Life is so funny sometimes. Well, ya know, a lot of the time. I'm so glad that I know there is a plan for me...bigger than the one I had for myself. I've learned in the last few weeks that when I really listen to my Savior it pays off big time...and in little ways too. I think that's the key. LOOKING for your blessings, not just waiting for the life altering ones to appear. More often than not, they DON'T! It's the little things that add up. I stopped one day and just thought about all of the things I'm lucky enough to have. Wonderful family that is super close, AMAZING friends, a warm bed, running water...etc.
I'm not saying that I never have bad days, because let's face it. Who doesn't? But You have to have the bad days to appreciate those days that you never want to end :) right? I'm not perfect...but have learned today that I am a Beautiful Mess

Until next time, Lisha

Just so you know

Just so you know my name is Lisha
oh and I love apple pie...for any meal.
I love people and laughing,
and it's true. I would rather have a cheeseburger
than a salad.
I would rather be hurt for a minute by the truth,
than forever with lies.
Just so you know, I'm different.
Just so you know it's okay to like me.
I'm worth it.
Just so you know, my heart is always open...maybe a little too open at times.
Just so you know I'm the real deal.
Oh and just so you know...
I didn't lie at all in this poem.

Love, Lisha

What were you wearing?

So today of course was Family Home Evening. My friend Amy has 4 kids (3 older ones and a baby) and today the lesson was on observing other peoples needs. (Oh and after supper she had asked her kids to change into their pajamas)
She started the lesson by asking her 3 year old, Isabel, to stand up. She asked us (Paul, Alora, and I) what she had been wearing that day. The kids of course were caught off guard and didn't know what to say.
This got me thinking, how observant are we really? Would I really recognize if someone needed help? Am I willing to help them? Honestly, sometimes it's the last thing I really want to do. But, then I really got to thinking. Christ would have never turned his back on anyone. And I know that for a fact.
So, if I really am trying to be more Christlike, I need to learn to recognize when people are feeling left out or alone. It's hard to know what to say all the time. But I learned something a little while ago...people just want you to listen. Sometimes they don't even want you to solve their problem, they just want to be heard.

Love, Lisha

Oh Canada

I'm in Canada eh?! I love it here. I love the smell. I love the gravy with the fries. I love the loonies and the toonies. I love the money that comes in all different colors. I love the way every one says "aboot". I love how at night you can go out on your front porch and look up and see a million stars.

I was born here and have been here every summer since I was about five to visit my family. I LOVE it, but am feeling so torn. I love my life in Utah, but I love the way people live here. So if there was someway to transport the people and things that I loved in Utah to Canada I would be on cloud 9! But alas....

So if you ever get the chance to go to Southern Alberta...GO!!! You won't regret it. Ooooh and tell me! Because I would love to go with you! :D
