1. Studying scriptures and praying daily keeps me in tune with inspiration that can come my way.
2. Being grateful for my many blessings helps keeps me focused on the good in my life.
3. Pursuing goals and activities that I love like interacting with family, doing genealogy research, preparing lessons and teaching fills my bucket.
4. Life is good. Looking for serendipity helps....unexpected blessings.
How's your NEW YEAR coming?

Amazing how fast the years fly by and my second born son is now a father of three teenagers and one almost 12 years old pre-teen, busy husband and teacher of Digital Design at UVU. He's a go-getter who accomplishes lots with his time serving others, leading his family, teaching and developing his talents and abilities. Through the years he's been there when I've needed his help with whatever-teaching me all about computers, repairing my digital equipment, coaching his younger brother's soccer team, being a mentor and supporter and great example, calling me often or emailing to see how I'm doing, cooking great meals for family get togethers, listening and asking questions that show that he cares for everyone whether in our family or in the community that surrounds him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Son. Love you always and forever, Mom

Examples: when someone is unkind to you in some way, your immediate reaction is to be unkind in return. Rather than TAKING THINGS PERSONALLY, let the unkind remark pass by you and don't feel the need to immediately DEFEND yourself or REACT with the same unkindness. NOT EASY BUT POSSIBLE. Tomorrow is another day to try again...life is a PROCESS to learn from not just a destination. We can always IMPROVE and congratulate our self for making the effort to improve.
