Family & Emotions

July 13, 2014

Saturday: What an emotional, challenging day. I had my alarm set for 4:30 a.m. I was going to help pace the Hobbler 1/2 marathon 1:30 time (my friend Rachelle was pacing and I was going to hop in and help). Well Corom and I were up all night with the 3 younger ones throwing up. It was a long night!

I ran the Harry’s loop (1st time doing the Harry’s hill since Grandma’s marathon). I timed the mile long hill and ran it in 6:58. It felt pretty good!
A sweet neighbor girl came over so Corom and I could attend a funeral for a dear friend’s infant baby. My emotions were running high all morning for our friends. She was born prematurely and had other complications. She lived a short time on this Earth but the light and joy she brought to her family will last forever!

There was not a dry eye in the room but their was peace in the room that was so strong and powerful. Our friends are one of the most amazing people we know. Beautiful inside and out! Corom and I were talking and we are so grateful for the gospel in our lives. We know (and this family has the same belief) that we will be reunited with loved ones that have passed from this life… For all time and eternity. It is a blessing and I know our Savior loves each and every one of us. Our friends have been in our thoughts and prayers and we want them to know we love them! Trav and Meg… You and your family are one of the best families we know. You have been a great example to Corom and I! After the gathering at the church we headed to the graveside service. It was a very spiritual experience.

We did spend time as a family the rest of the afternoon. We were able to get a few things cleaned and organized. After putting the kids to bed a few friends came over and we watched a movie.

Sunday: We went to church. The girls were pretty good today (well my youngest was a little hyper… But that is no surprise). I had a meeting after church (with the other YW leaders), a few friends and a few of the young women (from church) stopped by at different times, we had a couple of neighbors over for dinner, and the girls (and friends) were tying each other up during all of this…

It is now 9:15 p.m., the kids are asleep, Corom’s asleep and now I’m going to sleep…
