We live in Southeast Texas and haven’t had rain pretty much all year. We are in a major drought and have had to conserve water. However, we aren’t as bad as some parts of Texas. Have you heard about all the crazy wild fires? Not fun!
We actually got rain today. It only rained about 30-45 minutes, but I’ll take it! While it was raining, I could hear something hitting the roof. Lots of somethings actually. I went outside to see what it was and it was hail. Craziness!
This weekend our church had conference and it was amazing. Elder Holland came and spoke to us and switched out our Stake Presidency.
Our family had the opportunity to feed Elder Holland. He was so polite and funny. He shook our hands and told my mom that he would like to fly in every weekend for her to fee him! He also told Mom that she was his very own Betty Crocker or something like that. Before my dad could introduce Kari, Elder Holland told her she looked just like my mom.
He also talked to Riglee and said that she was the pretty little girl that he saw being passed around Saturday night at conference. Haha — She started out sitting with Adam’s Parents and then was ready for her bottle so I had to go get her from them…
It was a pretty amazing experience and I’m glad I suffered through my back pain to attend and help mom feed him and the Stake Presidency. I am sad that I missed out on Sunday feeding them lunch. I came home and My parents, sister and sister in law got to sit at the table with Elder Holland and visit with him while he ate his lunch before he headed to the airport. What a neat experience that would have been.
Adam wrote a sonnet for me for our 3rd Anniversary and posted it on facebook – but I wanted to put it on here so that I wouldn’t lose it.
Life’s cruel waves have battered much Upon the heart of this poor wretch Unsure of life and love and such I wandered long a soul to fetch Then it happened in a summer’s day I found new life in your small glance A fleeting smile, so short to stay Had stoked the fires of new romance A burning blaze that no words convey A whirlwind dance preceded then To sweep us up and intertwine Two hearts as one to beat and spin Til my feet grow weary and eyes decline Yet tonight I rest in heaven’s view Because tonight i rest with you
Below the post, I posted three videos that I absolutely love and wanted to share with whoever reads my blog. It’s all about family and parents spending time with their children. To often we get busy and forget that we need to take time to goof off and imagine with our children. They value their time with us and it’s important that we give it to them.
