Good things

1. Austin Branch
2. New friends
3. Family

Today we went out to speak at the Austin branch. What a treat that was! Everyone was so kind, gracious, and welcoming. It was really neat to see how a branch functions, and feel the wonderful spirit that was there. D was one of 4 primary children, and K and B made 6 young women. Later we had dinner with the branch president and his family. It was so fun to get to know them and enjoy their company. We had a great time, and would love to go again. What a great day!

A friend of mine recently added a gratitude journal to her blog. Almost everyday she finds the time to write down 3 good things about the day. I have found that I really look forward to finding out what Sue was thankful for, and was so inspired that I thought maybe I could inspire you! I am also sure it will be good for me to look for the good things that happen each day. So here goes, and thanks for the idea Sue.

today's good things:
1. boys who insist on wearing suits to church (maybe a picture later!) he'll make a great missionary someday
2. good coaches
3. messages from a living prophet
4. temple worthy kids, and spouse

Confidence and basketball

K's experience with basketball is over for the season. I think she had a great time trying something new. As most of you know when she told me she was trying out for the team I asked, "Do you know how to dribble?" Well, she does now. And she enjoyed being part of a team, even if she sat the bench most of the time. She was thrilled to get a minute of playing time even when we were 20 points down! What did I learn? It doesn't really matter how you play the game as long as you improve, keep trying, have fun, and keep a good attitude. If only I could view life through her eyes. I am so impressed with her confidence to try something new even though the odds were against her having never played. So now, she will try track, and see how it goes.
