(Teeny made her laugh so hard... thanks!!)
The steroids have made their appearance. Welcome!
Cravings, eating and eating. Most kids request/crave McDonalds or fast food. Not Taleah... she requested Cafe Rio. Yep, 10:30 am and she wants Rio. Phone call to grammy and Cafe Rio delivered 30 min later. What a lucky girl! Snappy little attitude and wanting mommy almost all day. Hoping her sleep isn't too interrupted by these, but chances are.... it will. Counting down to the end of this 1st month.
Scott wanted to go to church today... and I did not. Not because I don't love church, or I'm not thankful for the ward, but it was fast and testimony meeting and I knew that I would be prompted to get up and share my feelings/testimony. I told him that I was not ready and this was all too fresh. It is...but he wanted my support and he wanted to publicly thank the ward for all of their hard work/support.
It turns out, church was what I needed. Took some of the anger out of my heart and pointed me in the right direction. One statement that hit me hard... committment to the gospel will get you through hard things. I know that this sucks and it's hard, but using my knowledge of the gospel and the Atonement helps. A lot. Another ward member pointed out that service is something they are willing to do. And even though sometimes it is hard to be the receiver of service, accept it and embrace it. Others will be blessed and they want to help. That is a lesson I have learned very quickly. I will do my best to embrace it. We appreciate it more than ever! The ward was very sweet and supportive. It was hard to make it through sacrament meeting, but we did. And I know it was just what I needed.
