I've been wanting to blog for awhile now because it's been so long! I miss writing. I just haven't had all that much to say. My life has been an amazingly beautiful crazy story over the last few months. I finished spring semester with a 3.8, fell in the love with the kids, and the work, in the resource room at Diaz ES, my best friend got her mission call to the Philippians, we had a tragedy in the family but we were able to come together to support & love those who were hurting the most, my bishop and his counselors are amazing and make you feel like you're on top of the world, I
ran walked a 5K and had a cousin and his wife get baptized. I love my life! I just finished a month of IV's and a round of steroids, and feel fabulous! I've started a workout routine to get my lungs function in the 50's & hopefully staying there longer than 2 or 3 months at a time. I decided that when or if the time comes I need a transplant I want to know I did ALL I could in my power to keep the lungs God gave me strong & healthy for as long as possible. So I set aside my laziness, and hate of working out, and got off my butt. I may HATE the summer heat, but I love how much healthier I am this time of the year, and I love the warm nights I get to spend with some of my favorite people!
The joy I feel in my heart is unexplainable. When we take the time in our daily life to see the good in the world around us, and surround ourselves with beautiful loving souls you can't help but smile! Don't get me wrong these last few months haven't all been happy smiling breezy easy days. I'm human, you're human, we have bad days, we cry, we make mistakes, we get overwhelmed and frustrated, we let ourselves down and hope to never let those close to us down. However, the only way to rise above the bad and darkness is to draw nearer to God, find the beauty around us and surround ourselves with amazing people. That has been my "mantra" over these last few months in life.
I'm hoping to have more time to blog some of my thoughts now that it's summer time and I have more free time with school out. However, I may be out living my amazingly beautiful crazy life instead of sitting at a computer. Until next time: smile, know you are loved and find the little specks of light in this crazy sometimes dark world.
With lots of Love,
