i told people all the time...

Think about the person you love the most. If you're a parent, think about you child. Can you explain to me how you feel about your child in words?

One of the biggest reasons God gave us a family was to help us understand how He feels about us. He couldn't tell someone and have them write it as scripture in a way that would mean as much to us as letting us experience it ourselves.

Every father or mother I have asked says they can't describe in adequate words the way they feel about their children. Neither can our Heavenly Father. The way He loves us is like the way we love our children. Except it's perfect.

 to introduce this point, mr. ralph waldo emerson...

let me confess: since I've been home, I've been a little off. I've felt totally off balance.
      but after tonight and some seriously journaling (even though I don't love my journal. can't wait to get a new one. any suggestions as to where?) I recognized a few key things. That are going to make me happier in the coming days.

Alright. Seriously I am wasting time. I hate that. But its the weekend. I can do what I want, right?
