Tuesday we had a busy day visiting 3 wonderful sisters.. first was Melanie, the mom of 3 adorable girls, ages 2, 4 & 5. The 2 & 5 year old are their biological children and the middle girl is adopted from a family member. They are such a cute family.. and expecting a baby brother in a few weeks.. her husband is on a team that keeps track of the movement of ice on the earth and it's effects on the travel of ships and the adverse effects of the rapid melting of the earths glaciers. We then went out to visit with our friend Bonnie Ramon, who is recovering from surgery. We were glad that she is doing well and excited that we are going to be able to work with her on a stake level. After our visit with Bonnie we drove over to Linda's house. Such a fun visit. Linda and her husband are from
Wednesday was our temple day and it was raining both going and coming home.. but the work in the temple was filled with a wonderful spirit and I feel so blessed to be able to serve in that capacity each week.
Thursday Sister Brown had PT and then we headed to our appointment and didn't get an answer when we rang the bell.. or knocked.. We then decided to return some of the dishes to a sister who had delivered dinner to us so we headed out to visit Nicole. She is such a treasure and so full of love. Her two oldest children were so happy to see us.. Paula is 4 and CJ is 2 1/2 and they just ran to us when we walked in. We chatted with Nicole as she put away her groceries and had fun with Paula and CJ..

This week was filled with so much and I loved being here. . .
"Heavenly Father and family are inseparably connected. When we understand the many dimensions of this connection, we can begin to comprehend more completely how personal and individual are Heavenly Father’s love for and relationship to each of us. Understanding how He feels about us gives us the power to love Him more purely and fully. Personally feeling the reality, love, and power of that relationship is the source of the deepest and sweetest emotions and desires that can come to a man or woman in mortality. These deep emotions of love can motivate us and give us power in times of difficulty and trial to draw closer to our Father."
--Elder Quentin L. Cook
Have a wonderful week and enjoy each and every moment. . . .
