Musical Soul-Mates

Before Krystle and I started dating I was talking to her about music. She had recently switched computers and in the process her old computer died. She had lost everything. She was able to get most of her documents back but didn't get all of her music back.

We were talking about songs that we liked and there was a song that she wanted again. I remember having that song on my computer. That night I went home and made a cd with that song. I also filled it with songs I loved, and thought she would too. I gave it to her and she loved it, every song. A few months later she told me we were musical soul-mates. She still has a playlist on her computer with all those songs.

P.S. I bumped into (member of the Black Eyed Peas) in January.

Add-on Note from Krystle: I laughed when I saw this post, because it kind of looks like Blaine is saying he is musical soul mates with I can assure you that is not the case. Also, the song was a really geeky one called Nike Boots that still makes me smile each time I hear it. I'm not sure why I love it so much, but it brings me joy.

Most importantly

I have been a Primary teacher for the past few years. I like it a lot because it gives me a chance to know kids in the ward that otherwise would be strangers to me. And, I am learning all sorts of lessons about love and patience and what it might be like to teach my own children gospel principles.

Last week during the final meeting, we had a mini-lesson that gave every person in the room a chance to stand up and "fill in the blanks" of the following phrases. It was beautiful, and I decided that I would use it to frame tonight's blog post.

Today, June 29, is the year mark from the day I became a mom.

My entire life has been a series of tender mercies. I am still convinced that I was given my scholarship to Westminster simply because Heavenly Father knew that as a teenager, my tendency was to give up if things were too hard, and He knew I needed to be a teacher.

When I moved to Nephi, I was given a great job simply because the Lord knew that I needed to be HOME in order to sort out the mess I was making of my life. It worked.

Shortly after falling in love with Blaine, I became his Mrs. without hesitation. Our relationship is now and always has been EASY. We knew that we could build a happy life, that we could build a beautiful forever and so we did. We are.
We found an incredible home with room to grow. Purchased at auction, we marveled at the home and tried to think of how we could possibly fill five bedrooms. A tender mercy.

In February of last year, my sister called and talked to me about a possible adoption. There w…
