In my last post (6 months ago), I talked about waiting patiently as Lucas grows up. He is now 3. He is potty trained and he is in a big boy bed. He is now a Sunbeam at church. All things that scared me because I didn't want him to grow up so fast especially because he doesn't have a sibling yet. These were all exciting things and I am so proud of my big boy. Now I have moved on to being anxious about him giving up naps, going to preschool, and eventually school. Once again exciting things, but hard on me because it means he is growing up. He prays everyday: "Please bless that we can get a baby." If we don't say it in our prayers, he quickly reminds us to say it. What a sweet boy. We sure love him and he brings us so much joy even if he is growing up too fast.

I have been focusing on HOPE. "Hope for a better world," "having a perfect brightness of hope," and having "hope smiling brightly before us." I have a Hope wall next to my bed with quotes about hope to help me "trust in happier days ahead."
Whenever we begin to feel
as if we can no longer go on
HOPE whispers in our ears
to remind us that we are STRONG
----Robert M Hensel
Don't you give up.
Don't you quit.
You keep walking.
You keep trying.
There is help and happiness ahead....
It will be all right in the end.
and believe in
good things to come.
-----Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings a tune-without the words
And never stops at all.
Hope anchors the soul.
