So Long Utah (for now at least)

Well, I'm packing up my life again for the East. And it's complex, but I'm excited. I'm going to be home the first weekend of March (that'll be explained at a future date).

At any rate, I've had the best week in Utah. Pretty much all I've done is hang out with my favorite people (and usually food was involved, so that makes it even better). I've spent hours and hours talking to people I haven't seen for months, and won't see for months more (for a two of them, it's years more, because they're headed off on missions in exciting places). And after all the talking and sharing and catching up (and maybe a little crying because as of late I cry all the time), I just feel so incredibly grateful.

There's this Razor's Edge quote that I'm sure I've shared before, but it's been on my mind pretty much all week: "Almost all the people who've had most effect on me I seem to have met by chance, yet looking back it seems as though I couldn't but have met them. It's as if they were waiting to be called upon when I needed them."

It may well be that everyone feels this way, but I just can't believe how incredibly lucky I am. There are lots of privileges and blessings I have to be grateful for, but probably the biggest is my support system. I feel highly undeserving of all these incredible people I get to be friends with. Every day this week, I got to spend time with such phenomenal people. And I just wondered how and why. Most of these people I got close to by random. And yet, I can't imagine where I'd be without my giant support system.

I am so fortunate.
