Reverence Begins with Me...


Last Sunday as I was sitting listening to the sacrament speaker and not understanding a word I started to daydream. {Don't tell my little ones} As I was staring up into space I saw the weirdest thing, BRIGHT red, blue and green feathers were floating high in the air. Instantly I recognized them, I brought them to entertain my daughter. They are her fairies. I look over with horror on my face to see Dallin picking the feathers apart and blowing them up to catch the current of the "6" fans circulating the air. {Remember we don't have air conditioning} My jaw dropped! Paige, yes I could see her doing this. Troy, maybe, but Dallin? What is going on here!?!?!? I prayed that the distracting feathers would descend quickly. But no, as soon as they got to head height, the fans would pull them up again. I'm sitting there asking myself, "Why did I insist that we sit in front?" and "Please don't let anyone else notice the plethora of feathers making the rounds!" Oh the joys of motherhood. Let's just say I didn't daydream the rest of the meeting.
