Marjorie Hinckley

Today I feel like I have really had my eyes opened up. This week I have felt very neglected by my loving husband. He has just been getting home late from work, going to scouts, having home teaching appointments, working out, going camping with the scouts. Of course I know if he could have, he would have spent every minute with me , but I wasn't thinking this at the time. I remember thinking in college sometimes that I would love to be single and just live in New York and have an awesome career all my life, but during this week I realized that I could have never lived that life. I love having someone to come home to and the excitement of one day having kids.
Greg and I went to stake conference today and one of the ladies talks really hit me. It was about supporting the priesthood and our husbands. I felt like it was totally geared towards me and how this week I really needed to stop being so selfish. Looking back on this week I should have been more understanding and grateful that Greg is so diligent in fulfilling his calling and that he is such a hard worker. I should have been more grateful for the time we did have because I know there are tons more women out there who see their husbands less than me.
I started thinking about Marjorie Hinckley, about all the things that I have read about her. She was such an AMAZING women. She truly is a great example to me of honoring and supporting the priesthood, of being an amazing mother, being patient and christlike. I hope to be even a tiny bit like her....and as cute :)

Love her! I'm glad we have a whole lifetime to become as amazing as she is. I'm sure she had her moments like we all do, but always focuses on the good...which is what I need to do more of. :)
