Every time I read this quote, it means something completely different to me. Which, I guess, is the point. How often do we say or think a variation of, "When this happens, I'll finally be able to do that" or "I'll finally be able to be happy when this happens."
It's so important to make sure we are enjoying the stage of life we're currently in....and that we're doing whatever it is that we're doing with everything we've got! (Sister Hinckley includes in her quote about these "assignments", "It may be to get an education, it may be to rear children in righteousness, it may be to be a grandparent, it may be to care for and relieve the suffering of someone you love, it may be to do a job in the most excellent way possible, it may be to support someone who has a difficult assignment of their own.") Every stage has it's challenges, but each one also has it's up-sides or benefits.
I've gone through a lot of times where I've wanted the next phase of life to come quickly, and looking back, I wish that I had just enjoyed it. I have to admit though, that this stage of my life is turning out to be a favorite of mine.
2 adorable, sweet as sugar boys, who love to play and eat lots of goldfish. We have a good time. :-) I know this stage is going to change so quickly, so I'm trying to enjoy every minute of it.
Are you thinking about something you're enjoying about your current stage of life? And how you can do, whatever it is that you're supposed to be doing, with your whole heart? I hope so!
Happy Friday, friends!
PS. I hope you'll link up with me on Monday for September's Favorite Things!
