2012: The Year of the Thief

I just got some bad news.  On Saturday, I accidentally left some pretty important things in a friend's car.  Her car was broken into last night, and my stuff was stolen.  It wasn't terribly expensive stuff, but it was extremely meaningful.*

It reminded me of the break-in earlier this year.  And this was the thought that went through my mind:  "When will this year not stink?"  I recognize that I have much to be grateful for in life, but negative thoughts keep cropping up lately.  And nightmares!  Oh, the nightmares and restless sleep.  Those things have been problems, too, lately.  I can't seem to figure out what is wrong . . .  I know I can do better -- be better.  I'm not perfect, and even if I was, I'm not entitled to more than the average person.  But something incredible better be around the corner because this has been the worst year since I was 27!

*In fact, it was temple clothing.  In LDS temples, we wear only white.  (My temple dress was a plain, but pretty white dress.)  From
In the temple there are private dressing rooms where you change out of your Sunday clothing and put on white clothing. This change of clothing serves as a reminder that you are temporarily leaving the world behind and entering a holy place. White clothing symbolizes purity, and the fact that all are dressed alike in the temple creates a sense of unity and equality.

Thing I'm thankful for: my peppy new fingernail polish aaaaand . . . my health

Sorry you were robbed again, Sara. That really blows. Hopefully, the second half the year will be better for you.

People steal stuff out of our fridge here at the dorm all the time. When I first got here I had bacon and yogurt stolen. Then I decided to just not buy any good looking food - it seemed to solve the problem pretty well :/

Hi Sara,
It is so good to read about your life -- I've missed talking to you. Hope you are doing well, minus the thefts. One of my favorite Neal Maxwell quotes, "We expect life to be all green lights and a parking spot in front of our destination". I hate it when I have a few red lights, or a bad parking space.

I had my temple clothing stolen about 6 years ago from my car. It was terrible!
