We watched Porter's track meet.
We went to BYU Women's Conference.
And just enjoyed time together.
My mom is light hearted. I love that about her. She naturally doesn't take things too seriously. She didn't complain and is probably one of the easiest people in the world to get a long with.
She is friendly. She talks to others. She gives strangers compliments. She tells them how cute their kids are. She smiles.
One woman on a bus next to my mom started telling her about her problems. Everyone has hard lives. That woman didn't know that my mom just had 6 rounds of chemotherapy and was wearing a wig. Mom cheered her on and gave her encouragement.
When she left, I missed her. I missed her spirit. I think in a very, very, very small way, that is how the Nephites must have felt when Christ left them. What a blessing in our lives are people who, through their goodness, we can feel we understand Christ a little better. Those are the people that when the bell tolls for them, it tolls for all mankind.
