I was thinking about last year again and every thing that had happend.  There was at one point where it seemed my life had completely fell apart...again.  I felt so lost, confused and so very alone.  I was a wreck!  When I feel that way I have be outside.  I can't be cooped up inside...so in those kind of cases, on those kinds of days...I go running.  Not the short runs I tend to do but a real run, a long run.  That day I just took off and I ended up at the temple.  The one place where I can simply stand on the grounds and feel a bit better about life.  I sat down on one of the benches outside and just prayed and prayed and prayed and then I started crying (and yes I did feel embarrassed but there wasn't anything I could do to stop those blasted tears!).  I had my head down and I felt someone tap me on the shoulder.  I looked up and there was this lady standing there, she asked if I was okay and if there was anything she could do for me.  I felt silly and tried to mumble a "NO, I"m okay. Thank you though".  She was so sweet and it kinda took me by surprise the overwhelming love I felt at that moment.  She asked me if I needed  a hug and again I was surprised when I answered yes. Lol.  She hugged me and whispered in my ear that she knew what I was feeling and that I was at the right place and Heavenly Father loved me.  I cried on her shoulder for a minute and then thanked her.  I will never forget that day.   Everything seemed to be going wrong until then.  I can't even begin to describe what a blessing it was for me that she was willing to step out and be so kind!  It was EXACTLY what I needed....

  1. I like hugs. If you ever need a hug feel free to come over, you can get one from me and Robyn. That's 2 for the price of 1.
