Change of Focus

Sometimes life is really hard. Sometimes I get totally overwhelmed with just two kids. Sometimes after planning fun activities for my kids, my son comes home with bad reports from school and everything has to be cancelled. Sometime after hear "THAT MINES" at the top of her lungs for the 1000 time that hour, I want to pull my hair out.  Sometime I hate going to church and not learn anything. I just have to deal with a bunch of screaming, wild kids that aren't even mine. Sometimes after you start smelling an awful smell in your house you find two dead mice in your garage and a live one...and who know how many more there are. Sometime life is just hard. 

It is so easy to focus on the bad. But today I want to find the good. 

I have two beautiful children. They are such good kids. And that is just it, they are kids. Kids that love to run, scream, play, and laugh!  Oh they love to laugh!  They are the best of friends. I love that!

I have the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  I get to go and renew my covenants each week. I get to go and serve him by teaching his children each week. I know that he loves those little 3-4 year olds and I am lucky to be entrusted to be part of teaching them this Gospel that I love so much!

I have a home!  Wow, I am lucky for that!  I am so blessed that I have a garage full of food to eat anytime I want...even if some of it has to go straight to the trash now. 

I am one lucky girl!  I have really been blessed and need to remember to focus on the good and let the bad be the bokeh that makes a picture beautiful.
