Day 217

We were able to take a moment as a family yesterday
afternoon to get out of the house, enjoy the sun,
explore a little bit of nature and to sit
and throw rocks into the water.
It was marvelous. I love our time together.
I'm so grateful for my family.

Day 216

This "flower" is amazing to me.
It was on a tree that was just starting to bud.
As I looked at this flower I was amazed at the grace,
beauty and elegance I saw. But I also saw signs of
aging and some delicate edges have faltered.
But in my opinion all that just
adds to the beauty of the whole flower.
It reminded me that in life, all our
trials, if we pass through them
in a humble and meek way will only
add to the beauty of our whole being.

This child of mine is such a good little conscience for me.
She keeps me on the straight and narrow.
She helps fill our house with the spirit
by singing Primary songs all day long.
Her favorite song as of late has been,
"I Love To See The Temple."
It's such a great reminder to me to
take advantage of having the temple
close to me and to go more often.

We spent our day in the Emergency Room
at Primary Children's Hospital.
We will spend the next day in the hospital.
We have a very very sick little girl.

what was necessary to help her get better.
They are truly a class act.

I'm grateful for opportunities that we are given that might take us down paths we didn't include in our plan. Whenever I have exercised faith in my Heavenly Father's plan over my own, I've never felt disappointed or let down with the blessings He has given me. Our Father can bless us with the things that are best for us, whether we know we need them or not.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to have a holiday celebrating our Savior and His resurrection.

Day 192

This little bird was singing his heart out while
sitting atop a tree covered in snow.
It made me smile. He wasn't letting a
little bit of snow get him 'down.'
It was just another reminder to me to keep
singing and smiling through the rough spots.
