It's Thursday Time...

Alright, Thankful Thursday, yet again... A few things serious, and a few things silly, this time around.

1. Bishop Flamm... what a great bishop he has been for us! We had tithing settlement on Sunday, and it was really our first chance to sit down and talk with him since we moved into the ward. In our "interview" he helped to calm a lot of the worries I've been having lately, made me feel so welcome in the ward, and offered us some great advice. I look forward to getting to know him better.

2. Christmas music... I always wait until after Thanksgiving to start listening, and every year I anticipate it more. I love the feeling it brings to our home and the feeling it brings to me.

3. Fun socks... I always wear fun socks to work, and patients notice. I like to think it helps brighten their day as well as mine.

4. Candy cane Oreos... Delightfully minty, but not overwhelming.

5. A missionary in the family... I can see how much it is blessing everyone in our family, including those we've "adopted". I can also see how much Zach is changing and growing, even in the short time he's been in Hawaii.

A few other things of note: I got a calling at church on Sunday (finally!). I am now the primary chorister. I am very much looking forward to the new adventure this is going to bring to my life, and for the chance to get to know some of the children of our ward. This calling is going to be a stretch for me, but it just goes to show that the Lord knows what we need, even if it's not always what we think we want. Luckily I know several people that have done this calling and have ideas, visuals, and many other things I can "steal".
Work is finally picking up again, which is strange. Usually we don't have too many patients around this time of year, but there seem to be a lot more sick people right now. Maybe they'll all clear out before Christmas, I'll just have to wait and see.
We've decided to put house hunting on hold for awhile. With Steve's job on the rocks we don't want to fall in love with something we can't have right now. We think we'll probably stay where we are for another 18 months or so. Luckily I'm quite fond of our apartment, and it seems to be working out as a good place for us. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for us.
I think that about covers it for now. I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season.

I think this is a great idea Annie. I think I might have to do something similar.

Hey Annie, it's Melanie Quinney. Alright, it's time for me to come out of the blog stalking closet. I found your blog a while ago and just haven't mentioned it to you... is that totally weird? Anyway, glad to hear things are going so well for you guys. And I'm really glad your enjoying your ward (what I would have given to be in that ward...).

We've got a blog too you're more than welcome to check it out.

Hope all continues to be well.
