We had a fun Stake Enrichment tonight! We arrived to yummy food--a sandwich and desert buffet--although the lack of tables was challenging. The decorations were cute with a Wizard of Oz theme. We were able to choose from 3 different workshops--"Train your Brain," a stress managment class; "Heart of the Home," FHE class; and "Fresh Courage Take," Parenting class. I chose the latter two and got some good tips and information. I really wished we could have gone to all three classes...I could have used the Stress Managment information too!
More than the information though, I am always so grateful to be able to get together with the ladies of my ward to chat, share stories, commiserate and laugh. I appreciate any chance I can get to catch up on our lives and see each other face to face. We live in an awesome time, when we can contact each other with a click of the mouse...but nothing beats being able to see a friend's smile, hear the emotion in her voice, or feel her arm around your shoulder or give her a pat on the back. I feel like my circle of friends has grown so much with the advent of blogging, facebook, email, etc. and I love staying connected in those ways...but I think my favorite is still getting together for a good old fashioned social. There's nothing like good friends. Thanks, girls!
