So today is 7 years since I was baptized! I know it's lame but I love to celebrate it as if it was my birthday :) My life has changed so much since that day 7 years ago.
My baptism day was a hectic and pretty funny one when I look back at it. I had just finished my exams at USF and I had to unpack my entire dorm in 5 hours. My Norweigen roommate was a gem and helped me! I didn't plan the move very well b/c I basically had to fit my entire dorm into my little 1994 Mitsubishi Galant.
So if you can picture this.....I had a mini fridge, TV, computer, dvd player, vcr, a bike, my stereo, a toaster oven, and ALL my clothes in the car. The car was packed so tight that I had to make the 30 minute drive back to my hometown, for the baptism, with my bike wheel in my face and my arms went through the wheel to steer my car. Yes I know it wasn't safe, but it worked. Another interesting thing that happened on this day 7 years ago occured in another country. Jesse was on his mission and he had a important decision to make. He prayed about it and got his answer. He remembered becuase it was exactly 1 year into his mission, April 30, 2002. His prayer was about his future, particularly his future wife.
I'm not going to get all mushy on this post (i'm saving my mushyness for next week when it's our 4 year anniversary :) ) but I will say that I know my life has been extremely blessed by the gospel and I feel so much closer to my Heavenly Father and my Savior because of it. Here's to 7 years!
