Why Bother?

Church... Why bother? I have no idea. I am serving as the 2nd Counselor in the primary. Every time I go to church it feels like wow, what a waste. Today, I saw an old friend Kathy who I have not seen for years. At the time I was holding 2 crying children one in each arm, and neither were mine.... These cannot be yours she says.. No, mine is in the room in the back laying on the floor crying by himself, because there are not enough arms to go around....
Well I hope somebody felt the spirit today, cause it sure wasn't me. Maybe one day someone will hold my child, while I try and learn of Jesus... Just not today.

Oh Keri,
My Wish for today is that I could have held Bode and rocked him, and told him about how lucky he is to have you as his Mom! I came home crying after Sara's talk - I don't know why church was so hard today, but it was! Mom had a terrible church day today too. Please know that you are not alone, and that your Heavenly Father sees your sacrifices and wishes to reward you openly for all the wonderful, loving, kind, compassion, totally selfless acts of kindness you offer every single minute of your life! I see many of them, and only hear of others, as I stand amazed at all you do! I totally appreciate you Keri! Thank you for hugging children who needed hugs today! I wish I could hug YOU!

Lots of Love,
Marta
