In case any of you don't know me very well...or at least didn't know I love college football---I LOVE COLLEGE FOOTBALL! :)
About a month ago, I was having lunch at work with a friend--in Beef O' Brady's (local sports bar). And it just hit me. Like a ton of bricks: football season starts soon! I screamed, I think upon my realization and Kwanza looked at me like I was insane. lol
I watched last week and when BYU beat Oklahoma, it made my weekend. I mean, all weekend I would just randomly say: BYU won. They did it. They beat a top 10 school. And then I would just grin. AND to top off the awesome weekend, Alabama won, too.
So I was sitting here wondering what to do with the rest of my day and it hit me: I have TWO football games to watch. :) BYU at 2:30 and Alabama at 6. *sigh* could life get any better? On second thought, don't answer that--just let me revel. :D
Connotation: (It's the responsibility of people to work; it's God's place to hand out grace)
Life has good to me over the past few weeks. I had a friend drive all the way from Wisconsin to visit (okay--I wasn't the reason for the trip, but I'm glad he could make time to stop) and he brought another friend from Tallahassee...it was so incredible to get to visit with them. Who would've guessed that we would ever all sit on a pier at a private pond in backwoods Alabama and visit?
Then FALL came. Well, almost. LOVE FALL. Good chance to rediscover myself (I get to do it every fall :). And life is just beautiful in general. Can't really explain why--it just is.
Spend several days contemplating life sitting on the world's most beautiful beaches. Am slowly healing--both emotionally and psychologically.
My very bones ache at the hope that a visit to Julie & Ryan in UT is a possibility in the near future. I want it so much...
General Conference is around the corner. Can't wait.
I'm glad I live here.
I think that instead of spending 15 more years in school chasing my real dream (of being a cardiologist) or spending 7 more years in school settling for being another type of doctor, I'm gonna be a cardiology surgical physician's assistant. Good career. Better choice. Can live contentedly with that decision. In spite of the fact that I'm almost 26 and still single, I really would love to get married and become a wife and mother sometime in the (hopefully) near future. Waiting is hard.
Daily thought: "Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed." ~D&C 123:17
Life is good. Sometimes I forget and have to be reminded. Silly girl.
