(Shamelessly stealing her description of the article)
The article, which you really should read even though I know you probably won't, is about how we all have these specific sacred places that are related to a life-changing memory.
She shared some of her own personal sacred places, and I was so moved, I thought I would share some of mine.
- The huge tree in my backyard when I was young that had a perfectly shaped branch for sitting and thinking up near the top.
- My upstairs childhood bedroom where I spent a night on my knees, talking with my Maker.
- A little house in Atikokan, Ontario where I struggled to figure out how to get some of the most bitter members of the LDS church I'd ever met to cooperate. This was also the house where I felt like the words of my prayers were not only heard but listened to with perfect attention.
- The picnic table where I first told my future wife I loved her.
- The hospital room where I saw my baby for the first time.
