Thouights of a restless mind!

As if just celebrating a birthday doesn't make me old enough...K just got asked to the prom, and she is actually old enough to go. Where does the time go? Didn't I just go to my first prom? The Dad of the boy did say I could save him a lot of grief if I didn't let her go. Not such a bad idea.

Yesterday was a great Easter. Warm weather, friends, and family, and good talks. I am sure many of you heard the same story I did yesterday of the little boy with Down's syndrome who was supposed to fill his egg with something that reminded him of Easter. He left his egg empty, signifying an empty tomb. I am so thankful for an empty tomb. And the chance I have to see a little boy who taught me so much again. What a great blessing. Also today at church, I chatted with a friend who told me the secret of life. We don't have to carry all of the burden. It doesn't do us any good to stress and fret over something we can't change. We just have to do our best, and give the rest to God. He will help us if we ask! (Did everyone else already know that?) I guess sometimes things just make a little more sense at times.

D has been busy getting ready for the pinewood derby. He enlisted the help of his fishing buddy to shape the wood block, and he has been sanding, sanding, sanding. Fortunately D has more of my competitiveness than G's. He and I are just hoping for wheels that don't wobble this year.

Good things:
1. Beautiful daughters (I think)
2. Blessings of the atonement and resurrection
3. Friends willing to share their wisdom

I'm so glad that you you consider your beautiful girls a blessing...some might consider their beauty a curse!? The marvelous thing about your beautiful girls is that their beauty goes right to the core!

We came to visit Grandma today...J was wanting to play with D...someday soon?
