has it really been THAT long? (sigh.) Yes, it has. Excuse? Hmmm... Busy life? nope. Lack of things to "blog" about? (like that has EVER been an issue).
Why did I decide to post today? It just feels like it's time.
So, what's the happs? (I can hear you asking me that right now). Well, I don't know if you know this, but I started working for my dad's company. Boy, it is a sweet deal. I got a RAD computer (love life), get to do it at home (in the comfort of my pajamas), and it is just a really great thing in my life. The plan is to become a pro right now and then when the baby comes, Ill stop completely at the store and do this (and melimba)... oh, and raise a baby.
So, this is me, on the new computer. Bloggin' away. I could get used to this for a while.
Aaron is at school. I just finished bringing Sweet Baby Wood's stuff into her room (for she truly is a sweet gal). oh! Didn't you know? I just went up to Utah for a week. It just so happened that my darling friends threw a BEAUTIFUL BABY SHOWER for me! It was so great! And then some other darling friends had a get together in honor of Groundhog's Day/Baby Shower/Birthday Bashes/Sewing Goodness. That was so great too!
SO MuCh LoVe!!! Can you feel it? I can. Totally feelin' it. A Billion Thanks to all involved.
I don't have pictures here to post, those will come soon. (If we can all twist Becca or Lizzy's arm to email them to me). Get excited, because I am.
So, the only picture I will post for the time being is this one.
Most of you, being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recognize this man. But, some of you, my other gal pals, may not. This is President Hinckley, the former prophet of our church. He recently passed away. Since I was in Utah and my sister has "special" privileges, we were able to attend the funeral service at the huge Conference Center in Salt Lake City.
I have had many emotions this past week. It is an ending of an era in the church and this man did so much good, not only for the church, but for the world. I'm not going to say a lot, other than I loved this man. He was a living and breathing example of what I picture Jesus Christ to be. His attitude, his humor, his character and just the life he lived.
I am so grateful for the chance I had to attend his funeral and hear the beautiful music and pay tribute to such a wonderful man. It was a memory I hope to never forget. You know when you leave somewhere having such a resolve to be better? That is what happened. Love that. I love having those reminders.
My little sister was talking about President Hinckley and she said what she appreciated most about him, was that he was constantly reminding us of our Heavenly Father's love for us. Of all the good things he could tell us, he always was reminding us how much we are loved. How great is that?
Well, I don't know how to really end this post. :) Just know how glad I am to be here. I'm so glad I'm here. Glad you are my friends. Glad for lots of things.
