While I was at Church on Sunday, one of the women invited me to a luncheon for the "Sunshine Sisters" club. I was quite flattered, though I didn't know what a "Sunshine Sister" was. It sounded cute and fun so I said, "Oh sure, thanks very much". A few minutes later, Peter found me and I said, rather proudly, "Hey Honey! I'm going to the Sunshine Sister's club tomorrow afternoon! I was INVITED". Peter asked what a Sunshine Sisters club was. I said I didn't know, so I turned to the sister next to me and this is what happened....
ME: (very excited and animated) Hey! What exactly is the club I just agreed to meet up with? *big eyes-wide open and open-mouth smile*
SISTER: non-smiling, non-animated: "It's for women over 50".
ME: OH! So....it's pretty exclusive, eh?...HAHAHAHAHAHAH
ME: *turning back to Peter* It's for really awesome women with something to contribute to the Relief Society. Not everyone can get in. There's a waiting list. But once you ARE in, you're in for life. Whew!
PETER: So you have to be over 50.
sidenote: I went to the luncheon today and when I walked in, I did not know one single person. Not one. But there was an adorable little lady with a long, thick ponytail down her back in what looked like an old jogging suit. She ran up to me and said, (and I am NOT making this up), "Oh good, you wore old, beat up shoes too, like ME! That makes me feel better about wearing these!"
I looked down and she had what looked like old running shoes on. I just smiled and gave a thumbs up, patted her back, and smiled way big. I do love my sisters!!!
Second sidenote: I was wearing my "antique lace" socks and my brown ankle boots that lace up. It's a cute look...or at least I thought it was....hmmmmmmm
