The little things I do within the walls of my home matter and make a difference.
|President Monson, Prophet, Seer, Revelator|
I do not think I can more clearly reiterate this message. I heard it loud and clear through every session. I also would like to admit that I had a huge panic attack about being completely responsible for Callum's well-being. There were plenty of what if questions running through my mind. I had a bit more understanding for why parents always say they wish children could just stay little. It is worrisome to think that some day I will have to send him to school by himself to make choices. That had not really happened to me until watching conference this time.
And of course, the answer I received to all of these what if questions goes directly back to by big take away aforementioned. Thank you, especially, for Elder Oaks and his strong words on families. I cannot make choices for him. What I can do is teach him the gospel through my actions, words, and deeds. The home is the one place where my influence can make a lasting impression. With this in mind, I walk away with a stronger resolve to be the influential mother that Callum deserves.
