100 days

Wednesday was the 100th day of school. 100 plus days of our lives gone in a blink. I paused to think about what wonderful things I accomplished in those 100 plus days and although I was richly blessed to be with my family and friends during that time, I feel like I want to do better at making every day of my life count for something a little above the ordinary. As President Hinckley says, we need to strive for excellence. I've been striving for excellence the past few weeks in taking care of my body (working out, eating better) in caring for my home and family (washing my dishes and making dinner every night) and in my spiritual growth (studying scriptures, the ensign and praying more fervently) and now I want to push myself even further. I need to write more, edit my novel, enter more contests, get a writer's chapter started here in Snowflake, be more prayerful about my calling and get back into the grove of visiting teaching (I really slacked through the holidays). Each day is a blessing, another chance to excel. Here's to the next 100 days. May they be the best yet!
