Stress, Much?

I officially have too much on my plate. I thought that I would share this little tidbit of information with all of you. And in light of the fact that I am so tired (and a little bit sick) that I slept in until 10:30 am this morning, I thought I would post a little something that was read to us in Relief Society a few weeks back:

Why LDS Women Stress
As Latter Day Saint women, we are practically obsessed with engaging ourselves in good causes. Maybe its subliminal.
Glancing through the hymnal last Sunday I noted that as Sisters in Zion, we who are called to serve, are all enlisted to go marching marching forward because the world has need of willing men, to all press on scattering sunshine. We wonder if we have done any good in the world today because we have been given much and want to do what is right, keep the commandments, press forward with the Saints, choose the right, and put our shoulders to the wheel going where he wants us to go. However, as the morning breaks high on the mountain top, truth reflects upon our senses, and while we still believe that sweet is the work, we also realize that we have work enough to do ere the sun goes down.
And thus we ask thee ere we part, where can we turn for peace?

That was great. So true - I am always busy, tired and stressed out! But what do I cut out of my hectic life the dishes? the laundry? visiting teaching? family night lessons? activities for the kids? All are good things and I don't do anything to the extreme, I just do a little of everything I guess. Oh well, we just keep going huh?

Exactly. We just keep going, and hopefully with a smile on our faces!
