Grateful Sundee


  1. Prayer - specifically Annette P.'s Relief Gang prayer that blessed the "teacher with calmness" and something else that realized she must really know I am a spaz and DO NOT LIKE speaking in front of others. I was chillin'. It still looked like everyone in the decent crowd was like "huh", but I only sweated through my G's in 5 regions of my body instead of it totally dripping down my face (like the previous time I spoke in church). Seriously, it was her prayer.
  2. Weather Radar - AK and Matt have been glued and I've been all - dudes, this storm is totally going to peter out by the time it gets to us. Within the hour of the Stayner's taking off for California, it started blizzard-like DUMPING. They just missed the storm, otherwise poor Kay would've been stuck here at least another day (I know what's it like to want to be HOME).
  3. Going snowshoeing with my brother. I wish we could've gone again. It was so nice to chat and really talk out there in the stunning beauty of Millcreek with the perfect winter cover. And I got to duplicate the experience with my sister-in-law on the same beautiful afternoon.
  4. My favorite gift that I finally used on Friday - my bike trainer. It is awesome! P thinks it's really odd, and O can't believe I am not going anywhere but riding so hard. H wanted to try it, and although he is getting so "all growns up" he couldn't quite reach.
  5. The day you realize, with a spouses' shared tear, how your 6 year old is all growns up. He was really listening in F & T today, saying "Amen" and laughing and just being all sit up straight and all growns up. What a babe.

I love your gratitude and a man who can cry! Even if they chalk it up to hay fever.

Seriously, you really hid your spazzy nerves and sweat incredibly well. You seemed really poised and at ease and even got the ladies talking, which I've noticed happens most when the teacher is candid and relaxed. It was a great lesson, I could tell even through my baby yelling up at the light fixture and also having to leave the room to solve a RS secretarial issue. I wish you were a monthly teacher. I know, I know, you do not wish.
