answered prayers ????

How I love my friend Stacey and her two girls. Whenever I am with her I feel closer to my Savior and my Heavenly Father. Her story reminds me of how our Heavenly Father hears our prayers and sends us exactly what we need, when the time is right, and often we do not see it coming. This past Wednesday a thought entered my mind about my friend Stacey and her upcoming move. I thought of all the unwritten papers I had vowed to do this spring break and yet the thought persisted. I said to Amber, "we need to go see Aunty Stacey". (I love having her home with me btw). She agreed and so we picked up Nellie from school and we went. This is where it gets good. In my mind I was just sacrificing a few hours of my day to my friend. Little did I know that my friend was feeling a little down because she was missing her husband, and feeling overwhelmed with the move. I do not know what her prayers were that morning. I do know however, that the same Father in Heaven that loves me and sends me help when I need it, loves my dear friend just the same, and whispered in my ear. I am so glad he did. And thank you to my beautiful girls who watched over precious Kalea and Naomi while I was building boxes. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO SERVE !!! ..... I know we received more than we gave by being there for a few hours that day.
