Finding Balance and Enjoying Life


I hope I am  back to  blogging!
It has been awhile.  I am sorry about that,
But sometimes life just gets in the way of extra
things you would like to do.


I have been busy. . . .thank goodness
for BUSY!

And most of all thank goodness for talents
that allow me to create and enjoy what I am doing.

Do you ever find it hard to have balance in your life?
I think it is an ongoing thing to try and find balance.
That is one of the reason I had to stop blogging for
a period of time.
I just could not find the time to do everything I wanted to
do and the things I feel I need to do.
Blogging is one of the things I like to do.
And I want to do.


I thought when I was a young wife and mother that eventually
things would slow down, and it would be easier to find 
balance once my children grew older.
I thought the demand placed on me would become easier.

Oh no! I was wrong.

I think I am busier now than I have ever been.
Now don't get me wrong. . .I love serving my family and
my friends. . .but sometimes I forget to serve myself.

It is all about BALANCE and ENJOYING each phase of LIFE.

I am going to try to have balance, and enjoy life
and make the time to serve myself.

Value and Cherish Family

The value of listening to our children can never be under-estimated.  
Spending time as families talking, listening. and enjoying each
others company is more critical than ever before.

We live in troubled times.  The recent events of the past few weeks 
have stunned many people.  We wonder what is happening 
in our society. 
We blame everyone and everything for the problems we are having.

Maybe we need to take a good look within!
In my honest and humble opinion this all started many, many years ago.
with the break down of the family!

Now is the time for change.
Families must come first. . our children
need the constant attention from caring, loving
parents, grandparents, extended family members.
friends, and neighborhoods.





A very powerful message.

The Things I Love

The Things I Love
Always and always at the top of my Love List is 
my family.  I am amazed at the beautiful family I have.
I have had the love of my life my husband Lloyd,
who loved my with all his heart.  When he died at 48 years of age
I thought my heart would never recover. . it didn't.
But my life has been blessed and full of joy.
Family is the most important thing in life.
It is true what the Prophets have told us.
"Nothing in life will matter, if you haven't the love
of your children"
AND
"Nothing will compensate for failure in the Home."
I love the season.
I think Nature is in full glory right now.
The weather is perfect, the earth is changing.
And I like the change.
I love the sound of children laughing.
They are happy little souls.
It makes me happy to hear them laugh.
I love the scriptures.
I read them every day.  And I love the time I spend
reading the words of God.
It gives me comfort, it gives me strength.
I love the Scriptures.
The Scriptures have done so much for me.
I love Church's
I love how we build beautiful buildings to worship in.
I know it doesn't matter how humble or grand a church building
may be, I love them.
The steeple, points upward to the heavens. 
It is a symbol of our love and devotion to God.
I love to read, therefore I love books.
I am very selective with what I read.
I like a good book, that can carry me away.
It is good to read, I am thankful I was taught in my 
young years to love reading.
I love books.  I love to hold the book.  I love to turn the pages.
And I love to READ.

So what do you love. . 
You are unique and what you love will be
unique to you.

Have a wonderful day.
And be Thankful!

Beautiful Spring Time.

Just a few little thoughts I have today.
It is the last day of April and I am still wondering
where oh where does the time go?
I remember my Papa telling me the older you get
the faster time goes.  Well, as always my Papa is right.
The funny thing is so much happens in a day and yet
the day ends and we begin another and another day.
Sometimes I have to pause and savor moments, even seconds
because I know time is fleeting.  I am living my future right now.
I am in my late sixties.  There was a time when I thought 
late sixties was a long ways down my path of life.
Ha! it is here and I am living it.  I think of how fast the last
20 years have gone, and I look to my future and wonder
if I will make it another 20 years.  
I go to the Temple each month
it is there that I feel the peace of the Savior 
and I am able to gain the proper perspective of life.
There is no end of days.  There is no end to life.
But there are seasons of life and seasons of days.
Yesterday I pondered in my heart the season I am in
at this time.  There are many blessings and gifts to this season of time.
I am thankful to embrace my season, and live my life to the fullest.
I just pray I may always be in harmony with my Savior and Heavenly Father.
They have given me so much.
It is Springtime where I live.  My Springtime has passed.
When I was in the Springtime of my life I don't think I realized
how precious it was, I rushed through it.  I believe it takes time and
years of experience to understand the preciousness of seasons.
Time passes, and with each day holds precious moments.
Now I don't want to rush, I want to take my time and enjoy.
Springtime in the Valley.

Tulips are a sign of Springtime.

Springtime Color
Spring in my Home
My little Teddy loves to photo bomb!
What a character he is.
I have gone from raising annoying children to
raising annoying fur babies.
They both a require a high degree of tolerance and love.
In return they give me so much love and company
And friendship.
I can't complain, I am thankful.
I have a small backyard that is screaming for me to take care of it.
But, I just want to putter. . .I don't want to rush through
pulling weeds, and cleaning up the winter.
But, alas, I guess that is what this season is.
Cleaning up the past. And making new again.

Always look for the sunshine in your life even when
the darkness seems to be all that you see.
There is Light!

Things May Be Changing

Well, things are happening. . as always
I may be changing the format of this blog.
Let me tell you my story.
I recently made some wonderful connections with my
Distant cousins from the Daley side of my family.
Because you see I am a  Daley and I love family and I
Especially love finding cousins.
This cute Daley cousin started it all.
My second cousin Jeanine and her Daddy Dean.
She found me on Family Search.
She contacted me. . and the rest is history.
She and her wonderful Dad came to visit me at my home.
I shared with them my book I had made several years ago.
Lots of pictures of the Daley Family.
Her Grandmother, Winona, was my Grandpa Jean's baby sister.
We share the same Great-Grandparents. . 
Graham Little Daley and Margaret Eva Simonds Daley.
We are so blessed to have found each other.
And our bond was immediate.
She is just a delightful gal. . .so thankful to call her cousin.
This past Tuesday we met with other cousins.
My Aunt Madeline Emma Daley Wilson was able to be with us.
She has lots of stories to tell of the family.
Along with cousins,
Jane Ann Wilson Draper and Cora Jean Wilson Jolly who are my
first cousins, and daughter to Aunt Madeline.
Blaine and Carolyn Wood and Nina and Dick Payne
Maurine Johnson Hurst and Ruth Daley Mathnvnk
Also joined us.
Madeline and I shared our Daley books. . and shared the stories of our
Daley Family.
I made copies for everyone there. . It was a most delightful and spiritual
time that we spent together.  
We want more of our family to join with us.
We want the Daley Cousins to come together.
There are so many we don't know where they are.
I am going to be sharing on this blog some of my stories and pictures of
My Daley family.
I hope if anyone out in blog land sees this blog and would like to contribute
To please contact me, and join in the gather of our family.
Families are Forever
And we must keep the connection going while here on this earth.
Hope you will come back and see the pictures I have to share
And the stories I have.
Hugs to all.
