I got to attend a very LOVELY baby shower for Ashley Reynolds.
The food was more like a banquet! Everything was just SO NICE.
The day got even better when these 2 sweethearts arrived.
After a Mexican dinner with the girls, we walked over to Savemart.
She turned to me and said, "Oh I just saw Mrs. S walking by. She wanted to be principal of our school but Mr. B got the job instead."
I asked, "HOW do you know all that?'
She paused and then said, "Grandma Honey...technically I go to that school."
(technically?? She cracks me up.)
Yesterday we very much enjoyed watching my son Logan give a talk in his ward about humility and patience. He talked about his childhood and how summer vacation use to seem so long...and then once school started again it seemed like forever until the next summer would come again. I think every child feels that way. He explained how he thinks that is how God begins teaching us patience when we are young, that we will need when we are older. Never thought of it that way, but he may be right.
Then after church we went to dinner at Amy and Logan's house. That is always a treat for us.
I couldn't understand why the twins were waiting patiently for their food
until I learned their Dad had given them samples of the punch before dinner.
The hard part about yesterday was only having 2 hours of sleep the night before. I just could not turn off my mind. Two hours is not enough for me. I felt like my body was being tortured, and even left church TWICE to go home and take short naps. And even though I only slept from 1am to 3am, I was late to the first meeting at 7:30! Only 2 minutes late, but I had 4 1/2 hours to get ready, so I really don't know how that happened.
And then the really hard part about yesterday was learning about the Bishop in Visalia (less than an hour from us) who was shot and killed during church. I keep thinking about his wife and 6 young sons. My heart hurts for that family, and they will be in our prayers for a long time. Once again, I am incredibly amazed that the choices of one, can affect so many. Forever. What peace to know this life is not the end.
