I'm excited for the arrival of this weekend. I love General Conference. Despite the fact I can't curl up and watch it on the TV (alas, no satelite), I will be curling up to attempt to listen to it via the computer. I say attempt because I DO have children. Anyone with children will agree that you can only attempt anything. I hope to overcome the wiggles with a conference activity book my friend emailed me. So, here's hoping!! I love to hear the words of our Prophet. I love the opportunity to re-evaluate my life. Well, more honestly I welcome it and fear it. I hate the feelings of failure that creep in...but, that is where trusting the Lord comes in. If I can relax and let the Spirit touch my heart to make it an uplifting experience, I WILL grow and become who I want to be.
I am also excited for my sister, Stephanie, coming. What!? Wasn't she just there? Yes, she was. I know, I know, I'm absolutely spoiled!! Kit needed to go out of town this upcoming week for some training and my birthday happens to be this week. My loving sister hated the thought I would be alone (with children) for the big day, so she is coming. I also need to send out a gi-normous and heartfelt thanks to my brother-in-law, Phillip. He is willing to send my sis to me and stay home to watch their two boys. Thank you!
