Hi all...

Okay so I am probably due an update. Car. Check. Pete Home. CHECK!

Pete is still having to work through this -- slow to incubate - slow to go away-- He has good and bad days. It seems two steps forward, one back, but all in all he is doing a lot better.

Lainey has been visiting with the Missionaries lately and has been reading the Book of Mormon. It suprised me. They were here checking on Pete and on me and she volunteered that she wanted to find a church. I think it is wonderful that she is looking for any guidance. She went with me to stake conference, but was sick last week. So we will see what happens this week. I need to get those boys to be good. I know they need to get used to it but any ideas will help. Pete is very supportive of all of this even though he isn't ready for it himself. As far as I am concerned, most of this (at least on my part) is due to him being so sick and me finding myself in a dark place (a few posts back) I hadn't been in that place since before I knew Pete. One way or the other this time it brought me back at least the part of me I have supressed for so long to reduce the conflict I was feeling at that point and time (all of 2001 most of 2002) Long story and not for the blogs. SO I guess I am back or at least working back to that point.

Have about five crochet projects going - will have to post pictures as I finish them, though one is a familiar pattern - slightly different yarn.

Congratulations on the car, Em!! That's great. It looks really nice. And even more congratulations that Pete is finally home. Best news you've got...good luck making the adjustments. Keep reading your scriptures, praying, and keeping your head up. Don't forget to ask for help. It's available in many forms and can all be useful - blessings, meals, VTers, friends, and especially praying for guidance, comfort, support from the Holy Ghost. You are loved by many!!

Hey Em! I'm so glad to hear that Pete is home and recovering. That's great that the missionaries are visiting you. They carry such a strong spirit with them. You are a great missionary too! I know that the the scriptures and prayer can be a great source of comfort to us when we need it, but they are also a great source of joy when things are going good. Love ya!

I'm working on some sacrament meeting helps. Hopefully I'll have them to you by Sunday. Stick with it! It will help more than anything. I'm proud of your courage. We're praying for you!
