Bridger's Willingness to Serve a Mission

I'm still surprised, but so happy.

Bridger is going on a mission!

It's wonderful.

He's such a great kid, and it will be a blessing for him for the rest of his life.

He has been called to the Salt Lake City mission, Spanish speaking.

He goes to the Mexico MTC in October.

And, I am grateful.

The Women in Our Ward

Last night was Relief Society.

The room was filled with wonderful, good, inspiring women.

I am overwhelmed at the kind of strong women in our ward.

Good to the bone, strong in the Gospel, faithful in serving others.

Oh, how I love them.

And, I am grateful.

I love books.

Reading is something that I love to do every day.

From scriptures,

To Nonfiction,

To a Good fiction book.

There are so many good writers and it's so fun to read their creations....or listen on audio books.

So, I've thankful for books.

Air Conditioning

It is blistering HOT HOT HOT

Here in St. George.

I often think about the pioneers and wonder how they made it through the scorching summer heat.

As for me, it is unbelievable and almost unbearable; to just even step outside is withering.

So, I give great thanks to the men and women who invented air conditioners.

What a great blessing.

And I am grateful.

We don't always agree....

We sometimes argue.....

We are so different in many ways.

But, I feel so comfortable with him.

He totally knows me ( he gets it wrong sometimes!)

But, it's a great blessing to have him by my side.

And, I am very grateful.

My Darling Daughters


Pain in every joint.

My hands, my knees, my fingers, my elbows.

Deep pain.

Inability to even walk without intense pain.

I called on my daughter for HELP.

She gave it.

ANd, this morning, I woke up almost pain free.

It's a me, at least.

One day, my knee started to hurt.  Then both knees...I mean...really hurt.

My hands were unable to type, play the piano, etc.

My elbows hurt and were so tender.  It was all such a mystery that it would come about so quickly.

So, I called DR FISHER...what is it, I cried out.

She asked me a few pertinent questions and she figure out it was a new antibiotic that I had recently started taking, so I immediately stopped taking it.

Pain stopped.

Truly unbelievable.

And, I am SO GRATEFUL for her diagnoses.

Then Kristi called.  She gave some helpful advice also.

Man, I love those two girls.

ANd, I am grateful.

The IRONY of it ALL!

My last post was expressing gratitude about having air conditioning.


When we returned from a quick trip to provo, Utah, our AC went out!

And, it's very hot!

But, I'm grateful that we have had it successfully for all these years we have lived here.

I still have much to be grateful for and I am.
