I WITNESSED SOMETHING WONDERFUL THIS WEEKEND...


SHE DID IT!




The strengthening of a friendship!





I WAS GRATEFUL for the love and support shown for Amanda... Carl and I have been blessed with such a special little family.

I AM SO HAPPY FOR AMANDA! So impressed by her DETERMINATION AND GUTS! So inspired by her FAITHFULNESS...

I WAS ASSURED this weekend of the brotherly love our son does indeed have for his big sister. :)

IT WAS TOUCHING to watch my husband... A proud Dad waiting to catch a glimpse of his daughter... He has such a talent for catching moments in time through his photographs. Sometimes I feel badly he is ALWAYS the one behind the camera.

I WAS REMINDED I still feel such an intense love and great concern, the desire to protect my daughter from suffering and pain... Even though she is a big girl now!

My heart is filled with pride... I have a renewed respect and admiration for Amanda!

My Heart is FULL!!



I have been especially blessed...

Those in my life were in tune enough to take action when I might not have.

The very kind and caring medical personnel at Jordan Valley Hospital were so good to me.

With an attentive, loving and caring husband.

I have 2 of the greatest sisters in the world... truly.

I always felt my brothers sincere love and care over the many miles that separate us.

LOVED the company of those who make me laugh the most.

To have much needed visits from my nephews and niece's who shared their love and sweet smiles with me.

I was given the gift of a priesthood blessing.

With HUGS... oh the hugs... they have taken on a whole different meaning and appreciation for me.

By those willing to give of their time, just to sit with me, to watch and wait with me... to read to me. :)

With friends and family who have sent angels of healing, happiness and sunshine, prayers, well wishes and love my way.

So grateful for the love of my 2 precious granddaughters, and already in love with one more we have on the way.

With the miracle of modern medicine and the skilled hands that cared for me.

By those who were generous enough to bring meals for my family into my home... some of the yummiest meals I've had in a VERY long time.

With just more reminders of how I have been blessed with 3 of the most wonderful kids.

With the dearest little CTR Class who made pictures and get well cards for me.

With gifts of such beautiful fresh flowers to lift my spirits.

The sunshine on my face as I struggled to walk that first mile.

So happy to be back to work... sharing my days with the sweet children I care for.

EVERYONE keeps asking me... "do you feel any different?" I do... I've been given a second chance... a "do over" I guess. (I hope to do better this time!)

I feel so loved, more aware, appreciative, served, a little bit like damaged goods, cared for, happy and some what awakened... "I feel my saviors love"


Thank you all!
MY HEART IS FULL!!
