counting my blessings...

I am so happy, I have no reasons to complain and I feel very blessed to be able to feel this way. Last month I received a new calling at church - which I am really excited about- I was called to serve in the Young Women program as 2nd counselor, I finally will have to get over my fear to teach in english, which is silly since I feel pretty comfortable with the language by now, but I know Heavenly Father is helping me to overcome my lack of confidence I shall say. Tonight we had so much fun at mutual, we had a "Spa night", the girls are so much fun to work with, before this calling Nate and I were over our ward activities, which can be really stressfull sometimes, because we needed to think of things would please the whole ward, from nursery to adults, and I knew we would never please everybody, and we sure were told when we didn't..oh well I know there is a plan behind every calling at church, and I am sure in this plan the most important thing is to learn. I am very excited to learn on this new calling, learn with the girls and learn with the leaders I am serving with, they are wonderful women. I taught my first lesson 2 weeks ago, the topic was on "Revelation on our daily lives", it's so important to have a good relationship with our Heavenly Father, I would say it is the key for personal revelation, when I think about this key I think about my earthly parents, I didnt grow up with my father so it is really hard to have a close relationship with him, in the other hand with my mom its really easy to communicate, its easy to be myself, to ask for and take her advise. I am thankful that I can have a close relationship with my Father in heaven, to know that He loves and knows me.

So talking about counting my blessings, 2 weeks ago my mom had her interview to get a visa to come here to visit us. We were so afraid she wouldn't get it because last September she tried and she was denied, it was really sad for her and for us. So we prayed and asked our friends to pray for her. It has been 2 years since I saw her, and 3 since Nathan saw her, so it was really important for all of us for this to work out this time. Soooo She got it :) they gave her an one year visa and she is coming next tuesday the 27th a day before my B-day, she is going to stay untill Dec 1st, she has to go back to help my sister Noeme, she is having a baby in december, it's a baby boy his name is going to be Julio Cesar. this is all for tonight, when my mom arrives I will take lots of pics and post them here.
