moving day! plus some thoughts...  
Today was the longest day EVER. I woke up around 7:45 and finished packing everything in my room, and bathroom up. Coach Prince and Weston came to load everything up and take it to the rental house and the warehouse. That was probably the most work I've done in a really really long time. I have a lot of respect for movers now.
I'm so happy that my family is all under one roof again, and not two. That was a rough couple of months for me, and my family...and I really appreciate all of the prayers because they've been answered. I am so thankful for my amazing parents and sister, and for the roof over my head, and food that is available for every meal and snacks.
I watched a show on MTV called True Life: I'm Dead Broke" and it made me so sad. Sometimes I go through life, wanting more and more and more. Sometimes I sound spoiled. I've never realized how good I had it, until I watched this show. A boy had to help support his family. He had to share a bedroom with 5 brothers and sisters (the room was tiny), they had no running water, the roof leaked, and he didn't have a car. One time he needed to be at the probation office at a certain time or else he'd be put in jail and he couldn't find a ride there. So he began to walk 18 miles. That's insane, and it really makes me sad. I complain about my car, I complained about having to share my bedroom with my sister for 4 months while our house is being built (even though I don't have to)...but really, there's nothing to complain about. I've really become aware of what I have and how blessed and thankful I am.

These lyrics describe how I feel and how much my attitude has changed....

I may never climb a mountain
So I can see the world from there
I may never ride the waves
And taste the salty ocean air
Or build a bridge
That would last a hundred years
But no matter where the world leads
One thing is always clear

I am blessed
I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

All along the war has travelled
I have crawled and I have run
I have wanderred through the wind and rain
Until I found the sun
The watching eyes ask me why
I walk this narrow way
I will gladly give the reason
For the hope I have today

I am blessed
I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

You've given me joy
You've given me love
You give me strength when I want to give up
You came from heaven to rescue my soul
This is the reason I know...

I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

i agree with what you say... alot of people in this world... are ungrateful for the blessings that we recieve every day... God's blessings are everywhere it could be a hug or a smile from a friend... God loves all of us so much and im really glad that you realized how much you're blessed... cuz we all are... well talk to you later sam bam -nathan
