I was thinking about this very thing on Sunday during Sacrament Meeting. There is a prime bench in our chapel that one family uses every week. It is prime because it is the last bench in the side row and affords easy access to the door when their kids act up and need to be taken out.

This week, the usual family was late and the bench stayed open for them, even as the overflow filled back into the gym. I was looking at the bench, thinking what a nice ward I have, since no one tried to take that bench. Not every ward is as lucky, I guess.
