O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

A Sweet Moment- Sister Care

Butterfly was sick yesterday. Many times, when Pumpkin Pie has been sick, Butterfly has sat by her and nursed her, read her stories, fetched her water, or just kept her company. Yesterday, when I was not available, Pumpkin Pie jumped in and returned the favor, taking care of her big sister. Today, Butterfly was feeling a little better, but still was lying on the couch unable to go to church. When Pumpkin Pie came down dressed in a dress and sweater and needed her sash tied, Butterfly called her over and sat up. She explained that the dress and sweater used to be hers and she knew how to fix it so it looked best. She then began to fuss over Pumpkin Pie, fixing her collar, straightening the shoulders, tying the sash, and making her sister presentable. It was the sweetest thing to watch her still serving Pumpkin Pie even though she felt rotten and was on the couch. I am grateful I got to watch the tender moment between sisters who love each other and take care of one another. My only regret was that a camera was not handy!
