Young Women's

I don't know if I ever told anyone, but I have been the Young Women's 2nd Counseler for a couple of months.  It has been a great experience working with the younger beehives, they are wonderful and excited about everything.  Some of the upcoming activities we are doing are

Fort Night
Sacrament Bread Night
Adopt a Grandma
Scripture Bags
Modesty "what does your wrapper say about you?"
Parable of the Popcorn "A night to fulfill our potential"

I would love additional ideas if anyone has them

This week we played Scripture Basketball, all the girls had a ton of fun and are excited for the things that are coming up!

As for me so far so good, my treatments seem to be working, my #'s have come down significantly, the only bummer is my white count is up indicating I have an infection, which could head south quickly, nothing if evident right now which is concerning, but they are going to retreat a sinus infection that I had 3 wks ago with the hope that it is the problem.  Cross my fingers and hope to feel better!

I Got Laied Last Night

Happy New Year everyone.  Just wanted to check in and tell everyone about my fun happy birthday yesterday.  I had several visits from dear friends to wish me a happy birthday.  My dear friend at church told me happy birthday every time I walked past her or her girls, it really made me feel super special.  One of my other friends dropped off a lovely book for me (Christmas with the Prophets).  I am super excited to read it, I was fascinated by President Monson's tradition of reading books prior to Christmas.  I then had a lovely visit with my dear friend Laurel, who has been in Hawaii for 2 weeks and brought me home a beautiful coconut lai.  She was very tan and rested and it sounds like she has had a lovely time. 

As for good news, I am finally feeling better then I have physically for almost 2 years.  I think we have finally found a medication that is going to help me.  It does require 3 to 4 hours of time every 4 to 6 weeks, but other then that I am super happy and thrilled.  Today is the best I have felt so far.  I felt so good that I spent several hours cleaning and reorganizing books and rooms today.  I have not been able to do that for at least 2 years. 

Life is looking up, I am looking up, I am thrilled!
