So today, I woke up and I felt pretty crumby. I have had a cold and I did not feel good at all. Robert has also been getting sick and he was not feeling up to par either. I called the primary president and told her we wouldnt be there for nursery and I called September, who is a LIFESAVER, and she told me that she and Travis would do it for us. Well, I got to thinking and reviewing the past week, and I really felt a strong need and desire to go to church. I went with Mama Jen to her ward, which is a singles branch. It was such an inspiring sacrament meeting. I know that I was meant to hear the things that were said. I have been struggling with some things and I was so glad that I had opened my heart to the things that were said. One of the speakers, who I would LOVE to set up with one of my sisters, talked on our relationships with the Lord. He based his talk on proving the Lord. He talked about how Satan will not try to get us to fully disobey, but by partial disobedience we become weak. His whole talk was absolutely incredible and he closed it with a challenge to pick one thing that we can improve on and in our prayers to let Heavenly Father know we were working on that and to ask Him to help us to see the blessings that come from it. Not only would be letting Heavenly Father know we are trying a little harder, but we are also asking Him to help make our blessings clear to us. I loved that. Anyway, a special musical came next. I thought it was going to be a Poor Wayfaring Man because the girl started talking about how this woman had served him with all that she had even though she was poor and had taken him in and washed his feet with her tears, etc. Well, the name of the song was Go in Peace. It gave me chills and it reassured me that if we are doing all that we can to serve Heavenly Father, we will have peace. I wish I could find the lyrics and put them on here...I will research it! It was exactly what my ears/heart needed to hear. I know that we can all be happy and at peace. I truly do wish that for us all. I am going to make a stronger effort to read my scriptures daily and I am going to ask Heavenly Father to help show me the blessings from it. I hope you all can challenge yourselves as well. I love you all and look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Today Robert and I got callings for the ward we are in. I am very excited about them! We got called to be team teachers in the nursery and I also got called to be on the Enrichment Board. I am so excited to be in nursery! We requested to have our nephew, Kole in our nursery(there are 3 nurseries in the ward...a LOT of kids!). He is in our group and I am so excited. Today I went and helped out and I had so much fun playing. I loved it so much and I told Robert that I was excited because now I knew for sure I would not get bored at church! Ha, I am a little ADHD so it is hard for me to sit still that long. I dont think they realized that Robert and I are just big kids as well! Maybe that is why they put us in there. I have started my new job at Lowes. I have been taking all these dumb tests on the computer that are like 3 hours long and way boring. I really just want to be on the register already! I will be on soon enough though! It feels good to work and I like to know that I am contributing to paying the bills. I am planning on changing my hair up a little bit. I just want a little bit of a change. Oh, I have started watching football. I am learning little bits at a time and Robert always takes the time to explain to me what is going on. He is a good teacher. I better get to bed, but I will be putting up some new pics soon! Have a great day!! Much lovin!!

I guess I really can not say that I have bad days. Sometimes things arent what I planned or wanted, but it really does not make for a bad day. I like Boise. It really is a nice place. I love the Dilgards and I seriously married one of the best guys in the whole world. However, it really has been a rough transition to me. I am still trying to figure out this whole concept of being married. It isnt too hard, but I am learning that I have had some selfish tendencies and I am trying really hard to overcome those because there really is no room for selfishness. Anybody who knows me knows that I love people so much and my friends mean the world to me. I find myself really sad sometimes because I really dont have a close girlfriend here that I can just call and chat with about everything. I feel like I am in this unfamiliar place that I cant just get in my car and drive somewhere because I only know my way to one or two streets. I sometimes wish I could just run away to Idaho Falls and see Amy, Michael(who has REALLY grown on me lately :) ), Beck, and the kids. I miss Amy and Becky especially. I have told Robert sometimes that I really am just waiting to have that feeling that I am a part of something. It is hard because everywhere I have went, I have had some security in knowing that either I was not the only new girl or I was surrounded by things that were familiar. I really am not complaining...not at all...I know that I am so blessed, but that does not mean that life is going to be easy. I just need to chin up and have faith. I miss everyone and I love you each so much. Have a super day!!
