The hearts we touch

Well in Utah sometimes we have a snow day but here in TX they have ice day & today was one of them. We were to be in Heath TX at 8 am to listen to another Seventy, Elder & Sister Foster but it was canceled along with school, family home evening, institute, I did see the mail truck & one other truck but no one dares to walk to the mailbox to get the mail so we'll wait till tomorrow.  The zone leaders text bright & early to begin a Ice Day Olympic project for the first half of the day. How many pages you read in 1 hr, number of pages filled out in "My Family" minutes of role play, many minutes of exercise, companion study, how many calls to members or non members so needless to say we helped them on some but then we was getting weak & had to stop to eat. I think they may have been trying to keep the young ones busy but it gave the old ones out. We've spent most of our day getting our reports organized & getting all the stuff Elder Foster ask us to do along with stuff Pres. Taylor ask us to do to sanctify ourselves to be ready for the conference. It feels good to kind of get caught up a bit. Got our wash done too.  Hope you all enjoyed your day & was able to accomplish what you had planned. My companion & I have been walking early in the mornings & it sure feels great to be out in the fresh air. This week we've seen a lot of ducks in a little man made pond but it sure is fun to watch them. They have their mates by their side as they go about doing whatever ducks do. I walked alone one day & sat down on a little ledge, I heard a woodpecker, looked around & to my amazement it was the littlest woodpecker I've ever seen. Everything is bigger in TX except their woodpeckers. The moon is getting a little fuller & I always love that time of the month. The Daffodils are poking their heads up but they better not get to brave yet. It's a beautiful time of year here except for the last few days. The people are great & I'm just about that good. My thought for the week, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."   Sir Winston Churchill.  "It's not the things we get but the hearts we touch that will determine our success in life."  Mac Anderson. Scripture: 1John 1:5, Moroni 7:47. Please have a great week & enjoy, remember someone in Texas loves you. Sister Putnam
