#210 – A few favorite quotes

One day, while sitting in Relief Society, in my all Spanish-speaking ward, I was reading a talk by President Monson and felt very moved and inspired.  One quote after another jumped off of the page at me.  I quickly started to copy and paste them in an email because I wanted to reread them and ponder them some more.   What… Read more →

#209 – A dose of Meg

I read this post yesterday and I felt so touched by her writing that I felt I needed to share it too.     Meg Johnson – “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”    I adore the way that Meg writes.  I feel like at times in my life I can write this way too.  But the last few months… Read more →

#119 – The Temple in Me

Yesterday’s nightmare tried to create fear in losing all we have just worked so hard to acquire financially. This morning’s nightmare forced me to watch the potential… Read more →

#115 – The Future

My husband is an angel in my life. I have this picture of him on the lock-screen of my phone so I can have a gentle reminder everyday to be grateful for this man. One of my favorite things that he does for me is to HELP ME! He has a knack for just about anything. He can figure out… Read more →

#114 – Good News!

I’m sitting in Paradise. I’m relaxing for the first time in a year. It has been a LONG year. Paul and I needed to get away to reconnect, regroup, and recharge. We chose a 5 night stay at an adult-only resort in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We were considering a trip to Paris or Chile, but both of us needed… Read more →
