Small and Simple Things

Several years ago, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law suffered a miscarriage about halfway through the pregnancy. We took dinner to their family a time or two. I didn't realize what that might have meant to them, my sister-in-law especially, until I had a miscarriage myself a few years later. When I had other people acknowledge my own trial, it helped lift me up above my pain and grief.

When we went to the bishops' storehouse to help, I felt really happy.

We went over to Sister C.'s house and cleaned up her yard. It made me feel really good inside.

Helping a teacher with a student who has a different learning disability made me feel really good and special to know that I can help others.

As a family we raked up leaves for an older neighbor unable to do it herself. I felt good and productive as I cleared her grass, sidewalk and gutter of rotting leaves. The smile of gratitude on her face showed me the happiness she had because we helped her. I loved doing this service as a family, also, because it made us feel close to one another. Playing in the leaves was also fun once our work was finished.
