Yesterday was my Birthday... (I case you had not heard)
I really feel so blessed that I am where I am at this moment of my life.
There have been other moments where my heart hurt so much that I did not think it would be possible to move forward.. There have been moments that I felt like my entire life had crumbled.. But, right now is the best moment. I hope the snap shots that I keep in my heart will always be these ones.. of a Happy marriage, Happy children, Happy family, Happy Me~

My Life has been blessed, it's a gift from our Father in Heaven~

Once upon a time when I was 18 years old my Brother and Sister-in-Law gave me my very own baby niece to play with.

She prayed for me that I would get married.

We were best friends.

She was always a joy to me.

Congratulations Heather & Stuart Welker~

She that inspires Me~

For a while now myself and many of my other Blogger pals have read a blog that inspires us to be more..
NieNie Dialogues it is written by, Stephanie Aurora Clark Nielson.
She now writes of her journey and life, of surviving, of Motherhood & Marriage.
She and her husband were in a plane crash just over a year ago.. read more at her blog.

For some readers it is an inspiration to be a better cook, home decorator, craft/party planner extraordinaire, writer, wife, mother, daughter, sister & friend.
But the thing I bet we all read it for it to watch and learn how to be more loving to ourselves & how to endure life and all it's trial with a realistic outlook .. and she helps us know that God is always with us.. ALL~

Rune and I read it together. We use it as a reminder to love each other more fully and to enjoy our life's in every moment. We have tried t odo and be more loving in our actions and thoughts towards others, we have had FUN remembering to be better friends.

I am always touched by her words..

Well, Wednesday October 7th she will be on Oprah.. I am Not an Oprah watcher.. But You can bet that the tivo will be used ;)

So, If you want to watch something that will make you feel and grow please take a look and see what I mean.

Dinner by Candle Light

This week for our Family Home Evening we had dinner by candle light. Sam wanted to eat like the pioneers. (they are talking about pioneers in 3 grade.) So after we said the payer Sam said "This is just like how the Pioneers had it, right Mom?" I looked around and said , "It's really close pal!" I did not want to ruin it for him by mentioning that they did not have a fridge that magically poped out crushed ice.. or a convenient Fred Meyer to buy their Marion Berry pie at. I am guessing they also had no Ikea plastic glass's.. And I do NOT remember hearing any old time family stories about my great grandparents crossing the country just so they could pick up pear scented candles at Walmart for a buck! :)

For Sam, it was a great pioneer night! That's all that counts right?
