I serve in our ward's Relief Society presidency. Because I was new to the area, I was pretty content to sit back and meet people as they felt like introducing themselves. No more! I'm a little overwhelmed trying to match names and faces, but I already feel so bonded to the women in our Relief Society. We're a diverse group: students, retirees, widows, lawyers, stay-at-home moms of toddlers, stay-at-home moms of teenagers, nurses, park rangers, city planners, writers, music teachers, high school teachers, translators, and on and on. But when we meet, it's like a hundred sisters getting together for a visit. What a great program.
And, to top it off, Mike and I have new callings in this place:
The San Antonio temple is small but features incredible stained glass throughout. The building is literally full of light. I love sitting in any of the rooms and watching the sun play with the different colors and textures of the glass.
