Crazy Cat Lady

I'm embracing this great moment right now. One that was too perfect not to catch on camera. One of the best parts of my mission has been making lifelong friends. I LOVE the people in Tennessee and Kentucky that I've spent so much time with for (can you believe it) the last 15 months. Sadly I've been a slacker and not taken pictures with all of these amazing people! I'm a big believer in snatching photos in the moment because it gets really boring to look through pages and pages of posed shots in an album.
So here is a real life moment with Terry. I could spend all day at her house. And she'll be the first to admit that it smells like a trailer where 500 cats and a dog live. Oh wait, because it is a trailer where 500 cats and a dog live. Her gigantic heart always has room for another furry friend (or 4 in the case of these kittens).
Part of the reason that I could spend forever and a day with her is because she has so many stories to share. Miss Terry was and still is a bit of a wild one. But when she found The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints something inside of her changed. It wasn't a magic fairy wand that went "POOF!" and everything was perfect. OOOhhhh no. What she had found was much better than that. Because God's way takes time, effort, and sacrifice. And the blessings that come from following God's commandments are always worth the fight we wage against the adversary to keep them.

Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.
