This week has been quite the week. Shaniya ended up passing away on Monday evening. Since then that family has had quite a bit of drama which ended in us having to leave a lesson early due to the sister calling the cops on her brother. Another family in our ward has also been going through sudden drama with an unexpected separation and request for divorce. We have done our best to not be involved, but goodness, life is crazy.
Though it has been a hectic week, we were able to find some peace yesterday at Church. We had the opportunity to speak in sacrament meeting yesterday. We met up with the Elders earlier in the week to discuss possible topics which would be beneficial for the ward. We decided on going with an overall theme of families. I discussed service in the home which was a really great topic that had lined up really well with past Ensign articles I had been reading earlier in the week.
Another positive side of the week is the noticeable turning of the season. The leaves have started turning brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow. I'm looking forward to when all of the trees are covered in an array of these colors. Autumn is a wonderful time of year.
Well, I hope that everything is going well in wherever you are in the world. I love you all and hope that everything continues working out. Keep it classy.
