Joy in the Journey

This weekend was our Stake Conference. One of the focuses of this stake conference for us was finding joy in the journey and it really hit home with me because I think its something that I often struggle with. Somedays it just feels like I'm waiting for my life to start. I'm sure just about anyone who is married and waiting for her husband to finish school so they can buy a house etc. understands. But its such a waste of my effort and my life to just wait for my life to start. I really want to resolve to find more joy in the journey.  There are so many things about our life now that are amazing and that we will never have again.  With Branden in school he is around the house alot more and is able to spend tons of time with me and with Jack. Its such an amazing opportunity for us to get to be together so much as a family and I can really see the effects in Jack's relationship with Branden. I think I just need to appreciate more of what we do have now and stop worrying about what we don't have.

I hope you are really able to do this... because it's GREAT advice!!! I can use some of that too!!! :) It's easy to look forward too much and not bask in right now. Thanks for the reminder!
