How's your daily routine? Are you like me and when school starts, routine returns? I'm certain that even once the kids are all grown it'll be the same. My parents told me that the year their last child left home, when school started the two of them went school supply shopping anyway. They loved walking the aisles with the fresh smell of new pencils and notebooks ...
There's just something about routine.
Part of my routine has included beginning Loa's fitness program. Yesterday I turned on my iPad to help get me through my eliptical exercise and I listened to something that really lifted me.
Want to read an inspiring message? It'll take you about 10 minutes, but is well worth the time. It's called "The Infinite Power of Hope" by Dieter F. Uchtdorf and can be read here.
A couple of excerpts that have inspired me:
"Hope ... is like the beam of sunlight rising up and above the horizon of our present circumstances."
"We learn to cultivate hope the same way we learn to walk, one step at a time."
"The brighter our hope, the greater our faith. The stronger our hope, the purer our charity."
Ok all my friends ... big smiles and lots of hope today for all of us!
