Today, alone, I was told the following:
- A beloved member of my family told me that I may end up marrying someone with multiple children. It was a little awkward...although I have considered this before.
- According to my mom, a woman in our home ward said I will probably be the 2nd wife of a General Authority. Wow. I'm not sure why someone would say that, or even what I should think about that statement, but I know she meant it in a nice way...
On a fairly regular basis (read at least once a week) someone tells me not to worry b/c the Lord is preparing someone special for me...somewhere... Also, I am often told that its "my turn" soon or its "my year". I suppose someday, someone is going to be right when they say that.
Me? I'm living life and not letting my singleness be something that is sad. I trust the Lord. He has a plan. Right now, he wants me here, that's as much as I know. He doesn't usually tell me a lot, just a little and waits for me to do it for a while, then He'll tell me a little more. Frustrating? Sometimes, but my life has been, and continues to be, beautiful, so I'll just keep trusting Him.
I love what President James E. Faust said one time. He was quoting a single friend of his and it symbolizes a part of what I feel:
"When troubled by this single life, that seems to be my lot, I think of all the many men, who's wife I'm glad I'm not."
Word, Pres. Faust. Word.
