Just feeling especially thankful for this guy. Nothing will show you your weaknesses like marriage will and I have my fair share of improvements to make. Our life has changed so much in the last few years and sometimes it feels like I am always a step (a whole lap more like it) behind where I should be. Life is hard, challenging, stressful and exhausting and I am in need of slowing down a bit more to smell the roses and love the people in my home more fully and more selflessly with purpose and deliberate actions not just with lofty intentions. Sister Hinkley...she is the wisest of all women...
“I know it is hard for you young mothers to believe that almost before you can turn around the children will be gone and you will be alone with your husband. You had better be sure you are developing the kind of love and friendship that will be delightful and enduring. Let the children learn from your attitude that he is important. Encourage him. Be kind. It is a rough world, and he, like everyone else, is fighting to survive. Be cheerful. Don't be a whiner.”
