When your days are numbered, what is your last thought?

I definitely do not want to go through the last week again because of the programming assignment every two days. It's terrible because I am learning a new programming language and I wouldn't say I have the best professor in explaining everything in details because Computer Science isn't really that huge in BYU-Hawaii. I am glad that it's finally over! I have to study myself and go to class. I mean like, what the heck? I thought I would learn everything in the class. Maybe not in college.

Because I was so busy, I didn't really have time to plan for Valentine's day! However, we do have a great valentine's day together spending time eating together, talking, and we'd probably learn to know more about each other. I am glad that she wants to be part of my life because I'd seen how much she wants to be better because of me. She is also a part of the reason I learn to grow and love as well.

Being a tour guide, I get to listen to a lot of cool stories from the guests and some other tour guides. One tour guide relate how she was so sad because one of her guests is going to go blind forever and she is taking this opportunity to travel around the world to see everything she could before she couldn't see anymore. Her husband is dead and she has a really really good friend whose his wife is dead as well. This good friend offered to marry her so that she could take care of her when she goes blind. She tries to convince him a thousand things that he shouldn't be marrying her but I guess the guy just wont buy it and they somehow got married.

It's so sad to see all these things happening to other people and sometimes you might even wonder why does God do this? I don't really know why but I know God has a better plan for each of us just like how He continues to bless me even tho I am not perfect.

Also, I brought a guest few days ago who has terminal disease and has less than 6 months to live. This is the second time I'd brought a guest that has limited days to live. The first was a guy that has cancer and has less than 6 weeks left and the doctor told him that he might even die in the plane home from Hawaii. What can I do beside making these people happy? I'd tried really hard to make sure that they enjoy their last time here in the center.

Sometimes I recall my experience on my mission where a member that is really close to me called me up early in the morning and started crying and telling me that her husband has passed away. I still have the memories in my mind sitting in front of her dead husband wondering if there is anything I could do, listening to all these cries wanting the husband to come back but it will never happen.

I admire how the past prophets and leaders that have gone through all these with courage and I respected them for what they have done in always believing the Lord.


Happy Valentine's Day!
