Strangely enough, I'm always on time (actually 10 minutes early) when I'm in charge of getting the troops ready on my own. I'm not quite sure why this is...
There was a quote given by Bishop H. Burke Peterson that I really appreciated hearing today in our Relief Society lesson given by Jen Pond on "Loving Ourselves...Becoming Women of Greater Faith"
"One of the greatest challenges is to overcome the feeling that we are unimportant, that we are not special and unique. Do you think for a moment that Heavenly Father would have sent one of His children to this earth by accident, without the possibility of a signifigant work to perform? You were preserved to come to the earth in this time for a special purpose. Not just a few of you, but all of you. There are things for each of you to do that no one else can do as well as you. If you do not prepare to do them, they will not be done. Your mission is unique and distinctive for you. Please don't make another have to take your place. He or she can't do it as well as you can. If you will let Him, I testify that our Father in Heaven will talk with you through the journey of life and inspire you to know your special purpose here."
I love being reminded about individual worth!
**Are you more efficient with your time when you don't have help?
**Do quotes on individual worth inspire you?
**Is that gooniest picture of me or what?!
