So Glad It Is a New Year

So today was the first Sunday of the year to go to church. I am so glad it is a new year with a fresh and refreshing start. People seem to be a little more upbeat than in December. Maybe I should say rested instead of upbeat.
I slept in this morning and it was so nice. There was overcast so our room stayed dark and kiddos were up WAY too late last night so they slept in very late and the house was quiet. We went to church and enjoyed the people bearing their Testimonies and one man sang while bearing his. It was different but at least he got up.
The lesson in Relief Society was on how if we have no family close to us that we can always lean on Relief Society there is always someone there for us. It is true but sometimes there are those of us who won't let others into our little wall we have built. This has been my problem in my past. I am working on this one.
Had a somewhat busy Saturday. Not getting accomplished what I had planned on but there is always tomorrow .
I am really glad that it is a new year. I feel good about all the possibilities that are waiting for me and my family. Have a wonderful Sunday evening. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I'm so sad I missed church today! I woke up, all ready to jump in the shower, when I started having a horrible stomachache. I laid down and fell back asleep and missed it.

Your ward sounded great today!

We've had the songimony before too. Funny. Although I'd much rather play the piano than have to speak. Today we had the sweetest man with down symdrome bear his testimony, and even though we could only understand a few of his words, it was so sweet.

Glad you enjoyed church. I had to teach my first lesson in Relief Society today but still enjoyed church, too.
