Keeping Track of Company

I was talking to my sister (Mrs. Martin) and she had came up with the genius idea of keeping a list of the company we have had, and our traveling that we have been experiencing. We have only lived here, well let's see....we are starting on our 7th week, and we have been blessed with lots of activity (not that we don't stay plenty busy on our own, but this is the extra activities tied to hospitality). Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by it, but I always feel better for it. So I am going to keep a little list of company that comes in, or if we have traveled to visit with anyone. I think for now I will just put it under a label of "Guest Book". Not all of you will find it very interesting, but it's good for me to remember. Also, for some of you who read my blog and know the people I will mention, you can keep track too.

So today will be that....a quick trip down my faded-post pregnancy brain-memory lane. So if I have forgot someone or something just know I am not forgetting you intentionally, it's just my weak minded mommy

Okay digging out my calendar, so give me a sec......
Alrighty, here we go......

I wish I had kept a guest book of sorts, during our busiest company years to date, in Snohomish. I know it seemed I had a lot of company, but I wish I had dates and names. It will be fun and full of memories for sure.

Sis: I hope I can keep up with it. Maybe with posting the company and gatherings on my blog I will be better. Remember when Mom kept that calendar one year of all her company? It was pretty neat and crazy!

Wonderful idea! Sure seems to keep you all busy. Looks like you are seeing almost as much of Bill as we are. As Cheri says, Hillsboro is still in his blood, and Ron's, and Dales, and.... Okay, I think it's still in all of ours. I so hope the assembly there can make a rebound. So many, many, beautiful memories.

Great idea - I am a scrapbooker and I have to refer back to my blog all the time to see what order to put my pics in b/c I forget when I did what! ha!

I think this is a great idea. It will help you remember how your assembly has grown. Sometimes we forget the steps we take and the blessings God gives us. I wish I could see the brethren you mention. It makes me lonesome for everyone.

Cherrie said...

I am so glad that you are having so much company. Sounds as though God is working hard there. You are staying so busy.

Nadine said...

What a neat idea. You have been very busy. I think I'll start to do this.
