this week got off to a bit of a rocky start with some stress at work-more than the average daily stress. in a lot of ways it set the tone for the week. i've felt stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious. i keep my life pretty busy, and i generally prefer it that way. i don't always give myself time for peace and quiet. sometimes i just need to escape the hustle and bustle of life and focus on more important things.
for the past several years i've had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer in the salt lake temple. last night was my last night. i'm so grateful for the forced moments of peace, for the friendships, and for the spiritual experiences.
i started this assignment at a crazy busy time. i had no idea how to fit it in my schedule, but i knew it was the right thing for me to do. i've been so tremendously blessed, and i left last night full of emotion. finding peace is a challenge for me but also something that makes such a difference. i still can and will find peace inside the temple, but it's now up to me to find the time for it.
