Well, its about time that I wrote a sappy "what blessings" post. After all, it is my second one already.
Well, yesterday found me working for about 12 hours straight, half of it not being paid for though as it is just an internship, I'm not complaining though, it is a great opportunity. They day before though, was a bright little nugget of happy sunshine after a few weeks of tumultuous overcast in the sojourn that is known as life. Haha, that was very fake. Anyway, I didn't have to go to work on Monday, but our neighbors from Boston called us over to help them out because they are, sadly, going to move away back to Boston. So we go into their kitchen and they tell us to just take anything and everything that we want from their fridge or cupboards cause if we don't they will all just go to waste. So we ransacked their whole kitchen and we walked away with SO MUCH FOOD!! Quoting Melissa, "It's like Christmas!!" she said, as we tried to fit all of the new food into our refrigerator and cupboard. We actually couldn't fit everything that we were given and I was reminded of the promise we are given from paying our tithing in Malachi: "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." Wow, and how a wow it was that we literally did not have room enough to receive it.
Not only that, but Melissa was given an opportunity to do something that she is very excited for. That is to teach dancing! If you were to ask her what her favorite things to do are, she would put dancing at the top; after all, we met at a dance on campus! She ran into quite a few unfruitful interviews, but now she has the opportunity to be an influential teacher for the community. I am so proud of her resilience in not giving up after so long of trying, she tried really hard to get a job.
We are going to Island Park up in Idaho in about 3 hours so I will put up some pictures!
