The Love of a Family

Where do I go to find companionship?
Am I left drifting and alone?
Reaching out has always burned me in the past;
Don’t really know what to do…
 
For this moment, we are here
And here we shall stay.
My sister, my brother
I know it has been hard;
Love and acceptance
You will find aplenty.
 

This poem is dedicated to the River Bend Young Single Adult Ward in Utah and how I felt while I was there. The only sad thing about moving for me is the fact that I can’t take all of these wonderful people with me.

Life Moves Fast!

Most of the house is still packed from before
Only a few things left to do, although it seems like more…
Veracity of the previous statement is under suspicion.
I would really like this to be done and over with.
Never certain just when it will come, yet we’re
Going to get ready regardless.
It’s all about the timing.
Don’t give up even though it looks bleak.
Always remember that He hasn’t let you down before.
Yokes include another pulling with you!
“For my burden is easy and my yoke is light.”
Coming on up to crunch time, I’m ready!
Only a little bit of patience to be put to the test.
Me? I’m trying to do what I can.
Inside I try not to shake too badly;
Not going to let the fear and doubt in!
Got my family all around me to see this through!

Also because we’ve been getting ready for a big change! Life in my family takes a long while to build up to something before it moves really fast!

Monday, May 2, 2011 – Part 2

Lydia went from pregnant with her 2nd and just moved in to a house in West Valley to already having her baby and an apartment in Murray. No mention has been made of Rotha, maybe he’s visiting Cambodia?

For some reason talk of a ‘leading man’ named Balthier makes me laugh.

Must go eat tater tots now.

Oh, and I’m wired, as in, actually have wires on my head. And there are puppy-dogs in the backyard who are impersonating squeak-toys.

Right…uh…(feels like a tv filled with white noise is going off in her head)

So, I’m 15, but we moved from Sandy to Riverton to Sandy and Julia’s not only back from Germany but already had the baby (it’s a boy!) and the baby looks like he’s 7.

(blinks)

I am just this side of hysterical.

Julia told me to write how I’m feeling i this nifty little book and I’m feeling really overwhelmed and kind of dazed with just a pinch of hysteria at the back.
