Tender Mercy Tuesday - 19th Edition

After the shortest relationship I have ever had happened in the past 2 days I have found that I really am so blessed. The tender mercies of this weekend and last night have overwhelmed me.
  • My dear friend Bassbob called me within 10 minutes of getting off the phone with Fryman. Honestly, I was just starting to feel sorry for myself and he pulled me right out of that slump.
  • My other Bob friend (Becky Bob) has been a great friend. We've always been good friends, but in recent weeks our friendship has grown and we talk via email and text messaging almost daily. I love her. 
  • I wouldn't have the above two things happen to me if it weren't for the amazing technology of this day and age. I love that I am blessed to be here NOW when all these things are possible.
  • I am going to a funeral today, and while it is a sad moment to say good-bye to someone at the same time this man lived a full life. He was amazing and he is in a much better place now.
  • I still feel peace. Even with Fryman totally making a 180 degree turn and changing his mind on how he feels about dating me....we're not completely throwing it out the window. There is still a chance but like I said last night, I'm not holding my breath. 
  • Patience is a virtue that I obviously need to keep working on in my life.
  • Work has been crazy, but even with it being crazy I find time to hang out with my friends and do fun things. I love it.
  • My new ward is pretty cool. Still getting to know people, but I'm excited about it!
And basically, this sums up how I'm going to deal with life right now:

Aww... what a bummer about your relationship. But, it's like you said in my office the other day, everything works out like it's supposed to.
