I'm not really crazy about exercising.

BUT, I'm grateful I have the mobility to be able to do it.

Today, I tried to work VERY hard.

I did arm exercises, walked for 1/2 hour, and tried to exert myself.

One reason I do it, is to stave off dementia and alzheimers.

Hope it works.

But, I'm grateful I can still move around freely.

She's one of the best there is.

A person with no guile.

Just perfect.

She is always wanting to improve herself.  She studies, she walks, she learns, she is generous, she is a role model for her children...she is perfect in every way.

And, I'm grateful to get to be her sister-in-law.

The Temple

Whenever I go to the temple, I am always amazed at how


everyone is...

The patrons, the workers,

It's just a pleasant place to be.

And, I am grateful.

Allen had a heart incident in church on Sunday.....

He feels sure it was a heart attack....

Whatever happened, he is doing fine now,

And, I am beyond grateful.

Fantastic Weather

Perfect day today.

We planted our first annuals today...primroses; they are lovely.

Our first little white crocus is out.

And, I am grateful.

St George!

I love living where the sun shines many days of the year.

I love living where there is very little or no snow.

Okay, let's face it; I love living in St. George.

And, I am grateful.

A Walk Out Doors

I usually walk at home or in the gym.

Today, after a two mile walk with my walking DVD, I walked outside;

It was so refreshing,

And, I am grateful for the FRESH AIR, SUNSHINE, and mobility.

This morning is the first time I have heard the birds singing;

it made MY heart sing.

It must mean that spring is getting closer.

And that makes me happy and grateful.

Coming Home

I've been gone for five days....

I was tending 3 little boys in Provo....

And, I'm so grateful I could help.

But, oh, I'm so grateful to be HOME!

I've been doing some family history....

It's amazing how it has changed since we went on our first family history mission in 2008...

It was a very complicated process to get a name temple ready; in fact, I was nervous about doing it when someone came for help.

Now, the church has made it so easy, and we can print the cards right from our own home.

I'm grateful.
