This last week has been spiritually exhausting. It is really hard to watch people progress every day and then just stop. We know the blessings Heavenly Father has in store for them and its really hard to watch them not take advantage of them and really find the happiness it brings.

In spite of the difficult week, I had a really spiritual experience. I was giving one of the sisters in the ward a blessing and during the blessing I talked about how people would be interested in the gospel through her, because of the light in her eyes. Needless to say I had no idea I was directly quoting her patriarchal blessing. I could feel warmth permeating as we gave that blessing. It was amazing.

I love all of you and really know the blessings Heavenly Father gives us are there if we are just willing to reach out and take them. He loves us and I love you.
