Simplicity



Why is it that as adults, we try to make things complicated?  I do it all of the time!  I appreciate little children for their constant reminder to keep things simple.
For example:  Storytime tonight.  Noah decided that he wanted to tell me a story.  This was the first time he's ever made up his own story to tell me and I was excited to hear what he would say. 
"Once upon a time, there was a girl named Dora.  And her friend, Noah.  They went to a field.  They went to Target.  Then they came home.  The End!"
I LOVED his story.
And for a great talk on the subject, I recommend reading or re-reading Elder Uchdorf's talk "Of Things That Matter Most" found here.
