A Little Inspiration

Susan Boyle is a British sensation that I first heard about on "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," my personal favorite NPR program.  I didn't think about it again until Nora pinned me down and made me watch the video.  It is absolutely beautiful.  I literally cried, and while I know that most people have seen it (those who have, feel free to ignore this), I was pretty sure my mom probably hadn't.  And she needs to!  So, Mom (and anyone else who hasn't seen it), here is the link.  

Susan Boyle

And on Thursday night, I had a meeting for church where we talked about available media that we can use to help people learn about our church.  It turns out that the church has started posting videos on You Tube, and you can find them by typing in "Mormon Messages."  Here's one that we watched on Thursday night (that also made me cry).  Maybe it was just because I hadn't heard his voice in a long time, but it was very touching to me.

And finally, this face always inspires me.

This is an older picture, but I love it and hadn't posted it before.
