Last night I went with my mom and grandma to the
LDS Relief Society Boradcast.
I hadn't ever been to one
(I usually had to work at the Disney Store)
but boy was it needed.
I didn't even realize how much I needed to hear the words
of comfort and love
until they were spoken.
The sisters were amazing and I'm going to try to do
better about my visiting teaching
but I will say that the highlight was hearing
President Uchtdorf speak to us women.
He spoke of the forget-me-not flowers.
(Which has a huge significance to me and the hubs anyways)
and for us to realize that even though we may not
have the perfectly blossomed red rose,
we have those beautiful little forget-me-nots all around us.
He told us not to be too hard on ourselves for not being perfect
right now as the world seems to think we need be.
He told us to stop comparing
our weaknesses to the strengths of others.
Now I don't know bout you,
but I definitely struggle with this.
I want so much to be better with being cute all the time,
or being crafty,
or being someone everyone wants to be friends with,
or model themselves after.
And sometimes I forget how much I already have,
in pursuit for what I think I need or want.
This seems to be a recurring theme in us of the female persuasion ;)
I'm going to make a printable about forget-me-nots
to help me remember not to focus so much on being a perfectly
blossomed red rose,
when I can be a beautifully small forget-me-not
and still be all I can be ;)
