Where Is She Now?

I haven't blogged in over a month.  What's up with that?  That's not a good sign!  This year isn't starting out very well.  Some of my goals need to be readdressed already.  I'm busy though and that's been the problem.  It seems I'm on the run every waking moment.  Between everything I need to do and want to do (if I get that far), I have been substitute teaching.  I also have been sick.

I won't bore you with my list of doings, but I look over the month and am surprised at the many things I accomplished and yet there is a lot that has gone to the wayside.  Keeping busy is a good thing - no reason to be idle, but I don't know that I can keep up my January pace.  Being sick has slowed me down.  I'm pondering my situation.  Balance and temperance are key words to live by.

"And now I would that ye should be humble, and be submissive and gentle; easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive."  Alma 7:23

"Learning to be temperate
in all things
is a spiritual gift
through the Holy Ghost."
Elder Kent D. Watson,


  1. Thank you for this post- my whole last year was way too busy! I am going to read this article. Inviting and listening to the Holy Ghost is the key! Hope you feel better soon and that this month is not sooo busy!

  2. I love that last quote, I'm going to read the whole talk, I could do with some temperance too. Sorry to hear your feeling down, hope your health returns quickly.
