gratitude: day 22

today i'm grateful for sunday.

it's not always a day of physical rest as in sleep and no stress, but it's usually a nice, relaxing day.

i love going to church. i actually always have. i always feel good learning about basic gospel truths. i've always loved my wards {well, almost always}. and i've had some great callings. right now i teach the beehives {12-13 year old girls}. they are great. they're so smart. so fun. so brave. so confident in their own 12-13 year old ways. they're all so different. it's a challenge to teach a lesson to 10 very different girls...that are even that much more different depending on the day and feel like i succeeded. but i love it. one summer i was the primary pianist. that's a great calling. just sit behind the piano with no responsibility for anyone else. play fun songs. listen to hilarious comments. laugh at the silly things kids do. loved it.

i love skirts and dresses. so sunday is perfect for that.

i love naps. we usually get one every sunday afternoon, with the right church time {hip hip horray for 10:00}.

i love nursery. so does leah. win win.

i love singing. i get to go to choir on sunday. ryan agrees to stay home with leah while i do it. that's really nice of him, don't you think?

we often have people over for dinner or go to someone else's house for dinner on sunday. yum.

we usually talk to our families on sunday. yay!

so many good things happen on sunday. i'm grateful for sunday.

We have a lot of things in common right now in our lives, I am teaching the beehives too, piano lessons, and training for marathons (half in my case)! Too bad we don't live closer, we would have lots to talk about!
