Day 142

Still trying to figure things out. Good thing I was able to do so many things on my list. If not, I would be drowning right now.

I was able to go to church today long enough to take the sacrement and hear one and a half talks before I needed to leave. I can't wait for the day when I can attend all of church and not be called out. In the last 5 months I have only been able to attend all my meeting 3 Sundays. Not enough.

Today was a better day for Nicole and I both. At least I think it was. still figuring things out. So many more things to think about then you would ever think. I thought I had all the bases covered. Well, I did. At least the ones I had thought about before hand.

Nicole is sad. Today she said she hated the way she looked. I tried to empathize. Through her shedding tears she confided in me that she thought no one would like her now. Now I am crying. "Nicole, there are always going to be people out there who like you or don't like you. Unfortunatly it is their loss when they don't get to know that person under the scars or behind the mask. You are a person worth knowing even if they don't so." She hugged me and told me she loved me and I love her right back.

Nicole'shair is getting longer. I can put a good part in it. I bought 2 very cute snap clips for her hair. I tried one today and it stayed in. I hope it helps her feel a little pretty.

Nicole getting discharged and our little "date" last night was my good news minute in RS today :) Even after the block people were asking me how she was doing etc. I hope that will make her feel a little better :) Maybe I will draw her a picture...

Who are the block people. I am glad you could use us as a good news minute. She would love a picture. I will tell her what you said. I am sure it will bring a smile to her face.

"After the block, people were asking..." there is no "block people", there is supposed to be a comma there ;)
