It's finally sunny!

We went to the convention yesterday and it was the best one yet! Truly it was. I was very motivated to do more, and even got some ideas of what to do in certain situations I am currently in, and will also be in in the near future. So I'm very grateful for those. I wish I could go in more detail about how great this convention was, but I can't! So it can be a surprise for most.

The only bad part was breakfast time, I went to Dunkin Donuts and it was in Brooklyn, and I think because I wasn't black the lady had a attitude with me, she finally told me she couldn't deal with me and told some one else to come take over. She said I confused her. Because I ordered a combo for myself-a eggwhite flat bread sandwich, with coffee, and added the hashbrowns because Vince wanted them and when you buy a combo it's cheaper. Then I ordered Vince's, which was a omelette supreme sandwich and OJ. Well, that was too much to order at once and confusing, and I needed to stop she said. And I didn't know how to order right, I shouldn't order a combo, I needed to tell her every thing al a cart, as she doesn't know how to do combos-even though it was on the sign above her, a number 6. And she finally threw her hands in the air and said she couldn't handle me. I was nice to her the whole time, she just didn't want to give me the price break of a combo and wanted for some reason for me to state every thing al a carte. *sigh* Oh well, next time I will make sure to try to get one of the men to take my order. They were very nice to me, and when he took over for her, he really tried hard to make up for her treatment of me. Which I appreciated.

But, the good thing was, I took the breakfast and went back to the assembly hall, and was able to eat with the brothers and sisters, and had a great time talking with them, and getting encouragement and spiritual refreshment among them!

Lela tried to give a comment today-it would of been her first-but the brother missed her. By the fourth try though we couldn't get her to say another one. She tried on paragraph 6, then paragraph 12, then for paragraph 16, we tried one last time for paragraph 20, but after practicing the first three with her and she didn't get called on, by the time we tried to get her to do the fourth one she wouldn't do it. I think she would of done it if she had been called on, one of the first three times. We all had our hands up trying to get the brothers attention, during the whole answering time of all of those paragraphs, and Vince even stood up, but for some reason the brother never even glanced our way, during any of those paragraphs. But, we'll just try again next week! :)
