I am now a HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHER IN THE STATE OF IDAHO.!!!!! YEAH!!!! I passed the Praxis II and am very excited.
This is the closest I have felt to dad in the last 7 months. I can feel his spirit. I miss him so much. I remember him at my wedding being my "flower girl." I'll never forget that. "To "BELIEVE" is to have faith in." Sometimes it is really hard to BELIEVE and have faith in. I want every one who reads this to know that I have a testimony of the gospel. I love it with all my heart. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that President Monson is a Prophet of God. I know all of these things, but why is it so hard to do everything you need to.
I miss you all. I can't wait to see all of you again. It seems like a long time since I have seen any of you. I guess I just need to make it a priority to get up to my mom's place. Everyone have a great day. Hopefully I will see you soon.

I really don't know what to say in this "post." I am just numb. I am somebody who misses her dad a lot. I wish I could just go and give my dad a hug.
One thing I don't regret though is that I spent a lot of time with my dad before he passed on. We went on rides to the Dry Farm where he grew up, we would go to Wendy's and get Frosty's, but the most important thing we did was we talked. We talked about everything. Even though he would say, "Now what were we talking about." He had such good advice on everything from how to live your life fully, to how to have the best and most fulfilled marriage. If I had questions about life I knew my dad would steer me in the right direction even if I had to repeat the question over and over. My dad was so full of wisdom, he would go out of his way to help anyone he could. One of the best things about dad was his sense of humor. He was alway laughing at a joke or telling a joke.
I know in my heart he is better off where he is at. It is just that my heart is breaking right now and longing to be with him. He was a great man, and I hope that I can make my mom and him proud of me so I will be worthy to be with them in the eternities.

In my heart I know he doesn't want to live this way. If he could express himself he would say let me go. How do I say good-bye. The only thing that gives me solace is the knowledge that we are an "Eternal Family," and that I have an understanding husband. This picture was taken when he was at a better stage of his Alzheimer's disease and cancer.
I love my mom so much. I don't know how she makes it, but she is always turning to our Heavenly Father. She is a wonderful example to me. I have wonderful parents, and a wonderful family. I just plan to continue to turn to my Heavenly Father and Savior. I know my "Elder Brother" has experienced everything so I know he knows how I am feeling. I hope we all remember our Savior knows what we are going through.
