I love my mother. She is the greatest thing in my life. I have no idea what I would do or where I would be if she was not the amazing lady that she is. I love her sense of wonder and the way she enjoys discovering new things. I loved being home when she’d take us all around London, showing us things that she loves. I love how she shows us her love for us and for the Lord. Her testimony is so strong, and just by talking with her, I can see that. I love her sense of hard work and service. I know these are things that I can incorporate into my own life. I love that she is so focused and driven. When she has a goal, she follows through. She always does her morning exercise and stretches. She always does her scripture study. She is truly an amazing woman. She is the inspiration for me when I think about being a mother.
So, thank you mom. Thank you for everything.
I am so thankful for my Savior. on this day, i remember the things he did for me- how he died and suffered for me.
what a great friend and brother!
so, i was having a really rotten, no good past few days. school is so close to being over, i think it’s mostly just end of the semester stress… and the cold [it was basically snowing on friday!]
but i have been so blessed this week. here’s how:
. like i said, semester almost over
. an awesome, selfless boyfriend who let’s me rant, complain, etc. and knows the tease : sympathize ratio perfectly. he also just holds me and lets me be. remember that scene in waitress (around 1:20)? yeah, that’s how it was for me, these past couple of days.
. family who lets me rant and complain [especially my mother, who just had a birthday!]
. essie nail polish. this is by far the brightest color i’ve had since i was like 14… but i like it. it makes me happy (thanks to boy for helping me pick it out)- also their top coat “no chip” works really well. just sayin.
. running/ pilates: these endorphins were definitely needed
. my awesome classmates who listened to me rant
. pandora: well picked songs, as always [new amsterdams, nicole reynolds, angus & julia stone, etc.]
. Mosiah 15
. rain boots
. sweet potato fries and burgers; pizza and lemonade
. divine comedy
