So I have a confession to make. My last entry titled "Danilicious" wasn't a secret to Dani in that she knew I was posting, but didn't know what I was writing about.
I'm still new to this whole "blogging" idea and to be completely honest, I wanted nothing to do with it! Having said that, I find it very therapeutic as well as great practice for my horrible typing skill..........s(found it).
Dani really now has no idea that I am posting this blog entry and it will be a great surprise to her when she wakes up this morning with her blue eyes a blazin'.
I have very mixed emotions right now. I love Dani more than I ever thought possible but yet I am frustrated at the same time. Guys and Girls are so different, as cliche as that sounds, and you don't really understand that until you live with the other. My mom always used to say to us(I never believed her) "When Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." No we didn't grow up in the south and yes I thought she was crazy and ignored her when she said that. I now realize that that phrase is soo true! When Dani is hurting, I hurt. When Dani is happy, I'm happy. When Dani is upset, I'm scratching my head wondering what the heck I said or did.;) I never realized how much my state of mind depended on hers and I'm sure vice versa. That can either make it at times very frustrating or incredible at the same time. When everything is running smoothly it's amazing how in tune we are to each other. We think the same and we will even act the same. Its like we are thinking together. That's how I imagine our Heavenly Father has it planned to be. We become so close that we know we would both make the same decision but yet still both bring different personalities to the table.
I guess the point of me writing this was to vent a little on how hard it can be some times to always be so sensitive to someone else' feelings. I can't imagine my life now without Dani and refuse to entertain the idea. I am grateful for her wise and calming presense that she adds to the relationship, and LOVE her quirky and adorable personality. I love that I can be myself and she will watch me make a fool of myself and think I am the hottest thing alive. She will lie to me about my weight and will take any comment about her weight as a lie. I love how she wakes up in the morning and how she makes me feel that she needs me. That she can't go to sleep with out me there. That she is scared to speak up and ask an employee of a grocery or convenient store where something is if she can't find it. I can't imagine how she got along with out me and don't know how she does with me. I'm sorry I don't always say or do the right things. I am learning. I love you Hun and love you more than you will ever love me! Sleep tight!

Honestly it has been a long time since I have been so emotionally distraught as I was today. I received and email and a Facebook invite regarding HBO and their series "Big Love". I have always believed in the freedom of speech and expression. However I would never believe that a company could go as far as to make a mockery of what I along with millions of others hold sacerd. Whether they believe what I do or not is not the issue, it is an issue of respect. I believe that we are in a day in age where personal liberties and choices are highly respected and yet there seems to be a growing trend for persecution of differences in regards to religion. Honestly it seems as if we are in the midst of a modern day Holocaust.
So I keep asking myself, what can I do, what am I going to do, how should I react? I was certainly upset, I was in tears at the thought of what I hold so sacred could be broadcast like the morning news, scrutinized for all those who neither understand and those who choose not to understand to dictate how they feel regarding my personal beliefs. So what am I choosing to do? Pray. I am praying for strength. I am praying for the excommunicated members who are making known every detail. I am praying for my family. I am praying that as we are in the very thick of a modern day Saddam and Gomorrah that we too can stand strong in our faith. That the Lord will help us and save us from the persecution of this world. That as members we can stand strong in the midst of turmoil. That is what I am going to do, I hope you all do the same.

Dani doesn't know that I am blogging about her but she will soon enough. This posting is for those who don't know the Dani that I do.
There are a couple things that everyone needs to know about her. The first thing is she has an amazing ability to make a thousand faces. Name a situation and she has the most adorable face that would fit perfectly. Those faces have the ability to make my heart melt and want to do anything for her. I think if Dani had a super power that's what it would be. She would be able to control you with her beautiful and some times "scary" facial expression. I also want to point out that although she has beautiful facial expressions, some of them scare me. If I were in a dark ally and didn't know her and if she were to give one of her 30 scowls I would probably be more scared of her than Mike Tyson, who by the way bites ears off!
Another thing that we should all know about her is that she has an amazing voice. Every time we watch American Idol it is hard for me to focus because I know that she would blow them away. I love it when she sings her heart out when it's just her and me knowing she can cause no one else can hear her. She doesn't want anyone else to hear but I'm sure they would all buy tickets to hear her sing. She absolutely will not sing in front of a crowd by herself. She is horrified to sing by herself but sings like an angel thus denying the world of her amazing voice. I hope she doesn't lose her talent because she doesn't use it. If you really want to know something crazy but extremely cute then have her sing in Chinese for you some day.
I will make another posting another day. Let Dani know you love her when you read this. She is an amazing person and has more compassion for others than I have ever seen. She is a great influence in my life and a great support. I love you hun!
