I was so tired I barely made it through Sacrament Meeting today. Elder Jared Stuart gave his missionary homecoming talk and he was so inspiring! He’s come so far and I am so proud of him!! I love the music at church and am so uplifted as I sing and take the sacrament. I rested at home and even got a new temple recommend today. I enjoyed visiting with friends and neighbors as I sat on the porch.
Julie Woffinden has been working with my girls on a project, and brought it over today. It’s such a beautiful quilt and has everyone’s name on it, and a quote from my husband that Julie was here to hear one day. I was on the phone with Jon telling him he was doing such a great job managing the children and taking care of our family, and wondering how he was able to put up with me. Jon said, “Come what may and love you.” Now I have that on the quilt!! It’s such a treasure!
Along with the quilt, Julie included a card that made me cry as well, and I include the portion of Hymn #273 (LDS Hymnbook): “What greater gift dost thou bestow, What greater goodness can we know. than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways strengthen our faith, enrich our days. I am so grateful for you, the Christlike people all around me. I pray the Lord will bless each of you! Love….Melanie
