Farewell Summer hello Uchtdorf

I don't think I ever blogged about the lovely summer evening dinner with the Bagleys.
I wanted to post this because usually I host a delightful
End of Autumn dinner with good friends.
It is so not happening this year...Lil peanut would rather die than assist me
in making salmon with vegetables. Yuck.
So I posted this delightful dinner we had in June.
It seems so far away.
Previous Farewell Summer party here
I will have to plan on having my Welcome Autumn Dinner party
...when Lil Peanut will allow.

Last night I joined my sweet sisters to another glorious General Relief Society Conference.
Here is what I LOVED and so appreciated :

Sister Julie B. Beck- "I am grateful that one of the Lord’s primary purposes in organizing Relief Society was to give the women the responsibility to help prepare “for the greater blessings of the priesthood found in the ordinances and covenants of the temple.”

Sister Silvia H. Allred- "The scriptural declaration “Charity never faileth” became the motto of Relief Society because it embraces these teachings and the charge that the Prophet Joseph Smith had given the Relief Society sisters to “relieve the poor” and to “save souls.”

Sister Barbara Thompson-
"Once again, “Lift up thy heart and rejoice, and cleave unto the covenants which thou hast made.” Keeping covenants is true joy and happiness. This is comfort and peace. This is protection from the evils of the world. Keeping our covenants will help us in times of trial."

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf- "Sisters, wherever you are, whatever the circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love."

Oh, and check this very handsome photo of my hero Dieter Uchtdorf...oh yeah.
