Today I got lost on the Time Magazine website, for quite some time. Like really a lot of time, I didn't do much that was useful today. I came across the Top 10 Sesame Street Moments, moment #5 was the Big Bird and the grown ups discussing Mr. Hooper passing away.

After watching the clip, I was glad I am a member of the church I am. It makes conversations about death a little less harsh. Instead of saying "never", I get to say one day we get to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again. Mind you for a secular show, I thought the clip was well made, I'm just grateful my son and mine conversations are so abrupt. My son is a little obsessed with cemeteries right now, we frequently pass by two on errands, and truly believing in the Plan of Salvation makes those bi weekly conversations about cemeteries, and the purpose of them less harsh. I'm glad my husband and I were married in the temple, and my family is forever sealed to me.

  1. That made me cry...poor Big Bird. I wish missionaries would visit Sesame Street and teach them about the Plan of Salvation.
