I got to help put on a wedding for a less active member in our ward. I decorated the arch around the cake. For what I was given last second I was pretty impressed with how it turned out. Also, I put together the cheese and biscuit platters.... I loved them. My creativity was on high and I was so happy. I had an outlet for it all!! The relief society president, Sue Wales, was really happy. Thankfully, it was just a small wedding, but it was still stressful. It's nice to know I can help out in this ward and that maybe I've made a difference.
Also, on Thursday, we got to help a family paint their living room and I got to cut in. It reminded me of being home. Dad, let me tell you, I haven't lost my touch! Brother Keir made a comment here and there that my husband is going to feel emasculated by how much I can do haha. It was a fun day. And a fun week. We have found some cool new people. I'm interested to see how this week goes.
I'm really grateful for my family and how close we are. I have seen and heard about other families and it really makes me appreciate what I have :) So, remember, you guys are great!!
Love you all!!
