Some People by Rachel Field

Isn’t it strange some people make
You feel so tired inside,
Your thoughts begin to shrivel up
Like leaves all brown and dried!

But when you’re with some other ones,
It’s stranger still to find
Your thoughts as thick as fireflies
All shiny in your mind!

This evening I was asked to speak in a friend’s Relief Society meeting about temple worship. It was a lovely event, with beautiful music, wonderful women and some delicious refreshments. As we all visited afterwards, I enjoyed the feeling of meeting and being with exceptional covenant women who’s hearts are turned towards others. I felt power in that room and was grateful to be there, included. As I drove home afterwards, I felt happy and enlightened by their goodness. How nice to end a long, tiring day with light in my mind and heart.
