You know what guys? Just one week into our summer vacation, and we are already having a most wonderful time together. And many of our summer wishes are coming true.
I love being with my kids. It is a blessing for sure, and I don't want to miss a moment of snuggling, and laughing, and playing. So, as you might have guessed, I probably won't be around these parts very often for the next little while. As it is, I've got things I'd like to get done for Me, ya know?
My first thoughts were that this would be a neat gift to give to an actual Beehive...you know, a young woman, because I like the explanation of the significance and symbolism of the beehive. I also really liked pp. 28-29 which says,
"When our hearts are no longer set upon the things of this world, we will no longer aspire to the honors of men or seek only to gratify our pride. Rather, we take on the Christlike qualities that Jesus taught..." such as being gentle, meek, and long-suffering, being kind without hypocrisy or guile, feeling charity towards all men, and always having virtuous thoughts. We no longer have a desire to do evil and the Holy Ghost is our constant companion.
These are definitely the wishes of my heart. And I hope that as I spend time with my children this summer, they can further help me to develop these qualities.
