I was kind of in an odd mood today; not quite sure why. (Perhaps it was the crazy cold and snowy weather?? Have I mentioned I'm ready for spring??) We had a ward activity tonight for Family Home Evening that I was kind of unsure about attending, but am so glad that I did! Several of the girls in my ward teach elementary school and some of them teach children with disabilities. A carnival was organized for the families of these sweet disabled kids to attend and each of the Family Home Evening groups put together a booth for the carnival. Our group put together a cake walk and it was a total hit! The kids loved running around the circle dancing to the music and winning the cupcakes when their number was called.
It was so fun to see the kids' eyes light up when they came into the gym and saw what had been put together for them. It was a sweet reminder that among all the craziness in the world, there is still so much good. These little kids had so much love to give and gave it freely...something I need to be better at.
What a sweet experience.
