To Have Peace and Happiness

Going to a church school you would think I would be on top of going to all of the CES Firesides.

Sadly, I'm not. Usually I groan and turn the other way, finding some other thing to replace going and sitting to another discussion on what most likely be marriage.

I'm so glad I did not miss this one. This was broadcasted at the beginning of the semester.

I'm not going to lie, it was a little awkward due to the fact that I was sitting next to Layne (at the time we were dating), and his brother Kirk, and that yes this was another talk on marriage. But I will be the first to admit, I needed to hear this. The message was very clear. I am now going to admit; I am ready to settle down and get married. I felt it very strong as I sat there listening. This was probably why it was so awkward sitting next to the guy who you are dating and have only been dating for a short time. Sadly he is now in another state. Ok. Moving on.

My emotions were not in check as I sat in the Hinckley building, listening to this wonderful man. The stories shared were touching. This is a man who loved his wife, and family. He has had his fair share of challenges, and it was really inspirational. One of the things he said stuck with me: "It is so good to be alive."

Tears were constantly running down my cheeks with each story. I had to turn away a few times so that Layne and Kirk could not see that I was crying.

I really wish that a hard copy was available. Actually reading through this fireside would be something that I would enjoy and ponder on. I hope you all enjoy this wonderful message... and those of you who have a hard time keeping your emotions in check; I suggest tissues.
