It's like a favorite holiday.
We all anticipate and plan our favorite General Conference Weekend food for days and days.
The kids all come home so we can cook, visit, play games and partake of a inspirational feast that fills us up both physically and spiritually.
Saturday morning comes and in our PJ's, we all pile on the couch and every available chair and eat breakfast and watch the morning session of General Conference.
It is wonderful!
We had an especially terrific and unexpected treat this weekend. Karianne and Greg just happened to be passing through Salt Lake City on their way home from their delayed honeymoon in Hawaii. We thought we were just going to take them out to lunch during a four hour layover but instead we got to bring them home with us - hip hip hooray!
A Favorite GC moment - I know I take my proximity to the temple for granted, sad but true. It was just delightful when President Monson announced a new temple in Fort Lauderdale FL, and Kelsie's roommate, who is from Fort Lauderdale literally jumped up off of the couch and cheered! I'm humbled . . . I need to be better . . .
Here is one of our favorite GC weekend foods: What are some of your favorites?
Did you have a favorite inspirational message?
So many good thoughts, but I so enjoyed Elder Bednars message on showing and expressing love to family members. To parents, and children, for everyone. "We should remember that saying 'I love you' is only a beginning. We need to say it, we need to mean it, and most importantly we need to consistently show it. We need to both express and demonstrate love." A wonderful thought! I don't think there's anyone who couldn't relate to his antidotes concerning the FHE and scripture study episodes of his family. We're all so similar in so many ways . . .
