The other day I was thinking when I was driving. That's were I do my best thinking, there the shower and just before I go to sleep. All the hardest places to write down a thought. So anyways I was thinking about how I gain so much from the women around me.
From my friend Elizabeth, I have learned to try new food and you can make them healthy. To try new ways to help the earth like recycle.
From my friend Kim, that you can make money in all sorts of ways. Selling stuff on e-bay, writing articles for different sites, selling clothes and consignments. You can also make many of your own things. She is my resourceful gurroo!
From my friend Alice, that you should always be yourself and never apologize for it. She is so Alice that you love her and admire her for being a strong women.
From my friend Susan, sewing and canning. She is not the stereotypical Molly Mormon, but she knows so many things and inspired me to do them as well.
From my friend Katie, to be more layed back. Katie is not lazy at all she gets everything done, but just takes things as they come and doesn't freak out. She is loving with all kids and has an abundance of patience even if she would never admit it.
From my friend Lindsey, to serve. Lindsey will put down everything to help someone and she is not a bragger. When I hear of a person in the ward that needs something, you can bet that she has been there or is getting a meal or whatever. That girl is so humbly giving.
From my friend Ronna, to give freely. Ronna doesn't think oh I can't give them this or that. She knows that you need baby clothes she will get them. You need this for yourself she will get it. She is always giving.
From my friend Aimee, to always prepare. Aimee is really good at preparing. Preparing to be healthy for pregnancy, preparing for financial hard times, preparing for her families future. She isn't a nut or a fanatic, but in her own way she is so good at preparing for the future.
From my friend Emily, to pray. Emily is the best prayer. I learned from her to turn to prayer in all things. She prays when she is angry, in need of guidance, thankful, for all points in her life.
You know I could go on and on. I have learned so much from the women around me. Things that I am still trying to implement in my life. If I have not mentioned your name it doesn't mean that I haven't learned from you or you haven't touched my life. And don't get me wrong those that I have mentioned have many wonderful traits and gifts that I didn't even talk about, but these are things that touch me. I am so glad to be surrounded by such women. You are all awesome thank you for improving my life.
