No planning,

No dishes and cleanup...

Just good food.

And, I am grateful.

Toilet Lid - from Miles via FaceTime

Truthfully, I'm very grateful for toilet lids...

Having lived in China and not even having toilet SEATS, I realize what a great convenience toilets and lids are.

And, so I, like Miles, am very grateful.

Great Weather

It's October 26; if we lived in Rexburg, Idaho, it would be cold and windy.

It's absolutely perfect weather here.

Sunny, warmish, flowers still blooming.

And, I am very grateful.

Beauty All Around

We are in New Mexico...

Yes, it's still a desert....

But, the Organ mountains are striking as they rise in the distance of a blue, blue sky.

Such beauty everywhere.

And, I am grateful.

Beauty and Peace

We are on Coronado Island....the Navy base to be is so beautiful and peaceful here.

This morning at 8, we heard the bugler play a wakeup call.

Shortly thereafter, the Star Spangled Banner was played.  I was so moved by the beauty of the moment as we gazed out towards the ocean.

It was a beautiful moment and I was grateful.

St George

Yesterday we were out running errands.

The afternoon was absolutely PERFECT....warm, but not hot; a teeny breeze, but not windy.

It was so delightful and it made me so appreciate living here.

I'm very grateful for St George, Utah.

A Car

Today, as we drove along the freeway, a man was standing by the side of the road hitchhiking.

It occurred to me that a car is something I often take for granted.

And, I was so overwhelmingly grateful to have reliable transportation.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for a job, which has allowed us to have cars in our married life.

I am grateful.

A Living Prophet

During conference yesterday, I felt the distinct feeling overcome me that


was the prophet.

It was such a warm, enveloping feeling.

He is old, feeble, not in good health.

But, I felt love for such a wonderful man who has dedicated his entire life to being the Lord's servant.  The feeling was rare, and that made it the more was so fleeting, but it was REAL.

And, I was grateful for that momentary testimony.
