Rich blessings

Today I am filled with the love of my Heavenly Father. I am so blessed with a devoted husband, loving children, darling grandchildren, and special friends. My husband is so patient, thoughtful, loving, and fun. He buys me flowers regularly, takes me out to eat, takes me for rides (the Spruces is beautiful this time of year), and does laundry. Today I decided to go for a walk around the block. The first thing I saw was my cute grandchildren heading out for school and holding hands. So special! The outdoors is beautiful even in the bleak days of winter. My children are such special adults and I admit some pride at all they have accomplished. My dear friends bring sunshine to my life by just being there and listening to each other. Today we go to lunch for our monthly social--laugh and talk! It's perfect therapy! We are also going to the Temple tonight. It has been so strengthening to go as often as we do. We have evidence of our Heavenly Father's love in so many ways. Who could ask for anything more.

February, the month of Love

There are so many things I love--not just because of Valentine's Day. I love the smiles of my family, the giggles of grandchildren, the hugs of friends, the squeeze of hubby's hand, the smell of yummy food, the beauty of a sunset, the time with extended family, the hope for camping trips soon, a gentle rain, a funny story, a lovely hairdo, good news, a good book, a card in the mail, a new sewing project, finding a missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle, music, the beauty of time in the Temple, the blessings of the gospel, and the miracles of life.
