The best parts of today

The best parts of today were...

...hearing Laura Lingman give her talk in Sacrament Meeting. She just returned home last week from the Billings Montana mission. Oh, she has grown and matured so much - she is an amazing lady.
...realizing that I had picked a good hymn for the RS practice hymn today (I'm the chorister). It turned out to be a good introduction to the lesson, which I hadn't realized when I selected it, so I think I had some help.
...going with Mark to visit Kent Price in the hospital. Kent was being cheerful and brave, even though it turns out that he has a rare condition (Churg-Strauss Syndrome) that will make his life a lot more difficult from here on out.
...sitting here finishing up my lesson plan for tomorrow while Mark practices his piano lesson on the electronic keyboard we bought for his birthday. It's just quiet and peaceful together here.

Have I mentioned how much I love this guy? Here's a great photo from Sparks Lake last summer - Dorothy snapped it - me paddling, Mark acting as anchor. Hah!

There's something symbolic about this photo, I think. I'm just not quite sure what it is. Hahaha.

Dorothy said...

Symbolic? Hmmm. Maybe it's about Kathy leading the way to adventure and Mark is along for the ride?

Or, maybe it's Mark that ready for excitement and Kathy is a not moving fast enough to suit his plans?

Or, it could be just another "Play Day" memory that always brings a smile.

(I was there...it WAS fun. :)

An anchor? I thought he was water skiing!

Yeah, that's what he said, too. He kept telling me to paddle faster so he could get out of the water! Hah! Believe me, he was an anchor.
