Oh to be Grateful!






Oh aren't we grateful! I was feeling a little down in the mouth a few days ago and felt the whispering of the spirit remind me to "think about things you are grateful for" I wont' bore you with those but wow how i was quickly uplifted and very humbled! I am so grateful for so much---we are so excited for our next step---moving to TEXAS---can you believe Scott is our Bishop? I can't think of anything more cool!

Oh but how do i leave my Virginia home of 11 years----even writting about it makes me get a lump in my throat! I just have to have Faith and say, " we'll go where you want us to go dear Lord"---it'll be hard but it will be good! Please know our door is forever open--and dang-it we better get some visitors! Dallas---you so have to do our montage--i will be ordering a bunch rather soon!

Loves to you all,
Ang

Yea we all have so much to be grateful. What an adventure you have ahead of you.... I have moved enough to not want to again, but it is always a little exciting to move to a new place. Meet new people. Just think you may have another kindred spirit there that you would never have known otherwise. We have NEVER not been happy with where we have moved and we have always looked back with such awsome memories of the places that we lived before. You will be such an addition to the area too. You will love it Ang! Bloom where you are planted! :)

I like that idea, Amy: "Bloom where you're planted." I really like this blog for the exact purpose we're doing... sharing images, stories, etc. I loved seeing this shots of your kids. Keep it up.

What kissy people!!!! What fun photos Angie! You are going to be happy in Texas too. I feel it in my bones. I know a Bishop and a ward and a family in Texas who are almost holding their breath with delight. That Bishop can see a great addition to his ward and great help in building the kingdom there. If I were you, I would be holding by breath too. Those new callings are waiting. . . . . How would it be to be knowing that this great and gifted couple with a wonderful family is moving in. Wow! I second the motion to "bloom where you are planted". Don't forget to water and feed the plant! Forward with faith! xoxo Mom
