Shining Moments

This weekend was General Conference. Twice a year, instead of going to our regular church services, the entire church is invited to watch/listen to the church leadership speak via satellite or on http://www.lds.org/. One particular talk was especially poignant for me. On the Sunday afternoon session, Elder Ballard spoke to the young mother's of the church. He seemed so in touch with the challenges that all young mother's face. I loved that he instructed husbands to give their wives days off from taking care of the kids. (Not just hours.) As I was trying to listen to the talk, and take care of a very needy toddler, I was able to write one quote that I love. Motherhood is made up of "Shining moments of joy and satisfaction". If I cross-stitched - I would cross-stitch that and hang it up. Wait. No I wouldn't. I would never hang up a cross-stitch. I will just write it in my planner.

Here are a couple shining moments from this morning. Shane is building a swing set and Lydia can't quite wait until it is all the way done...

Whatever happened to the good ol days when the slides were metal and you would fry your thighs if you had shorts on? I miss Pendleton. And Progress Elementry.

Back then they made metal slides because the plastic was being used on toy horses. You know, the ones that would crack at the seam on the saddle - right where you'd sit- and pinch your butt every time the horse bounced up? Good ol' Arnold.

Ok. . .I guess I'm 80 years old or something because I actually like to cross stitch. I haven't done it in years but I remember liking it. I even have a piece I finished but never framed. It took me years. . . "The Shepherd" by Greg Olson I think was what I made. Go ahead, get a good laugh and call me grannie!
