Night Out

Have you ever gone to a movie and had all those feelings that you had put at the back of your mind just return and consume you up? This Friday night we went out .... date night with some friends a couple Ian and Chantel. One of those nights we were looking forward to, had great company the evening was lovely because we chatted caught up after not seeing each other in a long time. after dinner we decided to go and watch a movie. Wayne and I got the honors of picking a great movie, hilarious and really funny at the beginning and not so funny in the end. This is the only time I got out of a movie not hiding my beady eyes as every one ok not everyone but most of the other people came out crying and i too was part of that category I wailed, more like sobbed all the way home to the shower and kinda in bed .... the bed part was in my heart. Wayne is really brave so by the time he is sad you know it really touched him. And of course i loved the hugs and comforting not that i cried for that but i have a gorgeous hubby who consoled me through out our ordeal. Its not always easy to accept things the way they are but i guess some things just happen they way they do or as others say that's just the way it is especially that we had first hand experience of having three animals put down recently. MARLEY AND ME by Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson,..... we must say kudos to them it was great acting and by the time we left we had made up our minds about two things.
1. If that is how it is when people have kids we NOT having any children.
2. We are not having any pets if that is what we will have to go through despite it being a fact of life.

Then again on the other hand after a couple hours of reminiscing about our animals we realised that the joys of having them out weighs the sad part when they leave and besides its was just a movie. So are we having both .. yes but not any time soon but its definitely in the pipeline....
And besides the crying bit at the end we really enjoyed the movie. Thanks babe, Ian and Chantel we really had a great time. Ahh Mom I'm not so sure if you should watch it i wouldn't recommend it for you. But hey others can watch it :)

The CALLING !!!!

I really don't know how to begin this.... I think no well it was a Monday 23rd mar 2009 around 10am when I received a call from Wayne and here is how it went:
Wayne: babe I have just received a call from stake president and he wants to meet us for an interview this Saturday .(28th Feb)
me: well that's cool what time ? as we have to do our monthly grocery shopping?
Wayne: at eleven thirty but I'm really worried about it.
Me: OK , may be you are getting a stake calling ......

We were so nervous and anxious so we decided to go to the temple during the week. After the temple trip we felt so much at ease and kinda relaxed till we actually met stake president. Prior to the meeting we kinda had the discussion about our ward splitting as we knew it was happening but didn't know the exact dates. So we were pretty sure Wayne wasn't going to be called as a bishop as our confidence was boosted with the age factor- he was too young. But needless to say, we thought wrong, our ward split and he got called as Bishop.
Its something we both hoped and thought would never happen to us and it did. When the lord calls, we have to get up follow and obey. Its a challenging calling but we know its Heavenly father's plan and we have already learnt a lot and we taking it as a time to learn and grow both physically and spiritually. We know it wont be easy but we will get through it as the lord is on our side.We got to experience two incredible things a ward split and my husband being called.
Mom was able to fly to be there for this transition, it was really special and nice to have her around plus we got the bonus of seeing her and enjoying her company and support for a whole six days which we weren't sure would happen. Just to say mom has a very hectic schedule she is on high demand it was wonderful to be graced with her presence :) Dad wast able to make it but we enjoyed his support too.
We are really grateful for the blessings the lord has given us and enjoy especially the church.
Before leaving for the airport at 5am :)

Cansa Shavathon 2009

This time of the year has finally come around, the time when lot of brave men and also women walk around the country with bald heads or spray colored hair for a good cause, one of them is my sweetie. They do this in support, awareness and fight against cancer in South Africa. Wayne and his close mates have done this and its become part of their tradition, the guys always gather up and have their heads shaved together and after that usually hang out. This year wasn't the same as we have now moved from Durban and we weren't able to join them, instead he and his colleagues organised a session at his work place and alot of people turned up to have their heads shaved and some who didnt cut their hair had it sprayed. Well done to all those who participated in this cause. I just had to take pictures of Wayne's head when he got home.
