scatter sunshine

last night as i was listening to the relief society broadcast i caught myself looking around to see if others noticed that the talks were directed to me. because they were. everything that was said was exactly what i needed to hear.

in fact, when i arrived at the broadcast i was not in the best of moods. i rushed there from getting a three hour haircut (don't ask), missed the dinner and was operating off of only sam's club samples, and could just not get comfortable on those hard-backed pews. i kept saying a silent prayer that i could change my attitude so i would be able to hear and accept the message i was about to receive.

how ironic that every talk mentioned forgetting yourself and serving others. exactly what i needed to hear. i especially loved the quote by James Perry as quoted by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf,

"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."

how grateful i am for others who share their sunshine with me. i am so grateful for a living prophet who receives revelation so that i am not walking in darkness. and i am grateful for personal revelation so that i can know for myself that the prophets words are in fact what the lord wants us to hear.
