Last night at a world-wide conference held for all the women of my church, I learned some very valuable tools to help me find greater fulfillment in my role as a woman, wife and mother. Some simple yet valuable words of wisdom were relayed by President Uchtdorf when he said "find wonder and light in the smallest circumstances" and turn "the mundane into the majestic."
Right now the Oakden Family future is anything but certain and far from magnificent. And there is nothing extraordinary about what I do each day. I'm not busy scheduling marketing events for marathons, running a company website, managing inventory like I used to do. My life now is pretty mundane. But the flip side is that it simply is magnificent. So so so magnificent. And I do find it completely AWESOME that I get to witness someone exploring the world for the very first time and finding joy in something so simple as a waterbottle.
