Hey y’all! How have you all been? I’m doing pretty good. My back is feeling a lot better which is amazing. I was able to actually play basketball for the first time in forever on Thursday which was mind blowing.

Basketball has always been a massive part of my life and one of the things I really enjoy, so getting even just a small part of that back has given me a lot of hope. So I’ll be able to actually play church ball (we have men, women’s, young men, and young women’s teams for every ward) and my ward is kicking butt. We’ve dominated in all of our games so far, so Region Championships is a pretty high possibility this year!

Speaking of young women’s, for our activity on Wednesday we took coats and blankets to this welfare home thing for kids. It’s basically a place where single (or not, but mostly) parents can drop off their kids for free so that they can get necessary things like Dr. appointments and job interviews done. It’s also a place for victims of domestic abuse, and more. In the car on the way to get ice cream, we were talking about how great it was that there was a place like this for struggling parents (mostly mothers) to get help with their children. Even thinking about it now, the most terrifying thing I can think of would be having kids and not being able to take care of them. My leaders said that it’s a mothers worst nightmare. So I am very grateful for the people who donate their time to volunteer to help those in that situation.

This is one of the pictures in the house, they had all sorts of cartoons everywhere.

This morning, the other blog that I’m a part of, The Artistics released our first magazine of 2017! It’s called Merry 2017, and you should all go check it out, here!
