I have to admit I wasn't in the mood to attend this meeting, but as Mary Beth was picking me up, I girded up my loins, put on a dress, and went. Later, I was so glad I did. I enjoyed the meeting thoroughly, not just the wonderful talks by our Relief Society General Presidency, but the inspiring message from President Uchtdorf - and, of course, the delicious dinner. (I'm always up for a free meal!)
|President Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency|
There were times I felt he was speaking directly to me, as he addressed a few things that have been troubling me lately about my own life.
|Every table had a lovely, unique centerpiece|
|Our Stake Center was filled!|
|Whittier Stake Relief Society ladies|
|Ellen, Mary Beth and Marissa|
|Pickering and La Esperanza Wards provided the tasty enchilada meal|
|There were women from every part of the Stake|
|Andrea & Nicole and the beautiful Christus centerpiece|
As you can see, some Priesthood group was actually in charge of serving us, so all the women could enjoy the evening. That was really nice!

I love my association with the Relief Society. These are the best women you'd ever want to meet. I'm lucky to be one of them. Thanks, ladies, for a lovely evening!
