I have been pondering recently, the principle of compensation.
When Elder Wirthlin gave his talk Come What May and Love it, I remember thinking. How will I be compensated for the loss of my mom and so many other dear friends in my life? I decided I should be compensated with a cowboy husband. I decided and I waited.
And I am still waiting because that is not how The Lord works. We don't pick our blessings do we?
In all actuality I am not waiting for my compensation.
I realized this a few weeks ago.
I had been outside playing with these two kiddos.
Later that night when I was holding this one tight as he fell asleep with a fever,
I haven't given up completely on my cowboy husband.
Since you brought it up....
If you aren't an actual cowboy that's cool, you can be a cowboy on the inside.
