Because I'm Happy

Saturday, June 14, 2014
Mostly I'm just writing this post because Hunter is most likely going to be gone for a few more hours and I'm quite bored... (stupid spring semester cramming crazy assignments at the last minute) but also because there a few very little things that just meant a whole lot to me that made me particularly happy. So, why not blog?
Last night I was watching Netflix (I've developed an unhealthy obsession with the show Revolution) because Hunter had to go back to the school (I swear he lives there) to finish a group project. Then there was a knock at the door. I usually don't answer the door when Hunter isn't home, but I looked out the peephole to see some friends! My quiet, boring night of Netflix with myself, turned into Hunter coming home earlier than expected and all of us playing Nertz 'til 1:30 in the morning. Of course hunter won every single round, but we all did pretty well too. I guess haha. I'm just so grateful for the friends we have made here and for the memories we have already created. Tonight we have plans to go to the Orem summer festival. Who knew every city in Utah county does a summer festival?? Guys, I really truly do like Utah.
This morning we went to go clean our church building. We talked to another guy there who thanked me for my remarks in stake conference. I was already feeling pretty happy when we walked outside to see two men from our ward loading up a whole bunch of American flags into a truck. Hunter and I wondered what they could be doing with that many flags, but just continued on our way. As we drove home we noticed that those two men put flags in the yards of our ward members. It was such a cool sight seeing the flags waving in the wind. We got home and noticed they even put one in the grass of our complex. It made me smile thinking that they spent their Saturday morning trying to make other people's day. Well, it worked. I felt so much pride for our country and for being a part of a wonderful ward.

Lastly, I went to check the mail after eating some breakfast. Hidden between the junk mail, grocery store ads, and wells fargo credit card bills, was a little card from an address I didn't recognize. Last Sunday, Hunter and I were asked to speak to the Primary kids during sharing time about temple marriages and making covenants with your spouse and God. Inside that little card was a thank you note from the wonderful woman who asked us to speak. I smiled right as I opened the card and once again felt so grateful for the wonderful people in our ward.
So, there ya have it.
I'm just about as happy as a clam over here.
(who thought of that saying? Are clams even happy?)
All my love,
Aleigh Joy
