hooray for derek! (seriously)

so i'm not one to get all mushy and cheesy (on my blog anyways!!!), but today i have to. derek is taking a final right now, and i'm so proud of him. he's worked so hard and he's been very successful and i'm just so proud of him, and thankful. i haven't done a very good job of showing it. i've been feeling sorry for myself the past couple of days....or weeks!! i've just been being very pessimistic. so this morning i woke up and decided to have a new attitude. i've been kinda ornery with derek too...how mean is that when it's finals time?! anyways...when derek first started school he decided he wasn't going to study on sundays. so even though he had a final this morning he didn't study at all yesterday. instead we went to church, he went home teaching, and then to a priesthood training meeting. i know he will get the grades he wants, because every time we've sacrificed just the tiniest little bit we always get blessed SO MUCH. so anyway, i just wanted to public praise derek for doing so well in school, and thank him for sticking to his goal of not studying on sundays. i also need to thank Heavenly Father for always taking such good care of us. He's never failed us...even when we didn't necessarily deserve His help.

What are you talking about Angie, you haven't been onery at all. You have been completely optimistic. You need to give yourself more credit.

We all have moments (some more than others), but you did a really nice post about your husband. I doubt you're as ornery as you say you are!

I love Shauna's comment. YEA for Derek, and sometimes we need to feel sorry for ourselves, it's just part of being a mom. I'm so sorry that it's snowing, I'm not thrilled either. Lucky it melts fast! Can't wait to see you.
