My family and I saw Wicked this past week. Absolutely Love it.
The music, cast, costumes, stage were all magical.
My favorite songs were "Defying Gravity"and "For Good"
While I was at BYU I never really understood why so many people were OBSESSED with Wicked, now I know why. It's a top notch production with characters everyone can relate to. It's smart, funny, and has a Happy Ending.
Mom, Grandma, and me!
I love this quote:
“As we exercise faith in Christ and trust in His promises, we can walk into the dark with the absolute assurance that our pathway will be illuminated—at least far enough to take the next step, and then the next step and the next step.” —Elder David A. Bednar, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
"Never take counsel from your fears" ~Stonewall Jackson
“If clouds are blocking the sun, there will always be a silver lining that reminds me to keep on trying.”

Life is too precious to be miserable. Happiness is a choice. I've learned many life lessons over the past year that have made me a stronger, better more resilient person. I'm grateful for my family and friends who have helped me be better and have challenged me to change.
We cannot control what happens in life, but we can control our reactions. Enduring to the end is a must, enduring well is a choice.
The choices I make determine who I am and who I will be. What happens this year will happen its how I CHOOSE to deal with it that matters.
2012 taught me that Life is a miracle
"It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season—like all the other seasons—is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them." —Lemony Snicket, The Lump of Coal
Cheers to 2013! Let's do this!!
