This = us celebrating (banging pots and pans and yelling in the middle of the street) that I got my papers that say It's officially over and that I FINALLY get my name back.

I've learned so much about Patience these past few months. It has been SO hard waiting for me to get my name back. I love this quote "Patience may well be thought of as a gateway virtue, contributing to the growth and strength of its fellow virtues of forgiveness, tolerance, and faith."

I know that this time in my life has been a huge test of my patience. I have been able to lean on my Savior like never before. I love this scripture in Mosiah. “Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith” I can truly say I am more patient and a stronger person than before. I'm so thankful for my trials in my life. I have a testimony that if you look for your blessings during your trials, look forward, be positive and go to the Lord for strength. He will give you strength and take all of your pain away.
