Women

On Saturday (after a RAGING rummage sale at Conner's school, we made some good $$) I went to my church's Women's Conference.

I learned a lot of things at it.  I'm so glad I went. I know a lot of people like to enjoy it in their home, but because we don't travel out of our house for general conference it's nice to realy sit and enjoy a session.  REALLY take it in. :)  That's somewhat rare with a 3 child cyclone happening around me on the other sessions.

I think the biggest thing that touched my heart is how important the individual is -- to God, to the church and to each other.  I think that's a large part of why I like my job so much.  I'm definitely not dealing with masses of people at once.  It's a one on one thing, where you can really make a difference.

But, it also made me think about being a mom.  How it is SO individual and how even as a parent you want to keep things are fair as possible, but in the reality of life it's an individual thing.  Just like in Siblings without Rivalry -- each child gets what they NEED.  I think that's one of the hardest parts of having more children.  Your focus turns from little faces to the field of faces. :)  Sheesh, and I only have 3 kids!

So, I think that's what I'm going to try and focus on this week.  What does the INDIVIDUAL in my life need?  Life isn't about policies and procedures and I tend to lean that way.

How do you see your kids as individuals, instead of a mass? {a whining mass of needs}. :)
