I was able to catch up on orthodontist payments for the kids today thanks to the the wonderful Prisbrey family. I think he works for Colgate because theirs was the family from Ogden that sent us all the dental supplies almost a year ago that still have not run out. So Steven Prisbrey is literally keeping my kids’ teeth clean and straight. Thanks for the smiles Prisbreys. I want so much to be the one to find random strangers and help lift their burdens. I hope that opportunity is in my near future. I see so much need all around me and my heart aches to be able to help more.
One thing I can do is tell you about a little girl in my sister’s ward nursery named Brooklyn just diagnosed with cancer who has to start chemo right away. When I told Amos about her last night he fell apart. He can’t imagine a toddler going through the same things he has had to go through. #brooklynsbattle
Last night Amos was so good to me even though he was struggling with his bowels and his ostomy bag overfilling in the night. He knew I hadn’t been sleeping well so he made sure dogs didn’t bother me and he even oiled the bathroom door that kept waking me up with squeaking noise.
Because of his service, I woke up with humility and gratitude. As I studied Alma Chapter 7 this morning it set my whole day off right. I have been able to accomplish more today than I usually do in a week.
I got another beautiful gift today. A company I do some website work for sent me this sign.
I absolutely love it. Thank you Jaxn Blvd.
Another cool thing happened today. I got an email from the president of the Arizona Interfaith Movement, Larry Fultz, asking if my son Porter would be willing to give a prayer at the annual Golden Rule Banquet. What an honor! This event is kind of a big deal at $85 a plate for food in a huge formal setting with famous people and elected officials. We are about to see what this skinny kid is made of.
