yesterday both levi and i gave talks in sacrament meeting at church.
since we've been married...we've NEVER been asked, even with all this moving around and always been new. we didn't go to church last week, i was really sick, and then first thing monday morning we were asked to speak in church. so that meant we had six days to prepare a talk. i started to research and look by friday. saturday read a million different talks and nothing stood out. so i just continued on with talking about our life, and then by elevenPM saturday night, things finally got rolling...and i found exactly what i was looking for. AMEN! procrastination at it's best, i finished my talk just after oneAM!
it went well, i was actually more nervous that my kids were going to be loud or distracting, but colton came, as well as cherrie, and then all i had to worry about was anthony jumping off the balcony at the top...i was thinking that they would sit close up front, so that i could keep an eye on them, but they ended up being on top. i did hear isa a few times, she's so LOUD, does NOT know how to whisper. i think everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, most said it was the best talk ever! even levi was amazed, he didn't think mine was going to be all that great since i was working on it the night before. toldYA! takeTHAT! because it would have sucked if i actually prepared it early!
now the bishop says that he can use me as a speaker anytime,
uhOH...that wasn't the plan.
