California Poppies

 Busy but fun week!
 We had zone conference so be sure to look at the mission website for
 pictures. :) (May 31)

I found some California Poppies! That was a highlight on a warm day.
It got really warm the end of this week but we're doing well and I'm
glad to know my sunblock is doing its job well because the sun is very
very hot. :)

At an appointment with a less active this week the TV was playing in
the background when we first arrived. I was bad and peeked at the TV
before it was turned off, but can you imagine what was playing? An
episode of Little House on the Prarie, but not just the that - It was
the same episode that was playing when I visited my Gram before I left
on the mission.
The episode stuck out to me just as much now as it did then. The
mother was about to have a child and she was disparing over how it had
to be a BOY. To the point that she was jealous of others, and just no
one could console her. Her family needed a boy, she was nothing if she
didn't bare her family a boy, it just had to be a boy!! She finally
had the baby and it was a little girl and in that moment all her
worries where gone and she couldn't have been happier.

 I really struggle with worrying about what I think I have to have,
what situations I have to be in to be okay. Forgetting that all the
things that my Heavenly Father has to give me will always be good,
will always bless my life, and will always end up being 10 times
better for me than the things I dreamed about for myself. Some days I
really struggle with why am I here doing this in Utah right now? I
become jealous of others, in other missions or going about their
lives. Some days I really don't understand, but I know that one day I
will understand and I also know that if I just up and give up, I really
will never understand. So I keep moving forward, and something good
always comes of it, even if it only lasts a moment. Just a cool breeze
or spotting a pretty flower or we find someone really nice who wants
to talk to us. I know that that is a blessing and a sign to just keep
moving forward.

I love you all and I know that as you just keep moving forward and
put your faith in your Heavenly Father he will help you through the
hard times and lead you to amazing happy times. :)

your own fire, lay low and be strong."
