What has been your favorite family vacation?
I think one of my favorite family vacations was last year, when we went up to Canada to spread my grandfather’s ashes. We drove up and met my mom’s brother and his wife and we got on his boat, the ten of us, (my parents, sister, her husband and baby, my brother, and my aunt and uncle and grandmother and myself!) It was very simple, and we all remembered little things we loved about my grandfather and talked about those things during the boat ride, and then we said a few words while sprinkling the ashes into the ocean. I think it brought us all together, and made us remember that life is precious and fragile.

What is your most embarrassing moment?
I try not to get embarrassed… but once I was playing laser tag in a park, and I thought this one was cute… so as we were leaving we were all hopping the fence and I was like, well I am going to and I am going to do it super cool! So I go, and I jump, and my foot some how caught… and I landed nose-first into the dirt. They rolled me over immediately, and I was wishing they would just leave me there to die.
Or there is the time when I liked this guy, and asked him to help me choreograph a dance, and as we were dancing, I went to turn the music back on… and my pants ripped. That was awkward.

What is your major?

In my religion class we have to post blogs every class, and we have assigned readings and we pick out a quote or just write what we learned or liked... this was my entry for Tuesday's upcoming class.

“Be worthy of the mate you choose” President Gordon B Hinckley

“The right person is someone for whom the natural and wholesome and normal affection that should exist does exist” Elder Bruce R McConkie

I feel like the assigned reading was meant for me right now. I have been thinking a lot lately about what I want in my mate, and what I feel I deserve. I went on a date recently where I was asked the question what I feel I am entitled to in life. That threw me, what am I entitled to? I said a good life, the blessings the Lord has in store for me, and some other generic answers, as I am not a very quick thinking when it comes to questions like that. Having had more time to think about it, and reading these quotes… I feel that I am entitled to love, to a mate worthy of me and I worthy of them. I feel like I am entitled to someone who loves me as much as I love them, who will be able to care and take care of me as much as I do for them. I deserve someone who appreciates me as much as I appreciate them. I am entitled to a hopeless romantic, or at least someone who can understand that I am! There are many more, but it is not necessary for me to write them here… I haven’t dated as much as I would have liked, but from the few relationships I have had, I have seen that sometimes I force things that shouldn’t be forced as Elder McConkie states. I have always been romanced by romance, and I have been struggling lately, trying to figure out if I should be giving up that thought of being swept off my feet by someone… and I find hope in Elder McConkie’s statement that I do not need to give up that idea. I think that when it is the right person, I will be swept away, but in a natural and normal kind of way. I am the type of person to gives all I can to make people happy, to brighten their day, and make them feel special. I do that naturally, and I think that the man that is right for me, will do the same. He and I will be similar, have had similar backgrounds, but more importantly, similar desires and goals out of life. We will we worthy of each other, and we will feel natural and normal affection towards each other, and I think at the same time. I dated someone whom I felt very close to quickly, and then it was over. Talking to my sister, she said, he wasn’t right for you. I said, but you never knew him! And she said, no, but I know you. And the man that is right for you will know what he has when he has you. I think that it will be a relationship that comes easy for me and him, we will be natural and ourselves the whole time, which is how I strive to be all the time, and we will understand each other. This is not to say that it won’t be work, but as President Hinckley states, “A good marriage requires time. If requires effort. You have to work at it. You have to cultivate it. You have to forgive and forget”. And what powerful advice! I think that is the way to live life in general, with effort, and forgiving.

I found this quote by Elder McConkie kind of funny… he tells us to look for partners who are seeking perfection and then says this “You will likely not find that perfect person, and if you did, there would certainly be no interest in you.” Haha!! Certainly no interest! Oh, I find it humorous… because he knows none of us are perfect! He goes on to clarify what he is saying with “These attributes are best polished together as husband and wife”. I think that is the honest truth that we will not find anyone perfect because we are not perfect. But we will find someone, whom with we will develop and grow with. And I think that is better than finding someone perfect, because it helps require us to lean upon the other, to work together. Finally, the last quote that inspired me was one by President Ezra Taft Benson, saying “…you are not required to lower your standards in order to get a mate.” So true! No matter how long we go unmarried, we are not required to lower our standards to finally get married, if we do we are no longer true to ourselves.

Today in my religion class my teacher was talking about this woman who was in a plane crash with her husband back in August... and how her sisters are taking care of their kids while they are still in the hospital recovering from their burns. I went to her blog and I am bawling the whole time because she sounds like she was such an amazing mother! One thing my teacher said, is that one of the sisters has the youngest child, and he has started calling her mommy because he is so young... and that she doesn't want him to because she wants him to know his mother, because she is so amazing... and that just breaks my heart! I absolutely love her writing style, and the love she has for her husband and children. She is so beautiful and creative, I pray that she will be alright. Something else our teacher relayed, was that one of the sisters said that they think she was given the change to choose, to return to Heaven or to stay and fight through the pain... and that she is choosing to fight. We must be like that in life, choose to fight through the pain, because this life is tough, but it is worth it.

Read her blog and be impressed.

One thing I love about her is that she calls her husband Mr. Nielson... whenever I get married I want to call my hubby Mr. _____ (whatever his last name is...)
