Well now that I have somewhat pulled myself out of the deep slump that I was in! I thought I would share a thought that I had this past weekend. (Also I am putting off planning my sharing time for as long as possible!)
Well last weekend Morg and I traveled to St. George for a little break! It was so BEAUTIFUL! We could not have asked for a better weekend, beautiful weather, good food and lots of shopping. On Sunday we went with Grandma and Grandpa to church. Well Morg and I were sitting there his arm around me, my head on his shoulder. He was looking so dang cute in his striped suit and new tie and me in my new very cute outfit and black high boots! That day we looked like such a hot couple! Well out of the corner of my eye I caught a girl that probably was around 8-10 range. Well she had her eyes fixed on us. She had dark brown hair, freckles. At first glance she reminded myself a lot of how I looked at that age. Anyway....I couldn't help but think! I remember being that exact age and seeing a couple my age and thinking to myself that I could not wait to be older and have a boy to hug and kiss. I never wanted a boy then I just liked to dream about what I would be like as an adult. Morgan was being very sweet and I noticed that when he leaned over to kiss my cheek (the shock of kissing in sacrement) she grew a little smile on her face.
In my own mind I think that little girl was thinking to herself the same things I dreamed about. Wondering who she would end up with! I think that my 8 year old version of me would be so happy who I ended up with. She would be so glad that I married someone who kisses me in church (he sometimes even slaps me on the bum) someone who whispers funny things in my ear and who begs for me to tickle his back. I think my eight year old self would be happy with who I am now. She would though be very ticked off that my Best Friend at the time Shannon and I...well we have not talked to each other in like 5 years. And I guess I would tell my 8-year old self...it sucks getting old! Because friends like Shannon get married and move far far away!

How cute. I'm glad you are not so sad anymore. Hope this week is better! It does suck getting old sometimes and realizing you've lost touch with good friends--I agree.
