Life- Always moving... Always Changing

(sorry this post has no pictures.. but it's not long.. so enjoy anyways!)

So a lot has been going on.... mostly in my head. (I mean thinking!) I have been doing a lot of thinking. About where my life needs to go.. and what I need to do to get it there. So I am thinking of going to school. I don't say going "back" to school, because that would imply I went to school in the first place. I have thought of 2 different majors I want to pursue. One being nursing. One always needs a good nurse, the second being a childhood/adolescent counselor. But as my sister Robin pointed out, I would probably end up crying right along with whoever I was trying to council. So I will have to think a little more on that one. So that is my long term goal. Finish school! It's funny to think back to when I was in High School. I never, and mean NEVER thought about a career. I was always going to be a mom and wife. I never planned on working or even thought I would ever have to work. But now I am at a place in my life I need to think about a career and not just a job. I am excited to look forward to a new adventure. And who knows I might even be your nurse one day. LOL

Other things have been going on.. and this more of a a prayer request. I have some medical things going on, I found out at my physical that I am very very anemic. It's not life threatening, I do have to go in for an Iron replacement treatment. Nothing serious. It is a 6 hour procedure in which they infuse me thought an IV with iron, to bring my levels back up where they need to be. My doctor says I will be amazed at how fast I start feeling better ( I didn't know i felt bad, I have anemic since I was 15). So who knows, I might turn into super woman after this procedure. But they still need to find out why I am losing iron or not absorbing it as I should. So I just ask that you keep me and the doctors in your prayers that they will find the reason.

But I feel now that my life has direction and guidance. I am excited for the next few months and even the next few years.

Book of Mormon in 3 Months

SO I have a little confession to make. I have never read the Book of Mormon cover to cover before. Sure I went to seminary, but to me that didn't really count.. we didn't read ALL of it. So my goal in the next 3 months is to have the Book of Mormon read. Less time on facebook, and watching silly shows on NETFLIX and more time reading the word of God. I am excited for the next 3 months. I need a favor from all of you? (if anyone really reads this or not, I am not sure).. but keep me in check... I am going to have be very focused to get this done. But I think for me, this is so important. This year's theme in Primary is something like "I love to read the scriptures" I can't teach Dakota to love the scriptures if I don't read them. So it's time to gain my testimony of them, to learn what they have in store for me.

Looking for the Rainbow

So a lot has been going on in a very short amount of time. The divorce was final on the 10th of Jan. Peter came into town, and took Dakota home with him for the month of January. I was not sure how I was supposed to feel, it was a bitter-sweet moment.

A lot of you know that I have been trying to get back on active duty, and was pretty sure I was going to get a recruiting job in Salt Lake city. Well it looks like that is not going to happen. At least not any time soon. I was really upset about this not going through. But after reading something last sunday in church, it gave me new perseptive on things that happen in life. In Moroni 7:26 it says " Whatsoever thing ye shall as the Father in my name which is good, in faith believing that ye shall receieve, behold it shall be done unto you" now here is her take (and mine) on that scripture. Anything you ask the Father in the name of Jesus Chris will be done.. but not just ANYTHING... anything that is good.. and NOT JUST GOOD... but GOOD FOR ME! That is so amazing to me. Heavnly father does know me. He knows what is good for me. So even though the things I may be praying for are good and righteous, they are not part of God's eternal plan for me. WOW.. that is amazing stuff. I love it. I love finding simple truths.

So here I will stay in Colorado. Working, and living. I am excited to stay. There are lots of fun things ahead... I am happy and content with course I am on. There is a reason I am here... and it will be a grand adventure to find out why.
