Simplify



My sister gave me a saying that said this simple word a few years ago.  I have it hanging in my room and I think it is the motto for my life.  I saw these cute blocks the other night and loved them too.  

I need to keep my life simple. 
Last night I reviewed my calendar and my to do list and decided what I could eliminate.  

I want to spend more time with my cute kids.  
We love the hammock outside.  
Uncle Nolan gave it to us 11 years ago when we got married.  This may be it's last summer.  


Why do we need such resilient faith? Because difficult days are ahead. Rarely in the future will it be easy or popular to be a faithful Latter-day Saint. Each of us will be tested. The Apostle Paul warned that in the latter days, those who diligently follow the Lord “shall suffer persecution.” That verypersecution can either crush you into silent weakness or motivate you to be more exemplary and courageous in your daily lives.

Looks like a wonderful moment of mom and kids. Someday when you're old and gray, you'll remember the moments like that one and be glad you made them. You're a great mom and a wonderful person!
