No Fireside in Vegas Today

As Tristi and I drove home from Elsinore yesterday, I was struggling with trying to have the energy to stay up and recreate my Emma Smith: Elect Lady So Misunderstood fireside. I'd lost my notes and so figured I'd have to stay up until well after midnight reading Emma and Joseph: Their Divine Mission and Emma and Lucy. I was dreading the experience and sad because I was so tired I wasn't in the proper frame of mind. I had been praying since Friday night that I would have the energy, stamina and strength in order meet all of my obligations with a cheerful smile and for the ability to still hear the Spirit as I tried to share my knowledge and testimony of Emma Smith as an "elect lady."

I so adore Joseph and Emma and really looked forward to immersing myself in their lives again, but I was so disturbed by the time constraints.

Elsinore was a little dismal for me, only sold $30 worth of books -- which is close to an all-time low for me. So I was already a little disheartened and dreading the drive to Las Vegas this morning. Halfway through the trip home, through the rain and snow (no, this is not a picture of the road I drive -- just here so you get my point,) my phone rang. It was Sheila from Las Vegas telling me the fireside was going to have to be postponed. She felt terrible about it, but I assured her that it was fine and all she had to do was get me a new date and we'd take it from there. After we hung up, it was as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I was so excited, I could hardly wait to get home and climb into my bed and pass out.

So, when I get home from church today I'm going to take a nap, a really LONG nap, and then I'm going to curl up and simply enjoy those two books. I can scarcely wait!
