This past weekend was General Conference for our church. What a wonderful kick-off for the week before Easter! My heart is full, and my mind and spirit have been challenged to be better and do more. It was wonderful.
Brother Uchtdorf, who is one of my favorites, reminded us that this life is not a sprint race. It is a race of endurance. A good thing to keep in mind when we are hard on ourselves for not being completely perfect in every way (nods to Mary Poppins!) I always say I may not be a show horse, but I can go the distance. He reminded me that is probably what is more important.
I am so grateful that we have this time, twice a year, to reevaluate ourselves, and to sit at the feet (so to speak) of these men who counsel us and teach us and feed our souls to help us keep going -- sort of a spiritual pit stop. I needed it. Now I can't wait for Easter!
