A Thankful Heart #4 (round 2)

Saturday, November 30, 2013
Has it really already been another week?
Is December 1st really tomorrow?
Does Elder Moore honestly come home in 33 days??
(had to slip that one in there somehow)
I can't believe how fast time flies.
I've been dreading this week since July.
Okay not the whole week... just Friday.
Black Friday
The mall is opened on Thanksgiving at 8 pm and they are calling it grey Thursday.
Are you kidding me?
My mom said that pretty soon they are gonna have off white Wednesday too.
Hahaha love that woman.
My 4 am shift truly wasn't that bad though.
Being awake for 22 hours... that wasn't that bad either.
And then being with my best friend in the House of The Lord, made for a pretty great Friday. 
And now onto those thankful things:

1) Service
(Whether I'm serving someone or being served, I am so grateful for service all together. After church 2 weeks ago I told my friend's boyfriend about some car issues I was having. He got up right away and went to go check things out in his nice white shirt. He rolled his sleeves up and immediately found the problem. He did everything he could to fix things up enough for me to get around for the rest of the day. Then I was able to get more help later on in the week to get my car all fixed up. I'm so grateful for the wonderful people who were able to help me. Doing service is an amazing thing and blesses so many people. There are always people in need and it is a wonderful thing when you make time to help others. We become more like the Savior when we help others. I wish I would have caught on to how important service is earlier on in life.)

2) Letters and Emails
(What would I have done these past 23 months without letters and emails? Seriously, as you can tell from my last post they really do make my world go round. I fall deeper in love my sweet Hunter every single time I open a letter or an email. There is something so special about communicating only through letters and emails. Our true feelings come out and we are able to demonstrate our love through our words. Although I am absolutely counting down the days until we can actually speak in person, I will cherish those letters and emails for the rest of my life. Thank you for knowing just how to make my day Elder Moore. I sure do love you and appreciate all your letters and emails)

3) The Temple
(Goodness I love the temple. I am so grateful that I live so close to such a wonderful place. And let's be honest, the San Diego Temple is absolutely the most beautiful temple of all time :) I love when people ask me if I've been to "The pretty white castle on the 15." Why yes, I have! And my prince charming is going to take us to our castle so that we can be sealed for time and all eternity. The work that goes on in The House of The Lord is amazing. The spirit that comes over me as I walk through those doors is beyond compare. I'm so grateful that I know I am able to participate in something so important. Partaking in the Lord's work leaves me with an everlasting feeling of pure love and joy. If you have never been to temple grounds, I encourage you to go and take a look at the amazing beauty of the temple. If you have questions, feel free to ask me! Oh, and here's a little video I made a while back on the temple. Oh how I love to see the temple!)

And that is all for now.
Sorry I'm so late.
I guess there really aren't any rules on this though.
I'll be writing the last one soon!
Here's to December!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
