What I Want To Do...

I saw this on one of my friend's blogs today and absolutely loved it. I heard the full talk last October and it has completely changed my outlook on my life. I have been really developing in my life what creating means to me. I do not have a talent with the song, the pencil, nor the acting. Nevertheless, I have many interests and talents that I can create beauty around me with. I love to document my personal and family history. I am interested in creating healthy meals. I am learning to create a system of frugal living. I am hoping to create a life of service and happiness {even in the dark times.}

Most importantly, I have created a beautiful little boy and there is nothing more in this world than I want to teach him and our future children to value each individual, to look at other needs first, and to love and follow our Heavenly Father.

There is so much in life I want to create. I am really struggling that I do not always have the opportunities to fulfill everything I would like to do right now, but I do know that I can create a moment, a tradition, and a smile EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I have seen that -------very good. I love that guy ----wonder if he'll end up being a Prophet someday. (also, would it be inappropriate to say he is very handsome??????)
I am sure you are doing many wonderful things with your life and your family. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

What a great video. I love the concept behind it. And that we can create things even if we aren't the crafty or artsy type! And remember there is a time for all seasons. When you're a mother and the kids are younger it's hard to do all that you want to. But there will be plenty of time as the kids get older to achieve those things. Take the time to enjoy this phase of your life.
