My Mother

I don't know about you all...but my mother is the BEST!!! Don't know where I'd be without her.  She is my example and friend and I just love her so! I wish I could say that I wrote this, but I did not.  But it is completely accurate! Happy Mother's Day Mom!!! Thanks for all you've done to shape me and my life, and for all you will undoubtedly do in the future:)

A Mother's Love
Author Unkown

There is no love like a mother's love,
    no stronger bond on earth
Like the precious bond that comes from God,
   to a mother when she gives birth.

A mother's love is forever strong,
    never changing for all time
And when her children need her most,
   a mother's love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
   God bless them every one
For all the tears and heartache,
   and for the special work they've done.

When her days on earth are over,
   a mother's love lives on
Through many generations,
   with God's blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers,
   for they love with a higher love
From the power God has given,
   and the strength from up above.

Although I have never thought of myself as a picky person...I think I am wrong. I did however, overcome being a picky eater on my mission.  Eating cow's tongue and intestine can make you see the good in mushrooms and coleslaw.  Food with hair in it and smothered in grease tells ya that the stuff you thought was bad- REALLY wasn't so bad after all:)

Guess how many times I've been shopping in the past week to find a new shirt?  And guess how many shirts I've come home with...Zero.  Which isn't horrible, I just really wanted a fun new one! But I just didn't 'love' any of them...and who wants to spend money on something if you aren't gonna love it??  --Not me! Picky.

Snapchat is a new acquisition of mine.  One that I am still getting used to...because I still don't fully understand the purpose of it.  Half the time I get one, I just want to respond to the person with a text.  but you can't send 'just text' - a picture HAS to be included. That is the nature of the app.  So then I sit and try to think of a clever way to respond with the required picture- but I don't like any of that I take.  So the I rarely end up responding. Picky.

And then there's dating.  I feel bad for those guys that have taken me out this semester- or with whom I've hung out. There either strong in the gospel- and I'm just not interested in them.  Or they're cute, but not strong enough in the Gospel.  Maybe I judge too quickly, but when I see a red flag having to do with worthiness or when the spirit's not for me.  Gospel is the #1 requirement in my future companion.  Picky.  But that's a picky I'm okay with;)

 So to whomever loves me- thank you for accepting me and all my pickyness:)
