It's funny how much we pride ourselves on being "self-reliant".
It's a wonderful thing to be in a place where you don't really have to depend on anyone else...
Sometimes though, I think we become too independent and tend to push others away.
Many of the sisters I talk with are actually quite lonely...but not quite sure how to reach out to the others around them.
This week, my van has been at the body shop (getting the lock fixed from the break-in in OCTOBER...and no, I did not purposely procrastinate getting it in).
I have had to rely on my friends and ward sisters to help me with getting the kids to school, and home from school.
Typically, it stresses me out immensely to have to ask for help...but this time, I've just been hugely grateful that people are willing to help me and my family out.
I'll be calling the body shop here in a few minutes...hopefully, the van is done...but truly, this has been a blessing for me to humble myself enough to rely on others.
The Lord has given me lots of opportunities lately to be humbled, and instead of feeling frustrated, I feel blessed.
I'm grateful for the perspective of gratitude...it makes my heart happy.
I truly am reliant on God...for everything.
