The parable of the happy cat lady

Today was a long one. Started at 3 a.m. when Scotty decided he couldn’t sleep… on and off until 5.
Up at 6 to ready for our yard sale.
{first one we’ve ever hosted, btw…
a ton of work… but needful under the circumstances}
Saw a fabulous sunrise.
Sold oodles of stuff… came out ahead with $800.
Mostly we were just so glad to see the stuff goooooo…
going, going gone… more breathing room in our house!

anyhoo…
yard sale.
movie to see inside-out. {more on that later}
nice reward for kiddos helping at said yard sale.

quickie dinner of yellow rice and big chicken, made by my love, Jimmy.
and then off to the General Women’s Meeting at the Stake Center with Hannah.
Loved the messages.
This was the last message, shared by Elder Uchtdorf. His parable of faith, hope, and charity was a cheerful one… about the happy cat lady (as someone on instagram put it!).
walk through life uchtdorf

I’m hoping as we go through the challenges of the next few months of moving that we will find the bits of joy scattered… the tender mercies given to us by God… and have faith in every single footstep… and hope in Christ to lift us up… and love for others.
