So this week has been a really emotional one for me. I've already been really stressed about my job and super depressed about my job hunt. Then the passing of President Hinckely was a bit of a shock. The worst new of all came today, however. I found out that one of my best friends had a stroke yesterday. There isn't a lot of information yet on why or how much damage has been done. I do know that I have totally taken my friends for granted since moving to Maryland. I think I have felt so alone and isolated it was easier for me to shut everyone out. Missing them hurt too much. I realize, now, that I can't take anyone I love for granted. Will is such an amazing person and a phenomenal friend who I can't imaginge being without. I need to make more of an effort to tell the people I love how I really feel and to give friendships the attention they deserve. Please keep Will in your prayer and please tell the people you care about that you love them.
Here are some pics of Will, Sarah, and myself at Zion's National Park in Utah. This is the place where "Backseat Blackhurst" earned his name!
