well - we're only a half hour into conference and i've already cried off my makeup. i'm so thankful that conference is this weekend. i think i really needed a little spiritual pick me up.
suzie asked what our favorite thing about conference is... mine - is not having to go to the schaumburg stake center for the whole weekend (it seemed like, at least) i love being able to sit here, on my couch watching and maybe folding laundry, but at least listening. as a child, i was always too focused on what old guy was head bobbing, or which of my parents had the staler breath (don't worry, neddie - dad won almost always)
so far, i'm reminded how much i love Gordon B. Hinkley, but also Thomas S. Monson. I'm also reminded how thankful I am that I was born into the family that I was. My parents have served and exemplified, and we learn best by watching - not just by being told. I'm also so thankful for the opportunity I have to repent.
