I find myself, many nights, as I try to fall asleep, mulling over the day's events and regretting the harsh words, rash actions, and flared temper. As I was walking on the beach the other morning, I noticed how all the footprints of the previous day had been smoothed by the night's high tide, and the beauty of an untouched shore was present once again. I thought of how the Savior's atonement does that for our souls. Our regretted acts can be "smoothed" if we are willing to use the atonement. I am grateful for each of those atoning waves that wash and smooth my misdeeds, and the opportunity of trying to become a better wife, a better mom, and a better person.
