Day 12

Today I am thankful for trials. I have had an extremely blessed and comparatively easy life. I have always felt a great weight of responsibility to help others as a result. However, these past few months have been really difficult. It is interesting that the two major trials in my life these past few months are also blessings and ones that we hoped & prayed for, starting with a pre-term baby who won't sleep at all unless you are holding him and even then woke up 5+ times a night and ending with a move away from family & everything familiar. I will spare you all the details of our trials, but suffice it to say that so many days these passed few months I have felt completely drained. Multiple times I have asked myself "can I do this?" I'm so grateful for my Savior. I know that although my trials may be small compared to some, they are not unimportant to him. I know that he loves me and that he knows what I am going through. I know that because of the atonement I am able to be more than I am on my own. He is everything.
