Gratitude

Photobucket
I stepped out back for a minute to take a picture in the beautiful morning sun......I know, shame on me for not staying down. It was just too beautiful out that I couldn't resist.

I am filled with gratitude today for all of the many phone calls, and meals, and messages, and willingness to help me from those around me. I am not used to being waited on and it has taken some getting used to. I kinda feel bad....like I don't deserve all this service. But at the same time I am so very grateful for the lessons I am learning. A few months ago it was mentioned in Relief Society that not only should we be willing to serve others but to also accept service from those around us.

And so I am trying.

When you are so use to always giving, it is really hard to switch rolls. I'm glad that you are doing it. It will be worth it to keep that adorable little one in the oven a while longer.

I know how you feel. I wish I could do something, too! Like kidnap your girls and keep them for a year.

You know that if I lived closer, you would definitely be used to being taken care of! I miss you!!!
