Marguerite‘s mother spoke in church recently, detailing what her daughter had gone through, thanking God and every member of the congregation for their help, their love, and their prayers. For all the encouragement and hope that always seemed to come in at the moments it was most needed.  It was her daughter’s birthday, and her mother wanted to celebrate her good health out loud with us.

As she spoke, Marguerite was everybody’s daughter. She was already everybody’s friend.

How appropriate to celebrate the birthday at church with friends who care and prayed for a return of Marguerite’s good health!

Wonderful good news! Wasn’t the Marguerite’s shawl knit around this time last year? My what difference a year makes. 🙂

Yes, it was. Right after last year’s Stitches East trip.

One of the very best things about the LDS religion is the way the members share their love and support. I wish everyone lived the values they espouse as well.
