Cultivating Gratitude #5

Today I am feeling grateful for the small promptings of the Holy Ghost. They are often as soft as butterfly kisses, so it is not always easy to feel/hear them, let alone act on them. Thursday night I had a small prompting to do something on Friday I would not normally have done: let Patch stay home from school to help his foot feel better. What's more, I thought I should take him to work with me at my mom's office.

Now, normally I am a stickler for rules and would never have let Patch miss school for a slightly achy foot. I don't like to have the kids miss school unnecessarily and then have extra schoolwork to take care of later. But for some reason I decided to follow this prompting. And I was blessed for it--in more ways than one (it did help his foot feel better, but there was an additional blessing for me personally that I can't share here).

Scripture of the Day: D&C 46:8


  1. I love how you describe the Holy Ghost promptings like butterfly kisses. I am glad you fallowed the prompting to allow him to stay home.

  2. Rebecca,
    You won a copy of my Regency Romance novel, A Very Merry Chase, but you did not leave an email address. Please send me an email address so I can send you your book.

  3. I am glad you were blessed for your decision. I am certainly curious as to what the additional blessing was--but also understand that some things are sacred and private. I also think it is so interesting how the Spirit works. Sometimes it is a powerful thought and feeling, and sometimes it is just a little thought that passes through your mind that initially seems so insignificant. I wonder how many of those I dismiss without realizing that it was a prompting. I am glad you didn't dismiss yours and that your life was blessed for it.

  4. I just love the unexpected surprises of listening to the Holy Ghost.
