The most battling day of the week for me is... Sunday. At church I feel like I'm spending most of the time in the hallway, because of our curious (& quite noisy) little Lucy. She is all over the place! I'm thankful I found a modest dress that keeps me from flashing everyone, because I'm bending over chasing her around the whole time! Ha! But really, it's been pretty crazy. I don't have the energy for this! I feel like every week I ask myself "...Why am I even here!? Shouldn't this be my day of rest!?" While, yes.. We are spending most of the time playing with the hangers in the hallway.. (Best distraction ever PS.) But I keep reminding myself how important that it is that we are there. Even though Lucy is super young, I love teaching her that this is what we do! We go to church on Sunday, and it is as simple as that. I hope that one day, as she gains her own testimony and will understand the importance too. :)
On a different note, Brad and I realized that we are sometimes out of town 3 out of the 4 Sundays in the month. We usually play the "...But we're on vacation!" card, and skip church when we are away. I started feeling our light & happiness fading when we weren't attending church every week! SO we made a new goal. Wherever we are in the world, we are finding an LDS church to attend. No exceptions! Because it is a priority. I have already felt so much more light and happiness in my life after setting this goal!
