Building a Thanksgiving Map

This morning I was asked to help with singing time in Primary at church. I wasn't really sure I knew what I was going to do.

I've been pondering the concept of parental love of a "goodly" parent for the last couple of months. I am learning more and more from day to day that the love of a parent for a child is the most profound because it lasts more than a life time. It lasts for an eternity.
