Is Everything Forever??

Do you ever sit and wonder about forever? This church speaks a lot about things that are eternal. Families are forever, marraige is forever, etc. The fact that all these things are "forever" got me to my attitude eternal? Will the attitude I form here on earth be taken with me when I go? Wow...I've never had such a good reason for an attitude adjustment. Lately I have noticed a lot of talks, classes, broadcasts, handouts and such all speaking the same message to me. Get over your whining, get off your bum, and make a difference in someone's life. Is thre any sacrifice really too great to make for this gospel? If I just consider all that He sacrificed for me, consider all that He has done and will do, how could anything be too much? Sometimes I feel like I just don't have anything left to give. I'm a mom, I hold down my calling, I support my spouse, I live the gospel to the best of my ability, isn't that enough? I mean, after a day of school, kids, dishes, housework, taxi-driver, and occasional home-work helper, I am spent. I have no desire to call the people I should VT and see how they are. I wonder if I am the only one who feels...spent. It got me to thinking...what if I take these ideas with me when I go? If I'm not doing enough here, will I do enough there?? Will I aid in bringing up the kingdom of God, or will I just be a speed bump? These are the things I think about late t night while Jayson is doing homework...sorry for the odd blog.

Oh my are definately not the only one. But you must read a talk from the May Ensign. 'Daughters of God' (I think it was given my Russel Ballard?) Anyway, it's a must-read. Do it now. And could you tell me...where's my traaaaactor?
