This week was not my favorite week but still very good! We ended up dropping all seven of the people we were teaching. That was super disappointing because you feel like you did everything you could and still failed. Ahh agency is so annoying sometimes 😉 like you know how much this gospel would bless their lives but yet they don’t understand that! It seemed like every appointment and finding attempt was a bust this week. #disappointing
BUT, yesterday my sister emailed me her talk from Stake Conference and it was all about being positive. It was just what I needed to hear. It can be hard to focus on the good when there is so much bad going on in the world but when we do our life changes.
We can choose to be happy anyway. We can choose to find the good (it is EVERYWHERE!!). We can choose to not focus on the bad. We can choose to be who we want to become. We can choose to be like our Savior and love. CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY! Remember, all sunshine makes a desert.
-They asked us to be the judges for the Chili Cookoff at our ward Halloween Party. We are both big wimps when it comes to spice so I about died.
-THE WEATHER. If it could just be this temperature year round I would not complain.
-We were knocking on a door and we had already knocked twice and then the car in the driveway starts and we about had a heart attack. I think that was their way of saying “not interested.” Haha imagine if they were watching in their window. They would have seen two girls nearly fall off their porch. They probably got a kick out of that.
-I seriously saw the fanciest trailer house of my life. Complete with a garage. Still wish I had taken a picture.
-I got so many fun letters this week! Thank you all!! They seriously make my week!
-We’ve been making a lot of videos for FB…it’s a struggle (basically we just end up laughing the whole time haha) but please share the ones we do decide to post! It is crazy how we can be knocking doors for two hours and only talk to two people and then do a video that reaches nearly 500 people!
-I learn SO much each and every day. I am so grateful for the challenges and the hard times because it is shaping me into the person Heavenly Father needs me to be. I am supposed to be here helping people but really they are helping me. It’s pretty great!
Oh, and just FYI we get to go the temple on Thursday next week so that will be our next prep day 🙂
Have an amazing week!
