Week five and six

Sorry for those who looked for the post last week I had no internet last Sunday.

I went to Toowoomba last Saturday last week. I had a lovely time catching up with Family and friends. I froze, I should have known it would have been cold It is always cold. Growing up we lived at Murphy's Creek and we always had to take an extra jumper or jacket as it would always be colder in Toowoomba. I went to Toowoomba to see Ashley as he moved there.

I had a lovely time catching up with friends I hadn't seen for about four years. Spent a lovely but very cold day in the park o Monday with my friend Christine listening to jazz music and enjoying all the flowers. What a lovely day, I used to do that all the time with Christine when I used to live in Toowoomba. Christine's husband plays in a Jazz quartet.

I was driving back to from the Temple on Wednesday and was thinking to myself that I could be a city Girl. I was driving by a big block of apartments thinking that I could be happy living in a place like that in the city. As a child I always wanted to live in Sydney. I think as I got older I like the more quiet life. I could get used to the city life. I don't know if I could ever get used to the traffic though. It would be nice to go to a show or to a concert. The city always has something happening. I like that. To be close to everything is nice too.

The shops are so different in the city too compared to Hervey Bay. Woolworths has a sushi bar and Coles has a cafe inside the stores. They are different. Just some of the things they stock are different. I have even noticed that with Big W and Target they stock different things.

Haven't been up to too much. I work in the Temple go to the shops, mostly to get dinner and then go to my room and sleep. Weeks have been going by so quickly. I do really enjoy being in the Temple. I love feeling of the spirit there. The work of the Lord is so important.

My Aunty Pat passed away this week. She was a beautiful person who I loved. We were always sending time with her and my Grandmother. I loved her. Till we meet again Aunty Pat.

Have a lovely week everyone.

Week 4

Hi All,

A few friends have phoned me this week and it has been nice to chat with them and catch up. I miss all my friends and it was nice to speak with them this week.

Shouted myself to the movies this week to see the movie 'If I Stay' This movie made me think about alot of things. The main character was involved in a car accident with the rest of her family. She is seventeen and has her whole life in front of her. She had to make the choice whether or not she would go back and live her life without her immediate family. She wanted to go with her family but realized that life was worth living and she had to live.  Life is so precious and we have to live each day as though it is our last. Make the most of each day. Not go and do something spectacular each day or we would never do again. Life is not easy but we just need to remember that we are never alone and we can do our best each day. Just live each day and remember each minute of our life here on earth is a gift and we are here to experience this life and to live each and every day with no regrets and to live it to the best of our ability at the time. Good movie go and see it if you have that chance.

I have had a lovely week in the Temple this week. On Wednesday I went to the temple with a friend who hadn't been for years that was a special day to go and spend that time with her doing an endowment session. The Temple is such a nice place to go and feel of the spirit. It is so peaceful.

I have met so many people at that Temple who have had connections with my Mother. A few Sisters grew up with her in the same ward and another Sister knew my parents in Campbelltown Ward I remember that family, their son was the same age as me.

I went to see my friend Kathy who I have known since we were 10. We have been through alot together. I hadn't seen her for about 8 years. Spoken with her a few times but hadn't actually seen her for about 8 yrs. It was nice to see her and her kids grown up now and her Mum. If I wasn't at her place as a kid she was at my place. Then as adults she was always living at my place with her kids.

I have been listening to classical music this week. Can't get enough of it. I would stear clear of classical. Wasn't really interested in it. I am an 80's girl and love the 80's music. Now I can't get enough of the classical music. Just love it. I have been listening to Bach, Vivaldi and Handles water music and today Chopin. Love them all. They are so relaxing. Just love it.

I was driving through the City on Saturday night listening to Vivaldi Four Seasons and seeing all the city lights haven't seen anything like it in such a long time. I was trying to drive and all I wanted to do was look around and view all the lights. Lights just sparkling over everything. Everything was lit up with lights. It was such a distraction, it took every effort to keep my eyes on the road. You all know how I love things that sparkle, now this was a whole city that was sparkling.

Have a great week my Friends and remember to make the most of each day. Live it to the best of your ability. We can always find something positive in each and every day.
Love you all

Week Three

Moved place this week. Moved from Underwood to Indooroopilly. A lot nicer area to live. Moved in with a lovely older lady in her 70's. I am grateful for the roof over my head.

I have been busy this week working in the Temple every day. Another lovely week working in the Temple. I was passed off two different things this week. I love the spirit in the Temple but the people who work there are still just people.

I have been doing my daily running/walking each day. It is very hilly where I am living and it gives me a good workout. Got a lovely view of the city through a street on the top of the hill this week. It was still dark and the city was all lit up. It certainly is a different view than Hervey Bay. I will try and get a picture one morning.

Went for another walk to Southbank and found the Cinema. It is one street back from Southbank. I will have to shout myself to the movies one day. It is nice to walk along the river and to see all the action on the river.

I would like to thank all my friends for the love and support they have given me. They encourage me to keep going. I love them dearly Thank  you.
