I don't know what to name this BLOG. Right now I am listening to the song "Jesus was No Ordinary Man." The spirit is so strong. The house is clean, the t.v. is off, and it is just nice and peaceful. It is a place dad would like to be as well as our Heavenly Father and Savior. I am listening to Your LDS Radio. It is AWESOME.

I am now a HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHER IN THE STATE OF IDAHO.!!!!! YEAH!!!! I passed the Praxis II and am very excited.

This is the closest I have felt to dad in the last 7 months. I can feel his spirit. I miss him so much. I remember him at my wedding being my "flower girl." I'll never forget that. "To "BELIEVE" is to have faith in." Sometimes it is really hard to BELIEVE and have faith in. I want every one who reads this to know that I have a testimony of the gospel. I love it with all my heart. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that President Monson is a Prophet of God. I know all of these things, but why is it so hard to do everything you need to.

I miss you all. I can't wait to see all of you again. It seems like a long time since I have seen any of you. I guess I just need to make it a priority to get up to my mom's place. Everyone have a great day. Hopefully I will see you soon.

FAMILY, FAMily, Family!!!!

This past week and a half my husband and I were priviliged to have all the kids with us. It was very nice. We did things that ranged from ice blocking to going to the park and playing baseball.
Family is very important to us. When we are able to have the kids with us we just want to do everything possible for them. That is a feeling I think you feel only when you have kids. Just wanting to give everything you have to them. I'm sure you can have that kind of feeling other times in your life, but that feeling is a very different feeling. I love these children so much, and I want them to have everything that I had when I grew up. I guess it comes down to all you can give them is your love. These kids are great, and I wish everyone would have a chance to meet them. Having these kids in my life is very special to me, as well as having a good guy in my life.
I guess the main thing I am trying to say is love your family. They are them ones that will always stick by you.

Daily Living

Well, I guess it is time I write a new post on my BLOG. I guess in short things are going well. School will be out in five weeks, my students did well on ISAT's today, and I am feeling well. All in all I believe things are going great. Neill is working hard at the Hampton in as a trial run through the Deseret Industries Training Program, now if we could get our Internet back and I didn't have to come to the library to BLOG that would even be better. Well, everyone out their have a wonderful day. Talk to you later.

A New Perspective on Life

I really don't know what to say in this "post." I am just numb. I am somebody who misses her dad a lot. I wish I could just go and give my dad a hug.

One thing I don't regret though is that I spent a lot of time with my dad before he passed on. We went on rides to the Dry Farm where he grew up, we would go to Wendy's and get Frosty's, but the most important thing we did was we talked. We talked about everything. Even though he would say, "Now what were we talking about." He had such good advice on everything from how to live your life fully, to how to have the best and most fulfilled marriage. If I had questions about life I knew my dad would steer me in the right direction even if I had to repeat the question over and over. My dad was so full of wisdom, he would go out of his way to help anyone he could. One of the best things about dad was his sense of humor. He was alway laughing at a joke or telling a joke.

I know in my heart he is better off where he is at. It is just that my heart is breaking right now and longing to be with him. He was a great man, and I hope that I can make my mom and him proud of me so I will be worthy to be with them in the eternities.

On Jan 8, 2010 at 6:05 my father passed away. It was so peaceful. My dad was in so much pain, and to see him not be in any pain anymore was such a relief.

On Jan 11, 2010 we had his funeral and laid him to rest in the Sugar City, ID Cemetary. I am so glad he was my "father." I am glad I was able to be his daughter.
Dad, I love you, and someday I will see you again. Take care.
Love your daughter,

Losing Those You Love

I found out some sad news right before Christmas. My dad had gotten sicker and didn't have much time to live. I think I am still in shock. Sometimes it hits me that he is getting sicker and the tears start to flow. However, I feel like I need to be there for my family, and especially to help out with my dad in anyway I can.

In my heart I know he doesn't want to live this way. If he could express himself he would say let me go. How do I say good-bye. The only thing that gives me solace is the knowledge that we are an "Eternal Family," and that I have an understanding husband. This picture was taken when he was at a better stage of his Alzheimer's disease and cancer.

I love my mom so much. I don't know how she makes it, but she is always turning to our Heavenly Father. She is a wonderful example to me. I have wonderful parents, and a wonderful family. I just plan to continue to turn to my Heavenly Father and Savior. I know my "Elder Brother" has experienced everything so I know he knows how I am feeling. I hope we all remember our Savior knows what we are going through.
