Life's little lessons

As of today between vacation, family, and a funeral I haven't been to church in 3 weeks, I haven't participated in YW, and I've barely felt the spirit.

Tonight Michael and I went to the dumbest movie I have ever seen. Ever. I couldn't believe that grown adults were laughing at the smut on the screen. Even more so I couldn't believe as a grown adult I couldn't get up and leave. It didn't matter how embarrassed or offended I was, I couldn't leave. As we drove home and made a detour to 7eleven all I could think about is how I feel.

I feel empty and alone.

With these feelings comes feelings of disappointment and depression.

Life is not anywhere near perfect with the gospel and the spirit. At least, though, I feel whole. At least through the hard times and low moments I feel hope and love. I don't ever want to be this far away from the gospel ever again. I don't want to feel alone and empty. I want those feelings of hope back.

I can't wait to go to church on Sunday. It will be so refreshing.

What a lesson I've learned.

Little Update

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I posted and I really need a good excuse to distract me from cleaning my house.

So, here is a nice little update on my life.

My mom and her husband came down for my birthday and we got to go to the temple for the first time together.

For the 4th of July Michael and I went to La Jolla cove to watch the fireworks with my dad.

We drove to Idaho last week to visit family. Roxy got a little restless on the way.

This sweet little girl learned how to use the camera on my phone and took about 100 pictures. She snuck in some awesome photos.

See, look how cute that is?

I finished my niece's quilt.

On our way back home we got a little lost in a town that I didn't think you could get lost in. But the dog enjoyed it.

Not even a week later my sister's flew in so we could go to my Oma's funeral.

I even managed to get a picture that is so rare I can't even begin to explain it.
Overall I've been having a pretty good time.
