I don’t know what to write about today.  I have many possibilities (a whole document full of “ideas”) but nothing is feeling just right.  I could write about how the last week and a half have been some of the hardest but best days in our marriage, how I love hearing our daughter singing Primary songs in the back seat of the car or to her baby dolls while she plays, how I love my family so much because of all the unconditional love and support they offer, or how excited I am that school is out for the summer!

Instead, I just sit here listing those things.  Because sometimes life is like that.  It is just normal.  It just goes on.  And on.  And on.  My maternal grandmother kept a daily journal and I am sure that sometimes she questioned the purpose (I LOVE reading and transcribing her words) and yet I have learned so much from her and can’t wait for all her grand- and great-grandchildren (and however many generations in the future) to learn from her faith and wisdom.

So todayhave no great wisdom to share.  Just that life goes on and I am so grateful for the blessing of knowing of the Gospel and the Atonement.  It offers me so much peace and hope during times of joy and times of crap.  It, with all the physical and spiritual angels who have helped carry us through the last 10 days and will more in the future, have made it possible to keep going.

Take a moment and recognize YOUR angels and thank them for the strength and HOPE they are providing for you.  You may or may not be able to see them, but they will hear you and continue to bless you.

    Very nice, Megan. When life is normal, it’s a nice relief. Sometimes it is quite wild, but even the wild stuff is just part of the whole thread of it.
