Not that it doesn't hurt !!!
I have a down day today because of my companion having mouth surgery yesterday it was a 31/2 hr ordeal so we've been icing lots but she never went to sleep until 5:30 am this morning, not cause she was in pain but just couldn't sleep. The sun is shining today & that seems good it's been pretty rainy the last week or two & more rain tomorrow. I've heard people saying Houston has had lots of damage but where I'm at it's been good. A jogger got murdered last week & then a couple of days later his wife committed suicide she couldn't live without him. It's made me think a lot about our beliefs & I'm so thankful for the foundation that I have. Not that it doesn't hurt & there is suffering that goes with loosing someone you love but we know it's not the end just a little bump in your road of life & you will see your loved ones again someday. There's been two more people attacked also this week so things are pretty active down here in Texas or at least where I'm planted. We don't watch tv so we just hear it from different people we visit with. I've met more people who have roots in Rich County & most everyone I've met knows or has been to Bear Lake, it really is a small world. Someone told me Thanksgiving is coming right up, I can't believe how fast time flies & my time is really slipping by. So many thoughts & emotions go through your head as I think about home,friends, family & quiet but then I think of all the wonderful people I love here in Texas & I'm torn. I have so much gratitude in my heart for all the Lord has taught me, it all hasn't been easy but he's been very patient with me. Lets everyone out there just stop for a few minutes & count your blessings & thank the dear Lord for the good & for the hard things in our lives cause that's where the growth comes from. My thought for the week. On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possible endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% & that's good. My scripture is D & C chapter 4 all missionaries are supposed to memorize this section I love it, have a great week & we'll see ya when the roses bloom. Sister Putnam
