Today ended nicely. I had already had a lovely day with getting my haircut at Salon Heatherwood, by Heather herself. Then grocery shopping at a USA grocery store and only buying what I needed. . . THAT felt great!!! Usually I feel like I’m going to miss out on buying something, but now that we… Read More Date Night x 3
After 10 weeks of waiting patiently, in Utah, for another chance to serve the Lord as a missionary, HE LEFT US AGAIN!! Look at this dapper man. He is wearing his favorite “transfer/special occasion tie” that he got from his Dad’s closet 18 months ago. I must admit, this day was a bittersweet moment. On… Read More Q-Day #97 – and He’s Off!! ✈️
So this happened today! This young adult was “re-set apart” and then given a very special blessing to return to the mission field and serve the Lord for the next 6 months in the Washington Spokane Mission. After our son was set apart by his Aunt and Uncle’s Stake President, we had the privilege of… Read More Q-Day #95 – Mission Intermission Is Over!
So . . . We RAN AWAY! But this time we are going to be gone for a week! An ENTIRE week! (At least we hope to be.) But before we could leave, we had an important phone call. This young adult found out where he is being re-assigned in 2 weeks and he was… Read More Quarantine Day #80 – Celebrating!! 🥳
I’ve been radio silent too long. What is the use of a blog if I don’t use it to share the lows, as well as the highs? I have been trying to come up with easy ways to blog lately. Simple ways . . . Like sharing a favorite snack I have been enjoying during… Read More Coronavirus- Day #53

She leaves next Wednesday for Columbia. I brought the Sisters to our house, just after making a fresh batch of glazed donuts.… Read More Painting with the Sister Missionaries!
I feel fantastic! I wish I could handle feeling this way every day . . . but then how would one know what FANTASTIC really feels like? Our missionary is on the up and up! He looks GREAT and he said that he is feeling SO MUCH better! Me too! After a rough few days… Read More Thank You for the Prayers!
My mother’s heart is breaking tonight because my baby boy is sick, in a far away land. His lungs are sick with bronchitis and there isn’t anything I can do to take this away from him or make it better for him. I ache that I am thousands of miles away from him. Does he… Read More My Mother’s Heart is Breaking . . .
Today was just one of those “Mom Days”. You know the kind I’m talking about. You had a plan but at every turn, something else demanded your attention. Like helping my second oldest daughter face a yucky day, by helping her finally learn to make something she has been craving (rice pudding). But right as… Read More One of those days . . .
**This cute girl in the middle is Paul’s cousin’s daughter, but I literally think of her as my niece. I love this girl! I actually have loved her since the moment I first met her! (Kayleigh is the baby on the left. Bekah is on the right. Both are being held by their great-grandmother Phyllis… Read More Meet Bekah!
