Tender Mercies



I love having girls. I honestly didn't realize how much fun it would be to dress them up. I am doubly lucky because I have two at the same time.



I bore my testimony in Sacrament meeting for the first time in about forever. I feel like I should also bear it here. I feel that I have recently been so blessed by my Heavenly Father, without Him and His son Jesus Christ I would not have made it through the last year. It has been difficult, but I know we are given opportunities and obstacles in this life, and we are only given what we can bear. I know that although it has been difficult, and it will continue to be difficult, there are many reasons I have the experiences I do. The Lord prepares us for the future and to be of service to others. Mostly I am grateful for the tender mercies of the Lord, which to others may be simple and small things, but as I have experiences I know my Heavenly Father is blessing me. It can be something very, very tiny and in these past few months the tender mercies I have received are many, many tiny things hourly, daily, weekly. It has been others put in my path, or the girls doing something seemingly amazing, sleeping during church when at home they wouldn't have, or Logan saying something that couldn't have really come from him to give me comfort when I am having a particularly rough day. I love the gospel and I am lucky to be a part of it. In the name of Jesus Christ.
