The Inactive Sister...

Ok just some background info on this story, I am working at a place called the Bobby Benson Center, its a rehab facility for teen addicts, and because of the nature of the job I've had to work a couple sundays in a row. We have been joking with our friends (meaning alex has been making fun of me with our friends) about how I'm inactive. Everytime he see's a relief society sister hes been saying something like "hey my wife is having a hard time going to church so if you see her invite her to come with you on sunday..." And I just smile and let it known that I'm just waiting for a nice casserole to be left at my front door to make me feel welcome...
SO a couple weeks ago we were playing games with some couples from our ward on sunday night when somebody knocked on the door. Alex got up and answered it but there was nobody there, just a thing of cookies with a note taped to the top of it. The note below reads....
"Emily-
The relief society has really missed you the last couple of sundays. We thought we'd let you know we'd really like to see you. If you would like to talk to any of us (RS presidency) about anything we are always happy to chat!! I understand we have church very early in the morning, but it really is such a blessing for you when you come EVERY sunday. Maybe a friendly Sunday morning wake-up call would help. We are always willing to help in whatever way we can. Please call us and we hope to see you soon.
Love always, the RS presidency!"
We were blown away, everyone was dying laughing because we thought, holy crap I really am the "inactive sister" in the ward. I was just happy to have cookies and we all thought that the note was hilarious. When everyone was leaving at the end of the night one of the couples, kate and tyler (who came to play games "late") let us know that it was actually them who left the cookies haha, it was pretty much the best joke ever because lets be honest, we wouldn't put it past any relief society to write that note!!!!

PS I am happy to report to all that I am now back in action and officially ACTIVE!!!
(but cookies are still welcome at my front door...)
