We had Stake Conference today, but we didn't go. Our beloved Stake President was released b/c he has been called as an Area 70. We didn't go, b/c Frank & I went over to Mom & Dad's house to talk w/ Pam. Her 7 year old grandson was killed in a tragic car accident on Friday night, and she's been staying at Mom & Dad's house & using my blue car to get around and take care of funeral arrangements. She wanted to talk, and she also needed a blessing. So many tears were shed, but the Spirit was also really strong. Nate stopped by, and so he and Frank gave her a blessing.
Sis. Jones chicken w/ rice & a salad for lunch. Everyone liked it, but it will take some adjusting to figure out what they do and don't like to eat. I love being able to sit down together as a family and enjoy a meal and talk.
"But the most beautiful things in life are not things. They're people, and places, and memories, and pictures. They're feelings, and moments, and smiles, and laughter."
I think that's the perfect way to sum up this weekend. It was full of all of those things and more. After everyone left, Autumn & I cleaned up the house a little bit and then just vegged out & rested. It was a FULL weekend!
