General Conference

It was great to be able to watch conference this weekend. I really liked Elder Ballard's talk to mothers. He quoted Anna Quindlen saying how she wished she had lived in the moment more while her children were young. She said something to the effect of " Enjoy the doing, not just the getting done". This is good advice for me! Has anyone read any of her books? Now I'm interested in reading some of her work. Something else that stood out to me was in Sister Tanner's talk. She talked about miracles in our lives today and how sometimes the miracle doesn't come until the final hour, or until we are pushed to the limits of our strength. I liked her comparison to Abraham and Isaac going forward in faith without knowing Heavenly Father would rescue Isaac at the last moment. I hope I can have that same kind of faith, even when the future is uncertain.

I am THRILLED that you are going to try the dance studio. You are too good to be wasted in a cramped garage. You have to take some leaps to go anywhere. I know you will do GREAT things and I will be your receptionist sometimes. Love, Mama
