Dear Kids,
         The conference sessions yesterday were wonderful, but there weren’t any earth-shaking announcements.   Maybe there will be some today, when the prophet speaks.  Or maybe he’ll just give his usual wonderful talk.   Maybe all the rumors were just rumors.  It’s all good.  I love conference weekend!
         Our bread and soup party last night was a blast, although we didn’t have as many people as usual.  Half of Tom’s family was sick, and Nora’s family was just getting home from their trip.  But I hope all the travelers had a good time.  I saw the picture of Paige with her broken arm (and a cute little frown on her face,) but hopefully that was the worst thing that happened to anybody.
         Our cabin joists were delivered a couple of weeks ago, (ahead of schedule!) but needless to say, nobody has hit the ground running yet.  The same restoration company has been working on Donna’s bathroom for months, and they finally finished it, which was a miracle.  At the rate it took them to do that little job, our cabin will be done in, say, five years or so.  If we’re lucky, it might be sooner.
         Easter is coming up in just two weeks, and we don’t have a plan yet, but I’ll talk to Nora today, along with the other people that will be here for lunch.  We’ll hammer out something, and I’ll write the details next week.
         I’m barely using my cane at all these days, and  I’m finally starting to feel a lot better.  My leg still hurts, but I don’t have that general sick feeling I’ve had all these months.  Thanks so much for your prayers.  I know Heavenly Father has been listening.
         Love to everybody, Mom
