Year in Review Stuff

2009 was hands down the worst year of my life.

I've never cried so much in my entire 23 years combined. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say
I'm seriously not exaggerating there.

While I don't believe there was a ultimate reason we had to endure so much
I am not above saying I learned something from it all.

This year I came to a complete understanding of how much my Heavenly Father loves me. What a comfort that has been. I've come to appreciate the atonement more than I can even express. My loving Heavenly Father sent His Son to not only die for my sins but suffer for my sorrows. On days when I feel like I can't go on I remember that He's been there. When nobody quite understands my pain I remember that He felt it. When I cry myself to sleep I remember that He ached and continues to ache for me. For this I am grateful.

Dear 2010, Be nice to me. I'm fragile.
