Hello World

Today was a good day.
This week has been a great week.
This month has been. . . fantastic.

now that I come to think of it,
my life has been, is, and always will be wonderful.
{I really truly believe that}
wonderful because I am so blessed.

I'll admit, sometimes I forget.
I forget how blessed I am and sum up the nerve to consider for a moment that life could be better.
I let myself think

If only I were:
life would be better.

My Bishop shared with me some words for thought that really put things into perspective:

Learn from the past.
Look forward to the Future,
But live in the present.

no ifs of the future.
no buts from the past.

life is good right where I'm at.
Not everything is perfect.
Which is perfectly fine with me.

and now for some loves in the photobooth

{don't you just love the imperfections at the bottom?!}
{and B's look in 1,2,3, and 4 in the second strip}
{what a silly boy}
