Was your weekend as full of good people as our weekend was?
After track, we picked up Anna's cute friend who came over to help Anna get ready for the dance. These are two of the sweetest girls ever.
Leah had a play at school (she was the spider and you can watch her performance on Instagram-- moss moments).
We brought home a friend. All Leah's friends are boys.
I experienced a tender mercy. My yard and home was needing some TLC. Spring cleaning is no joke around these parts. My family is gone so often with school and many church activities that it is sometimes hard to find the time to serve in our own home. We had elders and sisters, missionaries from our church, come for dinner on Friday and they offered to come a little early to help out.
While I cooked dinner and sewed up torn suit pants for the Elders, they worked with my boys cleaning out garden landscaping beds and leaves. The sisters organized the toys in my basement playroom. It was SO helpful. I realized that serving and being served is part of God's plan for His people. It's a good plan where we are all blessed.
After NYSMA the girls and I went shopping while the boys stained picnic tables and finished up the yard.
Although my husband didn't understand why I was sewing triangles an hour before company was expected, I think the cute pennants added to the ambiance nicely.
Oh, life is beautiful!!
I'm do grateful for weekends like this one that are packed so full of goodness.
