I'm laying in bed on this blistery cold Sunday morning, smelling the "Winter" candle Aunt Raine gave me for Christmas, and listening to Louis Armstrong. I can't help but smile. I just finished preparing my lesson on the character, perfections, and attributes of the Savior. I'm not sure if life gets much better than this.
I worry a lot, I have doubts a lot. But this morning I just feel love.
I used the same iPod while running for probably 6 years. There is one song that was listened to more than any other song on that iPod. I typically started every run with this song. Now it's kinda a cheesy song. Okay that's a lie it's a super cheesy, but oh well right? It's a obscure song by Lonestar called, "I've gotta find you."
Sometime this fall I lost this iPod, sad day, but before I lost it I was visiting Jason in Fallbrook. I started my run with this song like always. It was a beautiful sunny, practically perfect temperature day as I ran through the rolling hills of Wine County. Half way through the song I realized something, I may have cried, who knows, but it hit me. I found him.
I know finding him hasn't solved all my problems. I know, I know, getting married will cause more problems that I can possibly imagine. It won't be all sunshine and roses. But today, this morning, right now, I am just so excited. No matter the problems, fights, trials, I know my life is so much better now that I've found him. His patience, wisdom, and love for me is more than I could have possibly imagined.
I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with him.
