Lay Aside the things of this World...

And seek for things of a better!! (D&C 25:10)

I spend too much of my time focused on the things of the world, making my first priorities things that don't have eternal consequences. But so often, little glimpses of eternity remind me of what is family, my relationship with God and our Savior, and the way I treat people around me.

Today, I woke up to pee in bed...not from me, from a little person who climbed in my bed in the middle of the night. It sort of made me cranky this morning. I lugged my giant king sized comforter to the laundry room. It is "macaroni and cheese" orange...per Aeryn. I love it. Just walking in there reminded me that life is good....i have an orange laundry room!!

I LOVE your orange laundry room!!

And I loved this post. SO true ... and thanks for the reminder. It seems like when Summer is VERY under way - I start to get angry with my kiddos for the silliest things. I need to sit back and remember what's important. I can't let any good moments slip through my fingers!

And ... phew that the pee wasn't you! hahahahahaha! loved that.
