I am truly blessed! I had such a great Mother's Day (and then I've been too busy to even get on the net to update my blog...)! I was in Salt Lake to watch my talented brothers perform and visit with my aunt, Shannon, who was visiting from Texas. Nate and the Granite Youth Symphony had their end of year concert last Thursday and Aaron performed in the mystery play Bone Chiller (more on that later). I am so proud of those two! Mother's Day morning started out perfect! We went to church with my family, and when the children were asked to come to the stage to sing we asked Liv if she wanted to go sing with the kids. She said "Yep!" and was off to catch up with the rest of the kids. Luckily the song was the same she had been practicing in our local ward, but she would've done well no matter. She waved her hands like the teacher and did some hand actions that she must've remembered from learning the song. So, I'm not one to cry in public, but I could feel the happy tears coming and gave in. But then I was just overwhelmed with joy and began to sob, that's just how happy I was! (and maybe it's cause I could feel my mom's presence!) It was perfect, and set a great mood for the rest of the day. What a treat!
