My realizations

I got an email from my sister in law that was a song from Josh Groban called You Raise Me Up. It was set to various pictures of Christ. It really helped me to feel the spirit. It made me realize how close to the Savior my children are. I had Matthew and Emma on my lap. Matthew kept saying "I like Jesus song". Every new picture that popped up he shouted in exclamation Jesus. As if he hadn't seem him in such a long time and he really missed him. The presentation made me realize how precious life really is. I had Sarah in the background saying turn it off mom. I said why honey and she said it makes me sad to know that someone killed him and it makes me want to cry. The presentation made me realize how different each one of my children are. How different they are in their emotions and how different they are in dealing with them. I absolutely love Christmas time. I love the smells , lights, and the feeling you get when you help someone else when they don't have a Christmas. But most of all I love the music that accompanies Christmas time. I realize how much I connect with music. I have always had a love of music and love to teach people through music. I have done that a lot more since I have been in Primary. A child may not be able to sit through a lecture but they really connect with music. I realize how much I love music and the affect it can have on us. I want you all to know that I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and He is our brother. He is my friend and I am so grateful to have him as my friend and I know each and everyone of us can have all of these same "realizations". We are all different and we connect in different ways but Christ connects in all ways and I am truly grateful for that.

OOOOOOOOOh, Dear, dear Porritt Family!! How HAPPY I was to get your email and find out about your blog. Way too much fun (kammi is jazzed, too, but I'll let her do her own gabbing w/you).

Sounds like you are doing well (#7due when??), how are the rest of the children doing? and Tom's job? And you closer to your fam? and I know you probably don't have mega time to answer all these questions, so, whenever!

Love and miss you!
