Elder Who?!

It’s all about give and take, right? As long as you give at least as much as you take – you’re good to go.
Well, yesterday was my turn to give and the Elders’ turn to take. 😀 Our Elders called the other day: “ Sister Cloward, we need to ask you for a favor. Would you be able to give us a hair cut?” My reply? “Jeez… I’m not a hair dresser… what are you guys thinking? I mean I do cut Craig’s & C.J.’s hair. Have been doing so for years… back in the day I used to cut my brother’s hair too,… oh well …sure! Come on over! But I make no promises!”So… here they were… not just 2 but 4 Elders (!!) on my doorstep when Craig answered the door. Luckily the other 2 were only the ‘dudes’ with the ‘sweet ride’ since our Elders are usually seen on bicycles or on foot only! 😀 We had a good time and some very nice and uplifting conversations. I love having the Missionaries over. The spirit they have is simply wonderful. The kids adore them and the job they do is just one of a kind! Thanks guys!!!As to their haircuts… well they were happy and I think I did a pretty darn good job. But you be the judge… 😀

… until next time …

Es geht doch immer um‘s Geben & Nehmen, oder? Solange man min. mehr gibt als man nimmt ist alles in bester Ordnung.
Gestern war ich mal dran zu Geben und die Missionare waren am anderen Ende und haben meine gute Tat entgegengenommen. 😀
Unsere Missionare haben mich vor ein paar Tagen angerufen und meinten: “Schwester Cloward, wir würden Sie gerne um einen Gefallen bitten. Könnten Sie uns die Haare schneiden?” Was hab ich dann gesagt? “Meine Herren…ich bin doch keine Friseuse…was denkt denn ihr? Ich mein, ich schneid zwar Craig’s und C.J.’s Haare, und das auch schon seid vielen Jahren, hab früher auch die Haare von meinem Bruder geschnitten, aber …. ach… oh…na jut! Kommt vorbei! Aber ich kann nichts versprechen!”Da standen sie nun, nicht nur 2, sondern 4 Missionare (!!), als Craig die Türe aufmachte. Glücklicherweise waren die anderen 2 nur die ‚Jungs‘ mit dem ‚coolen Auto‘, da unsere Missionare ja sonst nur mit dem Fahrrad oder zu Fuß unterwegs sind! 😀

Wir hatten viel Spaß, so wie gute und geistig aufbauende Konversationen. Ich liebe es die Missionare zu Besuch zu haben. Den Geist den sie mit sich bringen ist einfach wunderschön. Die Kids himmeln sie an und die Arbeit, die sie leisten ist einfach einzigartig! Elders – ich danke euch!!!Um zurück auf die Haarschnitte zu kommen… nunja, sie sind sehr froh damit und ich bin der Meinung, dass ich einen guten Job gemacht hab. Aber das könnt ihr ja besser für euch selbst beurteilen… 😀

… bis zum nächsten Mal …
