Life is Beautiful!!
I remember my Freshman year of college when I had finally made the decision to go to Utah State, I had to make my next big decision, where to live. It was a hard choice for me because I was going up all by myself and didn't really know where to start. So I narrowed it down to my top two choices and knew where I for sure didn't want to go. Well, of course it turned out that I went to that place where I knew I didn't want to go. Well, it turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened to me. I felt Heavenly Fathers hand guiding me for sure! I was blessed to live that first year with some of the best roommates that I ever had in my many years of college and moving about. I keep in touch with most of them still today. 5 out of the 6 of us were able to get together for brunch last week and it was really great! (The other one lives in Japan so she couldn't make it:) It was just so fun to see them all and be together again. It has caused me to reflect a lot about my life. I can totally see my Heavenly Father's hand guiding me in so many ways! I am SO very thankful that he has blessed me with the things that I NEED and not just the things that I WANT. I think I would have messed my life up pretty bad by now if it would not have been for His loving guidance in my life. I surely would not have been patient enough to wait for the wonderful husband that I have now. He is one of the biggest blessings that I have. I just feel so grateful for the experiences that life offers us and for a loving Heavenly Father who is just waiting to bless us if we will but come to him and trust him! Life is beautiful! Me, Shannon, Ruth, Leah and Ashlee!
