Love One Another

"Love is the only force that can erase the differences between people." Gordon B. Hinckley

On a car ride today, the boys and I passed a school bus. Jackson, with an unusual amount of tenderness in his voice, informed us that it was a bus for special kids. Thus began our conversation.

What ensued was only about 3 more minutes of dialogue among the 4 of us, but memorable and sweet, nonetheless. I talked with the kids about special kids... And about all kids. We talked together about how God loves all His children. We talked about how no one is perfect. We talked about what makes us all different, AND wonderful, all at the same time. I love those teaching moments. I know that God impresses upon my mind and my heart the right things to say, as a mother. I feel so blessed to know that the Holy Ghost is a part of my life, and the lives of my sweet little boys.

Please take a couple minutes to watch this lovely little video titled, "Love One Another."

As I have loved you, Love one another.
This new commandment, Love one another.
By this shall men know ye are my disciples -
If ye have love, one to another.
