Yesterday we went to the zoo, the boys had a blast. I was getting a little tired of going to the zoo, so we hadn't been in a while. Jack has grown up since the last time we went, he had so much fun, and really enjoyed looking at all the animals. I asked jack what his favorite animal was, and he told me the elephant was his favorite, Tyler told me his favorite was the snakes. It's too bad its getting so hot, because I think I enjoyed going to the zoo.

I think I am spoiled. I often get caught up in what I don't have, and forget, overlook how incredibly blessed I am. Recently I have been doing a little self reflecting, and have realized that I need to do better at improving myself, and my spirituality. It seems like it is always a matter of getting back to the basics, prayer, scripture study, etc.. I have recently started reading my scripture more consistently, I am amazed at the difference this is making, and the insights I am getting into my own life and the things I can do, and need to do to improve it. I guess life is just better when we try to focus more on the spiritual and less on the worldly. A scripture I read the other day is 2 Nephi 10: 24 it reads: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, reconcile yourselves to the will of God, and not to the will of the devil and of the flesh; and remember after you are recoiled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that you are saved. I don't know I guess what I'm saying is that I am grateful for the ability we all have to improve our lives, and do better no matter where we are spiritually.

Thanks for the post! I know what your saying. I was thinking that the other day too. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction!
