Torn

I'm lamenting tonight. Just be forewarned. Adam and I are leaving Southern Utah. We have been told that it's time for a new adventure. So we move to the frozen north. I was so excited to move here, and miss winter (well mostly), and now I feel like Laman. "Fine, I'll do it, but I won't do it willingly." I should be grateful, that's how I felt when I went on a mission....I didn't want to go, but I loved it so much. Maybe something truly wonderful will happen who knows. But, I hate leaving my family. I feel like I miss so much. Every time I turn around my nieces and nephews are pulling some new trick, and getting older. I don't even get to stay for Halloween :(. But I will go and do. On the plus side, I have some incredible friends up in Provo, and I miss them like crazy...so I'm excited to see them again! There are lots of new adventrues to be had, and I will get a white Christmas.

Looking on the bright side of life, I have an amazing husband. I've been having kind of a rough time with some things and my Adam was very aware of this (sorry honey) and he spent the night placing little postit notes all over the house for me to find, saying things like "Christy is the smartest ever" or "Christy is breatakingly beautiful." Thinking of that all day made me smile, and things seemed to go a little bit better. Thank you Adam. You are wonderful.

A third thought. I am so grateful for the military service men and women. There is a lot of ugly in the world, and we live in a dangerous time. These wonderful men and women are out there spending their lives to protect our right to protest what they are doing. So...troops, I salute you and thank you. I will do what I can to support you!



And now....RANDOM PICTURE TIME!!! Since I missed so much in photos, I'm going to just post a couple each time, and tell everyone about them. soo....


This is my nephew Gager, at our Grandpa's 81st birthday (happy birthday Grandpa!) Our Aunt Colleene had her Chihuahua there and all the kids loved it! (a little too much prolly) But I got this really cute picture of him :)

Dear P,
The Lord knows what's best. You will be blessed. Look at all of the WONDERFUL people you met on your mission!

Be like Paul (in the NT), be content where ever you are. (Look it up :)

If we never left our comfort zone, we'd never grow...and you've got a great companion to complete your mission with!

SO, YOU ARE COMING BACK TO PLAY? DID YOU HEAR DAREN AND I ARE ENGAGED? YOU CAN BE HERE FOR THAT FUN. I KNOW THE AGONY OF LEAVING FAMILY, BUT AS EVERYONE SAYS...SOMETIMES LIFE LETS YOU GROW IN WAYS YOU DONT WANT TO. I LOVE YOU GUYS!
