and it came to pass that while,
Here is a shot of the house from the other side. That window up on the top towards the back of the house was the window to the bedroom I slept in.
I loved my days in college. I may not have done well academically, but I did learn a lot about myself, about life, and the things that I am here to accomplish. I really gained my testimony while I was at Ricks - I always kind of just "KNEW" that it was right and while I was there I had it confirmed and haven't thought twice about the truthfulness of this gospel since then. This life seems to hand us difficult blows, but I firmly believe that if we keep faithful and believe that our Heavenly Father knows what is best for us, that all things will work out in the end. It's hard to go through those trials while in the midst of them, but all the experience that you gain from it, and the insights that you pull from it will help us to become stronger people. I often wrote in my journal some cheesy lines like " when will my prince charming come to rescue me?" and well I wanted things to happen sooner than they did, but as I was patient and enduring what I thought was "unbearable" -- my Prince entered my life and am I ever thankful that we were brought together. Because as my husband and I have often talked about it, no one could put up with my "crap" as much he does, and no one would want to put up with the way he is as well as I do. We have a LOVE that binds us together and we've worked through some rough spots and have come out on top. These emotions that we go through, don't make life easier really, but they do make it feel so much better when they do go the right ways. So I'm glad that my husband loves me, and often reassures me of that when I start to feel down about life in general. He really does complete me, and I feel lost when we have to be apart for very long. I sit back these days and feel really blessed to know that we are HAPPY!! I have siblings that are having rough times in life because of choices that they've made and ... well I just hope that someday that they can have what my husband and I have. A life full of Happiness. ( of course, it isn't that way all the time, because kids make life difficult, bills make life depressing sometimes, and illness affects us, but on the whole we are HAPPY! because we know what we can be a part of after this life.)
