The Bigger Picture.


Stupid pity party. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed that I forget the big picture.
I won't be perfect at my partner's job, but I'll do my best.
My talk will be the best that I can share because it'll be from the heart.
I will look forward to meeting the ward members after church and enjoy a nice little snack. This will help Levi and I make more friends. 
Everything will be accomplished and it'll all be ok. 
Breathe, Ehu...just breathe.

Overload.

Work has been overwhelming lately. Seriously, I've been in overdrive this week trying to learn my partner's desk before she leaves for vacation. I'm not gonna lie, I'm mentally exhausted by the time I get home. Everything looks similar and my notes don't quite help at times. Honestly, I hope next week goes my like a blink of an eye. I'm just so mentally done and I've still got two more days of training. Seriously, I'm so spent I just want to scream. I miss just working my desk and processing court judgements.

Not to mention that both Levi and I were asked last Sunday to give a talk, this Sunday. Honestly, I'm not too pleased about that. He was asked first while I was still in my Relief Society class. I probably would have bargained to speak at a near future date. We've been asked to speak on the Priesthood; something he just received two weeks ago. I feel like it's just a bit early to be giving a talk so soon.  But wait, there's more....
And I keep forgetting that Relief Society was asked to host the ward's first Linger Longer. My RS President asked the presidency to make a main dish that can feed a whole family. Hello crock pot meal...

I keep thinking, when will I have the time to accomplish all of this?? Oh yeah, and we've gotta do laundry too, aside from me working overtime this Saturday to prepare me for next week. Have I mentioned that Levi now works on Saturdays? I'm learning to adjust to it because I miss him terribly as I'm alone most of the day. Our adventure day has dwindled down to grocery shopping, dinner & sleep. Bummer.
I'm just venting. I just need to learn to decompress...or yell loudly into a pillow. Sorry I'm in a sour mood, my plate's a little to full at the moment. I just remembered another thing, I need to figure out my parents' insurance before we start to move them this next month. 


(But I'd bring Levi, for sure! He's cute, such a good driver and we like the same road trip snacks.)

Sunday & Father's Day.

There's so much I want to blog about but it's late and I don't want to pull out my laptop. Plus it's 12:50am on a work night....eek!
Today we were asked to speak in church. Next Sunday: What the Priesthood means in our lives.
As for the rest of our day:

I love this man! I enjoy the time I get to spend with him. 
Sorry so short, my mind is consumed with my talk. Nervous, excited, anxious and happy! Good luck to us!

Sunday: Setting Apart & Sitting Together.

Today was a very good day for us.
My sweetheart was ordained to the Priesthood. I was very fortunate to spend some time in Priesthood quorum today. I appreciate the good brethren who made me feel very welcomed. I'm not gonna lie, being the only soprano in a room full of bass and tenors, was a tiny bit intimidating but I think I sang a little bit louder with a lot more enthusiasm. I couldn't help it, it was one of my favorite hymns, Have I Done Any Good? Plus, I loved sitting next to him in Priesthood. It was nice seeing him in this element.
I appreciate the words of our good Bishop, during Levi's ordination. I am so grateful to have a home filled with the Priesthood, again. I think this will make my Dad happy, as well. The Bishop also mentioned having Family Home Evening, which makes me happy. I think this will start a good tradition for our family and our future children. 
After Levi's ordination, the Bishop asked if I was ever set apart for my Relief Society Secretary. Since I hadn't been, we pulled Levi in and we were able to be together for that. I'm glad because I was so happy to have him there with me. Two things that stood out was when the Bishop said, "You are admired by all" and then made reference to my organizational skills. I was taken back by the "admired" comment because I'm still getting to know the sisters (women) at church so how could that be? Maybe some admire different qualities about me? I don't know exactly but it made me happy because I know Heavenly Father knows me and that matters a lot to me.
I've been so blessed. I love having Levi with me. He's so good at church. Sometimes, a lot of times, I marvel at how he just "gets it"! Today's Sunday School lesson was on repentance and one of his answers on the purpose of repentance was so deep and eloquent it just made me wonder how I got so lucky to have someone who is just so dang good!
Since today is now our only day off together, I truly appreciate all the time I was able to spend with him. He's my very best friend and I love him with all my heart.

Friday, I'm in love!


*Today is Friday and I'm ready for the weekend.

*Life is good and there's really no complaints except for the adulting part of it. Dang laundry.

*I'm thankful I don't work tomorrow. I love the idea of catching up with work but man, it'll be nice to sleep in. 

* Levi is over the moon about his new job that he started this week. I love how happy he is when he gets home and all his exciting stories he shares from his day. I'm so happy he's happy. 

* I'm enjoying my newish calling as Relief Society Secretary. It's different not being in charge but that's way cool with me. I'm getting to know more of the sisters which I love. They're so kind and sweet. I taught Relief Society about 3 weeks ago and I was nervous and excited to do so! 
Good times!

I'll blog more later... Life is good!

Come, follow me.

My sweetheart was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this past Saturday on May 28. Honestly, it feels surreal and normal, if that makes any sense. It feels normal because of all the many Sundays he's attended church with me but surreal you actually be two active, covenant-making members of the church. He's the "Brother B" to my "Sister B", we're now, "Brother & Sister B"!! That trips me out in a very happy way! I love having him in church with me. I love hearing him pray.
I love the way he just "gets" stuff. I have so much more I want to say, but since it's late, I'll have to post later. 
Right now, I can't adequately express everything I'm feeling and part of me is just trying to wrap my head around this beautiful blessing. I love it!!

TLC.

Tonight, I am so grateful for my sweetheart.  I love the way he is always so tender with me, especially when I fall ill. 
I don't know what happened this afternoon, but man, I had the worse stomach cramps. It wasn't like the usual stomach ache, there was such a bad throbbing pain. I started to go over my day and think of what I could have eaten.   Ugh, it was definitely an evening I'd rather forget.  It was rough. No one likes to see their lunch in reverse. I hate throwing up, which always makes me HOPE I don't get morning sickness.
I'm just so grateful for the tender way he takes care of me. He's just so attentive. Although I was asleep on and off for the past 5 hours, he would check on me and see if I needed anything. 
I'm grateful for the wonderful man that he is. For the past month, as we've been praying together before bed each night, I've felt a much closer bond with him. I've truly loved it. I love the way we pray for each other and express our gratitude for our blessings, most especially for the blessing of each other. He is my heart and my better 2/3rds.
