Mummy and Daddy!
We had quite the week. I'm not quite sure where to begin. Let's work backwards
This week we painted Sister Sam Peel's stairway. I resisted every urge to dunk my head into the paint bucket and prance around!!!! I just swirled my hands in it instead! There's something so therapeutic about slapping paint on walls.
We also celebrated my 9 month mark...wow....can you believe I've served half of my mission already!?!??! I still feel like I'm brand new most days :D Wow...that came way too quick. Weird.
In other news, Miss Rose Cousins went to the temple this week with our branch and did baptisms for the dead for the first time...along with Mick and Joyce!!!!! WOW! I tell you...the people here in Wharfe Valley Branch do not mess about! They all loved every minute of it, and want to start their family history now. Sara and Kevin talk frequently about how much their looking forward to getting married, baptized and eventually sealed!!!! Wow! Miracles all around! I can't even handle it sometimes!
Yesterday, we went with some of the Elders to the Bradford International Media Museum! It was so beautiful! Talk about beautiful design...delicious birch wood everywhere...aqua glass.....colors....paint....photography....typefaces....stainless steel....interactive activities....beautiful papers and books!!!! Kid in a candy store right here!!!! There were seven floors of wonder and delight. One of which was a television floor where we did the weather forecast and casted the news :D The best P-day of my life!
We can't forget the Royal Wedding now can we. Everyone we talked with claimed that they were going to escape the wedding and go on holiday.....which was exactly what they did. There were so many cars on the road it was unbelievable! We had a lunch appointment with some members and they "carelessly" happened to leave the television on whilst we ate. So.... :D we saw snitbits of the wedding. Didn't you love her dress!!!! That's the only reason I wanted to see it! Oh I thought it was a nice mesh of traditional and modern. Let the record show that I called that she'd have her hair half up and half down, AND that she'd wear the queen's tiara. Thank you very much. I also really liked that they brought the live trees into Westminster Abbey...and all those hats! Ooooh I loved it.....I mean....I loved those miniscule snitbits I just happened to catch betwixt bites of pizza. :D It does make me sad every time they say "til death do ye part." bah! Learn the gospel! It doesn't have to be that way!!!!! What a miracle it is to know that those we love don't have to be separated from us...that we can live with them forever! Miracle! Heavenly Father is so good I can't even handle it!
I'm so excited to hear from you this week! I love you so so much! Thank you for letting me be here!
Love always and forever,
Your Sister Stephanie White
