THIS IS MY JOY

AND MY GREAT REJOICING

A Remarkable Connection

Sometimes in the mornings I go for a walk with my mom. Our conversations are filled with life, family, scriptures ––sacred things.

I learn from her wisdom.  I enjoy her company.  Those walks have become one of the holy patterns of my life.

When I heard Sister Stevens talking about her mom during the Women's Meeting on Saturday night, I couldn't help but think about mine.

One line in particular stood out to me.

"She had a remarkable connection to heaven."

What a wonderful and beautiful compliment.

And it is so true of my mom.

Oh, you would just love her if you met her.  What you would love most is her heart.

I've been thinking about that quote all day today.  On Saturday night my bench was filled with women I admire.  My daughters, my good friend Nish, my mom, my sister-in-law Andrea, and her daughter Ella.

I glanced around and realized that definition fit every single one of them.

Each has a remarkable connection to heaven, and my life is better because of that.

Blessed.

By their wisdom.  By their company. Simply by rubbing shoulders with them on a daily basis.

Do you know someone who has a remarkable connection to heaven?  Have you ever told them?  Today would be a good day.
