one body to handle.  too many things to learn.
 too many things to do. we often feel overwhelmed. like we are trying
to, with our small pitchers, water a field instead of a garden. i know i do.
we need to realize:
It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
that all these things we feel. all the overwhelming thoughts- they help
 us find our place on the path  unwinding. our paths are unwinding 
with every new experience, with every heartache, with  every joyous
 moment, with every new place we go, and with every new thing we learn. 
the lion king is one of my all time favorite movies (I've watched it three times
in the last 2 months)it is one of President Monson's favorite too. he quoted it 
in his talk at BYU a couple weeks ago.   anyways....
 goodbye byu. for a short three days i bid you ado.
turkey, homemade rolls, family, and a 10k are calling my name. {hallelujah}
im off like a dirty shirt.
