Another conference moment, this time from Hunter....

completely touched my heart. When President Monson was talking during the Sunday morning session, I peered over to Hunter and saw little tears coming from his eyes. He looked up at me and asked, "Mom, is he telling a real story? Did that mom's little 3 year-old child die when laying right next to her?" I informed him that the story was true and he started weeping. We just cuddled and listen to the rest of the story about a German woman after WWII that lost her children, one by one, as she made a 1,000 mile trek from Prussia to West Germany. Each mention of the loss of the child brought more tears. We held each other close and cried together, for our hearts were touched by the struggles of this great woman and her strength to go on.

After conference we had a sweet discussion of Heaven and how we have a loving Heavenly Father that allows us to live with each other forever. Isn't Heavenly Father's plan so wonderful and full of love? I give thanks everyday for this knowledge that families are together forever.

That was such a beautiful talk- I think each of us felt the Spirit. What a great "gift" for Hunter to be able to recognize the Spirit so easily, and what a great mom your kids have. :)
