The Crazy Life we Lead . . .

Whew!  This schedule continues to astound me . . .

I've been thinking it's just temporary for the last nine months now . . .

We started 5 hours away from home this morning in Tocoa, one of our member districts.  Returning from 5 days on the road (and in the air) meeting with members, missionaries, leadership, setting new missionaries apart, delivering missionary callings, interviews with members in the Districts just in time to shop and get lunch together for a P-day activity, we invited one of our closer zones of 30 missionaries to join us for P-day.

Sharing just a few of the interesting photos of the day . . .

 (Meeting with members and missionaries to set apart three new missionaries and 
delivery mission calls to newly called missionaries!)

(Looking pretty excited to be opening the long awaited mission call!)

While I was shopping and lunch preparing, Norm was holding an Office Staff meeting to discuss our transfer schedule and new arriving missionaries which begin tomorrow morning bright and early.

The P-day activity was a hike, which was wonderful and so much fun to spend three hours with our missionaries, climbed 1500 feet in elevation and left me inspired but exhausted.

After returning home I've been packing the boxes, bags, sheets, meal preparation stuff we haul with us about an hour away for our newly arriving missionaries and putting together all the things we need to welcome new missionaries.

(I may never eat chicken again and feel good about it . . .)

(No, this is NOT a school bus, but local transportation here in Honduras!  Our Elders 
arriving for a P-day activity with us!)

Finally at 10 pm it's into the shower, ordering a gift online for our tax person who we are so grateful for, especially since tomorrow is April 15th!

And it's up at 5am tomorrow to start the meal cooking in the crockpots that we will bring with us to our new missionary meeting and to pack the car and be out the door at 7am.

(Doesn't every kitchen have a setting hen caring for a dozen soon to be hatching eggs!??)


I feel so much better now . . . I knew you all just wanted to know!  Not all the days are like this one  - thank goodness . . . 

Some are much crazier :)

But it is good at the end of each day
to think . . .


We did a lot of good today :)

Yours may be a crazy life, but it's a good kind of crazy!
