Prayers and Becoming Better












Jack has really taken to folding his arms and attempting reverence for prayer time; it is so sweet and adorable. It's amazing how his small, sweet example reminds me to do better and be better. An interesting thing was said by a new father in our ward last week, he said that he wants to be better because his children deserve better. I agree. I want to be better because Jack deserves the best and I need to always strive to be the best I can. I try to not do this by comparing myself to others because this just leaves me feeling inadequate. Instead, I just compare myself to myself. By comparing myself to how I was yesterday and analysing what I can improve upon and how I have grown I will get a little better each day.

Good idea, I constantly compare myself to others and feel majorly inadequate. I should be proud because today I took a shower before 8:00! Jack looks a bit like Sam in that first picture. Sam loves folding his arms and if Rex isn't saying the prayer is typically more reverent than Rex.

I also need to stop comparing! Thank you for the great reminder. I love that second picture. It is so cute of both of you.

That's a great message to try to live by Jess. You are always a great example to me. Thank you for coming to our party last night. It was great to see you guys. Jack is so sweet, I hope we can try to get together more often and let the little cousins play. Hope you are feeling better, Jessica
