Hi Friends,How was your weekend? Mine was great. But man am I tired today. Tired and feeling overwhelmed with everything I need to do/ should do/ want to do this week. What I really want is to take a nap and wake up to find my house looking like a model home. But baby boy just woke up and I have lost all hope of getting my house in order today. As I write that I feel silly because no matter how busy a one year old can be and no matter how much you have on your plate all hope is not lost or should not be lost. I recognize that my worries and concerns are small. I acknowledge that many many people have real life challenges that are considerable in magnitude. There are those who may be justified in giving up hope. But I plead with them and you and me to not give up. And why? Because, “hope sustains us through despair. Hope teaches that there is reason to rejoice even when all seems dark around us. And to all who suffer-to all who feel discouraged and worried-I say with love and deep concern for you, never give in. Never surrender. Never allow despair to overcome your spirit. When we have hope, we acknowledge the difficult path ahead of us, but we move forward in faith, knowing that God will see us through these times of trial.” -Dieter F. Uchtdorf
So my friends and to all out there who are feeling hopeless please never give in. Never surrender. Never allow despair to overcome your spirit. You’ve got this. You are amazing. Don’t give up.
