Moving Forward With a Happy Spirit

It was not until welcoming our fourth child that I realized how we have not had the time to just be for awhile. We took a break from our school lessons to get to know the new baby, but now that we've started back up again with only our core subjects, I wonder how I got it all done before baby arrived. There are meals to cook, a house to clean, school lessons to be done, and a new baby to care for.

It is easy to feel like I've failed when I don't get everything completed, but I know that I am doing what the Lord wants me to do. When I remind myself of this, I can slow down and feel more at peace. I can take the time to love my children, to nourish their spirits. In turn, my spirit is rejuvenated and I can continue forward, on even the most difficult of days.

“Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things always work out.”
–Gordon B. Hinckley
