sunday


I really love our ward.

I did sharing time yesterday and I think I'd rather teach Gospel Doctrine. I cried afterwards because I felt like I did a horrible job. I was a little scatter-brained and I took too much time. I relaxed a little after thinking about how silly I must sound to be taking sharing time too seriously- kids don't care. They are so eager to learn.- I just wish the stake primary presidency didn't decide to come that day.

I know EXACTLY how you feel April! I used to feel the same way about sharing time 5 years ago. I used to plan my sharing times at least 3 weeks in advance, and scrutinize every detail. The more I did it, the easier it became and the more comfortable I got. It makes it easier when you love your ward!

LOL I taught sunbeams on Sunday and felt like crying afterwards also for different reasons I am sure. What is your calling??

April! I have not checked any blogs lately because Kelly has been out of town and I have been pulling my hair to try and keep up. I see I have missed a lot of great stuff you have written. Sorry about the phone. That is SO frustrating. I will email you my number. I remember when our computer got a virus and erased a bunch of priceless pictures when Haela was a baby. It is SO heart-wrenching. I am SO sorry your MS has been acting up lately. Have you tried some alternative things? Is the diet helping? I think there is a place for alternative and western medicine. My philosophy is do all you can with the alternative route and pray and if that doesn't work than pray carefully about trying the western medicine. Much of the time alternative works and is so much easier on the body. Then there are those few times that the western medicine is what I needed and really helped me. The greatest thing is that the Lord will help you know what YOU need to do. There are amazing things out there as far as alternative goes and it is becoming more and more mainstream. I don't know if I am making any sense. My mind is a bit jumbled due to sleep deprivation. Okay, I should stop blaming that! Anyway, you are such a strong person, April. I am constantly in awe by your faith and determination. You are such a fighter and I am inspired daily by you! I just love you! I will pray for you.
Have you heard of biocranial? I took Enoch for a treatment yesterday for his ears and it seemed to really help. It is supposed to be great for MS as well. Anyway, another thing to think about.

Love,

Charity

I'm sure you did a fantastic job and are just beating yourself up too much (women tend to do that, me bigtime).

Hey April,

sorry I hope you don't mind I read your blog. You're so funny! Anyways I just wanted to let you know that I thought you did a good job on sharing time Sunday--seriously. And I was back there by the Stake ladies and they were smiling and the expression on their faces said you were doing a good job. If it's any consolation, the first time I did sharing time I went home and cried too. I felt totally inadequate and did not want my calling. I think you are a great person and I love working with you!

What an adorable picture of the girls!!! How sweet. And I'm sure you did great - they are just kids -they love anything! Gospel doctrine would be scarier for me!
