I love looking at old things and wondering what "memories"
they have accumulated and helped create.
Who used to drive this old truck? Was it used for work? For fun? What views has this old truck seen? Where has it been? There are so many lessons we can learn from history. I need to remember to write down my history more and to study the history of my ancestors so it's not forgotten forever.
Poor Brad. With two herniated discs in his neck, this is the most comfortable position he can find lately. It's been a humbling and growing experience. We have both gained a greater appreciation for good health and for having bodies that work right. We are excited to get his body working right again.
There are times I have felt like life is spiraling out of control.
Or at least out of MY control.
Just when I think thinks have taken such a turn that I'll never get it back where I wanted it, I'm reminded that there is a grander plan, one greater than my own, that my life is following. I stand back and see where He has blessed me and I can unwind and enjoy the ride.
While doing this photo shoot, I asked the oldest to "put his arm around his little brother's neck." He immediately put him in a choke hold and started rubbing his head with his knuckles. The littlest guy got in on the action too. They made me laugh. It reminded me of growing up with four of my own brothers.
The idea behind this blog came about from President Eyring's talk in General Conference. He asked that we take the time each day to write down the ways we had recognized God's hand in our lives. In doing so, we will be more grateful and even more blessed.
This is my effort to do so....
Because my family is one of my greatest blessings, there will be a lot of pictures of them. Please forgive my indulgence and Enjoy.
