Day 106: Love is Spelled T-I-M-E

Have I mentioned lately just how much I love and APPRECIATE my husband?  It is not always easy for me to notice during these busy years of study, but our relationship means everything to him.  I needed some time with him today to just visit.  So we went for a little walk.  Well, our half hour walk turned into an hour plus conversation when we got home.  We had time to reflect on Us:  what our goals are, what we are both doing to be good people/companions, what we hope to accomplish individually and as a couple, and whatever else came up.  He sacrificed a lot of his study time to be with me.  I know that giving up study time was not exactly easy and that this will have put an extra burden on him, but knowing that he did it because he loves me is almost more than I can stand. :)  Thank you, Honey!  I love you so!
**Note to self:  Read this often but especially around exams. :)

Ha ha:
I have an 80-years-young female black friend who attends the same church as I do.  Her claim to fame is her "big mouth".  She knows it can get her in trouble, but it often just makes people laugh.  Today she shared a real gem.
The topic in Gospel Principles was "Faith in Jesus Christ".  The teacher asked her to share her story of faith when she joined the church.  She said that she's a people-watcher and for her, after observing the love and friendship of people at church, she knew she was in the right place.  She saw the love of Jesus Christ in the members.  "Everyone just be cons'ly lovin' on every one else.  There's so much love!  It's like a big love orgy up in here!"
Um....I don't know that that's the answer the teacher was looking for, but I'm sure the Lord had just as good a good laugh as the rest of us.  It was said in innocence after all.  Ha ha ha!


  1. Hey, this is kalie. My husband and I have been struggling w/ infertility for about a year in a half. I found your blog on LDS services while doing a little research. Its nice to know that there are people out there who have gone through the same emotional rollercoster! Your blog has helped me tremendously. I hope everything works out for you and you get a baby soon. Adoption is definitly something I consider but we are going to try a few more things first.

  2. I love this post! The church story was hilarious, and it's so nice to listen to a woman appreciate her hardworking husband. :) I've started keeping a daily journal of things I appreciate about my husband and it has been so fun! The more I write, the more I notice. I love being in love with my husband. :) Thanks for sharing so much on your blog. It's really inspiring.

  3. oh my. Thats was too funny... I seriously was laughing so hard. That class was pretty ridiculously hilarious ("Steve Jobs: One Life"). Thanks again for being so welcoming to the friend I brought to church :) I know she greatly appreciated your "love orgy".
