The Missionary Birthday Boy.

This post is dedicated to my little missionary brother. Happy birthday to the hardest working missionary I know! Elder Matthew Austin Gallego!
Tomorrow you will be turning 20 and I am so sad that I can't be there to share it with you. I cannot even believe that you are going to be 20 years old. It seems like just yesterday that you were stealing my princess purses and playing dress up with me. I miss your smile and your funny little jokes. I miss hearing you quote Hot Rod and The Ringer in every sentence that came out of your mouth. As much as I found it annoying most of the time, I hate to admit, I miss it so much... I miss our long talks about life and the times when you held me in your arms, as I cried over silly things or stupid boys. I just miss YOU. I know that what you are doing is so great and you are blessing so many lives out there is Pennsylvania. They are so lucky to have you. You are changing into such a great young man and I am so proud of the person you are becoming. Know that I will be thinking of you on your special day and that I am giving you hugs and kisses from far away. I can't wait until we are reunited again so that we can create more memories together. I love you and I hope that you have the best birthday ever.
Love, Me

I Wish.

I wish I was on this beach right now with my husband without a worry in the world.

I wish that work didn't exist and didn't have to be something that was consuming my husband's life everyday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. - leaving barley any time for me to spend time with him, let alone see him.

I wish that I could eat whatever I want and not have to worry about it going straight to my butt.

I wish there was world peace and no contention.

I wish that every person in the world could have a loving stable home and have food to eat every day.

I wish everyday could be this day all over again. Pure bliss and no worry in the world.
Wishing for things made me realize one thing and that is to be grateful for what I have! I have been blessed with so much. I mean, but who doesn't wish for things everyday? I know a lot of us do. However, I am happy with my life just the way it is after I think about the poor children and families starving all over the world or other countries always at war with each other. I really do wish we could solve these problems. It breaks my heart. I mean little children would kill for that burger and fries and I am worried about it going to my butt. It makes me realize what has been given to me and how fortunate I am. I am so grateful for everything I have and that I get to wake up every morning to my man. I couldn't ask for anything more. My life is just how it is supposed to be and I am loving it every step of the way .
