Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Super Sad Sunday

Today was not a great day. We've been attending Hawes ward, (the ward that we lived in before we had to foreclose on our house.) WE love this ward so much and have been determined to get our family back into ward boundaries ASAP. Today after church the 1st councilor said he needed to meet with us. He released us from our callings. I just started crying. I couldn't help it. He did say we were not being kicked out of the ward. I guess there are big changes happening next week. Desert Wells ward has been asked to meet with us next Sunday. We're thinking it's because the Desert Wells ward is HUGE and ours in the smallest in the stake. So, rearranging of boundaries is what we suspect. And that's why we think we got released. If the boundaries change..... which new ward do we belong to without an address to place us???
I have loved my calling, serving as secretary in the primary and I really love the amazing women I have served with. I love the Hawes ward and all the awesome families. It's been everything Bran and I have ever prayed for in a ward family. I can't imagine it being changed. My calling and ward was kind of my anchor and helped me stay focused despite all the inconsistency that's been going on with work and our home situation. Now I don't know what to do with myself. We will be attending the double ward sacrament meeting next week to get all the info of true situation and then we'll be going from there.

I HATE change. I don't cope well with big unplanned change.
I do know that Heavenly Father is in charge, and relays his needs to Pres. Monson, and those in Salt Lake and on down the line of priesthood holders who make prayerful plans for changes like this.
It doesn't mean it's easy. Not at all.

It is hard to change from a ward where you really feel that "ward familiness"... I remember Usery Park ward feeling that way to me... but then you move on and each ward has something different and great to offer where we can learn and grow in other ways... be brave sister... there are lots of "sisters" out there to get to know and love!
