One Day . . .
I'll finish the cathedral quilt I started when Spencer and I got married. The pillow behind it was something I made on my mission. What in the world was I doing while on my mission, you say? Sometimes, you'll do strange things to share the gospel with a family. They taught my companion and I and we taught them. I digress, as usual.
I realize there are seasons in life. My season right now is one of giving up wants and using my time for my children. In a way, I look at my unfinished quilt and am glad it is not complete. Time with my children is precious and General Conference this past weekend recommitted my efforts in creating that time because yes, it has to be created.
