Count Your Many Blessings...

...Name them one by one: Stephen, Rachel, Jake, Hannah, Chip, Simon, Lauren, and Calvin Hixon. You are my blessings.

After reading my post yesterday, the entire Hixon family came over last night for Family Home Evening. After a lesson from my roommate, they swept our porch and driveway, and then Stephen proceeded to teach his boys how to fix brakes. They took my car away, and a couple of hours later, I got my car back with new brakes. And the car was sparkling clean as well - they washed it! Couldn't tell ya the last time my car got a shower. Heaven.

This act of service kept me up all night long. I am very humbled and grateful for people like the Hixons who see a need and act upon it. I am very weepy today (service + no sleep + painful dentist appointment makes Tara an emotional girl) and am still marveling at last night's events.

To the Hixon family, THANK YOU. I don't deserve your generosity but am so grateful for what you did for me. I love you guys!

We just love you Tara. We have to do stuff like this so you will never move away from our ward. It's a totally selfish endeavor! And it was so much fun!

How very nice of your friends to come over and help out with your car! Talk about the epitome of service! I hope the dental work is going okay, that does not sound fun. I'm not a fan of going to the dentist just to get a cleaning much less more substantial work. But I guess I would rather do that than have my teeth fall out! :) Good luck with it all.
