Valentines Day

Seeing how this is a pretty rough day for me being Valentines day and all, I just wanted to say a few things.

One being about Tyson Teague. To my best friend who passed away ten years ago, and his funeral was on February 14th. I know that he's watching over all of us kids from Curtis Elementary though, laughing at us, and keeping our spirits up. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him. It's probably just because I don't want to forget anything. Even though I was only 10 years old when he died, I still remember how I felt, and know that he was really my best friend. We played every day together, and we both had glasses and got made fun of for it. Such great memories with him

Another thought.
Best Valentines Day ever. I made a special effort to make other people's days because I just don't like the holiday, and I did a good job! I got to help my professor get stuff out of her car, because she just had hip surgery, and I think I have gotten some brownies points! Just kidding, and then I went to the store, and got a few things for the girls, and it just made me happy to pick stuff out for them. I love getting things for other people! It's a great feeling knowing that you made someone elses day, and that makes my day! I caught up with my friend Jordan, and he painted my toes! He did a great job too lol.  And he left me a note!Then I just had a good day, went to work, and got to listen to love music all night long, and listen to people feel sorry for me that I'm not in a relationship, and dont have a boyfriend. blahblah blah. I wanted to tell them all to go away and keep to their own love life. Haha But I had to stay later than I wanted too which I didn't like, because I had a ton of homework to do! I was texting people back on my way back to my car, and what do you know. My car was heart attacked! By none other than CONNIE LOO!!! I love her! She is the best. It just made my day! And then I went to the library with Courtney and Kyle! Got so much done. Something has changed about my focus though. I lack focus when I'm doing homework! Ha! I need to work on that.

Then I got home, read my scriptures, and came across a scripture in 1 Nephi 1:20
::: But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender cmercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of ddeliverance.

I love this, because the tender mercies are those little things that we see the hand of the Lord in our life, and appreciation for blessings. When you recognize them, you become stronger. I know that's true, because as I have done this, I have learned to recognize the little things more, and I have a spirit of gratitude with me at all time. It's an incredible miracle.

Another thought from the fireside I went to on Sunday on coincidence. Many times the world blames coincidence on science, or other things. When in fact many times coincidence is a way for God to let us know that he is involved in our lives. I love that. 

I was talking to my friend Kody about all the good things that have been going on in my life lately, and I made a comment like this, "The Lord loves me!" and Kody responded with, "No you love the Lord." It struck me. He's right. When you put the Lord first you are blessed. End of story.

I know all of this may get old, but it really is the little things. When I die, on my tombstone I want to be known for loving the little things, but also for doing those little things. 

Okay that's all for now.

Just remember someone loves you. <3
