It's better to look up.

January 25, 2012

Everyone always tells me to look up. Well, mostly the Prophet and my dance teachers. So that's a lot. But it really does make a big difference. in life and in dance. Walking across campus, it's a lot nicer to be looking at mountains and trees and snow and buildings than it is to be looking at cracks in cement. And if you're lucky, you might even see a girl in brown leather pants. probably only if you go to BYU. When you look up while you're dancing, you look prettier. fact. You look and feel more confident. and you still might see a girl wearing brown leather pants, I don't know.

It's also good to look up to people.
..even when they're shorter than you.


Lesa, for example. Or as she is more commonly know, Mumsie.

I've been reading in the Book of Mormon lately about the stripling warriors and how much they were strengthened by their mothers' faith. Aside from all the fighting Lamanites stuff, I could totally be a stripling warrior. My mom has tons of faith and it strengthens me constantly. She was the best Seminary teacher I could have asked for. Not only did she teach me so much about the Gospel through her lessons, but she taught me about dedication and really fulfilling whatever calling the Lord gives you. I think she is probably the cutest Seminary teacher in the world. She always has hot chocolate on especially cold mornings, and does really creative object lessons all the time. I hope the students in her class realize how lucky they are. I don't even say that just because she's my mom. Honestly, she's the best.
Lesa is the most wonderful lady in the whole wide world. She listens to me rant, helps me pay for clogging shoes, comments on my blog, and thinks I'm funny. Top four things a perfect mom needs to do.



I also like my pillow pets. I don't look up to them, but they're cute. And I like the people who gave them to me.

In real life, the giraffe (Geff) is a lot smaller than the unicorn (Ulysses).

True, Geff and Ulysses are pretty cute but not as cute as your seminary teacher.
