Sometimes all it takes is a kind word, a sincere compliment or a smile from a baby to turn my day around.

A few days ago as I was walking home from school with my kids I saw something that made me very happy. My neighbor’s tree was budding. Not only budding, but was already beginning to flower. My mind instantaneously started singing the words to a popular primary song we sing in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Popcorn Popping. Here are the words:

I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.

Spring has brought me such a nice surprise
Popcorn popping right before my eyes.

I can take an armful and make a treat.
A popcorn ball that would smell so sweet.

I wasn’t really so, but it seemed to me!
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.

Spring is coming! Today I found some things online that had the same effect on me as my neighbor’s budding tree. They are videos about four different Mormon Women who are sharing with the world how the Gospel of Jesus Christ impacts their lives.

This first video is about Shannon, a Mormon woman with cerebral palsy, who served a mission for our faith in New York. Thanks to Seth Adam Smith for this video.

Next is a video featured at about a mormon mommy blogger named Shawni who loves photography.

And here is Rochelle, an LDS mother in Texas, who is raising four beautiful children, two of whom have special needs.

And finally here is a video about Daisy, a resource manager, and convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I did! Now you don’t have to wait for spring to come to your town to see something that warms your heart.
