i just feel hot.  today is one of those days.  i don't normally do this, but i decided to take a picture of myself in my elongating mirror- just to emphasize how gorgeous i feel. here's my look, and here are some equally beautiful sunflowers that ahlin brought me last week.

"first day of spring" noah & the whale

It's the first day of spring
And my life is starting over again
The trees grow, the river flows
And its water will wash away my sins
For I do believe that everyone has one chance
To F&*k up their lives
But like a cut down tree, I will rise again
And I'll be bigger and stronger than ever before

For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back

There's a hope in every new seed
And every flower that grows upon the earth
And though I love you, and you know that
Well I no longer know what that's worth

But I'll come back to you in a year or so
And I'll rebuild, be ready to become
Oh the person, you believed in
Oh the person, that you used to love

For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back

I love my mother.  She is the greatest thing in my life.  I have no idea what I would do or where I would be if she was not the amazing lady that she is.  I love her sense of wonder and the way she enjoys discovering new things.  I loved being home when she'd take us all around London, showing us things that she loves.  I love how she shows us her love for us and for the Lord.  Her testimony is so strong, and just by talking with her, I can see that.  I love her sense of hard work and service.  I know these are things that I can incorporate into my own life.  I love that she is so focused and driven.  When she has a goal, she follows through.  She always does her morning exercise and stretches.  She always does her scripture study.  She is truly an amazing woman.  She is the inspiration for me when I think about being a mother.

So, thank you mom.  Thank you for everything.
