Something I need to work on a little more

I love this Mormon Messages video. This is something I need to work on a little more each day. Not just being in the same room with my daughter, but taking the time to get down on the floor and really play with her, listen to her, and learn what she has to say. May we all try and do just a little better as parents, teachers, and mentors of young people. :)

Thank you, Katie. This was an excellent reminder. I need to close the laptop more often when the grandchildren are around!

I do remember that I loved talking with you kids in the car when I was driving you to your activities. I'm glad I got to be a mom in the pre-iPod and earphone days.

Dear Katie,

I want to thank you for sharing these messages on your blog. I wasn't raised with a religion and must confess to not knowing much about the mormon believe, but I am touched every time again when I see these messages on your site. They inspire me, move me, and make me want to know more about the thoughts behind them. Thanks again for sharing!

This video totally reminds me of my mom. She was a great example of this for me! I just hope that when I have kids I'll remember how important it was to me that she always took time to listen.
