well here it is may third and it seems like forever since ive blogged......alot has happened in my life since the last time ,let me start by saying i now see the world and my family through a whole new lens.A few years ago my daughter letitia met this little girl in school and became quite attached to her,litterally,her name is london white.Well i was happy to have this new little friend for my oldest daughter,as she is quite a fussy friend picker and nearly puts her friends through an application stage and credit im trying to say is that she holds her heart very close and doesnt give it away very freely,it must be earned!Well that was about 5 years ago now,since then they have become the closest of friends i've ever seen,i've often envied the great friendship the two of them have had....this little girl London has brought such joy into our family by sharing so much with us.By sharing i refer to herself and her family,her mom kimara and her dad sean,of course we can't forget blossom and annaboy:)......Before i jump ahead too much i would like to go back and tell you about a year into the friendship between my daughter and this little girl,i found out that london was a mormon.I was shocked my daughter was friends with a mormon...only because i was uneducated and had my own thoughts of this.I frequently asked questions to letitia about her mormon friend she had and she would find me the answers here and there,through the last few years getting to know london better in our family i realized shes just a normal girl with standards that i thought were very interesting and wanted to learn more.I since have become very close with Kimara and Sean and my family and i love to spend time with their family,because london spends alot of time with our family and we love to have her so often...Kimara and Sean thought it would be a great idea if we learnt a little more about the values and the choices that they as a family make.Quentin and I have began along with our family to meet with these wonderful young men,who i will call the elders,along with kimara and sean have been teaching us about the value of life and of Our Heavenly Father ..and how we need to have this in our lives....i can honestly say that this has been a scary experience for me as it is the fear of the unknown,,,,i've dabbled in many religions throughout my life but have never felt a connection or a love like ive felt with this family ....i cannot determine at this point where i am headed as it is for me to early to tell,but i can tell you i feel like i have hope for the first time in my life and that this feels right,and the reason for writing this is to thank London for coming into our lives as i beleive that she was brought to our family for a reason,and the reason can only do GOOD....:) be continued....more great stories to come......
