For the past few days, I've been working on a project that I've wanted to do for awhile now. But everytime I wanted to start it, something came up from the holidays to a daughter having surgery. So I finally took the time to do this project and I'm so glad I did. I needed to do something that I've wanted to do. I've felt like I haven't been too productive lately. So here is what I started with.

The directory isn't a bad thing. There are many times I need a phone number and it's right there. But sometimes I think that I liked my life a little less complicated. I liked leaving work at work. I liked not knowing everything everyone was doing on FB. I've even become less of a blog reader. I used to read the blogs I like each day, but now I'm lucky if I read them once a week - because I want a break from knowing what people are doing. I hope that isn't a bad thing.
But I've decided that I will be taking a break. I don't know for how long, but I've lost the desire to be here. I will be back, but for now know that I appreciate your friendship but it will be awhile before I post again.

I am grateful to a Loving Heavenly Father that continues to speak to a living Prophet in our day and time, to help me understand His will. For His direction in my life. I am grateful to have a testimony of this. To know that my Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. That He has a plan for me. That He is aware of me and my struggles in this life and that He loves me as his child. That He wants me to return to Him.
As a parent I think it is easier to understand His love and concern for me, as I have love and concern for my children. I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior. I am grateful for His loving atonement. He has made it possible to return to my Father in Heaven through His love and sacrafice if I will only repent and live the life that He asks me to live. I do try to live a life that my Savior would be proud of. I know there are many times that I fall way short of this, but each day is a new opportunity to try again. For this I am grateful.
I love conference weekend! I am grateful for the opportunity to have the teachings of Jesus Christ in my life!
