Sunshine Sunday - the internet, reading, and the primary program

I am very grateful for internet access at home his week.  I'm back in action!  It was a bit frustrating to figure it all out, but that has a way of making you appreciate something you took for granted.  If you've emailed me in the last week and a half and not heard back, please be patient with me.  I'm still trying to dig myself out of my inbox.

I just finished a book about motherhood and seriously helped me see things a bit differently.  Sometimes I feel overwhelmed as a mother.  I love it, but I often feel like I'm falling short.  (You can find the book HERE if you're interested.)

I don't usually get around to reading, so the internet being down actually helped me in that regard.  I just wish there were more hours in a day because I'd love to squeeze more reading in.  I just started the Outliers, which is totally different than the book I just mentioned, but I really like it too.

Today I am really excited because it's our Primary Program at church.  There's one Sunday a year when the children (3-11yr. olds) get to do all the speaking and singing.  It's Rex's first program and he's got his lines all memorized.  He's seriously excited.  I'm over the children at our church, so I've been working on this a while too.  I can't wait to hear all the children speak and sing.  It's usually my favorite Sunday of the year.

Lastly, I'm grateful this week is over.  Do ever have a week when you know things are packed tightly and then other things seem so go wrong on top of it?  Then when it's over you can finally say, "Yeah!  I did it and it's over."  I love how life goes round and round - the weeks, the months, and the seasons - because it gives you so many chances to start fresh.

Thank you for being a part of this blog.  I really appreciate you.

Happy Sunday to you and me! I read the Mom book a while back and it really helped. I was a struggling single mom at the time and I think I read it six times in 7 years. Love your blog and I'm so glad you take the time to do it.

Love Emily Watts. She has a few really fun, easy, yet inspiring books.
Thanks for all you do, for your challenges each week.
And thanks for sharing all your boy tutorials. I just had a little man, and this has been so nice!

The Sunday AFTER the Primary Program is my favorite!
Ours is in a couple weeks.

Ours is next week and I've been in Primary for 1 month and have already had to write the program and now be completely in charge since our Pres., just broke her leg and has to be immobilized for the next 3 weeks and the other councilor is going through a divorce. AAAA! Good luck with yours but I can't wait until next week is over!

Oh, I know what you mean!! I've got my share of "those weeks" for sure, and I think so many people can relate. I just seems like a whirl wind and all I want to do is take a nap after it's done! But I'm glad yours is over and that you can now take it easy.

I hope you had a great Primary program. I know how much work it takes to do them. Keep up the great work and I love all your blog postings!

That hat is so cute! It totally reminds me of jayne's hat (from firefly). I hope it's one of your creations!

My husband read Outliers a few months ago. He really enjoyed it. I didn't read it, but he shared with me some pretty interesting things from it. It is sitting on our shelf. Maybe I should dust it off and read it myself! :)
