a little vent.

When it rains it pours for sure.
The whole unexpected session this morning happened which is extra bad because I suffer from anxiety and it won't go away. Then Chris told me he won't be home until tomorrow. I'm sleepy but I have deadlines, Blackbird came on pandora and it got me thinking about how Gray is 2 1/2 now and the same age as Aus... and I REALLY don't want to go there right now. I just feel blah, the kitchen and family room are a disaster, etc, etc, etc. Okay now my long vent is over. Time to get my attitude of gratitude back on...

Chris has me SO excited!  In the last week he has read the whole Gospel principles book, Joseph Smith History, The Articles of Faith, and right now he's reading some Priesthood manual.  Pretty awesome, huh?  He said he wants to start coming to church with me more and I guess he's been praying as well.  Do you know what this could mean???  This is the BEST news ever!  Even if he doesn't join, he is laying down a foundation right now and opening himself up to his own spiritual experiences!  I'm so excited!  I hope God will fill his heart with the spirit!  I'm so excited that the possibility of us getting married in the temple is now becoming more hopeful!!  I better start saving!!!  EEEK! 
I LOVE the gospel!

My friend, Maggie said the sweetest thing to me today and I just HAD to share!  She said that sometimes she looks at older pictures of me and she can just see how much brighter I am now, and that she can just tell how much I've changed just by looking at me.  She said my eyes just have more light now.  Made my day!!

The Field

It's crazy how much this really does feel like a deployment! It's only been a couple days and when we get the chance to talk on the phone, it just feel like its real! Also I didn't realize how dependent and attached Claire is to me until now. I think I've just babied her so much and now if I'm not holding her AND giving her all my attention she gets MAD. It's not good. :(

Joseph Smith History

I think Joseph Smith History is so interesting. I had to read it for my lesson tomorrow and I think all people should read it, member or not (its short). I just love it and the same things that were going on back then are going on today.

Anyway I'm glad I read it. I had heard the vision story before, never took the time to read it.
