My Missionary is such a hard worker!

A friend posted this today!

A mission equals 7300 hours of hard work!!!

Just for your comparison -

You would have to attend church for 46 years (at 3 hours every Sunday), never missing a Sunday block, to equal the time spent on a mission.
You would have to be a perfect seminary student and never miss a single day for 54 years (at 50 minutes every day) to equal one mission.

You would need to obtain three Bachelors Degrees (4944 hours), three Masters degrees (1074 hours), and three Doctorate degrees (1290 hours), to equal the time spent on a mission.

Happy Father's day, Dad!

I pretty much have the coolest dad in the world! I am so lucky that he stuck around and took care of our family so well. He danced with me when I was young, taught me how to ride a bike, helped me in school, taught me how to drive a car, and has guided me in many decisions (boys, life, etc.) He has always been there for my family, and I am eternally grateful for that. I hope one day I can be sealed to him for all of the eternities.

Last but definately not least, Happy Father's Day to my Heavenly Father. Before I became a member, I didnt even realize that I had a Father in Heaven. With the knowledge that I do have one comes great happiness and joy.

Oh no. It has happened. I never thought it would! Seriously, sometimes I HATE being in Oceanside. It brings back memories and puts people back into my life that shouldnt be here. They were out of my life for a reason and they should stay that way. What the heck. I hate that I always am thinking, "Well, you have to see how it goes, give em a chance..." etc. I seriously wish that I could have some kind of confirmation right now. I hate not knowing. What is my life right now. help.

Del Mar Fair :)

Sydney, Palina, Alex, and I went to the Del Mar Fair yesterday! It was so much fun! We had a blast riding the rides and almost dying, looking at the animals, shopping, and of course, eating a fried twinkie (which was really good by the way!!) I had a great time. I wish Sydney didnt have to go back home, but I will see her soon!!

Being a Missionary Girlfriend is:

hard, terrible, long, happy, fun, boring, lonely, special, spiritual, and definately takes a certain kind of girl to come out successful. Good thing I can do this and I have thee most amazing guy to wait for!! :)

"im really striving to become more like the savior so i can not only be a better person, but be a better boyfriend and future husband to you.....i remember in pres monson's talk about living in a way that would make our spouse want to keep us....and so the thought of ever losing you frightens me sooo much, and so i strive to be the best that i can to make sure that i have you forever! you srsly mean everything to me baby, and even tho this mission and sacrificing my 2 years of being with you is the hardest thing i ever had to do in my entire life, i know it will be worth it when i have you in front of me, kneeling at the altar of the beautiful san diego temple ready to make the new and everlasting covenant....thats my dream!!! i love you baby!"-Elder Flores

Sometimes I wonder if there is such a thing as a "better guy" than Jordan. Result: NOPE!!!

An Amazing Story for an Amazing Sunday :)

The following event took place in a ward in Salt Lake City in 1974. It occurred during Sacrament Meeting and was told to me by a Regional Representative of the twelve, who was in the meeting. A young man, just before leaving on his mission, stood in Sacrament Meeting and bore, in essence, the following testimony. "My Brothers and Sisters, as you know, during the past few weeks I have been awaiting my mission call. During the time I was waiting I had a dream I was in the pre-existence and was awaiting my call to come to earth. I was filled the same excitement and anticipation that I had before I received my mission call. In my dream, I was talking to a friend. He was a very dear friend, and I felt a special closeness to him, even though I've never met him in this life. As we talked, a messenger came and gave me a letter. I knew it was my call to go to earth. In great excitement my friend and I opened the letter I gave it to him and asked him to read it aloud. The letter said: You have been called to earth in a special time and to a special land. You will be born into the true church, and you will have the priesthood of God in your home. You will be raised with many advantages and many blessings. You will be born in a land of plenty-a land of freedom. You will go to earth in the United States of America. "My friend and I rejoiced as we read my call. And while we rejoiced, the messenger returned. This time he had a letter for my friend. We knew it was his call to earth. My friend gave me the letter to read aloud. The letter said: You have been called to go to earth in circumstances of poverty and strife. You will not be raised in the true church. Many hardships will attend your life. Your land will be fraught with political and social difficulties which will hinder the word of the Lord. You will be born in Costa Rica. We wept, my friend and I as we read his call. And my friend looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "when we are down on earth, you in your choice land and me in Costa Rica, my friend, come and find me." Then this young missionary, with tears in his own eyes, said, "Brothers and Sisters, I have received my mission call. I am going to Costa Rica. There is a special sequel to this story. About a year after this Sacrament Meeting, the Bishop to this Ward received a letter form the Missionary in Costa Rica. The letter had one sheet of paper in it, and on the sheet was written in inch-high letter four word: I FOUND MY FRIEND. (From the Journal of Floyd A. Hill.)

I love that members of the Church have the oppurtunity to serve missions :)

Hmm....Kinda Weird

So today, I spent the day with my mom (WOOHOO i love her!!). We went shopping and blah blah blah. Well of course we start talking about Jordan, because he is my favorite subject. Now keep in mind, she has been supportive of us since day 1 and she loves him alot. So we were talking, and then randomly she says, "Katy, what happens if it doesnt work out? Like you break up, there's no spark, or someone gets hurt or something?" I was kind of stunned. I didn't know what to say! Eventually, I said, "Well then, I'll probably throw myself off a cliff." BAD ANSWER. She literally freaked out, saying that she knew I was going to say that, (why did u ask then??), and that it is not acceptable. I quickly reassured her that I wouldnt REALLY do that, but honestly I didnt even reassure myself. I seriously think I would want to jump off a cliff if it didnt work out haha. But anyways, it kind of caught me off guard. :/

Good Days :)

So basically I have had some really good days lately. The summertime is going soooo slowww but at least I am content :)

Then, my friends and I decided to make home-made popscicles. We chopped up strawberries, made lemonade, and then froze it :) This is Alex holding the finished product!

Finally, Alex, Palina, and I made tie dye shirts to wear to the Del Mar Fair next week. (from left to right, Alex, Katy, Palina)

Everything's changing...except 1 thing :)

So in these past ten months, my world has been dumped completely upside down. I have changed SO much. But i dont really like to think of it as "change." To me, its more of a "modification." I have grown up...and I mean REALLY grown up. I have so much more patience, understanding, and compassion. I never knew that someone could change so much in a matter of months. I have had my ups and downs, but one thing that has NEVER changed or faultered is my undying love for Jordan. Seriously, every single week I love him more. Even though I havent seen him in 42 weeks, when we email and write letters, it feels like I just hung out with him yesterday. I really miss my best friend, but the blessings that I have seen coming forth because of his willingness to serve the Lord are AMAZING. His family has been so blessed and i'm always excited when I get included in those special days, like when his dad got baptized!! :)

I bought this sticker for my wall today and I thought it worked perfectly!!It is SO true! "Things" are so temporal and don't last forever. But an eternal love with an eternal companion will <3 OH and happy 15 months baby!!
