Hoooody who.....

Things are going pretty well. I have my good days and my bads days. This sunday, unfortunately I had a bit of a break down at church. Sundays have been my hardest days for quite some time. I think of possibilities and blessings I have been promised as long as Im faithful and continue to live my life in righteousness. I had sharing time on sunday for the first time. I had it all planned out and the kids were involved and I thought this is going to be great. Well I crashed and burned. At least in my mind. Of all the sundays the kids were all behaving very well and very quiet. My mind went blank and I forgot all the activities I was going to do. Yeah so I felt like it was a disaster. Well anyway I ended up crying AFTER church and I was almost out of the door and on my way home but for some reason my Visiting Teacher was everywhere and kept asking how I was doing. Finally my disobedient tears leaked out of my eyes. I was mortified. It was so silly because It wasn't one particular thing that got to me, and I thought All the stresses I had dealt with and taken care of a week or so earlier. Who knows what happened. But I got a blessing and things got better. I got the same answers in my blessing as the answers I have reaceived before. I just need an extra boost another reminder of what I was doing and why. Im getting to know more of the ward which is great. Half of the ward has been there forever and the other half is new like us hahaha, it's funny, but then again a high percentage are military families so it's the norm for this area.

I have organized my closet, which I LOVE. I have shoe racks and I finally got a tie coat hanger thingy that I have all of willies ties on, my belts and my scarves. It saves so much space. I've been looking for different types of baskets but Im not having much luck. In the stores baskets cost so much and if its not expensive its cheapy where it looks like it would fall apart as soon as its touched.
Oh and I bought four 16x20 prints from the distribultion center. One is of nukualofa temple, sydney australia temple, quorum of the twelve and the first presidency. I got the nukualofa temple pic because thats where dad was sealed to pili and ofa and the sydney temple because thats where my siblings and parents were sealed. Thats our family history with temple sealings, although I should get the jordan river and mt timpanogos temple for when my two wonderful sisters were sealed to my awesome brother in laws.

I took some pics of the kids and random ness which is more uplifting and fun. Oh and I was really thinking of trying to go to Canada for christmas but it just doesnt look like that is possible. Tickets are so expensive. But yeah so here are my recentish pics.

I love those pictures! So sorry your sharing time was sucky for you. I think they are sucky and frustrating in general. The week I had mine I had to give a talk in Sacrament meeting and teach my class too, they were all train wrecks but I just had my eye on the getting home and eating chocolate (haha that actually helped me a lot but made me indifferent). That reminds me a friend of mine in the ward told me about when she had sharing time. She said it was the day after her grandma died and she went to do sharing time and all the kids starting talking about random crap not having to even do with church so she got really frustrated and was trying to keep a smile on her face but as soon as it was over she ran out of there and tried to go home and her visiting teacher stopped her too and she started crying and felt like an idiot and just wanted to be left alone but everyone kept coming up to her. My sharing time sucked but I guess I didn't care. I got the lesson out and its their problem if they didn't listen (thats how I felt during it anyway).

Side note I LOVE organized closets. Mine needs to be re organized again. You should take pictures of your shoes!

Wonderful photos. It's good to cry once in a while.
Nowdays I don't remember anything. I have to ask people repeatedly what their name is. Having children give you brainlacking a little bit at a time. Haha.
Enjoy everything you have. Not to worry too much about things that don't go too well.

Thanks guys. so sweet. Yeah I spoke with the primary president later that night because my VT called her and told her I had a bad day. It was good to talk to her because she told me that it is hard to do sharing time and she was grateful that I had done it (she wasnt there due to sickness) It reminded me of a meeting we had earlier that week concerning teaching the primary children and loving them even when we have hard moments with the kids. She told us she is so grateful for all who serve in primary because believe it or not lots of people say they will do any but primary. I know shes very grateful because she treats us all so well with her smiles and encouraging words.

Oh and I love having a calling regardless of where it is in the church. We all must serve in whatever capacity we can. Having my calling makes it harder for me to make excuses not to go to church :). I love feeling useful and developing and maintaining talents.
