I got to stand...

As usual in my house on the Saturday morning of Conference weekend we threw open the windows and turned Conference on the t.v. and all the radios and cleaned. It is a spring tradition. That way our house is all clean and we can sit back and enjoy the Sunday sessions.
But this Saturday was extra special. I knew we would be sustaining a new prophet, but it happened differently than it usually does. They announced the new apostle for the quorum of the twelve and then they asked the different groups to stand and sustain the prophet and his councilors and other church leaders. It was amazing to see our church leaders stand and raise their hands in support of their callings and then to see all the Melchizedek priesthood holders, and then the aaronic priesthood holders, and then the relief society members and then the young women, and then the church as a whole stand to sustain our new Prophet and other church leaders.
And even though I was at home, still in my pajamas I stood as a member of the relief society and then as a member of the church and raised my hand. It was a very neat experience. I hope everyone saw it. And if you did, did you stand???

I saw it. I stood. I was in my pajamas too.

I also stood. I was dressed, though. Everyone in our house was dressed. And they stood, too.

Yes I saw it. It was amazing! I dragged my fat pregnant self out to the couch, loaded up the pillows so I could put my feet up and then started watching. But it was too compelling, so yes I stood, twice. It was wonderful!
