Light the World Day 17: Jesus Cared for His Mother and So Can You

You can find more information here.

Our thoughts turned to Clark's mother today.  She passed away when Clark was only 3, so he really has no memory of her.  But she left behind (among other things) a recording of her personal history.  As we drove to and from the zoo (about an hour each way) we listened to her voice telling her stories.  The girls loved to hear Grandma Diane talk about her life as a young child, especially when she talked about grade school.  There were so many things they could relate to - having church friends and school friends, getting glasses, only having one sister.  Ella tells me her favorite thing was hearing her voice, which absolutely melts my heart.  What a treasure we have in these recordings, and what a perfect way to honor Clark's mother by sharing her life with her grandchildren.
