I had this surreal moment in the House of Lords--it was standing room only in the room, but there were two extra seats at the round table (where the speakers were sitting alongside other dignitaries). The chair mentioned that there were two seats available and that someone should take the seat. My friends (who were standing with me) said that I should take it, but I hesitated. Finally, one of my friends said, "If you go, I'll go." So we went to sit at the front.
I just sat there--sitting with world leaders in government, religion, and law--and I thought for a moment: "Is this really reality? This can't be my life." But there you go. For a moment, that was my life. And it was such a surreal moment.

Anyway, it was a very busy two days, but also a very full two days. It was my first time ever meeting an LDS apostle, so it was also a special experience for me. I know that they are not perfect, but I really do believe that these men are called of God to represent the Savior and to do His work on the earth today.
