Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family.

Yeseterday- I wouldn't say that yesterday was a terrible day and I am in a horrible mood, but it wasn't really all that great either. Different trials are going on in my life and I am trying to stay happy through them. There are also the trials that I thought were berried and gone, but are now, not just surfacing, but are completely up and dancing around in the front of my mind.

In addition to all of that, I was reading my friends blog earlier today, and she was telling her story about how her fiancé purposed to her and how it hurt so much while he was gone (mission). As I was reading this I was happy for her, but I also felt sick and anxious. While I was bummed out, and trying to get focused again I came across her next post, and I decided how I wanted to react to the hard things and trials in my life now!

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY LIFE RIGHT NOW!!!

-not in order-


Mom and Dad: They are always awesome but these last few months they have really helped me out.

Siblings: Even though the family is as opinionated as they come I know that they all have my best interest at heart. I got pretty Lucky with the family I was given, and I love them.

Friends: I have some pretty AWESOME friends! I don't get to see all of them, but they are great friends all the same.

School: I absolutely love my major. I will hopefully be getting my first 4.0 in college this semester. There are some classes that really don't apply to what I want to be doing, but I still really enjoy them.

Photography: I have already learned so much in the last three months. It makes me excited to see where it will go.

Provo: Even though I hated the idea of living in Provo again. I have really enjoyed being close the family I have down here. I have also met a lot of great people here.

My opinion is that we are not that opinionated. :)

:( I didn't realize you were so bummed out! If you want to talk to anyone about it feel free to come hang out with us sometime! You can even tell us to leave the opinions out of it and we'll just listen. ;)

Good for you Lu. I had to do the same thing when we lived in Mexico. It helped. I made a list of all the things I would miss when I left. I would add to my list as I was introduced to new things that I liked.
Trials are always going to be in your life, but when you take them as well as you do - they will never be so big.
Opinions - :) You know, when you call and tell me how things aren't going right, I feel strangely obligated to share with you all my knowledge and wisdom. ;) If I don't, it's like I am shirking my sisterly responsibilities. I'll try to remember to listen unless you specifically ASK. I LOVE YOU
