water water water!

I have found the great importance of plenty of water. This last Thursday we went to the Zoo with our district and it was really great and fun to do the Zoo here is Ohio is big and very well put together and fun to look through! Sad part of it is though is that I didn't drink enough water and got heat exhaustion and after the Zoo had a migraine and past out for 3 hours. For the next 4 days I had that migraine and it just wouldn't go away! I got blessing that would make it not as bad for awhile but then yesterday it was so big and painful I had to go to the Hospital and it pumped full of drugs to make it go away.
The moral of the story is drink plenty of water all the time! Most of all when you are outside for a long period of time. It is better to have to go to the bathroom every 10 min. then have a migraine and have to go to the hospital. I KNOW!

Another thing I have learned is that having a companion is great! Living alone sucks when you are sick or need to go to the hospital because nobody is there. Having a compaion on a mission is having a person with you 24-7 and never leaving your site except when you are in the bathroom. Having that person, such as my now companion Sister Brimhall, is wonderful because you grow to love that person so much and would do anything to make them happy. I tried so hard to not be sick because it made her sad and she was just trying so hard to make the pain go away. I am very greatful to have her in my life at this time. of any medication I could take to get better she is the best medication for me to have :)
The point of that story is to always love and be good to the one you live with so that you both can always care for one another with all the love you feel. be good!

as time goes on

I have found that the best thing to do in life is to forget alot of the past. To meny of us these days say what if? what if nothing! It has happened and now your life is how it is. The best thing to do is move forward to make life better. dwelling only gets people into trouble to stay in a rut of doing nothing or hurting those you love. I have had the sad experience of doing so and it helps nothing but making you more and more sad.
My moving on started in a big way of CLEANING! Getting out all those things that make me say what if? and be sad of times mist. Then for me at least I found new things to do each day and not always have the same schedule day by day. By doing these things I was able to let the spirit into my life and was told to come on my mission. So here I am happier then ever.
All in all forget the past and move for the furture happiness you can have.

the beginning

A big start of my growth is here on my mission and now with my new blog!
Life in Ohio is great but with my trials that come with it. Sickness seems to be one of the main chosen trials for me as I have been sick one way or the other while in Ohio. I knew that I would have trials on my mission but I was hoping that sickness was not going to be one of them. I bet my Mom never thought that she would hear form a mission president this much in only a 4 month time period ha ha. she never heard this much from my sibling's presidents about being sick. It is my part in life and have learned to deal with it.
My 1st area in Ohio is Hayden Run and I am loving it. Sara Ballsteadt is a member of the ward here and has been a help to me as a missionary and a good friend in my hard times such as sickness. she is a big part of my life here in Hayden Run and I don't think I could have lived this long on my mission without her loving me.
my 2nd companion is Sister Bree Brimhall and I am loving her so much as I have struggled she has lifted me up. my mission is wonderful and I wouldn't change one day of it and I am very excited for this Saturday the 23rd when Lynn Ralston, a man we have been teaching for the last 4 months is getting baptized!
