I am grateful because I am seeing my sister-in-law tonight and I really need some family time right now and she is here. Tender mercies.

I am grateful because my roommates, who are basically strangers, tell me I am strong and I will make it through today and hug me even though they might feel awkward but they can see I need it.

I am grateful for Broomhiggins, so grateful for her.

I am grateful for my family, each member of them. LJ, who skipped breakfast yesterday morning because he heard I was sad and felt very sad too, Joseph who if he were here would quote Brian Regan and I would probably pee my pants and he would just hug me. Squeaks, who can feel my pain from far away, but still be bubbly and gush about her new iphone 4 to me. Elyse, who calls her facebook boyfriend to take care of me because she can’t, because she moved and feels guilty that she can’t hold me herself, but I’m not mad because she is growing up and I am so proud of her. Rodney, because he thinks I’m a ‘catch’ and haven’t even ‘hit my prime’, and his lovely wife that I will see tonight.  Then my parents who think I am wonderful because I am a Utah resident.

I am grateful that I can walk around Provo at 11 o’clock at night and talk to my Father in Heaven and he can give me peace I didn’t think was possible.

I am most grateful for Christ, because he has allowed me to still cry, while taking so much of my burden and filling me with comfort in a way that I could never doubt him or who he is, or what he has done for me.

I am so blessed and sometimes I just need a little perspective and to tell myself “I CAN DO HARD THINGS”

Lady Cop

My career path is pretty much set. I want to be a second grade teacher. I have 5 semesters left of school and one of student teaching and then I will be out there, on my own with my own class. I am so excited, I can barely wait! For the most part all other occupations are dead to me now that I have made my decision. There is one career though, that still intrigues me. Women law enforcement. Not your everyday chick police officer’s but the gals that are associated with the FBI or any women that carries a gun and a badge. In the past week I have seen TWO of these women. Am I making the wrong career decision or is it just the 24 talking.

For now I will just have to live vicariously through Renee Walker. Maybe a season of 24 is in order for the weekend.

Summers Over?

I feel like I blinked and summer is ending. Growing up and summer, don’t mix. Other than the dry Utah heat, I would have never guessed it was summer. With working full time and living in Utah, the feeling of summer did not come for me this year. The few trips I did take were memorable so I can’t complain.

August has been good to me though PKH comes home in TWO days and next week I am going to DC for my favorite couple Jeff and Lars’s wedding and then school will be back in session!

One thing I have learned is that I don’t need summer to enjoy life I just need certain things likeeeeee:

Henri, our little munchkin.

emd. love her to death, am gonna miss her this coming year

FSI and Mexico trip.

I am glad I stayed in Utah and got my residency for school, but all I can say is I'm already dreaming of having a real summer next year in Texas. :)
