All my life I have had the privilege of coming to a happy home at the end of the day. I never realized what a tremendous blessing this was and regularly took it for granted.
I have really never had a hobby per se.
In gospel math A+B doesn’t always equal C. Do you believe that? If you have been a member of the Church for any length of time or served a mission, you know what I mean. The blessings of the gospel are apparent everywhere you look. Do you see it?
It was a particularly difficult time in my life. I had recently lost my job and was fully engaged in a career search. To be perfectly honest, recently is probably a misnomer. As I remember, the interview took place up in Woods Cross, which was a fair distance from my home, but I was desperate. At least looking back now, I concede that I was at the end of my rope.
I wouldn’t really call myself a handyman. Sure, I change the furnace filter and fix the occasional plumbing problems around the house, but my know-how and expertise is somewhat limited in this area. Yet, on occasion there comes along a job that has to be done. Such was the case recently.
This has been amazing. I trod a path this week that I have anticipated yet dreaded my whole life. More on that later. One thing I have learned through the process—the importance of good examples.
