Our weekend has been full of blessings so far. Hubby's job ended Friday, and he starts a new job Tuesday. SOOOO blessed!!!! His new boss says he can take off time whenever he wants to.....
We had some of the grandkids for and overnighter and had a lot of fun--blowing bubbles, board games, Pixar movies, and pizza, and McDonald's.
We get to go to Fairview for a baby blessing with extended family tomorrow and then dinner at our son's house. Monday is fun and games and KFC. AHHHH!!!
Hope your weekend is full of blessings too.

Almost June

Busy week! Attended an Eagle Court, watched it snow, had a Visiting Teaching dinner, had three young men for dinner and games, talked a lot with my brother, got my hair done, went to the Temple,"traveled the world" at FHE (Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, Morocco, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Uruguay, Argentina, and Guatemala) and I'm now ready for an over-nighter with some of my grandchildren. My hubby is still in limbo concerning his job, but we are optimistic. My brother sold his house after having it on the market for a year and a half. If they can't find a new home by the end of June, they will move in with us. Change brings new horizons to our lives. We just have to figure out what the Lord has in store for us. Hopefully June will bring some bright horizons into our lives.

Sometimes we have to wait a while to get a better perspective of why things happen. I'm sure the Lord has a way for us to move on to better things. Yesterday we found out that my husband's job is ending May 28th. THe boss is meeting with another officed supply Thursday, and is hoping to sell the business to them. If so we have a better chance of being employed. Time will tell. We decided to not panic and wait things out. It may actually be a positive thing and we just have to have faith. Hopefully next week by this time we will have a better perspective.

Second Childhood

The joys of round, rainbow colored bubbles! I really enjoyed doing lots of bubbles with my granddaughter yesterday. We also played pick-up sticks, made a tent out of the card table and a sheet, and watched Tom and Jerry cartoons. Oh, the memories! I need to relax and let the child in me take over once in a while. Let's have some serendipity fun! I promise to watch for fun things to do as the weather (hopefully) gets better. I usually make a list of things I would like to do during the summer, but I think I'll try to see things in the light of a child's eyes. Hmmm.... Bring it ON!!!

I have been struggling with my thyroid still, but I see some signs of improvement since I started the medication. I had such a delightful weekend. I went to the Temple Saturday morning with one of the girls in our Ward--she attended the Temple preparation class I taught. Wonderful occasion! Sunday we had some of the kids and grandkids come for Dinner. Two of my sons worked 12 hour shifts that day. I got phone calls from those who couldn't come.
I finished reading "The King of Glory" series by Gerald Lund. Excellent story about the ministry of Christ. That has been a good thing to do while I didn't have energy to do much.
I am so thankful for the blessings of life and family. Onward!
