Lydia came up to me today and I wish I could have recorded our conversation. She never ceases to amaze me.

L- Mom, Dad was teaching me the other day about feeling the Holy Ghost. He said that when we do something kind for someone we can feel the Holy Ghost.

Me- That’s true.

L- Well, today at school I think I felt the Holy Ghost.

Me- Cool. What happened?

L- Well, we were supposed to clean our desks out but mine wasn’t messy because I am so organized (obviously she does not lack self-confidence). But Tyler’s was really messy so I helped him clean his desk. It took a long time and we were still cleaning and organizing his desk when everyone else was playing for recess. But I wanted to help him and I think I felt the Holy Ghost. I really have no idea what that feels like, but I think I felt it.

Me- I’m sure you did. How did you feel?

L- I just felt good and happy.

Me- That’s exactly how it feels. I’m so proud of you for helping your friend and recognizing that you felt the Holy Ghost.

And then I scooped her up in my arms, breathed her in, and held onto her for as long as she’d let me.
