Wednesday's Wisdom

In this mortal experience, we cannot control all that happens to us, but we have absolute control over how we respond to the changes in our lives. This does not imply that the challenges and trials we face are of no consequence and easily handled or dealt with. It does not imply that we will be free from pain or heartache. But it does mean that there is cause for hope and that due to the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can move forward and find better days--even days full of joy, light, and happiness.

W. Christopher Wadell, 2nd Counselor Presiding Bishopric
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Best Friends

Noble was home for our 5th annual Family Reunion. The time was too short and went by much too fast. Sure love my best girlfriend.

An Updated Family Photo

I think the last family photo I shared was from Lt. Lehi's USMC graduation in 2014. Here's a newer one from his wedding last November. We lined up in height order, PFCMom is the plump shrimp on the left. Then Noble (27), TopDad, Lt. Lehi (25), Mr. Movie (20), Dandylion (18), and JET (23).

I actually used to feel tall at 5'7" as a young adult. Not so much anymore. I feel like a little old lady when the chuns come home. I fit under the chin of all the boys! And Noble towers over me in her heels. JET is tallest at 6'4". I LOVE them all!

A Good Hair Day

Sometimes my hair cooperates and looks pretty good. This was one of those days. 

I thought I'd better capture it on camera to preserve it.

New Look

We bought a great RV trailer last summer and thoroughly enjoyed our trips with it. It's just right for the two of us now.


I think the decor is dark and pretentious, as if it's trying to be a high class hotel. I don't like it so I'm replacing the window coverings to begin a change of atmosphere to be more in line with, well, something fun, like vacation.

Original curtains and blinds in the bedroom. 

New curtains on TopDad's side of the room.

This is how they open.

I have pink on my side--see the button to hold them open?

I fell in love with this tropical bird fabric and I think it's lots more fun!
