Alex's Lesson

Today Alex had his first real experience with the Holy Ghost. His cousin had lost her $3.00 and had looked all over the cabin for it. She was really upset about losing it and was in tears. She asked Alex if he knew where it was, and Alex said "No" But then a few minutes later I found him sitting in the car crying. He said to me " I can't take it anymore!"......... "I found her money, but didn't know who's it was, I put it in my pants pocket and now they are packed and I can't get the money out!" we talked about what he was feeling, why he was feeling that way, why he hadn't told her the truth, and what he should do about it. He was still crying after we borrowed $3.00 from his Daddy to give back to Hailey. It was so touching to watch him give the money back to her, tell her what happened, what he was feeling, and apologize! I have never been prouder of him then I was this morning! It's hard to make things right when you know that you have done something wrong. I LOVE YOU ALEX!
