so proud

Apparently I need to revisit some basic rules with Abbie. For instance, only in rare emergencies do you ever go to the bathroom anywhere but the toilet. I'll spare you the details. We'll just say it involved looking out the back window to find my 5 year old daughter with her church dress up and her underwear down. It was one of those moments where you are mortified and have trouble containing your laughter at the same time.

On a side note, it sure is nice to know that my Heavenly Father knows me. For the last few days I have been having numbness and tingling in my arms and hands. It feels like they are on the verge of falling asleep all the time. I've been a little worried, after all I teach piano and I need my hands in working order, not to mention just being able to function normally! I'm not sure what is going on, my suspicion is that a change in medication I had last week may be the cause. I plan to call my doctor tomorrow. However, this afternoon I was being set apart for my new calling as Stake Music Specialist, and in the middle of the blessing the high counselor actually blessed my hands, that they would work well and I would be able to continue teaching and playing the piano. He of course had no idea that I was having problems. Amazing. I feel better now.

That is so neat. I love it when stuff like that happens. I know He loves me, but it is really cool to be reminded in ways like that.

Isn't it great to be reminded that our Heavenly Father is fully aware of each and every one us? We have always been taught that He loves us and knows each of us, but I think sometimes we forget. Reminders like this are the greatest.

I love those reminders, I had a similar experience when I was being set apart for my current calling, it always helps to know our Father in Heaven is aware of our needs! By the way I'm really starting to miss all of you girls, is there any chance you might be coming back out here to Utah for any reason? It would be great to see everyone again at some point in this life!!!!

Kids are great! There is no shame and total innocence when it comes to social norms. I can see how the back yard would seem a perfectly good place to relieve one-self.

that cracks me up about Abbie. My mom told me my sister and I did something along those lines when we were little. So embarrassing.
