|I have had these forget-me-not seeds in my desk drawer for a long time. I think I will plant them in the spring. I wonder if they will still grow.|
I miss living near family and being able to attend it with them--hearing my sister sing next to me during the hymns; holding my mom's hand. Laughing with my friends. After I moved away from family I made some wonderful, life-long friends. Now I have moved away from them too. Of course I have special, sweet friends here as well, but something about this time of year and this event in particular just makes me miss everyone more.
During one of the hymns, which we stood to sing, I closed my eyes and pretended that my dear friends and my family were standing beside me. It helped a little.
- To be patient with yourself
- The difference between good and foolish sacrifices
- To be happy now
- The "why" of the gospel
- That the Lord loves you
Just yesterday I was feeling sad and President Uchtdorf's admonition to "forget not that the Lord loves you" entered my mind. What a comforting and reassuring thought! The Lord loves me. Me!
He love you too.
