Before I get into what I've been thinking about lately I want to tell you that both Nathan and I auditioned for Pickleville Playhouse(in bear lake)! It's a fun western playhouse that you can also get a western cookout dinner before the show. They are performing 2 shows this summer. One is a mellow drama called El Bandito Rides Again which is written by a guy in our ward. He's young and talented and does a fantastic job writing the script and music for it! It is one HALARIOUS show! The other show they are doing is Crazy For You from broadway! It's a fun show and I hopwe get to be in it! Nathan and I both made call backs and went through a long callback process of dancing and acting. There was a lot of great talent there and I felt pretty cool acting and singing with such talented people! This is so on my bucket list to be in a play and even better that it could hopefully be in a playhouse that plays the whole summer long! We will find out by the end of next week if we got a part in the play or not.

O.K. so I was reading a friends blog today and came across this video. Well, actually it's a girl who Nate use to date and her and her hubby are struggling with infertility and I have other friends who suffer from infertility as well. Then I got to thinking that I have 3 beautiful, wonderful, gorgeous sons!!! Yes they came fast and close together but I LOVE it!! I don't have any problem with it they are my life! This all made me think about when I am talking to someone and tell them that I have three boys (in 4 and a half years) and they make comments about how I am a fertile mertile or how bold it was of me to do that or "what were you thinking?" I've decided from now on I will let them know that I am proud that I have 3 sons and I wouldn't have any other way instead of letting them make thier comments and wishing, later, that I would've said something. I am grateful everyday for my children and I ache and feel for the couples that aren't able to concieve...I can't imagine the aching, the longing, the dissapointment, the hurt, the challenges and much, much more that they go through.- Also I don't want to forget the girls and guys that make such a selfless decision to place thier babies for adoption!-


So this week a young 16 year old boy passed away. I do not personally know him but my manager does and he and his brothers use to come in to Dollar Cuts and get thier hair cut and they also use to do something with flyers and Dollar Cuts(I'm not too sure). But this young boy had just gotten his license and on this particular night he got in a fight with his mom and took off in the family suburban. The mom called police concerned for her son and when the police man found a vehicle matching the descrption that the mom had given, the police man turned on his lights and attempted to pull him over. At that point the young boy sped up and tried to elude the officer and took a right turn going aroung 65-75 pmh causing the vehicle to roll 5-6 times and he was ejected halfway through the rolls (he later died in SLC). This young boy's father happened to be in Colorado at the time and couldn't fly home to see his dying son because of a snow storm so he rented a car and attempted to make this long and grueling trip home by car through stromy weather. He made it to Wyoming and was not able to go further due to road closures. This poor family is seperated in this time of grief and there is nothing they can do but wait for the weather to clear up. Well, the funeral was Saturday and my manager told me of a some things that were said and this next bit I about to tell you struck me so hard! (I will try to tell it to the best of my knowledge) About 2 years ago this couple had a premonition that they would lose a son...then about a week or so prior to this 16 your boy dying this father had another premonition that they would lose a son and it was going to be soon. This premonition was so strong that he collapsed to the floor and sobbed! He went on to say that everynight he and his wife pray to the Lord that they will do ANYTHING for the Lord's will to be done, they will do anything to do His work, that they are committed to him! And as this father was in colorado and heard the news of the accident and can't fly out to his family so he rents a car trying to get home... alone.... through threcherous blizzardy conditions aching for his son,his wife, his family, knowing that they are trying to keep his son on life support till he gets there.... this voice said to him, "you said anything!" I believe they had to let his son go before he got there. People have asked what they can do for the family and the only thing that he asks is that you find one thing to make better in your life...one thing to fix/ to work on and write them about it and so they can read it and help cope with the loss of thier son.
How many times do we say we will do anything for the Lord or 'make a deal' or whatever it may be and we don't hold our end of the bargain? What about our spiritual commitments that we have made with the Lord? Again, as I posted in an earlier post, may we have the courage to do what is right and may we be blessed with the courage to accept His will!
