Some people may wonder whether or not a post with the above title belongs on a blog about a parenting style. For me, God goes hand in hand with my parenting. In fact, I hope that he influences every part of my parenting. I have been hoping to write this post all week, but today is the first time that my thoughts are coherent enough to really write anything understandable.
On Sunday, I had a lovely time at church. When we got to Sacrament meeting, Jackie asked to go sit with an older couple in the branch (whom she calls Papa and Grandma with their surname.) Then, Ben went to sleep within the first 15 minutes, so I got to listen to the talks! Listening to those talks was a special gift to me right now. The speaker was talking on this talk by President Henry B. Eyring. It gave me the thought that I need to be more grateful in my life. President Eyring started talking about how he learned to write things down, and he started writing how he could see "the hand of God" in his life. This blog is sort of my journal. There are written posts that I haven't published because they're only for my personal journal. However, at the bottom of each post, I am going to write how I've seen the hand of God in my life. I hope that it will help me be more grateful for my blessings and change my focus so that I will also become a better mom.
I've seen God's hand in my life this week by the fact that he put Rob and I so close to Rob's parents, and they've been so wonderful helping us through all this illness.
