What a beautiful thought. While President Eyring was talking about a family member that was across the country, the thought came to me that it extends a lot farther than that. All the way to the other side. As a family, the six of us spent precious time praying together. What an amazing thought that as the five of us pray now, our sixth, our angel Rory, is still joining in our prayers from Heaven. #grief #griefjourney #ldsconf #churchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints esuschrist #momofboys #andaredheadedangelprincess
When we would pray together as a family at night, many times we would stay in a circle, holding hands.
Lance or I would say, “Time to pray.”
No sound of feet running our way.
Then we would say, “Someone else is going to hold mom’s hand.”
Children falling over each other.
Hands grasping at mine.
If Rory didn’t get there first, tears would fall.
Until one of the boys relented. And they pretty much always did.
Rory was a spoiled princess. And it wasn’t just by Lance and me.
During our church’s conference today one of the leaders said the above quote. “Families that prays together, ARE together, even when they’re far apart.
What a wonderful thought.
Our Rory running to the room, racing to reach my hand.
Even when she’s on the other side.
