Day 652: Opinions!
So, I know his face is in the shadows, but what do you think of this one? Do you think it's better than the one posted yesterday?
So, there's this new book called "Daughters in My Kingdom". You can read more about it here. I'm in a bit of a hurry tonight. Basically, it's a wonderful book explaining the history of the Relief Society, an amazing organization of women doing God's work.
One of my sweet sisters-in-law suggested reading this book together and having a long-distance book group as women in our family. We read a chapter and discuss it via email. It has been my turn to lead the discussion on Chapter 5 for the past two or three weeks. The past two or three weeks have been some of the craziest and busiest of my life. Yesterday and today I finally had some down time and I got all caught up. Beginning the discussion on Chapter 5 and not holding my family up any more was today's Joyful Moment.
And then came an unexpected Joyful Moment in reading my sister-in-law's wonderful advice on how to help curb my son's tendency to pretend he's shooting everyone and everything everywhere we go. And to find out that everyone else in the group with a son has similar concerns. And her advice feels exactly right, as usual.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments at finally getting caught up on the good things in life!
