I have recently had a friend who I have known for a long while and who was a staunch liberal cross the fence into conservative thinking. I was talking to my friend Reagan about this........
Jen - All I know is that she made some pretty good points for the conservatives of the world. I don't know. I feel my world has been turned upside down
Reagan - I understand that you could be confused. Your conversion will be a life shattering event and people and Satan will do everything in their power to stop you. It won't be easy Jen, but it will be worth it.
Jen - If I convert you have to give a talk about Asian babies
Reagan - I will give a talk that we should all be willing to help Asian babies, but help because we want to, because we are believers in Jesus and that's what he's want us to choose.
Jen - And that is being blogged
Reagan - I am happy to impart wisdom to the young(ish) and confused who are looking for the truth.

What happened today has changed so much in me. I mean it was this and other things I have been pondering and thinking but I am amazed at the changes it has made. I am so, so, very certain that this was such a great thing. I am so comfortable with who I am. I am a slightly...ok well more than slightly emotional person. And you know what? I am OK with that. I am not unstable (unless the Chargers lose). I am able to control my emotions. But I am dramatic and emotional. Guess what...that is what makes me me.
I can not stand John McCain....sorry watching the debates...........
You know what else? I love music and football and video games and cupcakes and Pop-Tarts. I love various TV shows and movies. I can not change any of that nor do I want to. I think I am pretty great the way I am. I have a soft heart, I cry easily,.....serious John McCain BUH........I like to surprise people, I like to give to people, I like tart yogurt.
Sometimes my heart gets hurt and broken. I am allowed to hurt. But I am not allowed to expect everyone to revolve around me. I am allowed to love my friends and want the best for them no matter what. I am allowed to be fiercely loyal....Buh Joe the Plumber.....John McCain.
Anyway, just, you know it was uncomfortable but it was really great. I stood up for myself which I need to do more. And something in me shifted. And it shifted hard......(TWSS)...and now I feel like I have been thrown out of the hole I was in. So thanks self-absorbed crazy woman....did you see this in the future?

Last night was Sunday Game Night. We played that game "True Colors". As I watched everyone choose one thing became clear. All of the questions that had to do with kindness, charity, and or food all had my BFF. I know this. BFF has, in a lot of ways, been my saving grace. Allow me to tell you our story...well mostly my story.....
I was released on December 4, 2007 from...ummm....anyway if you don't know then you can ask me and I might tell you. That next week I spent almost every night with my Bishop. There were things that needed to be worked out and questions I had. I was going to my family ward at the time. One Sunday my Bishop says "you need girlfriends". I was like, "uhhhh I do not know how to make friends really....so....I will pass". He said "no...go to a singles ward". BUH. So one Sunday in January I set off to find the singles ward. I ended up at the wrong building but there was a singles ward meeting so I thought "eah, what the hell...heck". So I went and I was introduced to some girls and I left. Cut to the next week. I have decided not to go. Who needs singles wards and friends? I am good. But I get this feeling to go...so.....buh...I go. I say my prayers that morning that I will find a friend and that I will get a "sign" that I am supposed to be in this ward. I walk up to the doors...5 minutes late of course...and here comes BFF. OK anyone who knows her knows this is a miracle because BFF is never late for church. I ask if I can sit by her. The rest is history.
We have had our struggles....but we get through them every time. She makes me laugh, she makes lemon bacon pasta and she always tells me I am pretty (that last part was awkward but true). I am so thankful for my BFF.........
Five Great Things About BFF
- Thinks I have cute clothes
- Puts up with the fact that I feel that I am superior in every way when it comes to music
- Thinks I am funny
- Watches Buffy with me
- Lets me be myself
- Listens to me except when she is on the computer
- Kind hearted
- Knows she is not perfect
- Does not make me feel like I need to go to gym
