Well at least everyone has given up hope of me ever being current with this :)

So I have been thinking that I should definitely write up a new post for my bloggy...thinking is good...actually writing is better I suppose. SO yeah, life is good. Work and church are going well. Those two things tend to take up most of my time. I have recently acquired a puppy. Now I know that everyone is kind of rolling their eyes thinking...oh man Jenny is a sucker for a puppy face...which I am. This puppy however found me not the other way around. Her name is Maggie and she is a Boxer. (Her full name is Maggie Fitzgerald, she is a boxer...get it? Name the movie that comes from) she is super cute. I have taught her how to sit. This next week we are going to work on stay. I have also decided that I am going to fix up the old apartment out behind the shop. It is going to be nice once it is done. :) I got a killer deal on a soaker tub at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I am pretty stoaked about it. I just need to finish getting the materials and then we can start on it. Work is going well. I am liking my new admin position. It is more challenging than the front desk was. Still though it lacks real use of my brain. But it provides the cashola for all of my projects and things. So for the time being it works.

So the past week or so I have been thinking a lot about my mission. I miss it alot. It seems like it was such a short time ago that I was there but then the reality of it sets in that I will have been home for 4 years in Septemeber. In mission time that is like eternity...I loved the experiences that I had and the people that I met. Today I am going to speak in church. It is on the gospel blessing families. As I pulled out my preach my gospel a wave of nostalgia hit me. I was thinking about the families that we taught on my mission and how much the gospel changed their lives. I think of Estella and Paco, Astrid and her family, the Familia Jara and Familia Zuniga. I love those families so much and am so grateful for the opportunity that I had to know them and love them. I miss waking up every day and not thinking about myself. I was able to spend every moment of every day thinking about those that I served and how I could help bring them closer to Christ. I miss it so much.

Phew...anyway...I have to wrap this up so that I can get the rest of my talk written. Hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful spring weather. Love Ya!
