It's raining, its pouring, and we are still working:)

-This morning I was singing along with Holst's "The Planets" and Sister Wiganda looked at me after a few seconds and said, "Freaky." Hahahaha I laughed. She's so funny and honest. I love it.

-Also this morning I opened an umbrella and there was a frog inside, and luckily I saw it before raising the umbrella over my head...and allowing the frog to fall right on top:).

-Also there was a spider the size of my hand on our back door this week. Siiiccck.

-I sang hymn 273 this morning before personal study. Usually when I saw the title, "Truth Reflects the Inner Senses" ...or something like that, I thought, "I don't even understand what that means....better not sing it." But today I felt like sight reading. Oh my ....SOOO GOOOD! It talks about how we can't point out the motes in others eyes, especially because there are beams on our own. Sometimes that's hard for me because I'm accidentally pretty opinionated and observant. But President Uchtdorf's talk about how the "merciful will obtain mercy" and Mosiah 4:19 and this hymn have got me thinking a lot this past week. About how we all depend on the same Being, we are all beggars. We are giving weaknesses to be humble, and we are given strengths to serve Heavenly Father....not to be better than anyone else. Not super related to missionary work, but important to me this past week nonetheless. 

Okay I love you all!
