This was a wonderful past few days. I have been able to reconnect with my creative side and get some much needed creativity. School has been out for 2 days this week and I spent my days doing my favorite thing... scrapbooking.
The same weekend I found out about the lump in my thyroid, President Uchdorf spoke at the Relief Society General Broadcast and gave a talk I felt just for me. He spoke of trials and challenges and how to combat them. He gave 2 solutions to pick yourself up.
- CREATE something - make something from nothing. It gives you great power and a feeling of success.
- CHARITY to others - doing something for someone else helps you forget about your problems for a while and makes your burden lighter.
I can tell you these 2 things have been helping me survive the past few weeks. I still have to wait one more week for the biopsy, then who knows.... but for today...
I will just CREATE!
