Women.  I’m ever amazed at the feelings of validation I feel without even knowing I needed to feel them.  I can observe a conversation taking place between two women and feel validated just by listening.  Today my friends, without even knowing it,  helped me reconnect with the woman in me and it was nice to know she’s closer than I thought.  🙂 Yes, I am grateful for the women in my life and I am grateful to be a woman!

Today I am grateful for communication.  When all seems dark because of a misunderstanding it only takes a simple communication to see the light.

Not one post in November….not O.N.E! How can that be? This is the life I’ve created for myself; entire months slipping by undetected  with those months turning into years. Must repent!!

My bad habit

I have this really bad habit that I’ve become acutely aware of because of how much it is affecting my family. I have noticed that I take care of the urgent at the expense of the what’s really important such as creating charts and schedules to create order in my home instead of saying my morning prayers. I rationalize it by saying that I will have more time to pray if I can become more organized, but instead I feel like I’m always catching up.

I know that I need to start doing the important things. It sounds to me like I need to evaluate what is really important to me in my life. Hmmm…. This has been a good session today. 🙂  Let the evaluating begin!

I knew that reading scriptures in the morning had been a blessing to us, but I didn’t know how much until a friend asked me this morning how I was able to juggle being the Primary president and taking care of my family. I told her that I only felt this was possible through our daily habit of reading scriptures as a family. Starting off the day with this activity helps me remember my priorities. I literally feel blinders being put on me when I need to focus on my family more than my calling, then when my calling needs attention, the blinders are removed and I know how to move forward. It’s been an interesting and joyful experience and one I hope others can enjoy. Again, I contribute all of that to family scripture study. I’m not sure how it works, but it does. One day when the veil is removed I am sure I will be able to make sense of all of this and understand what made these blessings available to me and my family.
