Mi Michellita

Michelle, my sweet girl, has such a tender heart. Just two quick stories to share about her.

Friday, she went to a birthday party for a sweet friend. She was so excited all week. Anyway, when I was picking her up, her friend's mom told me that when they were coming outside to play games, the kids all rushed out. But her friend's little brother was trying to put his shoes on. Michelle stopped to help. That's the type of kid she is. Her teachers have also commented on what a good friend she is to others.

About a week and a half ago, when we were reading in the Book of Mormon stories book, we read about Abinadi. She asked a lot of questions as I was reading. When it came to the part about Abinadi being put to death by fire, she began to sob. Not just a tear or two, she was really crying. It really upset her that a prophet was killed, especially in such a mean way. She often cries or gets emotional when she talks about the crucifixion of the Savior. She has such a tender heart.
