..there's a calm I can't explain...

I had such a great day at church today. We had a great sacrament meeting and our Sunday school lesson was even better. Our teacher discussed our life before we came to Earth and he spoke about it in a way I had never heard. He put things in perspective that really made me feel so much closer to my savior, Jesus Christ. I had to trust Him and His plan. I actually put my trust in Jesus that his plan was the one that would bring me salvation. I trusted in Him to be our Savior. I felt so moved to think about our pre-mortal life and the decisions we made. I am so grateful for my Savior and that he atoned for my sins. He brings me hope and joy in my life.
On our way home, we got pulled over by the police for dark tinting on our windows.. what a slap in the face. We had such a wonderful spirit and this guy comes along and ruins it. I wanted to be so angry and let it ruin my day, but I saw my husband. He was so calm and respectful. He didn't say one bitter word or complaint. He didn't get angry or walk around pouting. And, especially, he did not let it ruin his day. I am so grateful that he is an example to me. I was in the kitchen, being pitiful, and my dad came in and reminded me something that I can always look at to calm me down. I was holding Isabella in my arms and he said, "Just look at your beautiful daughter. She is the only thing that matters." I still stood there sulking and waited until he walked away. I looked at Isabella and realized he is right. Just looking at her sweet smile made my heart melt. Why would I let something so stupid ruin my day?


  1. She is so big! I love her so much and can't wait to spend more time with her. I am sure Oliver will love to have her around when you visit! Love you guys!

  2. I love seeing pictures of Bella! She's so beautiful!
