Just Be A Happy One

I attended a Relief Society Meeting a few weeks back.  Someone shared a short thought and a few things stuck with me.

She made a comment about a headline she saw,
"Stop Worrying about being a Better MOM, and Just Be a Happy One!"

I've thought a lot about that.  I think that many of us are naturally good mothers.  I think that by making living the gospel and teaching our children to love the gospel, the small stuff falls into place.  AND I think it's important to teach our children to BE HAPPY BY EXAMPLE.  Raising children is suppose to be a joy.  It is a joy, it is also very challenging.  I want me kids to know that I love them and I love being with me.  I can do this by being happier around them.  And same with my husband.  A lesson to learn, but it's harder to implement. 

Another part of the thought added another book to my "To-Read" List. 


Another Sister shared about some things she learned about the Relief Society presidents.  And it made me realize that I really don't know very much about these women.  I know Relief Society is important, but I have done very little reading about it.  This sister shared her testimony about how knowing these women has strengthened her and her testimony of Relief Society.  So, it's on my read list.
