Just a trip to Walmart

In testimony meeting on Sunday, someone was saying how grateful they are for the knowledge that everyone is a child of God. Knowing this makes it easier to love those around us, even those people we hate, or the ones that cut us off in traffic. I don't know why, but that little statement was what I remembered most from sacrament meeting. Today, just barely in fact, I was driving to Walmart and got cut off 7 times. NO JOKE! The first time wasn't too bad, and after remembering what I heard in sacrament meeting it actually kind of made me giggle. By the 6th cut-off I was happy that I remembered the simple truth given over the pulpit on Sunday, because I was getting frustrated. At one point I wanted to yell, but because of what I was thinking about it was hard to. I was able to teach a good lesson to my son and I felt less stressed and frustrated, even if it was a simple trip to Walmart. I too am grateful for the knowledge that everyone is loved by our Heavenly Father, that we are brothers and sisters, and that we are all children of God.

Was that supposed to be comedic or spiritually inspiring? I'm usually in the comedic mind frame whenever I read your and Benji's blogs.
