In the beautiful setting of Charleston, Utah, a backdrop to many of life’s precious moments, my family recently gathered to celebrate my daughter Lindie’s wedding, a stone’s throw from the awe-inspiring Mount Timpanogos.
As many of you know, alongside family events, we’ve been engrossed in the worthwhile endeavor of remodeling our association’s offices. It was during this time, working hand in hand with a committed group of volunteers, that I stumbled upon a story of dedication that warmed my heart.
One of our members, currently vacationing in Star Valley, Idaho, took time out of her vacation to drive down for Lindie’s reception and then return, demonstrating a remarkable commitment to nurturing relationships and being present in important moments.
This story, to me, stands as a shining example of the depth of relationships that we foster in our community. It is a reminder to all of us to not underestimate the joy and fulfillment that comes from prioritizing relationships, and being there for one another, even amidst personal commitments.
I look forward to personally expressing my gratitude to this individual, once I obtain her consent to share her kindness more broadly. Meanwhile, I hope her story serves as a beautiful reminder for each one of us. It tells us that with a little effort and goodwill, we can prioritize joy and happiness, fostering a community based on mutual respect and unwavering support.
Let us take inspiration from this act of kindness and remember to foster relationships that are grounded in love, support, and mutual respect. Because at the end of the day, it is the relationships we build and maintain that truly enrich our lives, bringing joy and a deeper sense of community to all we do.
