So I would just like you guys to know that Joel and I got FREE ice cream from Ben & Jerry's on Tuesday! Know why? Because April 17th was free ice cream day at Ben & Jerry's, and we just happened to be in Albuquerque for District Council. It was really good ice cream, and we only waited in line about 2 minutes. It made me happy. I was going to tell all you guys about it so you could get free ice cream too, but I forgot until it was too late. Sorry. Please forgive me.
District Council turned out to be pretty good. I enjoyed it this year. I have to admit, that I was dreading it, but ended up enjoying it. God really worked in my heart with some issues I've been dealing with...perhaps I'll write a blog about it...but not right now....later. I have too much to do today. And today I'm starting Brody's training to stay inside boundaries. We're using a wireless electronic fence. It should be interesting.
My mom wrote this on her blog yesterday. And I agree...and wanted to share it:
"We are deeply saddened and grieved over the murders of the Virginia Tech students and professors. What an incredibly difficult time this must be for the family members and friends. It will be difficult for students to return to the school after so much bloodshed. So very sad this all is. It is also sad that Cho was so lost. He was someone's son, someone's brother, but no one's friend. Let's be better witnesses to this lost world. Let's make it a point to make friends with the weak and unlovely and share with them the love of our Savior. Who knows? You just might save an entire school from enduring what Virginia Tech suffered."
So true. You just never know who you are impacting. I'm so sad for VT.
