celebrate goodness

Nov 15, 2012

Most people carrying heavy loads begin to doubt themselves and their own worth. We lighten their loads when we are patient with their weaknesses and celebrate whatever goodness we can see in them. The Lord does that.

Henry B. Eyring just saved my sanity by saying that.

I need to hear this.

I need to remember it.

I need to do it.

I need to live it.

My children were just as overwhelmed by the cleaning and cold water as I have been. They are carrying heavy loads of their own. I need to lighten their load by being patient with their weaknesses instead of pouncing on them because they are different than my weaknesses. Pouncing is what I did today.

Celebrating is what I will do tomorrow.
