So-- my mom being the great person that she is, has always helped with the music programs that the elementary puts on. I think a lot of people would agree with me that for a small town (or for any school) the program is really well done down to the costumes, choreography, and songs. My sister, Maria, knowing that my mom has talked about wanting a Von Trapp family, convinced Ally to get a number together. Last night all eight children sang "Climb Every Mountain" as a surprise number at my mom's final concert (at least as a teacher).
A few weeks ago I gave a lesson about our attitudes about our divine roles. And there was a story about a mom who got sick and she said," I have always been told that 'if you have your health you have everything.' Today I realized that isn't true, because I have everything and don't have my health. . . . . Many worldly pleasures I will leave behind forever, but my family I will have throughout all eternity." When I read the story it really hit me and has come to my mind several times since. I feel truly blessed with my family that I grew up in and also with the one that I am trying to raise. I only hope that I am worthy of the trust that has been placed in me to fulfill my role in life. As suggested by the song I am going to follow every rainbow till I find my dream.
