I always thought I would have years to write my history and wondered why I should write it anyway.

Lately I have felt that time is very short and it needed to be done and yet it is something I do not want to do.
Maybe because I am not sure how it will be received by those who read it and if it will ever be read and believed.

I was born in Prove, Utah.

My Mom had a very hard time delivering me and nearly died.

My soft spot on my head was closed so I was to have the fate of a small head and many other challenges of life.
Dad was overseas [during World War 2] flying out of India and over the hump.
For several weeks he did not know he had a daughter.

I went home to 184 West Main St, American Fork, Utah, to live at Grandpa Glen and Grandma Leila’s home.

God Will Bless and Prosper You
“Our Father in Heaven has promised that
you will ‘mount up with wings as eagles
[you] shall run, and not be weary;
[you] shall walk, and not faint.’
‘shall not be deceived.’ God will bless and prosper you.
The gates of hell shall not prevail against you;
. . . and the Lord God will
the powers of darkness from before you,
and cause the heavens to shake for your good,
and his name’s glory.’ ”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“To gain a testimony,
you must nourish it
step by step.
‘[Your testimony] will
increase as you make
decisions to keep the
As you lift and
strengthen others,
you will see your
testimony continue to develop.’ ”

Well I have been lost in a fog.
Decided this week is a bust and best left behind.
I put my tooth thru mylip (had a fat lip)
and fell on Baileysue, and staggered into walls.
No I was not drunk the meds Dr

Fan the Flame of Their Spiritual Core
“We hold in our arms the rising generation.
They come to this earth with important
responsibilities and great spiritual capacities.
We cannot be casual in how we prepare them.
Our challenge as parents and teachers is not
to create a spiritual core in their souls
but rather to fan the flame of their spiritual
core already aglow with the fire
of their premortal faith.”

Well I have been away from
my blog for a time.
I sure know how to stir up
my family and not make
friends or influence people.
I still believe what I said
in the letter to my family
is needed. We need to pull
together as C and N children
and not become a house divided.
The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Of whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life.
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked-- even my enemies
and my foes--came upon me to eat up my flesh,
they stumbled and fell.
Though a host should encamp
against me,my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident.
One thing have I desired of the Lord
is that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house
of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord
,and to inquire in his temple.
Psalm 27: 1-5

Well you know me liked that quote
so much had to use it twice to
remind myself about painting a
happy picture for today
no matter how I may feel.
I love you all and pray your
painting for today my be
full of color and memories
Each day is a new canvas to paint upon.
Make sure your picture is full of life
and happiness, and at the end
of the day you don't look at it
and wish you had painted
something different.

Have your ever felt like sharing and just don't know how?
That would be me.
Sometimes I think I have nothing to share
and then there are times when I am afraid to.
Today is the 4th of July and always
before their were things to do not today.
It is Sunday and no one is awake at 4:45 pm.
Nice... and better than last year.
Accident with tempers flaring
and angry words said.
Peoples lives change and so did mine.
Today I am thankful for a peaceful
in which to attend church
and be with my animals.
Good things happen when
you least expect them to !!!!!!!!

…happy life begins with taking charge of our actions.
It means making the choice to act rather
than react to the whims of others…
It’s almost always the better path to
take the extra moment to consider
our response to others and to life,
and to act rather than react.
In that extra moment we have
the opportunity to hear God’s
soft voice and every time we make
the decision to listen to the softer
voice we will be able to
refrain from reacting.
God’ soft voice will guide us to do
the loving thing, to speak the kind word,
to walk away from the situations
that are escalating into ugly scenes

Change your mind your life will follow
