Hello Pretty People. It's been quite a while!
Rachel and I are just getting settled in a routine for this semester of school...pretending to be very busy and involved I am currently laying on the couch with tears streaming down my face after watching Stephanie Nielson's youtube video "My New Life"..(for the millionth time) about everything she goes through on a day to day basis after being involved in a plane crash that burned over eighty nine percent of her body.. When looking through others point of view it is amazing how quickly and powerfully our perspective is changed. The strength and energy that we have the opportunity to draw from other's around us is a blessing I cannot show enough gratitude for. As I lay on the couch next to my sweet friend, I am filled with gratitude for the people in my life. The beautiful people that have faith in the things I do, make me laugh, challenge me, walk with me through rough times, and listen when things aren't going quite the way we thought they would! I think back about the last five years.. and cannot remember life without knowing these amazing people. Driving through Rexburg and noticing the small yellow flowers covering the fields.. .(which people swear are weeds... I disagree),today I felt once again.. truth.. tapping on my heart. The truth that encompasses all pure beauty. The truth that is found in a human heart beat or in the morning sun electrically breaking through the clouds after a long nights' storm. The truth that we feel as we read the words of life changing people like Gandhi or Nietzche. It is our responsibility to incorporate these truths into our everyday lives and let them not just be things we know.. but things we are. There is truth and joy in so many things... and I feel it all around me!
