the anti blog


so i am not in the mood to post much about anything.
not even the mundane.
or the routine.
but i caught myself in the quiet of the evening,
counting my blessings.
for the many things i possess.
and the love i have for my family.
and my health.
and the knowledge that i am a precious daughter of God.
and the gospel.
and the fundamental principles it has taught me.
and for the fact that i come from a long line of good people.
people with integrity and a basic goodness.
and i am glad for that.
i am glad because i would not be the person i am today without those precious things in my life.
so heres to a wonderful existence.
and a bright future.
full of peace and happiness.
and even a little joy.

my wings may be damp, but theyre drying off.

I had a little bit of those feelings yesterday - a reflection on all of my blessings, especially after the tragedy that happened here in our ward yesterday afternoon. Gave me a bit of perspective on things that matter most.
