September and October Mini Mission: Cacoon my Mistakes

While catching up on hand washing 2 days of dishes because of a broken dishwasher and listening  to my Hilary Weeks Station on Pandora, Julie Yardley's song "You Can Change"  really brought a message unto my heart. I knew how to summarize  the goal I have been working on in order to help me hold onto hope (my 2014 yearly goal). In the chorus Yardley sings:

"wrap your mistakes in a Cacoon and emerge a butterfly."

This year I was diagnosed with ADHD and began to constantly question my past and present actions and things I have said to people.  I have been asking myself "if there is something so wrong with my brain, how many things have I done wrong that I didn't  even know about, especially  how many other people have I inadvertently hurt or offended in some way?"  The last few weeks I have finally started  to come to terms with this ADHD challenge, accept it as part of my life, and move on from the worries about my past. 

I am learning that I cannot be one the beautiful butterfly I am meant to be without first living in  Cacoon of many mistakes and weaknesses, but someday  I really will be  able to emerge from that Cacoon and emerge a butterfly.

What mistakes can we wrap in a Cacoon today?

Dad's Opening Song: Family History

Morning Glory's scripture:
"Thou shalt thank the Lord the God in all things." D&C 59:7

Lady  Slipper's  Lesson: Jesus Christ is a good example   (see Primary 4, lesson 36)

Mom's Activity: Phase 10 Masters Edition Cooperation  (Lady Slipper learned the numbers on her cards and the rest of us  helped each other complete as many phases as we can in 4 rounds and--definitely  a different  strategy).


Treat: choose between apple cider, a cookie, or apple slices with peanut butter.

Be Inspired,
