Thank You So Much

Every time I watch this song, I feel a surge of gratitude and love for those who have written to me during my stay in Nauvoo.

In a moving scene of The Promise, one of the plays we put on here in Nauvoo, the protagonist, Julia, and several other women write letters to a group of missionaries who have traveled to England for several months to preach the gospel. Among the missionaries is Henry, Julia’s brother-in-law, who is a father figure to her, and William, one of her admirers.

As the women write, they sing the following lines:

Thank you so much for your letters and such
We’re so happy that you’ve kept in touch.
And your writing is exciting
Being so far away from Nauvoo.

And we miss you, but know this, you
Are forever in each of our prayers.
Don’t worry or fuss about Nauvoo or us […]
Sincerely yours.

Every time I watch this song from the back of the auditorium at my spot next to the sound board, I feel a surge of gratitude and love for those who have written to me during my stay in Nauvoo.

I can think of no better way than to thank you than to repeat these lines, set to beautiful music:

Thank you so much for your letters and such
We’re so happy that you’ve kept in touch.
And your writing is exciting
Being so far away from Nauvoo.

May the blessings of God be upon all of you.

The Savior indeed lives, watches over us, and understands each of our trials.

He loves you.

And I love you!
