Truly a Great Man

The leader of my church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints), President Gordon B. Hinckley, passed away this evening at approx. 7 PM.

He has been president of the LDS church since I was about 12 years he has been a comforting presence to me for many of my formative years. I have always had such tremendous love and respect for him, which I think can be said for virtually all members of the LDS church.

I'll miss you, President Hinckley.

Evening Self Reflection

This has been a very up and down week for me - Some great highs, and deep lows. Even within the same day sometimes. I often feel disjointed, and even more self-conscious than usual when I'm "roller-coast-ery" like this. But I'm so thankful for those great times that helped pull me up out of my slump. For good friends and family.

This evening I am feeling much more at peace. I know there are so many things I need to improve on, mistakes I need to stop repeating. But, I know I am a good person - a loved person - and nothing will ever change that. I need to remember that more often.

These past few weeks feel like they have flown by. Here's a quick run down of the main events/thoughts:

Christmas: Excellent as always. We were "home" in Colorado, and got to spend time with both of our families. I was ecstatic about Mark's big present to me/us - a new camera! It's a Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and I LOVE it. We seriously have taken almost 1,000 pictures since he gave it to me. He was sneaky too - he packed up this big box with peanuts and a photography book, and took a picture of me opening that with the new camera. I'm seriously way excited. (: I always love being in CO for Christmas, and I'm glad we got to spend a few days there.

New Years: We did our usual party over at Liz and Mike's house, which is always a lot of fun. Mark decided he wanted to bring Rock Band over, so much of the evening was spent playing that. I'm so glad we have some of my sisters close by to hang out with.

Sickness: I've had this ridiculous lingering cold that decided to get really bad the last few days. Hates it, wish it would go away.

Mary's Birthday: I still need to send her a birthday present - I'm a lame sister.

Mark's Birthday: OK, this hasn't happened yet, but it will next weekend. Two of Mark's friends from CO are driving over, so it should be a lot of fun.

Alright, my brain is seriously fried right now, so...kind of a boring entry. Here's a few random pictures from the last couple of weeks, enjoy!
