today, i sat in sacrament meeting with callie on my lap. marcus was a few seats down holding sammy. callie laid her head on my chest and i looked over and saw sammy close to marcus. and i felt happy.
last night elder uchtdoft addressed the women of the world. he advised us not to wait for our "golden ticket" -- thinking that when we get that one thing that we are hoping for, our life will be perfect. the damage in waiting for that ticket is that we often overlook the blessings we already have in our lives. i had forgotten about that part of his address until i sat in sacrament meeting, with callie against me, and watching marcus lovingly hold our other sweet little girl.
and i counted my blessings. or, at least 3 of them.
