Tender Mercies

My mother is HUGE on the whole concept of "tender mercies" that Elder Bednar spoke about in General Conference in the Spring of 2005. And this morning, I experienced one. I overslept by about 15 minutes and awoke in a sense of panic...we have our morning "dance" timed down to the minute and 15 minutes, well, it can blow the whole day. So I got up quickly and ran into the boys' room and this is what I found.

Sam reading Josh "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," said the Sloth. Completely dressed. Just waiting for me to get out of bed. But more importantly, loving his brother. I am so grateful for children that love each other.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
