Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

May you come away from the meeting rejuvenated, excited and eager to get on with the rest of your life!

Not yet my friend...lol. 

thank you ALL so VERY VERY VERY much for all of your prayers.  If you don't think that prayer works, you can use this message as an example because the bishop had some really really really good news for us and etc. and we had a great conversation.  Unfortunately I can't go into the details yet but as soon as things are solidified i'll let everyone know.
