Finding Joy in the Journey

This is my Inspiration each morning.
You'll understand when you see my pictures below!

President Thomas S. Monson
Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family.

If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly.
Stresses in our lives come regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can. But we should not let them get in the way of what is most important—and what is most important almost always involves the people around us. Often we assume that they must know how much we love them. But we should never assume; we should let them know. Wrote William Shakespeare, “They do not love that do not show their love.”
3 We will never regret the kind words spoken or the affection shown. Rather, our regrets will come if such things are omitted from our relationships with those who mean the most to us.

This is our playroom
Note: I just packed away half the toys in the
closet because Jeremy was tired of stepping
on them every night!

This is the 9 loads of laundry I just drug out of
my room and decided TODAY was the day to
finally fold them. Jeremy will be glad to know
that we REALLY DO have carpet in our bedroom!!
I am so grateful for a prophet who gives us the council
we need to lift our lives and inspire us to be better and
gives us the perspective we need to accomplish all
we have to do! I love General Conference.
