Our Ending Church Job

For about two years or so, Allen and I have been serving as Stake Baptism Coordinators; it's really just a glorified name for janitor, launderers, and chair sitter-uppers.

But, I have absolutely loved it.  It's once a month on Saturdays and I have particularly loved serving with the:


It was a great blessing, but now we will be released.

I am grateful for that past opportunity!

The LDS Church

So much of WHO I am, is rooted in the LDS church.

It's who I am...I can't separate myself from those roots.

I love the Gospel and I am grateful.

My Life

At this point in my mother's life, she was lonely and didn't feel like she fit; in her ward or in her town.

Although she had visitors, she didn't have friends to go do things with after her busy life in Pocatello, Idaho.

I am having an opposite experience, and I am certainly grateful for that.

I am happy and grateful.

When I hear all the news about war and death and starving,

I am so grateful to live where we live in a little peaceful valley.

There are problems here,of course, but they are minimal compared to many places in the world.

Today, my heart is filled with gratitude for PEACE!

St George

Having spent a great deal of the summer away,

I have such an appreciation for this unique place in the desert.

Oh, Yes, it's not pretty, but

I am grateful to live here.  I love it.

Mission #4

We just started serving our 4th part-time mission....

And, I am grateful!  (I'm especially grateful, because it wasn't even MY idea!  Allen said it was time to give back after fishing all summer!)

If you look carefully, you will see the Family Search logo in the background on the building!

Family Time

We don't often get to be with the Fishers all at once....

So, it's just great when they come to play.

And, I am grateful.

My cousin, Margo, and her husband came to spend time with us this summer.

It was great and I love being around Margo; she has the most pleasant disposition ever, so it's a joy to be with her.

Her dear husband has no hearing in one ear, and limited hearing in the other ear.  That makes it very difficult to carry on a conversation.

Also, music in the background totally distracts him.

Being around him totally reminds me of how grateful I am for the sounds of living:

our neighbor's rooster,
the wind,
water running,
books on tape,
children laughing,
and so much more.

I am so grateful for the ability to HEAR!

I know things will change,

So, for now, I will enjoy this moment.

And, I am grateful.
