I did a little (ok, rather loud) hurray!! today….because its fall and, for me, fall means tights!! I suppose I should have said something a bit more exciting – like, pumpkin lattes!! (which I did have this morning…oh yum!) – but I just do get excited when I can wear my tights again. Yes, tights are comfy and tights are super cute but, mostly, tights cover my ghostly white legs. Indeed. I have people tell me often (not doubt to try and ease my pain) that “pale is in”….then I suppose I am IN –and “in like flynn” – but, in or not, I look pale and sickly. And when I go to the store for work, I wear a black skirt. Black skirt. Ice white legs. Not pretty. So, hurray for tights! And just for the record…it has been raining all day. And when it is not raining, it is beyond humid. And I ran out of hair product. Like I said, not pretty. (Tonight, I am just letting the curls run amuck!) However not pretty the week has been for me, it has been a good week. We are in the middle of our missions conference at church – definitely one of the highlights of the year. The sermons have been from Esther (for missions!) and have excellent. After service each evening, there is fellowship in the gym and games for the kids. The games center around the different countries represented by the missionaries and I am always amazed at the things they construct. This year, among other things, there is a three story Japanese pagoda. I, personally, am thrilled with the homemade cookies! And, tomorrow night is the international dinner! This conference always instructs, convicts, impresses but also energizes and excites me. As overwhelming as it is to think of millions around the world who have never heard the gospel…and to truly contemplate the task before us – it is amazing, and even awing, to think that Christ would allow me to have a part in His plan. Looking forward to a great weekend. And just so you know. If you ever want to insert a picture of tights for visual interest on your blog, don’t bother to google “cute tights” or anything remotely similar. There are some weird people on the the internet. Just fyi.
