The key to enjoying children is to be a child yourself.

Ready, set, thoughtpurge.
Some thoughts from the last couple of months:

Dear world, sometimes living the standards of a Latter-Day Saint can be incredibly isolating.
Toto, we're not in Rexburg anymore.

Abby: You're the greatest aunt ever! You can even make CLEANING fun!

Solitude is sometimes as simple as internal silence.

The hardest thing about being in Washington is being here.

I feel like we are being prepared for each other. I've never been so certain about something so uncertain.

Sometimes when sad things happen to my friends, I cry about it like they are my own children.

Sometimes I don't even feel like a real person, because life feels like a dream.

Music is not my life, but music saves my life.

I don't feel like I'm missing out on things in Utah (&Idaho), even though I am missing things in Utah (&Idaho). That's the good news. What that says to me is that I am in the right place.

This is KEY to my happiness right now: As long as I am serving, I fit.

I can't shut the door because it was never open. But I swear I can see through it like it was never there.

"I miss you" never gets old as long as you mean it.

Here's to love, in all its infinite varieties.

This: "The idea hovered and shimmered delicately, like a soap bubble, and she dared not even look at it directly in case it burst. But she was familiar with the way of ideas, and she let it shimmer, looking away, thinking about something else."
Plus faith.
Equals this: "When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream." -Paulo Coelho

The only person who doesn't believe in him is himself.

The key to enjoying children is to be a child yourself.

Sometimes all you need is a bathroom stall and a silent prayer to get you through the day.

Something about a full tank of gas makes me want to drive until it's empty.

"I'm finally catching on to it, the past is just a conduit."

I want to marry someone like George Washington.

Anyone get anything out of that?
