Busy Weekend

During the weekend, on Friday night, our church had a mothers day dance, just for the mothers. Some performed some dances, and one that really caught my eye was the Spanish dance. It was really funny, and there were also some moves that weren't even Spanish.

As soon as Friday night was over, it was Saturday morning of course. And for an early mothers day gift, I woke up early with my sister, and we cleaned the whole house, made breakfast, and washed the dished for my mum. She woke up in surprise. But as I was cleaning, I remembered that we were going to my cousins 1st birthday party.

It started at 4:00, so as soon as we were all ready to leave, we waited for my mum to get back, but then we left. When we got to the birthday party, we were one of the first ones there, so me and my siblings decided to go play on the slides, but the venue was at a place just like Chipmunks in New Zealand. We had so much fun, but as we heard we were about to do the prayer and eat, we quickly slid down the slide, and ran to the table. It was a really fun night!

It's was 11:00pm, and then we left the party, because we needed some rest for church the next morning, but as I woke up, I realised it was Sunday which was Mother's Day. I woke up, and then I got ready for church, and then I made breakfast for the family, but especially for the mothers. It was a interesting and busy morning, but we left to church with excitement.

As soon as we arrived at church, my mum and her sister in-law got a badge to stick on there tops. It was to show how they are greatful for them being mothers, and how mothers are greatful for there children. But church was starting and it was all about Mother's Day. The bishop was talking about his wife and all the other mothers, and he also said "Children will always love there mothers, and they are greatful for there mothers, but even thou they don't show it, when they say it, they really mean it" and it was actually true! Even thou I don't often say I love you to my mum, or I never show how much I love my mum, I really do, and I'm greatful for her in my life, because the greatest gift my mum could ever give me, was my siblings.

Once church finished, we departed to our Sunday school classes, and what I learnt from there was 'if you pray, you will find the answers to your questions in your prayer'. And the lesson teacher asked 'isn't it weird when you are going through a trial or a challenge and then when you open the bible/scripture, the verse your reading is related to the challenge your going through'? And everyone in my Sunday school class said yes.

Sunday school was over, and we left off to youth/young women's. It was only for young women from the age of 12 to 18. It's kind of the same thing as Sunday school, but it teaches more like lessons in life, and it helps you with what your going through in life. There are three groups in young women's and that is 'Beehives from 12 to 13', 'Mia Maids from 14 to 14' and last of all, 'Laurels from 17 to 18' and I'm in beehives.

What I learnt in my class for beehives was to also learn to appreciate your mother and father and the bible reads "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you" and this verse if found in 'Exodus 20:12'. It was a really persuasive lesson, but also very helpful. But the lesson was finishing up, so we were talking about other different subjects.

Sabbath day was over, and Monday it was, the 11th of May which is my one and only brothers birthday, his 6th birthday. But what he did to celebrate it was taking a cake to school, and sharing with his fellow prep class.
