Happy Anniversary!

6 years ago today, Bryce and I got married. We were supposed to get married on the beach, but it rained all morning. So, at the last minute we changed the location and got married in the cultural hall at our church. I used to think that rain on your wedding day was a bad omen, but I think the heavens were crying tears of joy! Ha ha ha! Bryce and I have had so many ups and downs through out these 6 years. Heck, for the first year I kept wondering if I had made a mistake. As we were reminiscing today, we went through a lot of stuff the first 3 years we were married. We had some family dnamics that we had to learn how to deal with; I became a memeber of the church shortly before we were married; we moved 3,000 miles away from my home; we had 2 kids during those first 3 years. The last 3 years haven't exactly been smooth sailing, but it has been a little easier to deal with. Bryce and I still fight at times, but we know that we are in it for the long run. Between the two of us, I have definitely changed the most. I went from a happy, bubbly, nurse with lots of friends and family to a very unahppy stay at home mom who didn't have many friends. I went through a really rough time after I had Sara. Those were the darkest days I have ever experienced. During these past few years, I have started to become more like the old me. I am a much happier person who has lots of friends that I know I can count on. I wouldn't have made it these past few years without the unconditional love that Bryce has given me. I am not the same girl he feel in love with and married 6 years ago, but I sure hope that I am an even better version of that girl now. Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband!!

P.S. Just 4 more weeks until we are sealed!!

6 Years Ago

6 years ago today, I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I cannot tell you how many blessings have been bestowed upon me these past 6 yrs! We also have a little less than 6 weeks until Bryce and I are sealed for time and all eternity! We are so excited to finally be a forever family!

I am having a really hard time right now. I just feel like I am an emotional wreck. The past 10 days has been very rough. Last Friday, the 6th, a friend of ours 8 yr old boy was in an ATV accident. He had a shattered femur and a skull fracture, which has caused his brain to bleed and swell. He is still in an induced coma and no one is really sure what the outcome will be. This happened a little over a yr after our cousins 11 yr old daughter was killed in an ATV accident. So, it has really hit home for me. To top all of this off, my parents were in a really bad car accident Friday night. My mom broke her wrist and is very bruised and banged up. My dad has a concussion and is pretty banged up as well. I'm glad it wasn't worse. I'm just having a really hard time because I am so far away from my parents. I have been crying off and on since I found out Saturday morning. My mom has always been the one to take care of everyone. So, she is having a really hard time not being able to do anything. And my dad has been disabled for 16 yrs so he cannot really help. I told my mom that I wanted to come down for a couple of weeks to help them out and she told me that 2 weeks just really isn't going to help her. She will still be in a cast after I leave and that she still won't be able to drive and use her hand. It really hurt my feelings. I know she is having a tough time, but I just want to be able to help them. I just don't know what else I can do being so far away. I know it sounds silly, but I guess I just never thought anything would ever happen to my parents. It definitely put things into perspective for me. What I wouldn't give to be closer to them. Maybe one day.

Wow! I just cannot believe all of the tornado's and damage that has happened in the past couple of days. It is so heartbreaking. I grew up in the south, but we just really had to deal with hurricanes. I will take a hurricane any day over tornado's. They are just so scary! At least with hurricanes, you have notice of when a storm is coming. Sometimes with tornado's, you only have minutes! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who have been effected by these storms. I pray that God will comfort and provide for each of them.
