A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.Thomas S Monson

The women's organization in our church meets every so often to have an "Enrichment" night. Last night was the first of 2009. Sometimes we have speakers that teach us first aide and CPR, or how to make a 72 hour kit for emergencies. Sometimes they teach us about breast cancer or what's new in children's literature. Sometimes we have a craft night. I like to call craft night "group therapy".
We had some refreshments.
We made pincushions from felted wool.
This is the one I made.
We made Valentines cards and tags.
There was a candy making demonstration. This is rocky road fudge. Delicious.
We covered these little boxes to put the yummy candy in. There was layered mints, coconut creme, and peanut butter filled chocolate, and of course the fudge.
We made some fun things and chatted. We laughed and got to know each other a little better. We truly were enriched.
