The Puppy And The Watchman

Hello darling Young Women....

It's been a while since I've written, but I want you to know that you have been on my mind very much.
We loved seeing the Mia Maids at the Mia Maid Conference - thank you for coming! We hope you enjoyed yourself and find yourself look forward to next year.
I am excited about Stake Girl's Camp coming up June 21-25! There are going to be many great activities including crazy sock day, crazy hair day and pink princess day. And the best part of all - we get to all hang out together!
I wanted to share something with you that happened when I was coming home from working out one morning. I was walking up a steep hill and in the middle of the road was an adorable little puppy.

The puppy was in a place where it couldn't see that there were cars coming over the top of the hill and there wouldn't be any time for the puppy to run to safety - it would be too late. The puppy was playing and rolling around; when I realized the danger, I tried to get the puppy's attention and get it to run to me.
In the scriptures there is the term "watchman"; anciently, a watchman was responsible to keep the surrounding country under surveillance from a spot on the watchtower, to identify any hostile force that invaded the land, and to warn citizens of the invasion.
The day I found the puppy, I was the watchman - I could see from a spot that the puppy couldn't that there was danger ahead and I needed to move the puppy to safety.
Each one of you are blessed with watchman; sometimes it's your parents, sometimes it's your leaders - but you need to take notice of them and realize that they can see what you can't.
I love you, dear young women. It is my hope and prayer that each one of you will take notice of the watchmen in your life and know that they can see things that you don't see yet. They love you and want the very best for you.
I love you and hope you have a great week. TTYL~
