What a great week, so many blessings!

This has been one of the hardest, but most wonderful weeks that I've had in a while! First of all, General Conference last weekend was perfect! I really enjoyed it and I'm loving President Monson more and more very time I hear him speak! While we were listening to conference my mother in-law taught me how to do hand embroiderery; I've just always done it on a sewing machines so this was something kind of fun to keep my hands busy during conference. This is what I made...

On Monday, I had to take my normal trip to Payson and as soon as I got to the school up there my car started making a horrible sound. I took it to Big-O just to have them look around and they were a little confused about what was going on but said I could drive back home to Phoenix and then just have somebody look at it. I decided to skip class Tuesday so I wasn't driving back in the dark and I came back first thing Tuesday morning. After the guys at the VW shop took a little drive and looked around they told me I was lucky to make it down the mountain. (I, however knew it wasn't luck I had said my prayers and I was being watched over.) They told me that the front right engine block had broken and my engine was hanging down 8 inches lower than it should. This pushed the power steering line into one of the radiator fans and broke it. I didn't even know there was 8 inches for an engine in a VW Beetle to drop without being in the ground! So needless to say I was very blessed to make it home safely!

On Wednesday, I took my test to become an LPN. There's a minimum of 85 questions and a maximum of 205. The test can shut off any time once they've fugured out if your qualified or not. I was so nervous I felt like I had gotten the hardest questions and then when I pressed next after 32 minutes of testing and my 86th or 87th question, my screen went blank and it was over! I wanted to cry! I thought for sure that I was just that dumb that I wan't going to get any more questions to prove myself. I worried for two days while checking the website to see that the reults were not ready and then yesterday at 6:15 in the morning while I was on my way to clinicals, I found out from Logan who looked it up for me that I...PASSED! I was so excited and Logan was too! He was so sweet to me! When I got home from clinicals last night, my sweet husband took me to dinner and gave me these beautiful flowers!

I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful, supportive, and faithful husband. Logan, thank you for being everything I could have ever asked for and more. You are my eternal sweetheart and I'm so grateful to be your wife!
