light burdens

Today a sweet friend held L for a while during sacrament meeting.  She even took him out while he was fussing.  Nice!  Afterward she said "I hope that gave your arms a rest."  L is delicious and this sweet friend always wants to hold him.  And I appreciated the time to just pay attention to B. 

Later I was holding him asleep at the end of RS and thinking about the "burden" of holding this sweet boy.  All of my children are so sweet.  They are mine to care for, with P, they are our burdens.  But it is light because we love the, and because they're so cute.

Similarly our "burden" of living the gospel is light when we love.
