I am posting late today because I spent today watching General Conference.
Yes, I know that only took up 4 hours of my day, and even though I live 2500 miles from where Conference was held I still got to watch it in the comfort of my own living room with our satellite dish, and didn't have to drag the kids to the Stake Center to watch it.
(Am I totally spoiled that I have never had to do that?)
One of my kids has been away this week, and since he's the one that gets up bright and early, and gets the rest of us up bright and early, we all slept in today.
We did try to follow through with a family tradition, which is to put a puzzle together while we watch conference.
Mark decided the puzzle pieces were better stacked into towers than put together, and we didn't get it all done, but I'm sure we will over the next day or two. It's still on the coffee/cocoa table.
I enjoyed conference. There were a few talks that seemed to stand out to me along the lines of parenting. (Maybe there's a reason for that, hmm...) Also good ones about tithing, the scriptures, family histories and others.
It was also great to hear Thomas S. Monson address the church during his first conference as the President of the church and to sustain him as the Prophet, Seer, and Revelator.
What an important occasion! What an awesome man.
Sometimes I wonder why God felt I deserved to be born into a family that taught me about God, Jesus, and the fullness of their gospel from my infancy. So many have to struggle and search to find the truth and then have to excercise great courage and faith to accept it and live it.
Maybe God knows I am too weak to have to do it that way.
Still I am grateful.
Enough rambling for today.

As always, thanks for reading and continuing to reinforce and encourage me.
