Smashing Details from This Week


Honestly, my brain's still a bit fuzzy.  That side-effect I would've expected would have faded by now, since the Lupron injections have been over for more than a month now.  That junk should be out of my system by now.  I will say, however, that the craziness has lessened.

Despite the hormones no longer pumping through my veins, my memory's still fogged.  Only thing I can figure is that its still a bit jumbled from the accident.  Occasionally there are still headaches... but those symptoms & a little bit of residual back stuff is all I think is left from April.  So that's good news.

The reason I mention all this is simply because I cannot recall what I've done this week besides 4 things.  Mind you, I'm sure TONS had occurred, since my calendar is always jam-packed.  However what has been most memorable has obviously been on the skinny side.

1)  I spoke about Personal Revelation in Sacrament Meeting last Sunday.  I was a nervous wreck for all the prep time, but when it came time to take my place behind the mic, all my nerves settled & I believe the Holy Ghost directed the rest from there.  Actually, I don't just believe that, I KNOW that.  I'd share my talk here, however I cannot duplicate it.  But I can share with you the sources I used:  the 9th Article of Faith, "Be Your Best Self" by Thomas S. Monson, the Bible Dictionary's entry on "revelation", "How to Obtain Revelation and Inspiration for Your Personal Life" by Richard G. Scott, "God Wants a Powerful People" by Sheri Dew, Matthew 16:16-18, D&C 18:10, D&C 88:121; Moses 1:39, plus additional quotes from Marion G. Romney, Richard G. Scott, and Spencer W. Kimball.


“Our Heavenly Father did not put us on earth to fail but to succeed gloriously…Sometimes we unwisely try to face life by depending on our own experience and capacity. It is much wiser for us to seek through prayer and divine inspiration to know what to do. Our obedience assures that when required, we can qualify for divine power to accomplish an inspired objective."  -Elder Richard G. Scott, LDS General Conference April 2012.

2)  I shuttled Mini-Me back & forth like crazy into town for Driver's Ed classes, drives with one of her instructors, and to bid farewell to her BFF who will be a foreign exchange student in Germany for the next 6 months!  (They are just growing up too quickly for my mama-heart.)  There has been some hyperventilation on Mini-Me's part, and tears for both of them.  But it'll be a strength-building experience for both of them to stand on their own... and at least it'll only be 6 months!  :)

3)  I helped out at my old orthodontic office for a morning.  It was a zoo, we were so incredibly booked with school just around the corner!  Yet it was great to get in some belly-laughs with my office & clinic girls.  Smiles & laughs make the soul stronger, so when storms come they're easier to weather through.

4)  Mr LKP was my glamorous assistant on THE best senior shoot!  (Mini-Me is usually my stand-by assistant, but she was in driver's ed that night.)  This girl we were working with was a photog's dream come true.  She moved so easily and with such poise, that really every single of the 250 shots were phenomenal shots!  You should definitely check out her TWO preview posts over at www.latchkeyphotography.com

So there you have it.  Busy week.  More important than busy, it's been a very fulfilling week!  Hope yours has been fulfilling as well.  ::hugs::
