Sorrows & Joys

There are days that I completely understand that Heavenly Father has a plan for each one of us and find great peace in knowing that He is completely aware of me.  Then there are days that I just miss Kirtland and can't catch the vision.  Today is one of those days.  

I'm still obsessed with Kirtland and therefore read all the blogs of missionaries serving there.  Today's posts from these blogs brought such sweet experiences that, I hate to say it, made me so jealous.  While I'm laying in bed all day, the Kirtland sisters are singing in the Kirtland Temple!  This is where the "WHY ME???" comes in.  I'm serious.

I'm being selfish, I know.  But sometimes coming home early from your mission because you're sick is hard.  Harder than I previously thought.  So cut me some slack.
But in other news, I got to be here when this cute little guy came into the world!  I wasn't going to meet him until he was a whole year old!

I'm in love.

So there are some benefits to being home...more than I previously thought.

Nicole, you have been such an inspiration to me. I LOVED your lessons in Relief Society. You have such a sweet and strong spirit. I know you will accomplish a great amount of work, even if you don't get to go back to the mission.Cool to see that you got to be there for your nephew(?) being born. I unfortunately will not get to meet my future nephew until he is a little over 1 year old since i'll be on my mission. Stay strong and be of good cheer. You are loved, Nicole.
