This Mormon Messages video, "My New Life" has changed me. I had never seen it before, maybe you have, but there was something incredibly special and humbling about it. How often do I take everything in my life for granted? How often do I go throughout life just day to day without stopping to look at the beauties that are around me, including my family? Life can change in less than a second, and if we're not careful, we may miss the big picture. We may miss that everything we have is on loan to us from a loving Heavenly Father who loves us more than we could ever imagine.
Next time you see or talk to a family member or good friend, tell them you love them. How often do we forget to do that. I know I do. There are so many opportunities to look beyond ourselves, to see farther than we think we can. This week, I am going to try to look for the little blessings, and thank Heavenly Father every night for them. Join me?
