Motivated by Love

This is the most important thing to me, and I need constant reminders. If my actions are motivated by love, then I will be in the right place at the right time. This includes even the seemingly mundane things such a cleaning the house. I want my home to be a place where my kids and husband look forward to being. I want my friends to feel welcome anytime. I just need to remember why I am doing it when I get frustrated.

This is definitely a quality that my dad possessed. It seemed as if everything he did was motivated by love.

I read a beautiful talk by Elder Uchtdorf called Love of God.

I recommend you read it tonight. It will change your perspective, I promise.

Bryce moment: He has discovered another way to suck me into a longer bedtime routine. He asks me to lay down with him on Dallin's bed. I sing to him, I cuddle him and then he is ready for bed. I am loving every minute of this routine.
