Not much to share yet

So I don't have any new news yet. . . I've been interviewing and stuff but no jobs yet. A lot of things are up in the air. It's very annoying. But I'm way happy for it to be the holidays. It's so much more fun with snow all around.
I got to go to the game on Saturday! I really thought that the Y had it. OH man that was so much fun. Not so much fun to watch the Utes play like crap. But 10-2 is pretty dang good. I was begining to think I was bad luck. . . You can imagine my relief when I realized I wasn't.

On Thanksgiving I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the people in my life. I have realized how blessed I am to have so many wonderful people in my life. I am so grateful for my family. And also to be surrounded by so many woderful friends. I miss my 'family' in Texas so much but it's been wonderful to be home and see how loved I am here as well. I'm most grateful for family and friends this year. There are very few things that will last beyond the veil. Our relationship with others is truly what pulls us through life, and also what I believe is most important to our Father and Savior. " . . . the second is like unto it. To love they neighbor as thyself." I'm convinced that we all love christmas time so much because the spirit of our Savior is more abundant. I pray that we may all have a safe and wonderful holiday season and always show love to our brothers and sisters.

Making the most of our time

So I've been thinking a lot lately about this life and now what I get to do with it. There are so many unknowns. And each day we are faced with things that we must do. 1. go to work 2. do the dishes, 3. take out the garbage 4. buy food 5. make food 6. clean the house . . . the list goes on. Each day we must get things done. But what happened to the list that matters?
a. make someone smile. b. enjoy the beauty around us c. find one more thing you can do to make someone else's life that much easier d. prayer . . . This list is eternal. Because the fruits of this list are those that will last forever.
This is what has been most difficult about being home. I miss only having to worry about the second set of 'things to get done today' and as the first list is important and must be accomplished, oh how I long for the day when we get to 'rest from all our troubles and all our cares' and be in the presence of our Father and Savior once more.
As you can see my postings are a bit different than before, but these are the things that are on my mind. And even though it has been a rough transition for me I hope never to lose sight of the things that really matter from day to day.
I hope you all have a great day today and if it's not a good day, do something to make it so. (something for someone else almost always does the trick.)
