Last night I went with my mom and grandma to the LDS Relief Society Boradcast. I hadn't ever been to one (I usually had to work at the Disney Store) but boy was it needed. I didn't even realize how much I needed to hear the words of comfort and love until they were spoken.
The sisters were amazing and I'm going to try to do better about my visiting teaching and such, but I will say that the highlight was hearing President Uchtdorf speak to us.
He spoke of the forget-me-not flowers. (Which has a huge significance to me and the hubs anyways) and for us to realize that even though we may not have the perfectly blossomed red rose, we have those beautiful little forget-me-nots all around us.
He told us not to be too hard on ourselves for not being perfect right now as the world seems to think we need be. He told us to stop comparing our weaknesses to the strengths of others. Now I don't know bout you, but I definitely struggle with this. I want so much to be better with being cute all the time, or being crafty, or being someone everyone wants to be friends with, or model themselves after. And sometimes I forget how much I already have, in pursuit for what I think I need or want. This seems to be a recurring theme in us of the female persuasion ;)
I'm going to make a printable about forget-me-nots to help me remember not to focus so much on being a perfectly blossomed red rose, when I can be a beautifully small forget-me-not and still be all I can be ;)
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
