Ya Never Know...

I've been having one of those days.

Alright, if I'm being honest {which I try to be on this blog} - I've been having one of those MONTHS!

Ever feel like that?

Like 'Wo, is me!? What else could go wrong?'

Some days are better than others, that is for sure.

Tonight I opened up my emails to find an email from a blog reader in Beaver, Utah who said this:

Hey Marci -

I was sitting at the Utah State Track Meet (at BYU and 5 rows down from me 
was a lady cutting out your cute handouts... I got a kick out of it because I recognized them.   Got my giggles on and thought - yuppers a YW leader never stops.

You guys!

My heart wanted to explode!!!

And then I was checking my blog comments and came across this gem from a blog reader in New Zealand:

DEAREST SISTER MARCI THANkYOU FOR YOUR TIME LOVE INSPIRATION AND n>r>g SUCH AMAZING THOUGHTs AND CREATIONS, bless YOU FOR HELPING ME TO BLESS OUR visiting and visited SISTERS HERE IN Hastings NEW zEALAND Flaxmere Stake of zion... lol people like you help to forward the work of the Lord and his kingdom. God bless you. Sister Kireka oxox 

Now please know...I'm not posting these to gloat by any means.
I'm posting these because - - - -


You just don't!

When I create my handouts and write on my blog - - I honestly still think in my brain that my mom is the ONLY one who is reading this and the ONLY one who will print out my handouts. LoL. She's always been my number #1 fan. 

To know that people are actually INSPIRED by the stuff that 'silly ole me' posts - - - really warms my heart.

So THANK YOU sweet blog readers. 

On a night like tonight - this was just the pick me up I needed.  

Oh  - and so was THIS video that we watched for Family Home Evening tonight.  LOVE!

{Fun new FHE idea coming atcha tomorrow!}
