I was talking to my Dad about all the devastation that we are seeing these days and I came to the conclusion that I am ready for the Savior to come. It is exhausting and heartbreaking to see what others are going through in these last days.
We drove to Joplin a couple of weeks ago to let the kids see what happens when a tornado touches down. They understand when they hear the weather radio to go to the basement, but we didn't think they really got the whole picture.
I am inwardly embarrassed that I think my problems are bad. There is no comparison.
We have a home over our heads, food in our bellies and healthy children.
I am grateful for the gospel that gives me HOPE.
It is what gets me up in the morning.
I need to try harder with what I do during the day to show my Heavenly Father that I am grateful for those blessings.
