This past weekend was an absolute favorite of mine.
On Friday night our branch had the opportunity to travel to a town an hour and a half away to spend the weekend away from city life as we listened to General Conference.
It was so relaxing to be completely away from the hustle and bustle of city life. No cell phone, no internet connection to worry about, just time to enjoy nature and the company of others in my branch.
This weekend we:
took hikes in hills found signs of Spring climbed trees like monkeys jumped from trees
listened to General Conference (which was so wonderful!)
smiled took pictures of Rosie dog and her nose and Molly dog observed the beauty of nature played croquet
slept in cabins got to know each other better
watched as children played with Molly played with Rosie and Molly ourselves played with glow sticks took pictures of (and held) a cute baby (I'm leaving this one un-cropped to show the background of the log cabin) I believe that Heavenly Father gives us Spring to remind us that new beginnings and fresh starts are possible. This weekend was a perfect example of that...
The people were great, General conference was wonderful (as always), nature was perfect. I loved being able to see the stars so clearly in the night sky and the big puffy clouds during the day.
A treasured weekend indeed.
How grateful I am for the blessings in my life!
