Random Ramblings

I wish I had the gift of gab like my daughters who seem to be able to blog about anything and everything, but I don't, so I will quit wishing for something I don't have... ha ha fat chance! I have been trying to keep a journal lately because as a presidency we set some goals to do PJS on a personal level (Prayers, Journal, Scriptures) everyday. I have been working hard at doing that and it has been going pretty well. So I think I will just share some things from my journal lately:

March 12: We went to the temple today with our youth. It was really nice. All but one of our active girls were there, so that was cool. We had set a goal to get everyone there, so we came pretty close. The kids had donuts and milk in the cafeteria afterwards and seemed to enjoy that, even when they dropped a chocolate donut on the carpet. Yikes! Good thing we had Mike Grant to clean up.

March 13: We had Ward Conference today. Bishop Hyde talked about tithing and how important it is. He told us of the blessings of paying tithing and some experiences of paying tithing. It was a good talk. President Caldwell talked about being pure and making good choices. President Steenbakkers talked to the youth about dating and relationships. He had some really good information about it. We had a good time visiting with the kids tonight. I am really blessed with wonderful kids! They have such a good grasp on the Gospel and I can see their testimonies growing each day. I am very thankful to the Lord for sending such great children.

March 14: Keesha and Sean have been home for Spring Break. Keesha decided to paint a mural on Savanna's wall with a BYU theme (big surprise there). It is looking really good. Sean did the BYU logo, which turned out really good. I'll post a picture of it when I get a minute. For FHE, we filled out March Madness brackets and Doug gave the lesson. He talked about enjoying life the good times, because we all know there will be bad times so that we can grow and become stronger because of our weaknesses. That kind of worries me a little, because our life is really good right now, no major problems or anything like that.

March 20:  Mat has been playing little league basketball and having lots of fun. They haven't won any games yet.

March 21: Today was kind of boring.

March 22: I didn't do much today.

March 23: We had mutual and the kids practiced their skit for the Stake Talent show. I think it is going to be good. Not much else is going on.

I can see by some of my entries that I need to do more so life won't be so boring. I'm sure I bored all with this, but I thought I should say something on here once in a while. Well, life is good and I hope it stays that way for a long, long time!
