You're Never Alone

Usually I don't post more often than every week or so. I want to give my friends a chance to read my notes or messages before I've put up something new. This couldn't wait though. This little youtube video filled me to the brim with encouragement, and reminded me yet one more time that I'm not doing this alone. As soon as I watched it, I knew I had to pass it on.

I couldn't help but relate to how Sister Dalton talks about how she feels towards those on the sidelines cheering her on. She thinks, "they don't understand. I still have so much farther to go . . ."

I've had similar thoughts these past few weeks. However this video helped me realize while my friends and family may not understand, they still love me, and are on my side. They want me to succeed and be happy, and are cheering me on. Of course the one person who knows exactly what is in my heart and precisely what I'm going through, has been with me every single step of the way, and will be there until the very end. My gratitude goes to our Savior, Jesus Christ. I can feel him pushing me forward, even on days when I'm sure my strength has run out.


  1. Liz, thank you for posting this. I felt like it was for me. The life of a pilot's wife can seem lonely but we can always rely on the Savior. He's there...always. I just want you to know that I'm cheering for you. I'm sorry that Scott is away. You will make it! I know you will. You are such an inspiration to me. I love to read what you write. Love to you from the West Coast! :)

  2. I agree. Though many people don't understand some of the stuff military spouses go through, it's still awesome to have that support. Great post!

  3. Love you, Lizzy. This is a beautiful entry.
