The Computer, Friends and Church
My computer has been in the shop for the last 4 days-I can't believe how much I am dependant on my computer and how much $$$ they cost to fix when they die.
Ella had a really fun play date last week with her friend, Julia...they posed at will when I brought out the camera. These girls are definitely NOT camera shy and I couldn't resist posting some of the pictures =).
Today is Sunday, the day we worship. Church was amazing today...it was our Stake Conference-the twice a year meeting that all the wards in our Stake meet together to be instructed by our leaders. When I walked into the meeting, I was overwhelmed by the youth choir that was singing. They sounded like angels and I was immediately humbled by the Spirit. My husband was ask to give the opening invocation and I was humbled even more when he asked, in he middle of his prayer, for comfort to be given to those that were suffering in the aftermath of the China earthquakes. I appreciated him so much for his continued prayers on behalf of the people of China. Our leaders talked about remaining steadfast in this difficult and trying world, being faithful and fortifying our homes against the temptations of Satan. I always love to come home from church feeling uplifted and with a renewed sense of duty to be a righteous mother and wife.
We had the privilege of watching Madison graduate from Seminary tonight-a beautiful meeting. Madison, along with two other Seminary graduates, was asked to speak at the commencement. As a mom, I was in awe of this daughter that I raised, just listening to her testify about the things she knows are true and right, brought huge tears to my eyes. Now, we look forward to Graduation this Thursday. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that fact that my first born is graduating...I think I might be the only parent that is going to stand up at Graduation and shout "I OBJECT." I personally think she needs to go back the ninth grade and repeat High School because she grew up way to fast! Family is going to start trickling in on Tuesday so our week should be busy, but fun.
I have been told that my blog is getting closer to being done...I am so excited for the finished product. Enjoy the Ella and Julia cuteness.
