7 Years of Heaven

I met Brady Murray who just got back from his mission to Peru. It was nice to have him here, it made the communication much easier & he did a great job teaching the lesson. I know we all felt the spirit as he talked about the plan of salvation and the importance of the temple.

...before we went to the stake center we stopped at Grandma's and man does she like Brady! She kept saying what a great guy he was & how right when she met him she felt like she'd know him her whole life & how handsome he is and on & on, we were only there for 10 minutes! She's right though, Brady is really awesome. I am very impressed, Brady seems to be really on the ball.

Brady is so amazing. I am so impressed with Brady, he really knows what this life is about and what he's doing. He has so much direction and determination. He has so many good characteristics. I heard him talk today in sacrament and after seeing him interact with people and how he teaches the Rivera's, it makes me want to be so much makes me feel very good to be around him.

I really like how honest Brady is about everything, he's really up front and honest about how he feels and what he wants...I have been so impressed with his goals and his priorities. He seems so directed and its obvious that the gospel is most important to him. He was saying tonight how he doesn't want his wife to work when they have kids & how he want to take his wife to Peru. It was making me so excited because those are the things I want too!

What a great day this has been, it got off to a good start last night when Brady came over and brought gifts, he gave me an awesome picture....After that Brady came and got me and I gave him his leatherman and we went and saw his family. I like his family, he has lots of cousins...It was fun I was glad to be able to spend time with Brady today. Tomorrow we're going to the Jazz game, so I'm pretty excited for that!

The really good thing about my first day in 2002 is that I got to be with Brady again for a while tonight. I like him so much. I have to write about our day together yesterday, it was so awesome. Brady took me ice fishing, duck hunting, and fishing where his dad works. I had so much fun...I seriously felt honored that Brady would take me there, because I know how much he loves it, its a really cool place. It was so nice while we were sitting there waiting for them (the ducks) to come back, everything felt so peaceful...I'm glad he took me with him yesterday now I understand better why he likes it so much up there.

I still just love seeing Brady teach. He is so amazing, I have such a deep respect for him. We've been having quite a few ups and downs in our relationship the past week but it really has helped me feel a lot closer to Brady, I know I'm really learning a lot. When I'm with Brady I just want to be right next to him, I want to hold him and take care of him and just make sure he's happy. And when I'm not with him I miss him. Everyday I get so excited to see him, that's always the best part. He is so good to me, I love it when he tells me I'm pretty even when I'm not because I know he really means it...I feel so good about Brady, I already love him so much. I'm dang excited for us to keep dating.

Time is flying by. I see Brady everyday and its always the best part of my day. Usually we just sit and talk and whenever I can I try to get him to have dinner with me. He is so much fun to be with.

I love Brady more everyday. We went to Bear Lake today, we didn't catch a thing but that's not why I go anyway, I just like being with Brady. We had so much fun talking, we talked about all the stuff we're going to do together, how we're going to raise our kids, where we'll live, what vacations we'll go on and stuff like that. Brady will be the best husband and father ever. He makes me feel like a queen..he gave me my own fishing pole with a shimano reel for Valentine's Day!

This has been quite the day, I'm pretty excited now okay so really I'm dang excited because I'm going to marry Brady, all I have to do now is propose! JK

Note: My proposal most not have gone to well because we broke up twice in March! I had some crazy mission idea or something.

Wednesday night I had an interview with my stake president...I ended up leaving his office feeling very good about not even thing of a mission until I turn 21 in May. And let me tell you, its been great not thinking about it, to tell the truth, I don't even want to go now. I miss Brady too much when I have to go 24 hours without him so it would be stupid to leave him here when I want to be with him...all I want is to be with Brady. We went to the Special Needs dance Friday night. I love Brady.

I am so excited to watch Brady play baseball this summer. Brady is the most amazing person in the world. I love him so much that when I think about it I forget to breath. He makes me so happy and I feel like such a good person when I'm with him...the more I learn about Brady the more I love him...I am just so grateful for the patience Brady has had with me and for his unconditional love. I am so grateful for all that Heavenly Father does for me and the way He teaches me. It's hard to fathom all the love He has for all His children but I know its there. From the things I've learned over the past few months I think I'm starting to get a glimpse of that kind of eternal love. It's just awesome how things work out.

I am seriously the luckiest most blessed girl in the whole world! I've been on cloud nine all week, especially since Thursday. That night Brady and I were talking and somehow we started talking about marriage and you know that saying that when its right you'll just know? Well this is so true, as we've talked about getting married its so amazing the wonderful awesome peaceful feelings I've had...I love Brady so much, its the best kind of love I've ever felt because it makes me feel like such a better person and I just have complete faith and confidence in Brady. I love his ambition and his goals, and the way he loves me...I love how we're always thinking along the same lines, half the time I go to say something and he takes the works right out of my mouth. I love how we can just be ourselves around each other and how we love each other so much that it makes us better people...I didn't know love could be so great. I'm just realizing more and more everyday that Brady is more than I ever even hoped for...I want to spend every single day forever and ever with Brady. I know it might sound like I'm kind of blinded by love right now, but honestly I know we're not perfect but I know we'll always be able to nurture our love and respect for each other and learn and grow together. It's really true, life does just keep getting better!

What an awesome day! It's official now, I'm going to be Andrea Murray! I'm so excited, I love Brady so much!...It's so great to know that we are going to be married forever, I feel like I already love Brady so much that its hard to comprehend how much more our love will have grown by our 50th wedding anniversary. We are going to have the best life together!

Only 12 more hours and Brady and I will be married! I am so excited I can't even believe it. This is the happiest I've ever felt before! I know marriage won't be perfect bliss all the time but I know our home will always be happy as long as we keep God and each other as our top priority. It almost seems too good to be true, marrying the man of my dreams but holy cow, it's going to happen in the morning! There is so much more I would like to write about but I really better get some sleep, tomorrow will be the beginning of the best days ever!

Today marks seven years of the best days ever! My how time does fly. I love anniversaries because its fun to reflect on where we've been, where we are now and where we are going. For all that changes a lot stays the same. I still get excited everyday waking up next to Brady. He still possesses all of the wonderful qualities he had while we were dating plus a million more that I've seen in him over the past seven years! It turns out I was right, he is the best husband and father ever! I love living our dream, dreaming new dreams together and all that comes with life as we go. Get on your dancing shoes Brady because I'm hoping for millions of more years like these past seven! I love you always and all ways! Happy Anniversary!
