two week check up

I just re-read my goals for this month. Some are going pretty well, some I have failed miserably at (I blame 4 feet of snow and the bachelor) BUT I am not going to give up! I will pick up where I left off... or never started and keep moving forward. The two I am going to focus on the most are

reading my scriptures daily
living in the moment

I didn't share my testimony on Sunday so I would like to share it now with you.

I love my heavenly father and really feel like I am his daughter. I feel it strongest when I am living the commandments and reading my scriptures, right now I feel like I have been so lost and alone but it is not from his end, but from mine. I am grateful to know that. To know that I am not alone and that everyday I can try again, that he loves me and forgives me. I am grateful for Ben and the wide array of crap I put him through. I know that he loves me supports me and thinks I am beautiful even when I don't. And for my girls that forgive me in an instant my short comings and craziness. I am so honored to be their mother and to be the reason their faces light up with smiles. I know the Church of Jesus Christ to be God's completed church on the earth and I thank my parents for raising me in it. I love this gospel and all that it teaches me.

In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

*please forgive the horrible punctuation and lack of commas. Sentence structure is not my forte and if this really bothered you, you probably wouldn't be reading my blog in the first place :).

Beautiful. You are so amazing, I just can't get over it. Love you.

I wish you could have borne that testimony in church because it was beautiful and perfect. Also, because I would have loved to hear you say "crap" from the pulpit.

Rileigh, I am grateful that Father in Heaven's plan allows the joy that we receive from our children to become deeper, richer, and more satisfying with time. For all the joy that you gave us 20 years ago, and that you get from your little ladies now, 20 years from now, when your girls bear testimonies like yours, and live the way you live, you'll know the joy that you've given me just now. It really does get better with time. Amazing and even unimaginable to contemplate isn't it? Thank you. Love, Dad
