If I were to take a magic wand to my life, there isn't much I would change. There are things on my want list (bigger house, nicer yard, more money to travel with), but at the core, I am happy with my life. I struggle - we all struggle - but I am infinitely grateful for what I have been given. That may seem like a strange thing to proclaim to the blogging world. But my existence was recently belittled, so it's been on my mind lately. We all have our own lists of things that we need in order to be happy. I feel like I have my list. I'm in a good place & on the track I need to be on. My list may be different than yours, but that's how it should be.
Months ago, I remember being challenged in Sacrament meeting to take a deep look within ourselves (Jared, was that you?). I must have heard it subconsciously amidst the battle for reverence with a 2 year old, but it stuck with me & I've found some areas that are in much-need of renovation. I want to be a better mother, friend & daughter of God. I think that being at peace with ourselves, following our Savior & knowing that we are walking the path that Heavenly Father has set for us are the things that bring happiness to our lives.
And for me, this little face brings happiness, too. I hope that we all have our own brand of happy juice.
