Michelle called me a few weeks ago to make plans to take our Mother to Yellowstone & the Tetons to celebrate surviving chemotherapy (footnote 2). It just so happened to fall on General Conference weekend, which I've watched religiously since becoming an adult. I don't know if you've ever been faced with choosing between two good things... but for me it has always been the case that when faced with choosing between two things... knowing I could only do one... I would feel a sense of doom... either way, I end up feeling guilty or at least making a choice is like pulling teeth. But just a few weeks prior to my sister's call... while sitting in church.... I heard a great talk about listening to the spirit and to letting the spirit be our guide, especially when faced with multiple choices, all of which seem good. Interestingly enough I got the chance to put it into practice. The trip was fabulous!!! Sara, Sorry for leaving you in Vegas.
GC = General Conference, basically this is when LDS church members get together to listen to the prophet of the Church.
Okay, Mom is doing great, although she has temporarily lost her sense of taste and she can't really feel her toes but we are all praying for her speedy recovery. She HAD colon cancer... you would never guess her age by the way my Mom acts and the amount of energy she has despite it all.
