Our Dear Prophet...President Gordon B. Hinckley

Sunday evening came as a little shock for me. My heart ached, but was filled with both sorrow and joy as I envisioned our dear Prophet joined with his darling wife, Savior, and Father. I could just picture his huge grin and some smart comment he would make as he entered---"well, its about time" or something of that manner.

I had just put Mace and Keston down for the evening when I received a phone call from my mother about 8:00 p.m. I decided I would go and talk to mace since he was still awake in His bed---mostly becuase I just needed one of his super hugs! I hugged him as I started to cry when I told him President Hinckley died. "Why mom?" was his straight forward question---I told him his body was tired and he had worked hard and now he would be in Heaven. "I know thats a good place huh." We continued our conversation and then Mace said, "I can pray." (referring to my tears and he thought I was scared----when we have bad dreams I have taught him to pray for protection from our Father in Heaven) So, I said sure and let him pray. It was so cute as he blessed heaven, and our propet died, and his spirit. When he finished---he looked up at me and said, he has MatR (my brother's dog who died)---I said yes he does have MatR with him. And that thought seemed to make everything fine---because everybody needs a good dog righ:)

We love our dear prophet and we still pray for him daily---Mace blesses his spirit in Heaven. As I listend and watched any coverage on TV and heard our prophet bear his testimony---I was filled with a desire to be better and do better in every aspect of my life. You can not listen to his words and not know what he speaks is true and of God. What an amazing example of our faith to the world. We love him and will miss him. Here is a video tribute that I really enjoyed and wanted to share--click below.

Little Stinker!

Okay this was too funny today and I had to write it down...
I just finished getting the kids lunch ready and getting them up to the table, so I ran outside in my T-shirt and crocs to get the mail. Got the mail and ran back to the door and as I turn the door handle ---it doesn't budge! Mace had locked me out of the house! I expected him to be standing by the door ready to open it---but no. I rang and rang the door bell and then tried all the doors----and of course they are all locked---because I have a fetish about that. Anyway I am freezing cold---stomping through the snow drifts to access our hidded key----boy was I upset! I could hear Keston crying for me and still could not see Mace through the window---so getting a little nervous and more frustrated with Mace by the minute. Anyway, finally get the door open and ready to scold Mace----but where did I find him....down stairs on the potty ---WAITING FOR ME to wipe his bum! He couldn't get the door---because he needed help----so needless to say he got out of that one pretty good. And as I tried to explain that it was dangerous for him to lock me out ----all he could tell me about that he REALLY went poop! There's a three-year-old for ya! Moral of the story---make sure you have a couple of keys hidden outside and at least one dead bolt has a keyhole lock---:) have a wonderful day!

Thought for the Day...

I just had a wonderful weekend at our Stake Women's conference and have so much that I want to share---but still typing up my thoughts and feelings, so I will share more later. But had to share this little thought that Emily Watts shared---since Monday is our laundry day---or one of them!


I thought this was great---since I always get frustrated with the endless loads of washing and basket of ironing---but hey, it's not going to bug me anymore! Have a happy laundry day:)
