Dear Everyone! :)
I thought to myself, I have no idea what happened this week, nothing really did happen, but then I looked in my journal and a lot happened. Like a lot a lot!
On Monday we filled up our "Spirit Jar" -- as we listen to the spirit each day, we get to put a gum ball in the jar and when it's full we go out for a treat. -- so on Tuesday we went to "Cakes and all things Yummy", well bad idea for Sister Loosle because if y'all know me, you'll understand, but I was good and only bought one cupcake. The boys would love this place, the cupcakes are HUGE! I'll have to send pictures when I get on a computer this week or next.
Soooooo....funny story.... I kind of broke my umbrella, okay not kind of, I really broke it. Smart me over here decided it'd be a good idea to just hang my umbrella from my handlebars while I was biking, well this was Wednesday. And we start biking after district meeting (where we gave to car to the elders), and we get maybe 1000 feet, maybe. And all of the sudden something flys off my bike and almost hits Sister Mouritsen behind me. I stop because I know exactly what it is. Well I take a look at what's left of my umbrella on my bike and throw every thing down and say "I quit!" But Sister Mouritsen doesn't take that as an answer. So we talk for a while and then continue onto our day. Well that night she asks me if I want to keep it, or if she can use the fabric. By this time we've tried to see if we can fix it and we can't. The umbrella part broke off of the handle. So we had a small umbrella and a pointing stick. Sister Mouritsen then proceeds to take apart the rest of the umbrella, who knows what she'll use it for. But I got some of the fabric for memories.
Something else amazing that happened this week was ... Drum roll please! ... Leighann got baptized! :) it was so amazing! She bore her testimony at the baptism and it was so beautiful. The spirit was so strong at the baptism and all her family was there to support her. I cannot wait to come back here in 10 or so years when she gets married in the temple. It will be such a glorious day.
Sacrament Meeting was so good on Sunday! Every talk was perfect! And then Sunday school and Relief Society were great as well! The talks were on Spiritually self-reliance and Spiritual instructors. Then in Relief Society (where my subject comes in) we talked about "The Moral Force of Women" by D. Todd Christofferson. We were talking about famine and masculine qualities and how men don't open doors or anything like that anymore and one of the women shared a story. She said that she was talking to a man once and they were talking about how men don't stand up to their role in the Bible and he said that she was too head strong and would let a man be the head of the household. So she said, "Give me a man who lives by the Bible and I'll give you a woman who follows him." I found that so true. I don't know if I explained that well, but that's okay! :)
Memorial Day was good, we worked at the storehouse and biked a lot to find the elect! :) my legs still hurt, but it's okay. Yesterday was also a very sad day for me, because it was my 11 month mark. Sweeties, don't waste a minute! This is going by way to fast and I can't seem to slow it down. But I love you all! And hope your having a fabulous week! :)
