Back in September 2008 my blog was born. My friend Patty and I had talked about blogs. She asked me what I knew about them and my answer was absolutely nothing! :) As we both learned about blogs I thought she should start one and she wanted me to start one too. I wasn't on board until I attended the Relief Society General Broadcast that September evening and heard the talk that is highlighted here....
I am sure that there isn't anyone alive that would label my blog as "creative" but
when I began my blog I had no way of knowing that just a few short months later Tim would be diagnosed with cancer and that our family would begin a journey that would change us forever. Because I acted on the words of Elder Uctdorf and did what was "creative" for me, I have in turn created for my family a record of our journey these past 3 years. It is a record that will forever stand as a witness of the unmistakable and undeniable hand of God that we saw, and continue to see, in our lives.
Seeing this video clip of that September 2008 talk reminds me all over again of the importance of creating. I hope that each of us can find within us the desire to create something beautiful, worthwhile and fulfilling with our lives...whatever that may be.
