“What could you do better for your children and your children’s children than to record the story of your life, your triumph over adversity, your recovery after a fall, your progress when all seemed black, your rejoicing when you had finally achieved? Some of what you write may be humdrum dates and places, but there will also be rich passages that will be quoted by your posterity.”
Life is full of heartache and pain, but today I choose to
concentrate on all of the blessings that are in my life.
My focus today… my daughter!
My little baby girl is not so little anymore. She will be
married this Friday, May 11, 2012.How
did that happen?Wasn’t it just
yesterday that I was up at Primary Children’s Hospital praying and hoping for a
I got just that, a miracle!I am so thankful for my sweet little girl;
she will always be MY little girl.
Sometimes as a Mother, I think, did I do everything I could
to teach her to be the best woman she can be?Make the best choices? Did she turn out the way I wanted her to?
My answer, YES!Megan has made me so proud.From
a 1 pound 5 ounce baby girl, to a beautiful, smart, loving girl… she has made
I am excited for this new chapter in Megan’s life.She will make an amazing wife and someday
I hope through my example and her Nana’s example, she
will become everything and more of what I know she can be!
I love you Megan, here is to a wonderful life full of all
the blessings that you deserve!
We have the best Ward!I
am so thankful for the love and support that we have in our Ward.Not only has it been shown through the
kindness shown by throwing Megan a Bridal Shower, but when the going gets tough
for anyone in our neighborhood, our Ward family is there for you!My cup runneth over by the sweet friendships
that I am lucky enough to have with all of these wonderful women!
As we were talking at the shower, some of them were asking me
about the wedding plans and what they can do to help.I said, “We decided to get a package deal at
the reception hall because it was a little bit easier for me.Since my Mom has passed away and I don’t have
any sisters’ I thought that would make it a little less stressful”.My neighbor Lorna said, “Wait a minute, you
have a room full of Sisters right here!”.I don’t think she will know how much that meant to me.We were so lucky to be able to move into this
neighborhood, the kindness is so appreciated!
This was such a great Shower that my Sisters'-In-Law gave for Megan. The food was SO good, Chicken Teriyaki Pasta Salad (Delish), Yummy Sandwiches, Fruit (of course with Dip), Refreshing Punch and an amazing Lemonade Cake!
Megan received some wonderful gifts. We have a pretty great family, I must say!
Russ is my Hero! I am so proud of Russ with his Air Force Service. Not only is he my Hero, he is a wonderful Husband, Father and Friend. He is committed to Family, God and Country and is a devoted employee to his civilian job as a Broker with First West Benefit Solutions. Oh, he is also my golf coach!

Megan... What can I say! Megs is such a good person! She is one of a kind, a little drama and perhaps a little dingy but knows what she wants and goes after it and gets it done.

Funny thing, Dayzee is the "Alpha Dog"! She is sweet, we love her!
Spike aka "Beast"
Who can resist a face like this? Spike is a lover, not a fighter!
Like Father Like Son
At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
