2 different worlds

Church was awesome on Sunday. The feeling in sacrament meeting was the feeling you go to church for, but at least for me, often don’t feel (maybe due to excessive hangman games). During the closing hymn my emotions got the best of me and I started to cry. Dave, who was sitting close to me, looked over and saw I was crying. He smiled & then made a move…I assumed to put his arm around me for comfort, or maybe to grab a Kleenex to wipe his own pending tears. But his hand missed my shoulders and instead went straight for his pocket where he pulled out a gummy worm that he had hidden there, and popped it into his mouth.

Sunday school provided an equally comical experience. Our teacher opened by saying “I want us to imagine what it would be like to be blind – everyone close your eyes.” So, obligingly Dave and I closed our eyes. After 5 minutes of discussion with our eyes closed, and me shouting out comments (probably louder than normal b/c my eyes were closed) I peaked and realized while the teacher hadn’t directed us to, everyone else had opened there eyes the minute the discussion had begun. Several class members were looking at me after my last loud, out of turn comment, I’m sure thinking “how long will it be before these 2 realize everyone else has opened their eyes?”

those are funny- laughed out loud.

we keep having this debate in my house about how one of us (not me) thinks it's rude to bring and eat candy at church. But I always win in the end cos he can't resist every time I bust out the treats during a boring lesson.

Sara- is this true that the boy is here!??! If so congratulations!!!
I laughed out loud at the cowboy comment- I am already walking like a 6-shooter myself and I have a ways to get before having a REAL reaason to...

mmmmm...gummy worms. Laughed out loud. In fact the thought of you yelling out answers with your eyes closed carried me through the day.

I'm sad I missed that in Sunday School. I can imagine it though & it made me smile! I love the gummy worms story. That is way too similar to Jared & I!
