Day 23: Tattletale

Maybe Baby,

I'm gonna tattle on your dad today. Last night, he was super excited
about the new IOS for Apple, Mavericks. Yep. Super excited. Before bed, he got all our devices downloading the new system... in secret.

He LOVES to customize electronics. Every so often we have talks about him leaving my devices alone.

This secret download meant that NONE of our alarms went off this morning. We both had to be at work at 7:30, and we both woke up at 7:21.

As I ponder this a bit, I'm very proud of the fact that I didn't scream or yell. I have a LONG way to go, but I handled today with grace. I realized the time, hopped out of bed, and started getting ready. We didn't make the bed, and we didn't eat breakfast, but we both made it to work on time and gave each other a quick kiss before heading out the door. I told him that he should probably start thinking of a way to make it up to me.

So, why am I telling you this? Now, you know three new things:

1. We love each other even when things are stressful.
2. Being married to your dad has taught me how to be a more patient person.
3. Next time, he probably won't dare touch my iPhone.

Love you.

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…
