On the bright side

During a recent Home, Family, and Personal Enrichment meeting all our sisters were working on humanitarian aid projects. The evening was getting late and the women were working a little faster to finish their projects before the closing prayer. Some were cutting out and hemming receiving blankets for new-born babies. Many were sanding wooden blocks and a few were putting the blocks into bags for the educational toys that were soon to be delivered to the LDS Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City. While sanding a block, one sister spontaneously broke into the first line of the hymn, "Have I Done Any Good in the World Today?" Another sister joined in on the second line and before they reached the third line, every sister in the room had joined them. The projects were quickly completed and I had the feeling that somehow the smiles on everyone's faces were flowing into the bags and blankets.
