I was going to put this part of yesterday into my previous post, but I decided that this event deserved its own post. :) Yesterday, after stake conference, I had the chance to go to my uncle's house for a Myers family dinner. The fact that it was my stake conference was actually a huge blessing in that regard. I'd missed out on the past couple of Myers family gatherings because they always took place in the early evening, and since I usually have church late, I wasn't able to get away to participate. But since we got out an hour and a half earlier than usual yesterday (3:00 instead of 4:30!), I was able to make it this time around. Not only that, but my aunt who lives in Seattle has been in town, and so I was able to see her as well! What are the odds that my family, including at least one who isn't normally there, would get together on the one Sunday when I was most able to be there myself? Not super high. Coincidence? I don't think so. I'm grateful that the Lord saw fit to allow things to work out there as well as making the stake choir so incredible. Not only did I get to participate in an amazing stake conference, but then I got to spend time with my wonderful family. What an amazing day!
