The second highlight was eating at Brick Oven for Tanner's birthday, and being called "Sweetheart" by the balloon guy, who made me a lavender seahorse. Maybe I've never admitted it, but I love terms of endearment and little names like that. When Rob called me "Babe" the first time back in July or August, it made my day. And Elder Hammond called me "Sweetheart" all the time and I loved it.
Which leads me to the third highlight. I enjoyed my evening with the Bradshaw's, and was even referred to as "Sunshine" by Brother Bradshaw. They invited me to join them for dinner, then scriptures and prayer, after we had recorded the video I'll be sending to ITA as part of my audition. Wanna see it?
Suffice it to say, I felt very loved today. By God, strangers, family, and the Bradshaws. I'm especially grateful for Sister Bradshaw's time and talent that she shared with me tonight. It's good to know I really do have people around who truly care for me, and show it.
