week 19

August 26, 2013

And the Rain came down...


Tudo bem?! So this week was interesting, lots of ups and downs.

One up was we had a baptism in our ward. It was a weird situation because the girl who got baptized lived in the elders area so we taught some of the lessons and the elders taught some of the lessons. We tried to get her to go to the right ward but her fellow shipping family was completely against that. So she got baptized in our ward, which was great.I don't know her very well but I am so happy for her! But then last night we got a call from the elders saying the fellow shipping family wants them to teach the new member lessons. So that was frustrating because we were suppose to teach those lessons, that was a down. For some reason the fellow shipping family doesn't like us and hasn't for a while, we don't know what we did wrong. But I know the elders will do a great job teaching her.

Another up was that it rained yesterday! I had been kind of missing the thunder storms we get at home during the summer and then yesterday we were having dinner with some members and this huge thunder storm rolled in and the rain came pouring was awesome ha ha!

Sister Harris was sick for a couple of days this week and so I had a lot more time to study. I found a quote from the August Ensign that I really like by President Thomas S. Monson- "So much in life depends on our attitude. The way we choose to see things and respond to others makes all the difference. To do the best we can and then choose to be happy about our circumstances, whatever they may be, can bring peace and contentment." I loved that and its made me really think that we choose to be happy. Sure sometimes things happen that aren't fair but we cant let those things get us down, we have to keep going. Being happy is so much better than being miserable.

Well have a great week everyone! Keep on smiling and be happy :)
