If you want my thoughts

A friend just emailed me this quote and asked me what I thought:
 
" Men and women have different but equally valued roles. Just as a woman cannot conceive a child without a man, so a man cannot fully exercise the power of the priesthood to establish an eternal family without a woman. In other words, in the eternal perspective, both the procreative power and the priesthood power are shared by husband and wife."
—M. Russell Ballard

I read it twice. I thought long and hard, and then I responded that I am probably not the person she should ask at this moment.

I'm not bitter. I'm hurt, deeper than most people guess. And I'm struggling. 


I'm climbing the first of the Seven Peaks tomorrow morning--Spanish Fork Peak. I'm probably going alone.
