Back in the game

You know...every now & again when one of my froggers (friends that are bloggers) slips away from the blogging community I get concerned...are they ok? Are they too busy to blog? What's going on in their lives? Once they've updated their blog my mind is at ease one more time and I feel that I can breathe again. Ok....I'm totally kidding...in a way....I mean, I DO wonder what people are up to and how they're doing but I don't obsess about it I promise. Anyway.....YOU GUYS!!!!! It's been about 2 1/2 months since I could be able to call myself a blogger. I had a little "hiccup" with life but everything smoothed out and I'm back in the game!
Let me re-cap just a bit....Went down to New Zealand aka the land of the Long White Cloud, while in NZ my Aunty told me she would be taking me with her to Samoa (no complaints here)...while in Samoa...received 2 proposals of marriage (turned them down..sadly), fell in LOVE with the country, people, and beaches, cried when I had to leave, and never once complained about the heat. I spent a few days in Australia with one of my cousins....wow! SO MUCH FUN! I had so many experiences and adventures that I never would have had if things didn't work out the way they did. I ended up staying in NZ longer than I expected (again...no complaints) made some friendships that I will never take for granted, and met a lot of people I NEVER thought I'd be able to live without. I got home a few weeks ago just in time for General Conference. I went down to Las Vegas this past weekend...which I will be blogging about soon. I feel like a new person...I am a new person. I can't tell you all the small "realizations" I've gained in the past 3 months. I am so grateful for the family and friends that I have been blessed with....if you're reading this I'm talking about you. No this is not a "grat-imony" but I just can't help being thankful. Life looks good! Cheers!

You can never over express your thanks or be too grateful for things big and small in your life! I'm so glad you are back up and running! Now go and bring back that big handsome rugby player of yours from New Zealand so we can meet him already! *winks*

WOW!!!!
Such a great experience for you!!!
I am really happy for you, and you will see that you will be able to cope better with life's challenges and be a stronger person (actually, stronger than superwoman...hahahaha!!)
And most of all, you will be able to really recongnize deception even clearer the next time you decide to get into a relationship and cherish what you have even deeper...dont know if this is makin any sense, but I hope one day it will and things will go into play the best it can for you...the strength of a woman cannot even be compared to anything this world has to offer. We are strong when we need to be, cry when we feel like it, scream when we PMS, love like never before and still are able to face life like it was a piece of cake...(if you know what I mean...)
Anyways, the most important thing is to keep smiling, and keep finding the most beautiful yet smallest joys in life..the exotic color of flowers, the beautiful sunsets, etc...as well as stay clean, and you will see, your king will come riding into your sunset some time soon...
Best of luck and wishes to you as you continue to be a PHENOMENAL woman :) Take care, and dont forget....When life brings you lemons, make some lemonade out of it..(Just as you have done...)
