Before I started my run, I asked for safety over my children because Abe was out of town. I also asked for God's blessings on my run.
Oh my goodness it felt so good to be free in the outdoors for just a moment without any other voices demanding my attention. I ran on the sidewalk which bordered the ocean. I was shocked at what I saw… at least 8 dolphins dipped in and out of the waters!! I had never seen such a thing in the wild before. I stopped just for a moment to watch them. I looked around to tell somebody, but nobody else was nearby. Instead I thanked God for truly blessing my run. I felt God speak to my heart that this was a good thing… spending a short time alone to strengthen my spirit. I arrived home strengthened and ready for conference.
In preparation for conference, this is how I found Jackson… I asked him what he was doing. All he said was, "King Benjamin Mom." (From Mosiah 4:6-8)
