Today was a beautiful day. It seems like most Sundays are snowy, but today was gorgeous. The sun was shining and everything just seemed right with the world.
I woke up and went to church. Carine drew a lovely picture of our apartment buddies.
The food in the Cannon was struggling today. I had an omelette and some ice cream. Nothing else looked very appetizing. Even though the food wasn't superb, I still missed hall meeting because I couldn't make myself leave the Cannon. I just like socializing entirely too much. And then Cooper lost his ipod, so I had to help him look for it. We didn't find it, but I think it'll show up. All fingers crossed.
The best part of the day was the stake relief society fireside. We focused on receiving answers to questions through personal revelation. It was really good. There were two musical numbers that brought a really strong spirit. The stake relief society president and the stake president both spoke. Something I found interesting/humorous was that we pray for patience, but we want patience now.
After the fireside, the evening was pretty chill. I looked at a lot of old pictures. I love pictures. I love memories. I am so thankful for everything that has happened in my life. Sometimes I wish I would have documented my life more, but I guess now is a good time to start. And having this blog definitely helps.
Ward prayer tonight was good. I stayed and talked afterwards (duh). At one point, I heard beautiful piano music. I looked over, and Megan had left the group and gone to the piano. She was just making it up as she went, and I was in awe. I am so lucky to have such a talented friend. And not just talented at the piano. Megan is a wonderful friend in every way. Just today on the way back from the fireside we were talking about how evident it is that God knows us because He places certain people in our lives. I am so thankful to have a friend I can trust, laugh with, have spiritual conversations with, and be myself around. She is truly an answer to prayers.
Lately I have been more aware than usual that Heavenly Father loves me. He knows me. He knows what I need WAY better than I do. He's taking care of me, even when I don't realize it. His plan for me is so much better than any plans I had for myself.

"When you go through trials and you wonder where God is REMEMBER: the teacher is always quiet when giving a test."
