Tough love?

My son ran away today.... He didn't want to change his sprinklers, he finally came home after dark. I asked him where he'd gone, "I was just walking around" "well," says I you just go back outside and walk around until those sprinklers are changed and then you can come home." He went and changed his sprinklers!! It's so nice to have him home! 
Sigh.... Is tough love, tough on the kid, or the Mom?

Things I've learned at the bakery.

You may not believe it, but I do, that even places are affected by the absence of a single person. It seems that every time that Ardell Leaves for more then a day, there are subtle yet obvious mishaps that indicate her absence. What happens isn't so important. But, the knowledge that she is an essential part of the life of the bakery becomes obvious.  I think we all have that much worth, we all have an effect on things and people and events that we are commonly involved in. We all have value beyond compare. So don't misjudge your worth, don't feel as if you are not important don't even let the thought notice you, for we are all more powerful than you can imagine!! 
And that is why I miss you when you're gone.

Christmas tree's 2015

This year getting our tree we had a blast until Braden got stuck. But, we got him out and then we had a blast!! Until Braden got stuck. But,we got him out and then we had a blast... Until.... But... And so we loaded Braden up with firewood found a beautiful tree that me and the girls, with the help of Chance, cut and dragged 1/4 of a mile....I didn't realize we'd cut such a heavy tree until I dragged it the first 1 foot!!! But we're tough, we got it most of the way before Dad took pity on us and drove to where we were. 
With Braden loaded with wood we figured things would go smoother we piled into the pickup to head home we were having a blast until Braden got stuck.... 
But hey I got a good senior picture of Caib👍🏼and I'm sure we'll make it home...eventually!

He Knows

I've been so aware of the spirit today, Roger and  his councilors gave  excellent talks in sacrament meeting . In fact I have been blessed to have felt the spirit within me all week. I've been praying for direction and guidance from the spirit, the response has been sweet. In this world where there is so much evil and filth. Where the Devil is making his selfish greedy desire to control and rule more evident than ever. the Lord has and can fill our lives with the beauty of his ways. I feel Him near me. I love Him. I don't know how it works but, I know that He knows me and he understands and as I lift the chin of my heart and deny fear in any form to control me, He can make me aware of his ever present love and fill me with power.
