General Relief Society Meeting

I was so inspired last night by the General Relief Society Meeting talks. I liked them all, but especially felt grateful to have a living prophet on the earth today after hearing President Monson's talk. If you missed it, or would like to hear any of the talks again, this is the link in English.

I am so glad to have the gospel in my life. I made a sign for Maddy, to go over her crib, that says "Charity." It has been my mantra over the last few months, as life has had so many challenges. Having the prophet remind us that Charity, the pure love of Christ, is a requirement to return to Heavenly Father was an especially poignant thing for me to hear. I also really liked his thought that Charity is the love of Christ in action. My goal this week is to find as many ways as possible to put my love for Christ into action, in serving others, in turning away from the temptation to judge, and in trying to be more Christlike.

Couch Dancing with Maddy!

Maddy had a great time watching You-tube videos and couch dancing with me. It was great to have the time to just relax together!!

Maddy and the garden fresh tomatoes

Maddy loves the tomatoes from Grandma Kathy's garden. She will have to eat her fill today, since the tomatoes in NJ were finished about a month ago.

It sure is great to see her, and know that she will get to help Michael finish getting the house ready for the rest of us!

Thinking about hiking

It is raining, and I am not ready for the rain. I want to go hiking, and I have a feeling that time is pretty much over for this year.

So, if you want to see some great hike pics, and dream a little about hiking, check out my mom's blog here.

And if, like me, you might want to go hiking the next time the sun comes out, leave a message, and I will call you if such a day comes!!

Dancing through life - Hey, Soul Sister

This is one of our favorite songs to dance to as a family. Mom, Mark and I danced with Maddy to it on Tuesday, and we danced with the older kids today. As my mom says, you gotta love a good ukulele song!

My new weight counter

I am not sure how committed I am to my goal, but it seemed like a good way to track where I am, and at least it gives me something visual to see.

Let me know what you think.....

Ever have one of those experiences where you just wonder if you are in another space time continuum than someone else?

Today, I think I may have temporarily slipped into another universe for a few hours.....hopefully by the time I wake up in the morning, the sky will be blue
