I was asked to give a little blurb about "being creative" at the Relief Society meeting tonight. At first I couldn't really think of anything to talk about--both my sisters got the crafty/creative gene and I was left all thumbs. Well, after a little pondering I got to thinking about my blog and why I created it in the first place. I created it as an opportunity to record and better notice the blessings and humor in my life.
I shared some of my notable posts with the sisters tonight and felt a lot of gratitude that I had taken the time to write things down! I have a terrible memory, but my blog is a pretty fantastic way to remember.
What a blessing to re-read the times I've noticed the Lord's hand in my life and to continue to record those tender mercies every day.
The topic for the RS meeting tonight was "Creating". The idea was that every person is a creator and that if you put your mind to it, you can create anything. Well, to go along with the theme we had a chance to "decorate" cupcakes with marshmallow fondant.
As I have mentioned before, I absolutely suck at pretty much anything skillfully crafty. I knew it was going to be a disaster, and perhaps because of this I didn't try as hard, but I think I'll leave the cake decorating to my sister, Daya.
Pretty bad. Yes, it's ok to laugh.
