A Favorite Weekend

My spiritual batteries are recharged.

I love General Conference. I love hearing the words of the prophet and apostles. I love being reminded to be grateful for my many blessings. I love listening to the beautiful hymns sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the other choirs.

I love visiting with Utah Dad's family. I love the Reuben sandwiches we always have for dinner after the Saturday afternoon session and the ice cream sundaes when the guys get home from the Priesthood session.

I love that there are so many extra eyes looking out for my children. I love that my in-laws watched my kids so Utah Dad and I could run to DownEast Basics for a mini shopping spree between the Saturday sessions. (By the way, don't miss their pink sale. I picked up several pink T-shirts for just $5 each.) I love the back massage I got from my nephew's girlfriend. I love the pleasant weather even though it is completely crazy that the maple tree in my in-law's yard (up the canyon) is still green and I'm glad that it's raining now.

I always try to think of a theme for each conference and a verse from our family's scripture study tonight seemed to sum up this conference best for me:

For I say unto you that whatsoever is good cometh from God, and whatsoever is evil cometh from the devil.
-Alma 5:40

I hope you all had a fabulous conference weekend too.
