Good News from California

Noble just called to tell me she passed her last test!!!! She is finished with her grueling language training and now will officially graduate and move on to her technical training in Texas, then on to a two year tour in Korea.

We are so grateful for all the blessings from God to enable her to learn the language and pass the tests. He truly has guided her life and been with her the whole way. Praises to Him for His goodness and mercy.

I get to be with her tomorrow! and then for a whole week; we have plans for lots of girl fun.

Happy Thanksgiving, again.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A simple truth has been growing in my mind and heart--I can either blog about my life or I can live it; but I can't do both (very well).

Today I'm thankful we're financially able to pay for my visit to Noble for her graduation from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. I get to be with her for a WHOLE week!

I'm thankful for all my wonderful boys, including the biggest one. I'm thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all that goes with that. I'm thankful for family and friends; for the beauties of nature and the bounties of life.

I'm thankful for opportunities to grow and develop. In September I was asked to serve as the president of the women's group in our unit of the church. It's a blessing and a challenge in our area, but one I'm grateful for.

I'm really grateful for the miracles of modern technology!

May you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. (It's my favorite holiday.)

Count Your Blessings - 2012

Well it's that time of year again, the second annual Count Your Blessings month of November.

Today I'm thankful that Halloween is over! It is my least favorite holiday and in my opinion could use some renovation and remodeling, but I'll leave that for another day.

Of the two boys at home, only Dr. Hair dressed up and went "trick or treating" as an intrepid Professor/Explorer from the Steampunk era.
