Thoughts

Disclaimer: Feel free to bypass this post. :) Just some thoughts of mine lately.

I don't have much time tonight to write but I want to. Basically, I feel like lately I've been having "journal" withdrawls. Perhaps I should start one again. I miss writing. I already have 8 journals...it's been one of my passions since I was young...it's what started my love for writing. Unfortunately, it went by the wayside after I got married and had Jace.

Last weekend was amazing with General Conference. I thought the talks were incredible and of course, I felt like they were specifically for me. One of my favorite ones was Joseph B. Wirthlin. For those of you that know me well, I sometimes tend to take life too seriously. It was a great reminder to ENJOY life and LAUGH and find HUMOR in the things around you. Even though it wasn't this amazing spiritual insight, I felt the spirit and the love through his words. Anyways, it was all great and made for a very special weekend. Jace even watched some and played some conference games, which didn't last long, but I was proud of him.

I've been feeling very grateful lately for our blessings because it's been a hard couple weeks but I love having this perspective of "all things will work together for your good" Sometimes it doesn't feel like it, but I know it will. Heath's been swamped with school, Jace has decided to give up his naps and I'm enduring the last weeks of this pregnancy. Besides feeling tired, getting little sleep, some back aches and occassional stabs to my ribs, everything is good! I can't wait to meet our new little guy!

Now, for Colorado, we've had some chilly days and nights lately. In fact, we're suppossed to have SNOW tonight...just flurries...but nonetheless, snow. We'll see. The trees and fall colors are so vibrant right now and remind me of my days in Provo. I've quickly remembered why I love SEASONS. Yesterday, while driving around, I just felt an overwhelming gratitude for the beauty around me. There's just this feeling in the air, and not just a chill. So, I suppose I should close now. Although, with so much going on in my head, I could continue for a while.

Have a happy week. :)

I think you and I were meant to have met. :) Loved the post and I have to tell you about 4 weeks ago I was feeling really funky. I wanted to blog about it but I kept telling myself that I didn't want to blog about those things. Then i remembered how long it'd been since I wrote in my journal. So I just opened up a blank document and started typing. About an hour later I could not explain how much better I felt. A blog is great for recording things and keeping people updated on your life but a journal, at least for me, can't be replaced. Don't hesitate to call if you need ANYTHING, especially during these last weeks of pregnancy. And hey, whenever your tired and drained look in the mirror. At least you still look hot!:)

I too was once very devoted at writing in my journal and then I got married. Rather than writing, I now talk Aaron's ear off. However, I still have those moments where I want to sit down and write in my journal. The problem now is which journal?? Since I've started at least 3 of them in the last 10 years I've been married! Hope these weeks pass quickly for you Stac!

Stace -I love you! It is so good to hear your thoughts. I wish I was there 'for happy' or 'for sad' in colorado (remember the tape i made?). Journaling has got me through very rough times. You are a beautiful writer - keep up on your personal journal that is just for you. I miss you so much. NOV 11th!!! CHRISTMAS!!! miss you.
