Dear Never Forgotten,

3.07.2012

You know those days when you are just down in the dumps? And you just want to cry? Or have someone wring out the inside of your head so it feels clear? When the only thing that you think will help is venting and complaining to everyone around you but after you let it all out you just feel worse for being a whiner? Okay... so maybe you don't... but today is one of those days. And I hate to point out the negatives... but we all have our days. For some reason things have just been hard the last couple days. Maybe it is because I am thinking about Miss Idaho coming up and how much work I need to do if I want to really succeed this year. Maybe it is because my boyfriend is going away for an entire week (again). Maybe it is because I feel sick a lot and just want to sleep even though I should be working out, cleaning my room, or doing some other productive thing.

One thing is for sure, I am not blogging this right now for you to feel sad for me. I am blogging this right now because I feel like I need to remind you of how lucky and loved we all are. I took a break to read a few blogs in hopes of finding out some more about KONY 2012 from someone's blog. But instead I stumbled across a small reminder of just how LUCKY I am in my friend Ashley's blog.


"Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you with an infinite love."

-Pres. Uchtdorf 



I am so grateful to have a Heavenly Father who not only loves me, but cares about me and my happiness. I am grateful to a family that has taught me of my divine nature. It is so easy to forget blessings and the Lord's hand in my life when I look for the negative, so I am grateful for the people around me that remind me of the positive. For the encouraging words from every direction always. I know I am a daughter of God, and he sees so many great things in me. He wants me to see those things in myself. I have great worth and I can accomplish so many things. Life is good. And I am never forgotten. And neither are you.

Love,
Deidre
