After a VERY stressful week that is only half-way over, I only have two words for you: BY GOLLY.
In the past few days I have spent shloads of money, hours and hours of work, and out done myself with stress just to end up with this measly photograph:
A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to help out with Enrichment night with my old ward. I said yes, because she wanted me to show them how to decorate cupcakes, and well...I love cupcakes(Duh.) So, Monday I started buying stuff for the event. Tuesday I kept buying things and then started making the cupcake batter. But Wednesday, after I had continued to buy things, spent five hours making the cupcakes, frosting, and preparing everything, stressing about how much money I had blown and how scared I was to teach all of these people that are far older and wiser than me, got to the church late and THEN realized I had forgotten all the pastry bags --- I was on the verge of tears.
Apparently, I enjoy being overly honest. Anyways....
......Exactly here is when I realized there are two very crucial people in my life.
First. Just then my mom showed up, and after her help cooling me down and telling me I was being stupid, I felt a lot better. I got up there, stuttered the entire presentation, but nonetheless completed it, and then actually enjoyed teaching everyone and seeing them decorate cupcakes. It was a good time.
But I was still exhausted and stressed on the way home because I knew the apartment was the messiest I had ever left it. It was 10:00 as well and I had to get up at six the next morning. I was in a bad mood.
Until I walked in and saw the place spotless and Derek in the hallway standing there, cute as usual. It was so relieving to know I could just go to bed......
There are some people that just know you, know when you need a nudge or when you really just need a hand. Although yesterday shouldn't have been stressful, it really turned out to be. Sometimes I forget that there are people that truly care about me.... but I saw it yesterday and I really appreciated it. Thanks mom and Derek for making a crazy day into a livable one. You guys are the bomb.edu/gov
