Treasure the doing a little more
and the getting done a little less.

A Princess, a Cowgil and Cowboys
One Sunday in December, the kids spent the afternoon in an imaginary world. The kids dug through the dress up box and found some fun things to dress up as.
It was very enjoyable to hear the kids interact in their imaginary world together. I love it when they treat each other with love and kindness and get along so well. It is moments like these that make me treasure my role as their mother in this stage of their life and makes me wish for time to slow down just a little bit more.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
