It has been a long time since I've had anything to write. Ironically, I still don't really have anything to write, I'm just beyond bored and I can't fall asleep. Ah well.
As the three of you who read this have no doubt noticed, I didn't get my list done before my birthday. Do I care? Not one bit! I'll just roll some of them over to the next list that I make! Haha. Life threw me so many curve balls this last year. It was ridiculous. I would be lying if I said that I loved every minute of it but the 'ups' certainly made up for the 'downs.' Being 25 was the most amazing year of my life. It would take me days to write why... it was just the best. ;)
I am so blessed in so many different ways. I have had such a marvelous example of true love and companionship in my parents. Life hasn't been easy and it's still not easy but my mom and dad have always done an amazing job of showing me how to love and support your spouse. I have some great examples in my brothers and sisters, too. They each have their own trials and they're dealing with them the best they know how. Each of them has taught me so much about life in their own unique way.
I have wonderful friends who make me feel loved and missed. I have people that are there when I need them. A listening ear when I need to vent and a joke when I need to smile. It's nice to have a few good, true friends in your life. I definitely have my fair share! <3 Shout out to Jake, Kati, Angela, Jessie, and Kendal.
I have also been blessed with the most amazing boyfriend a girl could ever hope for. (Seriously. Girls, be jealous. Haha!) He treats me like a princess and I have never felt more amazing. He's completely wonderful, funny, sexy, and smart. Basically, he's golden. Thank you, Kyle. <3
I am also lucky enough to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I don't know what I would do without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and my testimony in it and my knowledge and understanding of our Savior, Jesus Christ and the Atonement. General Conference was mind-blowing a couple of weeks ago. I have never been more inspired! My favorite talk was by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, as always. He was speaking directly to me. Tender mercy of the Lord, my friends. Tender mercy indeed.
I am grateful to be alive every day, even the crappy ones... mostly. I'm enjoying growing older. The older I get, the more fun life seems to get. Wow. Life is good.
Welp, I should try to get some sleep... too bad I'm still not tired. I guess I could come up with a list of 26 before 27... hmmmm. Maybe another day. ;)
Remember to keep smiling...
