Hold on a little longer.

Today I was touched by many different things.  Church always brings me different experiences that make me that much closer to my Savior.  A story from the pulpit hit me hard.  It reminded me that I had to "Hold on a little longer."  I then came home and I found this amazing article by Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf titled "Hold on a little longer."  Here is just a piece of it: "If ever you are tempted to become discouraged or to lose faith, remember those faithful Saints who remained true in Kirtland. Hold on a little longer. You can do this! You are part of a special generation. You were prepared and preserved to live at this important time in the existence of our beautiful planet earth. You have a celestial pedigree and therefore have all the necessary talents to make your life an eternal success story."

This past week I was reminded over and over again to keep the Faith and to stay on course.  I was also reminded to "Hold on a little longer" Violet's smiles..

To "hold a little longer" the sweet moments of making sweets with my sweethearts...

To "hold on a little longer" to my hubby's hand.
To "hold on a little longer" to friendships that will last forever.
To "hold on a little longer" to great memories and great family.

And to "hold on a little longer" and know that the stresses of this life will pass.  So I am going to "hold on," and keep praying for the strength to know when to let go.
