Quiet

It's been really quiet around the hospital today.... I know that's a good thing, but it makes for a very long day! I've got family time scheduled later today that I'll be waiting to indulge in.

This morning I decided to read through the whole Ensign and the idea must have come as inspiration because there were so many wonderful thoughts that I was able to apply to myself which brought me peace today. I know these thoughts will apply to so many of you, as well, who will read this so I want to share a little of one of the messages...they are words from one of the servants of the Lord....

"You are an essential part of our Heavenly Father's plan for eternal happiness; you are endowed with a divine birthright..."

"May I invite you to rise to the great potential within you...Do the best you can and the Lord will provide the rest. Have faith and confidence in Him, and you will see miracles happen in your life and the lives of your loved ones..."

"My dear sisters, as you live your daily life with all its blessings and challenges, let me assure you that the Lord loves you. He knows you. He listens to your prayers, and He answers those prayers...He wants you to succeed in this life and in eternity."

"Brethren, I pray that we as priesthood holders - as husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and friends of these choice women - may see these women as the Lord sees them, as daughters of God with limitless potential to influence the world for good."
- President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Yesterday I was grateful for yummy smelling lotion, foot massages, and clean underwear.
Today I'm grateful for the smell and taste of fresh peaches, hugs and kisses from loved ones and hot showers.

I love that last quote... "limitless potential"... isn't that the truth.
