My goodness where does the time go? I had a very good weekend. I went to Payson, Utah to stay over night with my Aunt Diane and Uncle Jerry. I always love staying there. They live in my Grandma Dot's home. I was raised in that home surrounded with the love of my Grandma. The older I become the more I love my Grandmother. That is a whole other blog. . . . and one day I will devote a full blog to her. Anyway my stay with my Auntie and Uncle was wonderful. They reaffirm the love of family and the great circle I have been blessed with. I also went to my best friend's birthday/retirement party. It was a surprise to her! Me, and Caren Kirk (Curtis), Jeannine Patton (Provestggard) and Judy Wightman (Cook) really enjoyed being there to help celebrate Vickie's birthday and retirement. There is just one more "friend" that turns 60 this year, Christie is the last one. (Note the picture at the side). My friends are another blessing in my life. It is unique for old friends from high school to still be so close. We truly watch over one another. Caren is really good to make sure all of us our happy in our 'nests'.
Between old friends, my auntie and uncle, and listening to conference I feel much better. I realize more fully I am blessed with the tender mercies of the Lord. I will be forever thankful I made right choices in my life. I come from a wonderful family, I have been and continue to be blessed by great friends, and I am LDS, trying the best I can to live a good life. I am as imperfect as can be but somehow the Lord is blessing me. I cry to him daily to be with me always, and to help me fulfill the mission he has set for me. I cherish life and I know it can change in seconds. I want the Great God of all to know I am Thankful always to Him.
