Be Stong

Being strong is not something that comes easy to some. 
I know I personally have had to work exceptionally hard at it.
And even more so this past year as I am becoming accustomed to the Air Force life and it's unpredictable nature.

I'm not sure if I'd really call myself a STRONG person, but I am stronger then I used to be for sure. 
And I know that is something I can thank my Heavenly Father for. 

I'd say that maturity and time also help when it comes to having a sense of strength along with a decent amount of patience to hold yourself together. 

It's amazing how much a person can change in a lifetime, really.

My mom and I were talking about how people change this weekend in fact and how much we ourselves have changed. 

I'd like to say that I have changed for the better and become more of the person I want to be at 25.
Which is good news and I certainly wouldn't be who I am without having had the experiences I have.

I say this because this morning I completely surprised myself .
I received some very disappointing news but instead of becoming upset and mad, I simply accepted it for what it was. I immediately prayed for peace to come over me and that any bad feelings would simply stop.
 I knew that I was not in control and unfortunately I had to be ok with that, which I am.
It doesn't make it any less disappointing or upsetting, but having strength and keeping faith does make it a little bit easier.

It's OK Thursday

I know you ALL have probably been so worried I had fallen away from blog land for good
But no need to worry folks
I am in fact alive!
Sooooooo it's time to have a little fun with Amber & Neely 
on this beautiful Thursday

It's OK

That I am still only in chapter three of Hunger Games but decided to go see the movie because I just couldn't wait any longer and LOVED IT!

That sometimes I lose my patients when it comes to Korea.

To be SOOOO beyond excited I get to see the Pilot in 16 days...people you have no idea what a blessing this is. I'm pretty sure I prayed everyday for months that I would see him sooner than July and it's happening!!!

That I'm so sad that One Tree Hill is now in fact over for good.

That my Pandora is constantly on the Josh Groban station at work...hello he's amazing!

That I'm obsessed with my new Louis purse ;)

That I have more Easter candy than one person could possibly eat. Okay... maybe 'could' isn't the right word...'SHOULD' eat is more like it.

To be super flattered that a co-worker said I was full of Sunshine and smiles...that's what I hope to always be. 

Well, that's all for now.
I sure have missed blog land.
I'll write again soon
