So, every once in a while I go through this phase where I write a gazillion thank-you notes. Sometimes I even make a goal of writing one a day, three a week, or something ridiculous like that. Well, this past year I was not nearly as good about writing thank-you notes. I truly think it was partly because I wasn't in the FLSR--for some reason the Spirit there just radiates and everyone seems to deserve thank-you notes. My current ward has a few of these types of people--but anyone who has live in the FLSR (Becca)--knows that the ward at the FLSR is just different than any place else. Also, my roommate always wrote notes during sacrament meeting and for some reason I didn't want her to think I was copying her. Yeah my self-esteem is awesome as you can tell...just kidding.
ANYWAY! The past little while has been kind of weird for me. No particular struggles--but I have felt this constantly unsettled feeling which is driving me nuts. It is sort of an "itch", but mostly a "get your act together so you can figure out what Heavenly Father is trying to tell you" sort of thing. Needless to say, it has been particularly rough for that reason because I feel like I'm doing everything I can, but I know that I'm missing something.
Well, today I woke up to study early (I have a killer test at four), and as my roommate left she said, "Oh, there's a note at the door...it's for you". So, I opened said note and found a little piece of paper with some of the nicest, most needed words on it. I have been trying to decipher the initials at the bottom but I just realized that it's just a little design and not initialed at all. I so needed this little snippet of encouragement!
So. Moral of the story is: I am going to start writing my thank-you notes again, because I forgot that they are needed and don't really get excessive because you don't write them all to the same person. Also, thank you to whoever wrote me such a sweet little thank-you note. I guarantee they don't read this blog, but somehow I needed to express just how much it meant to me.
