I love this post title because it perfectly describes this week. The majority of last week was spent in the sunshine-I already have a semi-tan right arm, I wore shorts twice, and ran the A/C almost 24/7 in my apartment! Monday I worked so nothing really happened. Tuesday however was much different than those of the past. In my last post, I wrote about our Dixie Campus being full of construction. Our dear President Nadauld is working so hard at transforming our campus and helping us progress to university status. If you were to walk around campus you'd find many new additions and expansions underway. On Tuesday I went to the groundbreaking of the first of the many of these:
|Members of the Peter Neilson family got to turn over the first dirt,|
This first one is named The Peter Neilson Memory Garden, they are just places on campus that students can study or relax. It was my first groundbreaking ceremony and it was pretty neat! Tuesday night during my 5pm leadership class I had to do a presentation on a great leader from history. I choose Winston Churchill and learned so much about this man. I was more nervous than I should have been but it worked out and now I am done and can focus on my other projects that are do in the next couple of weeks.
I don't know about all of you but I love donating blood! It's the easiest way for me to save a life or two-plus I have O+ blood which is almost universal so lots of people will accept it in their blood stream. It's kind of a pain the first five hours afterward but by the sixth hour I'm good! Wednesday night my sister and I went visiting teaching. We are not partners but neither of our partners were available so we decided to go together! Visiting Teaching enriches my life and I seriously love going every month, if I could go every week I would! The March message was all about being Daughters in his Kingdom it was really good! I also just love my sister so very much and love preaching the gospel with her!!
Thursday and Friday I worked, studied and slept! That seriously is how my life is now since the semester is rapidly coming to an end. I did however have the whole weekend off which is not normal for me at all, it was so weird. Honestly there was not a better weekend to have off then the weekend of conference! I love General Conference it is the best weekend of the year and thankfully it happens twice a year. My weekend was filled with studying, inspiration, cleaning, more inspiration and just some good bonding time with my friends and roommates. Friday I went to the Temple with Case face, it was super awesome! That night I had a date night with myself I went to Jimmy Johns and orange peel my two favorites. Case knew I was alone so she came over made me change out of my pj's and go on an adventure with her. We both wanted treats so we went to the sweet tooth fairy bakery! It was so delicious and has been way too long since I've been there.
Saturday we watched conference, I studied during the break and then we watched the second half of conference. My sister worked at 4, Tiana was at a baptism and Randi was up north so I had the house to myself again. I took a nap until Tiana got home then we went to eat. After dinner we deep cleaned our house and I did laundry. We pulled our beds out to the front room and watched Toy Story 2. This morning was no different-we watched conference, napped during the break, ate dinner and now doing homework for the rest of our Sunday. It did rain today which proves that "when the saints meet the heavens weep" it rains every conference. This weekend was so great I feel inspired, changed, motivated and invincible.
I love this gospel and don't know where i'd be without it. I love my savior and am thankful for his atonement that makes it so I can repent and make it back to him. I am so very blessed to be part of an eternal family who will be together forever. I am grateful to have to the power of prayer, I know it's true! I know God hears our prayers and answers them when it's right for us. If you trust in him he will direct thy paths. I know Thomas S Monson is the true prophet on the Earth today. I know the book of Mormon is true and needs to be read everyday! I am a daughter of a king, child of God and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!!
