A Filling Weekend

You know those moments in life that just seem to make it all worth it? I love those. They don't seem to come often enough, but maybe that's the beauty. I am just grateful for those tender mercies from the Lord that give me strength, perspective, hope and happiness.

Kara and I went to the Draper Temple Open House on Friday. It was a neat experience. There's just such a special calm feeling at the temple, even when it hasn't been officially dedicated yet. One of my favorite places was the Celestial room. Kara and I sat down and I watched as small kids, young parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, moms and dads, friends, all filed through, and I thought, "this is the gospel, this is what it's all about." We also got really bad manicures at a beauty school (see picture in the blog below), and cupcakes at this cupcake shop. Then we went to Stake Conference (I've never had a church meeting on a Friday night!).

Saturday I washed my car for the first time in seemingly generations! It's been beautiful here and looks to be all week, highs around 60 and sunny. I went up to SLC Saturday evening and had delicious Thai food. I totally overate this weekend.

Hope everyone else's weekend was delightful. And don't forget, when upon life's billows you are tempest tossed, when you are discouraged thinking all is lost, count your many blessings!

Well that explains the bad manicure. Hope it was free! A cupcake I could go for!

Bad manicures...and bad cupcakes? Sorry, the way you wrote that sentence made me think the cupcakes were also bad :)
