Have an Attitude You Can Be Proud Of Even Through Trials
My brother lived and I will always be grateful for that.  That was a very significant moment for me that I have carried with me throughout all the hard times in my life. To be able to lean on my Savior in times of stress or worry or fear or doubt or whatever I am dealing with is a priceless gift. Sometimes I am slow to do it, but he is always there when I reach for Him. Faith and service got me through the death of my father. Those are two main ways I get through all the other trials in my life too.

I want to end with one more thought. Last year a good friend of mine died after a long battle with cancer. She was an amazing woman. One of the greatest that I knew. The last time I visited her I saw some quotes on her wall and refrigerator that I believe she used to keep her positive. One of them was something like “Help me to accept Thy will and not be too mad about it.” It really hit me because sometimes things just stink. Sometimes all we can do is say that prayer. Help me to accept thy will and not be too mad about it”  I am not perfect. I still get sad or even mad that I don’t have my dad physically around to give me advice, be a grandpa to my kids or take care of my mom. The Savior helps me not be “too mad,” and for that I am grateful. I know that often “life isn’t fair” but the Atonement makes life fair again.
