|The ravages of several earthquakes|
It was a mess.
|We could barely get the door open!|
Another box was full of Relief Society and Sunday School manuals. There were notes and pictures and other paraphernalia accumulated during a life spent teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was like seeing the documentation of an interesting and fulfilling life well lived (well, so far, so good!). It was like one of God's tender mercies in the midst of the stress of having to move this stuff. That was a good feeling.
I was able to toss a great deal of stuff and organize some of the rest.
Through this process, I don't know what I would have done without the help of my home teacher, Darryl and his wife Karin. It took a couple of hours of hard, filthy work, but with their help, I was able to get everything sorted out.

God bless good friends.
