I am reminded that this is the season of my life. The day will come when my children will all be in school or out of the house, and I will wish for these moments with them - some of our best conversations have happened in the car. And what greater work could I be doing than shepherding these children and helping them to know that they are the most important things in my life. Yes, my life revolves around their schedules and their needs, but that is where my life SHOULD be right now. So bring on the loads of laundry, tell me last minute that you need me to take you somewhere or that you need a batch of brownies for your class project. That is what I am here for, and I hope I will never forget it! Gordon B. Hinckley said, "You will come to know that what appears today to be a sacrifice will prove instead to be the greatest investment that you will ever make." I am investing into the miracles that are my children, and I pray that my efforts can be focused in the right places to help them grow into the people they are needed to be.
