Every Word, Every Line, Everything


I am amazed, awed, thrilled, surprised, fascinated, overjoyed—I really can't describe the feeling.

I am amazed by life.

I couldn't tell you what inspired me to say this. Actually, yes, I can. It's everything.

This morning I made waffles. They were delicious.

An hour ago I got to see my friend from China get baptized. The spirit I felt there was so pure, so sweet, so real that it almost brought tears to my eyes.

I just finished eating dinner. It wasn't anything special, but while I ate I drank hot chocolate, read “The Fellowship of the Ring,” and swayed in time to my Michael Buble station on Pandora.

Does life get any better than this?

I believe it does! Yesterday was Sunday. The Sabbath at BYU is one of my favorite things, ever. Church was fantastic—and it made me excited to prepare for going on a mission.

Elder Christofferson gave an excellent devotional on taking it one day at a time. I definitely needed it.

Tunnel singing probably got close to 0 degrees (that's Fahrenheit, not Celsius), but it was so amazing I really didn't mind.

Life. Is. Awesome.

We miss you here, but are thrilled that you are so happy there. How's that for an oxymoron??

In the same way that I loved Christmas break, yet was excited to get back to school? Pretty oxymoronic.
