I remember when I was living in China, I would check every morning to see if I got an email from someone in my family. I was patiently (okay not so patiently) waiting to hear from them. Any one of them! When I'd see I finally got one, I would be filled with happiness. They're letters would tell of home and all that was going on in my absence, and of course encouragement! The best times were actually when I got a letter or package in the mail. Being able to rip open an envelope or a package and find the treasures inside! Some days when I just didn't know if I could make it through the day, I would be lifted by my letters and emails from home and be able to push forward and continue on my amazing journey.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf once said,

BETTER THAN WE KNOW OURSELVES!
We can discover more of what He knows about us
as we read and study our patriarchal blessings.
There are lots of different ways to study your blessing.
Find one that works for you and study it!
Discover things about yourself that
you never knew!
P.S. I'm a little bit behind with my TAM postings on my personal blog (livingincrescendo.blogspot.com),
but I am committed to catching up in the next couple of days!
