Happy Sunday everyone! Its a beautiful day, the sun is shinning, I am home with Kyle. I mean could it be any better? Nope! Yesterday Kyle and I went to the temple and did sealings. It was fun. We were there for a little over an hour, Kyle really enjoyed it.
So I chickened out on giving blood the other day, didn't happen... part of it was I was to lazy to leave after running errands all day.

So yesterday I had an interview at a Lawyers office. (As a receptionist.) I would be working mainly with one lawyer. I am hoping and praying that I get the job. If I get it I start on Monday! I find out sometime today. I'm praying that I get the job.
Today I am going to give blood. Well I am going to try anyways. Last time I gave blood they told me not to try again.... that was almost 5 years ago. But then I was told I could try again. So lots of water. I am just afraid that I am going to have to use the bathroom while I am hooked up to the needle. That would suck, but totally my luck.
Nichole and her family are coming to visit! There staying here! I am way excited to spoil my nieces. I miss them and they live so far away that I haven't seen them since my wedding. I love my sister!

Lessons of my father

With yesterday being father's day it made me think of all the things that my father taught me.
1. Find someone that makes you laugh everyday and stick with them.
2. Once you are married do everything you can to make it work.
3. Live everyday like it was your last.
4. Life is not always fair but it can be fun!
5. He taught me to tie my shoes
6. He taught me to ride a bike.
7. Tried teaching me to play fair. Sadly I still cheat! I play dirty, just ask Kyle.
8. He taught me to be Honest.
9. He taught me to Love others.
10. He also taught me to be a friend.

Thank you daddy for everything you have done for me. You were the best dad! You taught me so much, every moment of every day you found something to teach me. I love you so much. But most of the things you taught me made me who I am because of the love you showed for me and for the rest of the family.

This is totally how I feel at times. Today this is how I feel mostly because I am so tired. I hate when I work so late. Plus the fact that my body has a stupid internal clock thing going on. I have a hard time sleeping past 8.
Plus I have been having an itchy allergy kind of thing going on. Not exactly sure what is causing it. But all I know is it itches and I am going crazy!!!!

THE KARATE KID - Official Trailer [HQ]

So Kyle and I went and saw Karate kid, I was optimistic. Turned out I loved it even better then the original. I loved the fact that the story line was the same but that it brought it back to its orgins CHINA! I mean karate started in china and that is were it is. You get to see more action, more beautiful scenery, and you feel like there is a better connection between you the viewer and the characters. I thought Jackie Chang did a wonderful job in his role as the mentor. I loved how there was a lot of Chinese spoken in it as well. Plus the girl has a story line, she is no longer just an extra character... What can I say I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

Shut up!

So Kyle and I decided that we really do not want our future kids saying shut up... so I am having to stop saying it... Its not easy. I am catching myself all the time saying "the word!" Some days are better then others but I am looking forward to the day when I don't have to worry about it any longer! Hopefully that day is soon!
Well stake conference was really good. They reorganized the stake presidency. It was weird though because Kyle and I both felt like we were visitors because we haven't been in the stake that long and we are moving out of the stake next month. It was sweet though the music was done by the primary, and here I was singing along. "Faith is knowing the sun will rise, brighting each new day!" But I was pleased that there was a new song that I didn't know! And I loved it!
"A long time ago in a beautiful place,

Children were gathered ’round Jesus.
He blessed and taught as they felt of His love.
Each saw the tears on His face.
The love that He felt for His little ones
I know He feels for me.
I did not touch Him or sit on His knee,
Yet, Jesus is real to me.

I know He lives!
I will follow faithfully.
My heart I give to Him.
I know that my Savior loves me.

Now I am here in a beautiful place,
Learning the teachings of Jesus.
Parents and teachers will help guide the way,
Lighting my path ev’ry day.
Wrapped in the arms of my Savior’s love,
I feel His gentle touch.
Living each day, I will follow His way,
Home to my Father above.
Chorus "

Elder Evans and Elder Price from the quorum of the 70 were there. It was really funny because one of the men that was speaking said "When I grow up I want to be just like him." (Says a 50 year old man about a man half his age. It was super cute.) Elder Evans spoke about the warning sings of life, and how Satan uses those warning signs against us to make us fall into temptation. Elder Price I don't think knew how to end a meeting on time. He was the junior apostle and yet he spoke the longest. Ahhh! And the problem was that he really wasn't speaking to me, he was talking to the teens approaching mission age and the elderly with time to serve....

A True Apostle of God, Jeffrey R. Holland

I love how much power Elder Holland has as he bears testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. I have always loved watching him bear such a simple testimony. He says it so well.
Today we have stake conference, I will let you know how it goes.
Is it any wonder? Christ is the Greatest of all!

David Ball - Riding With Private Malone

Happy memorial day

There are many stories of veterans that gave there lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have. But I think that we don't always think of the struggles that they had when they left for war. Did they want to go? Did they go out of duty? Did they go to impress? These are the stories that we never hear. But we can imagine how they go.
But I think that with memorial day comes the knowledge that the visions of those before us have been passed down, they are our forefathers and they have helped form our world. Say thank you to a veteran. They gave it there all. Be grateful for them and what they did.
Private Malone by: David Ball
I was just out of the service thumbing through the classifieds
When an ad that said:"Old Chevy" somehow caught my eye
The lady didn't know the year,or even if it ran
But I had that thousand dollars in my hand

It was way back in the corner of this old ramshackle barn
Thirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp
When I pulled the cover off,it took away my breath
What she called a Chevy was a sixty six Corvette

I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
But what a thrill I got when I sat behind the wheel
I opened up the glove box and that's when I found the note
The date was nineteen-sixty six and this is what it wrote:

He said,"My name is Private Andrew Malone"
"If you're reading this,then I didn't make it home"
"But for every dream that shattered,another one comes true"
"This car was once a dream of mine,now it belongs to you"
"And though you may take her and make her your own"
"You'll always be riding with Private Malone"

Well it didn't take me long at all,I had her running good
I love to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
I had her shining lika a diamond and I'd put the rag top down
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town

The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right
But it picked up that oldie show,especially late at night
I'd get the feeling sometimes,if I turned real quick I'd see
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me

It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
Who fought for his country and never made it home
But for every dream that's shattered,another one comes true
This car was once a dream of his,back when it was new
He told me to take her and make her my own
And I was proud to be riding with Private Malone

One night it was raining hard,I took the curve too fast
I still don't remember much about that fiery crash
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
They didn't get his name, but I know without a doubt

It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
Who fought for his country and never made it home
But for every dream that's shattered,another one comes true
This car was once a dream of his,back when it was new
I know I wouldn't be here if he hadn't tagged along
That night I was riding with Private Malone
Oh,thank God,I was riding with Private Malone
