Tonight we hosted the Parleys First Ward Priesthood Preview at our home. During the tender testimony of Susan Pynes, Ella walked out of the living room and down the hall. Frustrated that she would leave at all - let alone while someone was sharing heart-felt comments - I was prepared to give her "the eye" when she returned. She came back swiftly and prior to returning to her seat, handed a box of tissues to Susan.
This kind act, which none of the others had thought of performing, melted my heart, and turned my eyes to tears of gratitude rather than scolding looks. I am blessed to mother such a caring child.
