The other day I picked Sami up from school and she came running and yelling to the car.. "I won, I actually won." She entered a writing contest at school and won 2nd place. It was a poem called "A World Without Books." She was so so proud of herself, and there I was simply amazed at the way she radiated as she told me all about the contest and that she won $10. Again, something so small and yet it brought so much happiness.
On Tuesday, the I had the opportunity to do a session at the Salt Lake Temple with my mom. It is such a privilege to live so close to the temple. It was such a privilege to go with my mom. It was a great day. As we were sitting there in the temple, I noticed the lady beside me silently weeping. It would have been such a small simple thing for me to put me hand on her knee to offer he comfort or to simply put my arm around her. I wanted too, I actually ached to do it, and yet I didn't. I am not sure if it was because of our setting or just that I didn't want to intrude on her and her deep silent pleading. Yet, I now regret not offering her some sort of comfort.
It is very interesting to see how the small and simple things effect our lives on a daily basis, whether good or bad. It is the small things that count!!!
