I hope you are all having a FAB day! Karlee went home today. Boo hoo! I loved having a friend here for the week. She is like family to me and it was fun to have a "sister" so close by. Wish I lived closer to all of my family and close friends. On another note my 6 year old started his first day of piano. He has been counting down this day for about a year now. He loves music, loves to sing, and can already play many songs on the piano. When I picked him up today his teacher said that he had a natural talent and she was going to run with it! LOL! She has taught all of my other 4 children and they are all very talented but Brayden eats, sleeps, and breaths music. I cannot wait to see him grow in the piano. He is actually excited to learn and couldn't wait to come home and practice.
Tonight I went to a Relief Society Cooking Class which is held monthly. This is only the 2nd time I have been able to make it in a year! I loved it and will try to go every month. We had a pizza night and made about 5 different types of pizzas and they were ALL super yummy. One was even Gluten-Free and made with a cauliflower crust! So unique but I actually loved it. Of course, for dessert, we had the traditional fruit pizza.
So thankful for Sister Tew in my ward who opens up her beautiful home every month and takes the time to prepare, cook, and clean up for everyone.
I would like to start today by sharing a song by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Today we are reading chapters 56 and 57 of Alma. Still going through the wars with the Lamanites and Nephites. Great stories in there. Today I will share some of my favorite scriptures which still refer to the 2000 Stripling Warriors.
I love this talk given by Elder Holland. I needed these words this week. Being a mom is hard work and I sometimes feel like I don't measure up. I often go to bed in tears wondering how I am doing. What a great message of hope.
I want you all to know how thankful I am to be a mother and also to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I don't know how I could do it without His help. I am so far from perfect but I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I can do all things.
