Singing Sisters

My Relief Society is great. GREAT!!

Our music moment is always a song from the Children's Song Book, and today I decided it is my favorite part of the day. There is something about women singing these simple songs together than makes my soul leap with joy. We sing proud, and yet you can feel the love and kindness drift through the room. It is soothing and comforting, angelic and sweet, and motherly in every sense of the word.

Today as we sang prophetic truths in the humblest form, I began to think about all the good these women will accomplish in their lives. The primary lessons taught. The long drives to girls camp. The babies rocked and soothed. The cub scout meetings endured. The meals prepared. The shirts soiled from tears. And intimate relationships each woman has with her beloved child.

They are women of God. They are mothers. They are angels.

I walk past the duck pond at least 4 times a week. I LOVE IT! They "quack" me up every time. Seriously. I think they are the most pleasant type of bird: they waddle around and laugh all day. Can it get any better than that?

Scripture Posters

I have found a new love!


Whoever this person is, they are AWESOME!

They do artistic versions of scriptures, church material, and fun quotes.

I found them while working on an Interior Design Project, and I must have them. I took pictures of my computer screen for two of them.

Joshua 1:9 This one is best in this teal color

Joshua 23:15 This one is better in white with colored text (not this version)

And the last one is 2 Nephi 31:20. ( I like the dark teal one)

I must have them.
Hint Hint.

Sunday night

Ward Prayer is over.

Ashlee has a really bad muscle spasm in her shoulder

OK! I fix

She sprawls down on the floor, and I straddle her backside. Not weird, we do it all the time for massages. I fix.

I fix. I fix. I fix. I fix.

Gosh, I could fix a lot better if my shoulders were free. I'll hike up my skirt and unbutton my dress to my waist.

Ok, kinda exposed, but no one here cares. I still have an undershirt on and my dress is still totally on except for being unbuttoned.

knock knock knock...

COME IN!!!!!!!!
says Ashlee

WHAT! WAIT! NNNNOOOOOOOoooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

I'm too late.

Trevor strides in the door, I'm straddling Ashlee, my skirt is much higher than modest, and my blouse is totally flapping open!!!

I'm thrashing to wrap myself up and get thrown off Ashlee's back (who is laughing while trying to apologize).

Trevor totally ignores the warning, and just stands there laughing at me. I'm burying my face in the floor and desperately trying to cover myself quickly.
