videoToday is my wonderful grandmother's 87th birthday.
She is amazing and lovely and fantastic. She is always caring and kind. You will never meet a more generous person; she has literally given the clothes off her back.
If there is any way I could possible resemble her in any way, then I would consider myself a success.
Happy Birthday Grandma!!!

Public recognition is a better motivator than money

I work for the coolest company ever!!! They held a raffle for all those who worked overtime during the first of the year and I won an iPad Mini!!!
I was so shocked!!
It is amazing how wonderful it is to feel valued by your employers and get recognition for your hard work.
Public recognition is a better motivator than money.

I Need a Kleenex

I spent all day doing laundry and cleaning my apartment.
I washed nearly everything I own.
I am very physically tired and yet I cannot sleep.
I have been lying in bed for hours but the cleaning fumes are keeping me awake.
Plus, I have a cold that will not go away.
I guess I should be happy that at least I can breathe through my nose,
Even if all I smell is Clorox.

Spring Chickens

My mom is a backyard farmer and raises chickens. This will be her third summer with the coop and she is adding 8 more chickens to her flock!

Third Round Chicks:

It is going to be so fun to watch these chicks grow this spring!! There are few things more adorable than baby animals. These pictures are from this afternoon when the chicks are 5 days old.
So soft, so little.

Valentine's Day 2015 Morning

This was a most excellent Saint Valentine's Day.
The day started with my nephew getting baptized and joining the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so proud of him for choosing to follow the example of our Savior and being baptized by immersion by one who holds the proper authority. I could feel so much love in the chapel when Aaron was confirmed a member and given the gift of the Holy Ghost. I could feel the love of our Heavenly Father for all of His children, and how happy He is when we start on our path back to His presence with the ordinance of Baptism. The Plan of Salvation is true and wonderful, and it is only made possible by our Savior, Jesus Christ who preformed the ultimate act of love by suffering for our sins in Gethsemane and again on the cross at Golgotha. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ lives and because He lives, I know we all will live again and we will have the opportunity to live with our families and our Father in Heaven for all eternity.
Not only could I feel the love of God for His children, I felt the love of my earthly father. I felt like he was there with us, watching over us, and that he was proud of his posterity. The veil is thin, especially in life event days, and I love knowing my dad is still with us in spirit. We will one day be reunited and never separated again. The love of God and the love in our Eternal Family is amazing.
Witnessing Aaron's baptism was the best way to celebrate this day of love, in all its forms. I am lucky to be loved so greatly and that I get to feel love so powerfully.
Hope and love are the greatest feelings in the universe.

Valentine's Day 2015

Lesley and I went to buy ourselves a Valentine treat. We went to Charming Charlie's jewelry and accessory store. I bought these cute earrings but I'm not sure if I love them or not. Are they too weird? Do I love them because they are weird? Yes! I love things that are different.
We stopped at Walgreen's on Thursday night to look for Valentine stuff for our office and I saw these Hello Kitty Valentines. I did not buy them but I thought they were super cute. I love anything Hello Kitty; Always Have and I Always Will.
Happy Valentine's Day!!! ❤️
