GratiTuesday: Spiritually: I smile

I've been in such a rut lately. I've totally felt like this:
Except I'd switch the spiritually and physically around, because physically, I'm pretty banged up, which is making it hard to smile and I do kind of feel like death....although I'm sure death doesn't ache so bad. Haha.

Spiritually, although I feel at a loss of what I'm supposed to do with my life right now, I am thankful that I can still find a reason to smile (even if it's hard!) because I know who I am and I know God's plan....his eternal plan. I know the things that I am supposed to do to please Him and I'm trying my hardest to do those things. That's what keeps me going, knowing that even if I feel like the above in all other ways, my Heavenly Father knows what is right for me and my Savior knows exactly how I feel. Even if I don't have the things I desperately want right now, I know I have better things waiting for me and I'm praying every single minute for the patience to endure well enough to get those things....even if I have to wait a lifetime....I know they're coming. I guess, that's reason enough to be extremely thankful and I am. It's a true blessing to know who you are and to know there's a plan. I am grateful every single moment for that knowledge...and gratitude always seems to help me in my ruts. I'm thankful to have GratiTuesdays back.

I am happy to see that you are continuing with your blog. This morning for our family scripture study we read D&C 45, which talks about the millennium and that it will be a time to raise children without sin. We explained to the kids that those who lose children in this life will have the opportunity to raise them in the millennium and used your family as an example of two sweet spirits waiting to be reunited with their family to be raised in such a peaceful time. Just wanted to know we were thinking of you and your babies.
