Do you have any plans or traditions for Valentines? I met with a womens group on Monday night, and since I was still president that evening, I was responsible for the roll call question. I asked, "Share what you are doing for Valentines, or a Valentines memory." We range in age from 40ish to 75ish. This group started when the 40ish gals were in about the 1st grade, so we know each other pretty well. The sharing was such fun, and brought back some good memories of decorating boxes or brown sacks to gather the cards from our classmates. One gal said they had secret pals and they gave them token gifts each day of the week leading up to Valentines day. At which point, another gal who had just shared in humorous detail how she had decorated shoeboxes chimed in, "I like your school better!"
We had such fun that evening.
I had the audacity that evening to make a big statement. A couple of the gals LOVE to gossip. The 2 main gals who like to do that were comparing 2 versions of a rumor of a very huge, bad story that is effecting our little town. The thing they were comparing is if the ex moved to a nearby town, no she had heard that she still lives in our town. I piped up and said, "Thats why it's so bad to gossip." Silence...silence.. Then the rest of the evening was spent in such a wonderful uplifting enjoyable mode, it was unbelievable. There are only about 2 or 3 of the gals who are bad gossipers, but they are so dominant that they usually take over. I hope they maybe get the point of my opinion. I brought it up several times during my presidency, so at least they know. I feel good about how the rest of the evening went. A couple of gals even suggested that I continue as president. I declined for this year.
Anyway, what are your plans? We will be greeters in church first thing. Then for lunch we will forgo the potluck in church and go to DD and DSIL for lunch. In the evening we have a lesson in a series of lessons that was postponed from last Wednesday. I'm looking forward most to seeing the grandkids again. It's been a couple of weeks, and thats a long time for this gramma!
Now you share.
