another today.

I just got the Ensign today in the mail. Which is a church magazine that comes out every month. Leaders of our church share articles on many different spiritual matters. I really enjoy reading it, and always get a lot out of it. One of the ones I read tonight was on the use of the blogs and that we can share our faith with our readers.

It is hard to know who all reads your blog. I have a reader that shows me from what city I might be getting a visitor from. I am acctually suprised by the number or readers a day. I feel that for that and many other reasons I need to share my thoughts, and declare that I am a child of God! That's a song we sing every Sunday almost with the little kiddos.

I know that I am a daughter to the King of Kings, the Lord of all Lords, the Beggining and End. I know that He loves me so deeply I cannot begin to comprehend. I know that I do nothing to deserve that gift, and it is given freely with no end. I am so thankful for that. I know that He is always there for each one of his children. He will never leave me or forsake me. I feel that He always hears our prayers, and will always answer them when we wait patiently and quietly. He sometimes uses a gentle voice or prompting. When we soften our hearts, and let the Holy spirit guide us, our paths are directed so clearly. I am thankful that my Heavenly Father is full of forgiveness. I fail him so often. He scoops me up in Thy hand and sets me on my feet again, as I strive to walk the narrow path again. I am so grateful for repentance and the new day of sunshine it may bring to my life. I am so very greatful for my Redeemer. That he died for all of mankind.

That he lives.

In the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ,

The trip...

The best chinese.... I have to go everytime we are near. Nick took me there on one of our first dates!
We were in the neighborhood visiting family and friends to I had to snap a few. Nick's HS Highland. He just had his 10 yr... But it wasn't THAT long ago he was playing on that field.
We went to my favorite breakfast place.. The German pancakes are out of this world!!!! They call it the dutch baby. You eat half of it and you feel like you are about to burst!

We spent a sweet day in Park City together, and went to Dinner with his dad.
Yes those were some crazy girls dressed up dancing for donations! It was hilarious!

went to one of Nick's childhood fav's....

And last but not least all the food... Nick always makes fun of me for taking pics of! I like it!

Inspiring Thoughts

Nick emailed this to me today... I thought it really summed up life. I enjoyed it everyone should read it!

and read it again...
and read it again...

Once in awhile you get an email that has special substance to it. Take to heart and enjoy!
Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland ,

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written."

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument.
Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry;God never blinks.

16. Take a
deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years,will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone for everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift"

Thank you

Thank you everyone for your comments...

I have spent hours and hours reading tutorials and stalking blogs to get to this point... I mean lots of time... Poor Nicky... At least it's football season.... And we have the laptop!!! That is quality time right!!! It is lots of fun!!! Nick has actually been so supportive... He knows it has been a goal of mine for a LONG time.. He is my biggest cheerleader. He is always bragging on me.. That's how it came about doing some pics of our family. It was not nearly as much fun doing it for someone's special day other than our own, because I felt pressured to catch great shots. I am not a professional, and don't plan on being one.

I do it for fun.

I do it because it a creative hobby.

You want to talk hair... I can do it all day, and know I can give you your money's worth. I am trained and well practiced 7 years! OUCH I feel confident I can please the most difficult clients around... I have plenty of them.

So with that being said, I am not starting another business.

After going to bed a 2am last night. I DONT want to be a photographer.

At least the Salon has store hours, and the the computer doesn't. It was a long day on the feet to say the least. Plus we started the diet again, we are on Day 6.

I worked out last night and was sore by the time I got home. I have a lot going for me.

I should end this... It was about saying THANK YOU.
