Kite Days

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Well, officially my best gal pal Hills is moving back to Orem. We try not to talk about it but the end is here :'( We have been hanging out every night this week because she moves this friday and I have no idea what I am going to do without her here in town. We have random moments where we will look over at each other with tears in our eyes and then of course we burst out laughing because we are just so ridiculous. We have had some great times and made so many memories together, the other night we were up to no good, as usual, at the grocery store and spotted a helium tank....enough said. Then tonight we pigged out together and watched a fun movie while we ate ice cream straight from the carton. I love my little, fake, British Scouser Bottom!

Happy Mother's Day

I am so lucky to have so many strong female examples in my life. My family really is fantastic, I'm a major fan. My grandmothers, aunts, friends, co-workers, sisters, and of course my own mother. She is just nutty and I am so glad that she is mine, and that I am hers. We just kind of belong together like that, forever. I have missed her a lot this week, living away is great until I get homesick and emotional. I just thought that I would share my Mama-La's list of basics, she wrote this to me in an e-mail just the other day: 

Say your prayers, go to church, go to the library, read something uplifting, funny and serious everyday, do 2 nice things everyday for someone...( 1 you tell and 1 only you and Heavenly Father know) write in you journal, be polite, be honest and pay your tithing. See, it's so easy.

I would add that laughing at yourself is a daily must. I love my Mother so much, she is just great. I can always hear her reminding me these little basic musts in my head. "Don't forget to say your prayers". The 2 nice things rule has really stuck with me and I think about it almost everyday. I hope that when I have a family I can teach my children the same things she has taught me. I am so glad that she will always be my mother! Hope you have a really great day Mama!
