Joy cometh in the morning

"Yes, 'weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.' Then, in the dawn of your increased faith and understanding, we arise and choose to wait upon the Lord, saying, 'Thy will be done.'... Let us not give up on the Lord. His blessings are eternal."
--Elder Robert D. Hales

3 sounds that I hate.

1. Chewing. I detest the sound of someone chewing. Seriously, you'd be better off to shove a vinegar-coated spoon down my throat than to sit next to me while you're eating. I know that eating has become very much a social activity. And that's fine! Nobody is listening to other people eat if they also are eating. But, if you're the only one in the room eating and everyone else is innocently trying to do their homework, enjoying a quiet conversation, or even watching a movie, go in another room and shut the door!

2. Kissing. Let's all be honest with ourselves. The sound of kissing is horrific. Now, I'll be honest too. I obviously don't care one bit when I'm the source of that noise... But, be respectful of the people around you! It's bad enough to see it coming from someone else let alone to hear it. You all know what I'm talking about. It's disgusting. So, do the people around you a favor and keep the smacking-noises to a minimum when in public. Thank you.

3. Goodbye. I absolutely hate that word. It's awful! I can't even fully explain my detestation behind that word but it's there. Let me tell you. So, please. Don't ever tell me "goodbye". Pick a different phrase like "I'll see you later!" or "Peace out!" or "Hasta la vista!" or how about just "I love you.". All of those are so much better than "goodbye".

Sunday afternoons...

Today has been so fun. I started it off with the last two sessions of General Conference (which was fantastic), a little later Josh and I made a delicious dinner (honey-glazed ham and funeral potatoes) which turned out amazing, and I finished the afternoon off by coloring pictures of Disney Characters and listening to Alexi Murdoch. It's been a good day! As my favorite commercial says: "It's the simple things that make life better..." (Rhode's bake and serve... Yum! We had those with dinner tonight too)
