27 Days of Thankful #8 and #9!


Sorry I missed you guys yesterday...I had a wonderful weekend and have been basking in it...and sleeping! I don't know what my deal is but I am SO SLEEPY!


Wanna hear my thankfuls? Well, I missed Sunday. So here it is. I am so thankful for the experience I had on Saturday of taking my Young Women along with the Young Men to the temple to perform baptisms on behalf of those who have died. 2 of the girls, and 2 of the guys were going to the temple for their first time. There is nowhere on earth like it. It was wonderful to experience with them. I love my calling...I love my Young Women, and I love watching them make righteous choices. I want so much for them. It was also neat that while we were there, another group came in. They were from a special needs branch in the area, and it was so neat to see them so excited to have this experience. I loved Saturday!


Today I am thankful that my husband put up with me sleeping most of the morning...and he just hung out with Monkey until I decided to drag my sleepy butt outta bed. Then he was cool in the afternoon when I said I needed another nap! Again...don't know what my deal is today, but so glad Hubby was sweet about it and let me sleep!


Head on over to Amanda's if you want more 27 Days of Thankful!


And don't think I've forgotten...tomorrow you'll get all the dish on my fabulous night of So You Think You Can Dance! So make sure to tune in!

I tried to take a nap on Sunday and my hubs was too noisy around the house! He never lets me get a good nap in!

What a beautiful picture of the temple! And you're right - there is nothing like the feelings and experiences you get when being there. I love the temple and all it stands for!!!!!

I hope you're not getting sick! Take care of yourself.

Glad you got to go to the temple with your girls. I love to watch their faces during down time and see the Spirit of what they're doing sink in.

I cannot make it through the day without a nap lately. So glad you were able to sleep in and get a nap! Lucky girl!

So is that "my" temple? :) Jordan River? Sometimes I forget that I was married there...it's a beautiful temple, but the truth is it was the only one open when we got married since it was over the holidays. haha I'm glad you have a great husband who supports you and let's you rest when you need to! Love the temple!

What a sweet hubby you have. Your body is probably still trying to recover from being sick. Take it easy.

That is so wonderful that you were able to take those young people to the temple. Such a special experience!

XOOx
