It's April!! No joke!!!

This month has been very trying and difficult for me personally. I feel stretched in most places that have no more room, and like everyone I know is having more trying times than me. As I contemplate my life today, I try to keep in mind some words that stand out to me from conference.

"We are surrounded by those in need of our attention, our encouragement, our support, our comfort, our kindness—be they family members, friends, acquaintances, or strangers. We are the Lord’s hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve an
d to lift His children. He is dependent upon each of us. Sometimes we feel that we are weak and lack the strength to rescue others, but the Lord reminds us, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40)."
Though my life's curve balls seem large to me, I hope that I am strong enough to always be the Lord's helping hands. I hope that I can make others curve balls not seem so large to them.
