When I went to write my last posts, I realized I had these written as well, but I never posted them:
Here’s a post I started to write after my Christmas phone call with Zach:
Next time I talk to Zach (on Mother’s Day), he’ll be home like 3 weeks later! These 2 years have gone so fast! I remember how, when I was a teenager & my oldest brother served the 1st mission I had ever experienced, it seemed to take FOREVER! It was so hard! But this is not “my first rodeo”, & my brother’s mission was before Skype… at least now u can see them on Skype when they call!
Here’s a post I started to write when Giuli left & I bawled like a baby:
Giuli left today, & I bawled like a baby I am terrible at goodbyes! I get weepy anyway, but if my PBA kicks in, I sob! I hate it! & If I want to speak, I can’t, because my breathing becomes so erratic!
The thing I hate most about PBA is how I give mixed signals. I may laugh at a dirty joke, for example. Not because I think it is funny, but either I “sense” how the person telling the joke feels, I hear laughter, or the emotional response of disgust comes out as laughter instead of tears.
Here’s a post I started to write after I read the New York Times obituary for President Monson:
This part of the New York Times obituary for President Monson ticked me off: “…the church declared same-sex couples to be apostates and restricted their children from baptisms and other rites.” That is not true at all! If u are a kid of gay parents who are living in a way that conflicts with the church’s teaching about eternal families, how can u be baptized, & live peacefully with your parents??? You can’t! The church was being sensitive to what could have been an issue! & it is not like we are against same-sex attraction, but because God has taught us about eternal families, we are encouraged to live in accordance with our beliefs, & unfortunately, a same-sex couple cannot procreateJ, so it is not a lifestyle we promote! But this has absolutely NOTHING to do with ANY prophet! Prophets speak for GOD!
That’s all folks! We are all caught up!
