Our Missionaries

I am grateful for our wonderful, hardworking missionaries. We've been able to get to know them very well. We take them out to dinner, watch General Conference with them, and host lessons with them for a man that is interested in the Book of Mormon.

We had donuts while we watched General Conference.
They are wonderful teachers and I love spending time with them.

I am grateful for the photos of the adventures Jonathan and I have had. Jonathan has our photo albums set up on our TV when the chromecast is idle. A few weeks ago, a photo that I took at the Manti Temple a few years ago popped up.

Seeing that picture brought back a lot of memories including the weird guy that Jonathan ended up talking to while I wandered around the temple grounds taking pictures. It is wonderful to have a reminder of times we've spent together.

I am grateful that both Jonathan and I were able to feel a quiet calm during his unexpected job search at the beginning of this year. It came with a certain amount of work on our part, but it came.

I read a talk given by David A. Bednar called Therefore They Hushed Their Fears. It really helped me rely more on my faith rather than waste energy worrying.

I am grateful for all of the new additions to our extended families this upcoming year. Between weddings and another nephew joining the bunch there is a lot to celebrate.

I am grateful for all the time that Jonathan and I have had together and will have in the future.

Funny unrelated story. That watch Jonathan's wearing in the picture would make a small beep on the hour every hour. At some point while we were dating, he lost the watch. Years later, it was found deep in my parent's couch. It beeped, but we couldn't figure out where exactly the beep was coming from.

A few weeks ago, I made a comment about life a decade ago and realized that I've known Jonathan for almost an entire decade. It stunned me that we have been together for so long. It doesn't feel like we've been married for much longer than 4 years, but we'll be doubling that in just a few months. I love the life we built together. It hasn't been easy, but it has been more than worth it.
