i choose the sunny side of life

{me {duh} last summer swingin grapfruit branches in my family's lil orchard}

So lately, as in the last two days...I have been realllly been feeling sorry for myself...rexburg is so totally windy..{like so windy no one can ever tell you did your hair in the morning} can hardly tell it is almost summer! {okay I take that can see GRASS!!! Which is a miracle!!} & so back to feeling sorry for is still school and work is still work..and my days lately just mesh together in a seemingly never ending cycle. Every day is pretty much the same old thing, until I realized what else I had forgotten to account for = Just about everything in my life and how blessed I am to be married to the most wonderful person, to have the family that I have, and to know that I can always count on my Heavenly Father above. These are things I can always count on: My hubbb, family, prayer. Should not this be enough? Does anyone else ever feel like this? Well actually...that is a silly question. My dear Scott tells me {In the nicest of ways} I won't ever stop feeling like this if I don't just stop &

So I loved reading your post because you're right - days are hard and life is hard and sometimes it can be overwhelming. But those three things make all the difference. Thanks for the reminder - it was a good one to get! And I love the video of Bailey singing. She did an amazing job! That is one of my favorite songs ever. :)

Good luck in Rexburg, Britt. It is a fun place but such a COOOOLD place to be. And here I've been wishing Utah were warmer...silly me. ;o)
