Happy Birthday Kelli

Kelli was born 33 years ago today. It was raining, I was suppose to start a new temp. job, but of course that did not happen. She was born 3 weeks early. I can still remember this as if it happened just yesterday. She was my first and I love every minute of it. She was a beautiful baby and slept late. I am so grateful she is my daughter and I love her with all my heart. Happy Birthday Kelli!!!!!

I was setting here looking at my past posts when the thought hit me that I need to be a better blogger. I am not a very good writer(as the rest of you) and nothing really exciting happens very often. I lead a rather boring life, compared to the rest of you family bloggers out their. So I have come to the conclusion that I need to get some fun in my life.

I am going to start a temp. job on Monday, one that I have done every tax season for the past 4 years. It is great to have a job. The money is running out. I am blessed that it last up until another jobs comes along.

Here's to a better year!!!!!!!!!!!

Going on a Mission

My friend Gina son is going on a mission in March to Brazil. She posted this poem. I thought it was great, so I wanted to share it with you.

This Year for Christmas

I skipped the sales after Thanksgiving.
The thrill just wasn't there.
No pictures taken with Santa Claus,
my decorating has no flair.
His presents are shoes, shirts and ties,
two suits and fun.
I've bought him all white clothes because
This year, I'm giving Christ my son.

I've spent more time in the temple,
Felt strength come from His words.
I've reread the Ensign,
and my testimony stirred.
Our family prays more frequently
My tears are quick to run.
Abraham seems closer because...
This year I'm giving Christ my son.

I wonder how those Lamanite mothers
gave their sons to war.
Or how the pioneers chose Zion,
their sacrifice was so much more.
My loss will be his presence,
I'll miss his smile a ton.
For two years we will pray for him,
I'm giving Christ my son.

I stare at his face when he's not looking
I memorize his eyes, their shine.
He's always hungered for the part of him
that makes his soul divine.
The stories and lessons he always heard
His choice and mine are one.
I'll put my faith in God's hand,
This year, I'm giving Him my son.

Past gifts have lost their glitter,
I think I finally understand
Christ's birth should be celebrated
by giving Him a hand.
It's because I know Christ lives and reigns
that all his packing's done.
My gift has taken nineteen years to make
This year...I'm giving Christ my son.

Old Boyfriends

I just found out that a boy I use to date is now an author and motivational speaker. He wrote the book "The Happiness Factor".

Go here to see

When I met Kirk he was 19 and I was 26. We met at a YSA. It was good for my soul, because he pursued me. The age gap was to great. But we did have fun while it lasted.
