(Today is Annie’s birthday, but we aren’t really celebrating it until Tuesday.) After church, Annie did NOT want to leave nursery. She was just soooooo tired and threw the most biggest fit of her tiny life. Everyone was gone and she still laid right here crying and crying. Finally, she told me she wanted her pajamas on and warm milk. Then she let me pick her up and carry her to the car. Poor little nut.
I love my tiny girl so much! I can’t believe how big and grown-up she is! It makes me sad that time is flying by so quickly!!!
On to more serious matters…..I have felt sooooo depressed this 4th of July. Usually it’s my favorite holiday and all the anthems stir my soul and I cry tears of overwhelming love and patriotism. But as I sat in Sacrament Meeting today, as everyone sang the patriotic hymns that I LOVE, I just felt overwhelming sadness. I couldn’t sing ONE word. I just cried and cried with SADNESS. It felt like someone had died and it was too hard to sing the songs that reminded me of them. That’s exactly what I felt. I just feel so helpless against the direction this country is heading and it’s throwing me into the depths of despair. So, that was me for the past couple days. I know people are strong and courageous and ready for the battle, but today I am just sad.
