I have no picture (again), but I want to write about our adventure to Duke University Hospital in No. Carolina last Sunday, March 28th. First of all, we almost didn't go to church, but I'm so glad we did because everything about the classes and speakers were perfect! Best yet, my dear friend who had to move came to our last meeting-->Sacrament Meeting. After a great 3 hours in church, Clair and I had to take off on our long 7 hour drive to Duke. It turned out to be a drive through a terrible wind and rain storm. There was lightning with whirlwinds and tornados parallel and behind us. SCARY! We listened to radio news during our drive and TV news in Durham. Driving home we saw the results of places we passed the night before. Where we saw lots of lights from security cars before on our left side, houses were totally torn apart. On our right there were trees pulled out of the ground and lakes of water. I feel we were blessed with safety for attending our full day of church earlier Sunday!

Here in Ringgold, GA we have had lots of rain and wind, but now we are on to some nice Spring weather. At this time of year, after it has been raining, is the perfect time to dig into our clay soil outside to pull weeds and plant gardens. I had been pulling weeds and checking out my serviving perennials and then the Young Women's leader called me. She asked if I could be their "Service Project". I felt embarassed at first, but I sure appreciate them. They brought me and planted a bunch of yellow and purple Pansies and I love them. Yesterday I bought more flowers for planting by these Pansies (shade) and out back where there is LOTS of sun. My Pansies look perfect and I will include a picture next time.
