They are everywhere if you make yourself aware of them. I had one such tender mercy yesterday. I was at the Bloomington Wal-Mart looking for a skirt to go to the temple since I'd forgotten mine. I just needed something quick to go when I got a phone call from my mom. She told me the new St. George airport will be opening on January 12--the seven year mark of dad's fatal airplane incident. It was also seven years ago that Sue and I were in the Cedar Wal-Mart when we received the call that Dad's plane was down. As I heard mom telling me of the grand opening news, I couldn't help but cry tears of joy and gratitude for that tender mercy. He loved flying the Brasilia aircraft and he loved Lake Powell. Two of his favorites pictures below!
P.S. Wal-Mart no longer carries skirts or dresses, in case you're wondering about that!
