Dare I admit it? I think I do. The 2nd and 3rd blocks of church today were cancelled, and I felt...relieved. Don't get me wrong. I love church and I look forward to going each week. Today was my day for Sharing Time in primary. I love primary, and I love doing Sharing Time. It's fun for me to figure out different ideas to teach the kids about gospel topics. Today the topic was on the Creation. I planned ahead, and I thought about this lesson all week (didn't prepare it until the night before, but I researched and outlined everything before hand). So I get to church planning on going to the library to get my needed materials and....they don't have them; for two of my activities. Great! What was I supposed to do? They can only color for so long. Good thing I brought the play-doh as a "just in case". I had been praying and praying that this lesson would come together, and during sacrament meeting I find out that I don't have to worry about it because the weather is so bad that they are sending us home! Whew. Talk about relief. The bishop found me afterwards and asked me why I was smiling so big when he made the announcement. I told him that Sharing Time just wasn't coming together and this was an answer to a prayer (Okay, so I really don't think God sent bad weather just so I could get out of teaching Sharing Time, but I felt blessed anyway). The bishop just laughed and said he was glad he could accomodate me.
I can't believe how hard it's snowing outside. Last night it rained and was rather warm and I was expecting that again. Nope. I realize we probably don't have as much snow as our parents in Utah, but boy...I was looking forward to Spring. I don't know, maybe winter wouldn't be so bad here if they would plow or salt the roads, but since that's a bad topic I'll just let it go.
