Day of rest?

So Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, this Sunday however was far from it, it was however very enjoyable. Jared gave a talk in sacrament meeting and did a great job! I substituted on the organ, which meant that Brandon spent the meeting with another family, he did not mind in the least, sometimes I think he prefers to be with other people more than me. :) I got to do sharing time, which was fun, but I am grateful it is not common for me to need to do it. Then that night we went to dinner at my Grandma Osborn's house. We drove through a sand and wind storm to get there, but it was worth it. Before we moved into our home we lived for four months with Grandma Osborn, so it was kind of like going home. She is an amazing women! She will be celebrating her 89th birthday this September, and acts younger than I am. She is still in the real estate business, plays the organ at the temple and in church, and helps to take care of the elderly people in her neighborhood, most of whom are younger than she is. What I like the most about her is how interested she always is in everyone but herself, and how service oriented she is, for example, she invited us to dinner, when it should have been the other way around. We had a great evening with her, as you can see on Brandon's face, then we drove home through a monsoon, while Brandon cried 90% of the way. Maybe next Sunday I will get to take a nap. :)

I think Sundays are the most stressful days of the week!

You may as well get it all in on one Sunday and relax on the others!
