March 14, 2016

This week was ridiculously long. Out of the 16 appointments we had this week, 12 of them cancelled, so that was great. Even the stuff that never cancels on us got cancelled! Half of our dinner appointments even cancelled. It was just kind of funny. Hopefully we'll have like a billion appointments this next week to make up for all the cancelled ones.

This week it got up to 80 degrees, so that's pretty great. Wednesday night at about 9 pm, our district leader texted and asked me to do a training in district meeting on Thursday. I'm pretty sure that's not even the shortest notice I've gotten for a training, so it's fine.
We had a special sister meeting this week in Grand Island! It was awesome. It was basically like the general women's broadcast, where they just tell you what a great job you're doing, and make sure you remember you're a daughter of God and He loves you and don't be so hard on yourself or compare yourself to others and all that jazz. 

Quote of the week! It's a cute little poem from the Friend.
There once was an oyster
Whose story I’ll tell,
Who found that some sand
Had worked under his shell.
Just one little grain
But it gave him a pain,
For oysters have feelings
That are very plain.
Now did he berate
This working of fate,
That left him in such a
Deplorable state?
Did he curse the government,
Call for an election,
And say that the sea
Should have some protection?
No! He said to himself
As he sat on the shelf,
“Since I cannot remove it,
I think I’ll improve it.”
Well, years passed by,
As years always do,
Till he came to his destiny,
Oyster stew!
But the small grain of sand
That bothered him so
Was a beautiful pearl
All richly aglow.
Now this tale has a moral,
For isn’t it grand,
What an oyster can do
With a small grain of sand?
And what couldn’t we do
If we’d only begin
With all of the things
That get under our skin?

Wait! The new Easter video just came out yesterday! I totally forgot about that, sorry, I'm super tired today. But here's a link for it! Go share it with all your friends! Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and whatever other social media you have nowadays!
And here's a virtual hallelujah choir! I don't actually know what that is, because I can't watch it with sound at the library, but everyone keeps talking about how good it is.
Happy Pie Day!
(This was the only kind of pie picture on, which is my only resource.)
