When I left my sweet husband last weekend for girls weekend at my parents home I clipped this little note to his pillow.
When I was younger my cousin taught me not to forget your PJ'S before bed.
That has stuck with me my whole life. In our home John and I always say our prayers together at night. Occasionally we miss our scripture study but we are trying so hard to make that a deep habit. We know that studying the scriptures makes for a strong foundation in our lives and in our knowledge of the gospel. I'd like to think of this blog as the ultimate journal, so I think I've got that one down. (sorry for the tangent)
So, here is the rest of girls weekend.
(Breakfast on the porch the first day)
(that's supposed to say with. not qith...)
(making caramel apples the second night)
(my skinny mother with our fruit skewers)
(grilled chicken the first night)
(we made these pumpkins out of wired ribbon)
(santa claus looking pizza)
"I wonder if you sisters fully understand the greatness of your gifts and talents and how all of you can achieve the 'highest place of honor' in the Church and in the world. One of your unique, precious, and sublime gifts is your femininity, with its natural grace, goodness, and divinity. Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength. It is manifest differently in each girl or woman, but each of you possesses it. Femininity is part of your inner beauty.
-James E. Faust
