Busyness of Our Lives

I ran across this quote today.  I've been really thinking about "the important things" and what I focus my energy on and have been trying to redirect some of that limited energy on some very important things.

“We become so caught up in the busyness of our lives. Were we to step back, however, and take a good look at what we’re doing, we may find that we have immersed ourselves in the ‘thick of thin things.’ In other words, too often we spend most of our time taking care of the things which do not really matter much at all in the grand scheme of things, neglecting those more important causes.”

~Thomas S. Monson, “What Have I Done for Someone Today?” Ensign, Nov. 2009, 85

I have, however, focused some energy on a couple of fun projects in the last couple of weeks.  I will be photographing them in the next couple of days so I can share them with you!

Inky Smiles!

P.S. This post almost mirrors my FB post about 2 minutes ago. How strange is that?!?!?

I've seen a few posts with this sentiment lately...focus on the important stuff! But I really do miss seeing your creations!
