this video changed my life!

^^ I have never felt more understood or loved than after watching this video. I'm so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who knows and cares for each of us individually.

Today I had a conversation with a friend about our daily schedules and what it's like when our husbands come home and ask what we did all day. For me, sometimes I feel like I have nothing to tell him--made food, cleaned disasters, folded laundry, kept two children alive--and like I have nothing physical to show for my day. And then there are days where our activities sound really glamorous--went to the beach, walked to the bakery, visited the museum--but in all honesty, the beach was spent running the whole time to keep kids from drowning, the bakery was met with a meltdown and stealing the other's donut, and the museum lasted ten minutes because the kids kept escaping the stroller and running for the artwork. It wasn't so glamorous in the details.

But then this video put it all into perspective. You never know how your small actions might help someone else. Maybe my day wasn't so pointless after all, or maybe the frustration I feel like all the time is worth it if I did one small, good thing that day. Thank you for this video! And to all the moms out there, you might not know it, but you are doing a good job! ^^
