Do you ever have those moments where you stop and think for a minute, "WOW! This is my life!" Whether for the good or the bad?
I remember being a teenager and wondering where I was going to be when I was older. Wondering if I was going to get married and have children before I was 30. Wondering if my husband would be cute, and if I would have boys or girls? I remember also thinking that it would be a long time before any of that happened. And well, here I am! I am married to a very handsome and WONDERFUL man! And I have the 2 cutest little girls imaginable! And 10 years ago, I could not have imagined it being this great! The love you have for your children is not something you can imagine, until you have them. And once you do know that love, WOW, how can you ever describe it in words!?
Then there are those moments when you say, "WOW, this is my life?" Like today when I was walking through the store looking at things I wish I could buy, but can't. And I start to feel bad for myself because I have a small house, with only 1 bathroom. I don't have the money to go on trips, or do all the fun things that I want to do. I start to complain and wish I had more. And then I stop and think about how silly all those "things" are. And I am thankful for what I have, I may have a small house, but it is my house. I may not be able to just grab things off of the shelf and buy it, but I have what I need! I may not be able to go on all the trips I would want to, but I have fun with my family here at home! I am able to stay home with my children, and that my friends is so worth it to me. How blessed I feel to be able to do that. And how thankful I am to my husband for making it possible. He works so hard to provide for us, and I love him dearly and deeply for that.
May we always remember that we all have a purpose in this life. May we always being willing to get down on bended knee and thank our Heavenly Father for what we have. Though there will be times in our lives when we are faced with challenges we are not sure we can overcome, let us remember to turn to the one who bled and died for us. Let us remember that we are always welcome in the arms of our Savior.
So even though we all have those moments when we feel bad for ourselves, we need to remember to stop and be thankful.
