"The test, then, of our soul's greatness is rather to be sought in our ability to comfort and console, our ability to help others, rather than our ability to help ourselves and crowd others down in the struggle of life." -Joseph F. Smith
This quote is always a good reminder to me about what life is really about. I was reminded of that today when i took our baby for her 6 month check up and our two year old daughter and three year old son to get their flu shots. Instead of feeling like we were a burden with all 3 kids in tow, we were welcomed with open arms by a kind nurse that instead of sticking us in an exam room and shutting the door, she stayed with us and got us settled in and made us all feel welcomed. Then the doctor came and remembered us from over 6 months ago when he last saw our baby(he is not our regular doctor but just happened to be on-call when she was born) He took the time to talk to the kids and get to know them at their level so they felt comfortable. It turned out to be such a positive experience which we were all grateful for because we had been dreading this visit!!!
