day four: a nap and some files

Mormon Helping Hands worldwide church service project
Elder Burton August 2009

I attended a 5K run this morning, as a spectator helping out my photographer friend, at Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake. It was beautiful morning and I was glad to be outside, wearing jeans and passing out business cards for Lu (find her at And my friend and colleague was there too, running with her daughters, and I was inspired by that. Being inspired fills me up.

After some IHOP on the way home, and some good conversation about marriage and relationships, etc., I walked into my house, greeted everyone, and then fell face first onto my bed, where I slept for three hours. When I woke up at 3:15 there were deep sleep lines on my arms and and quiet in the air. My good husband had shushed the whole house for my benefit.

Soon after waking I received a call from my mentor at work, who had been working all day on some of the paper work that needed to be done by Monday. She came over and walked me through some things in preparation for the four meetings I will be conducting Monday and Tuesday. Good lady. I will go in early Monday morning, after what I am anticipating to be a terrific Sabbath. It will all work out. I am confident.

Left over Chinese from our dinner out last night. Yummy Lo Mein. Now I will fold clothes and soak in the warm foundation of my home and fam.

Miss K, you deserve a nap. What a fast pace you've been keeping!
You're going to do well with your meetings Monday and Tuesday. Nice of A to come over and walk you through it all.
Have a great sabbath!

Perry looks so different from the last time I saw him - less gangly somehow. :) It's good to see how well missions mature young men. Can't believe he's almost done.

They do something in Salt Lake called Mama's Hands that my old ward participated in. I wonder if Mormon Helping Hands came out of that.

Perry looks GREAT. That picture is so sweet. Obviously Perry is loved there.
As for naps.......... :-) YAY. Love 'em and I KNOW You deserved Yours!

"Now I will fold clothes and soak in the warm foundation of my home and fam."

I just love that.

I love days like that.

I can't sleep for that long during the day though. I get all groggy and cranky. 20 minutes tops for me.
