No Coincidence

While I was wasting a few minutes facebook surfing,(sounds better than stalking) I came across a young girl in her early twenties who said it was interesting where life takes you. I found this statement not only a little frustrating, but also very annoying. I just read President Monson's talk (posted below if you want to know what he said,) about how our choices take us on a journey. He quoted the cheshire cat in "Alice in Wonderland" after Alice comes to a fork in the road and asks which path she should follow. "That depends where you want to go. If you do not know where you want to go, it doesn't matter which path you take." Pres. Monson then says, "Unlike Alice, we all know where we want to go, and it does matter which way we go, for by choosing our path, we choose our destination. Decisions are constantly before us. to make them wisely, courage is needed - the courage to say no, the courage to say yes. Decisions do determine our destiny."
I love that. It is so plain and simple. The paths will always be there, everyday. So I say to her (even though she will never read this) life doesn't take us anywhere. We end up where we choose to go. Which path will you choose.

But I can't blog right now. I am having too much fun sewing. I have four projects going right now.

Exciting News!

Mom and Dad are going on a mission! What a great surprise...we didn't even know they had put in papers. They have been called to serve a service mission in the Heber Camp for 18 months. I am so excited for them. They will love working with the young women. I think it is perfect for them. They go in April come home in October, and then go back in April and home again in October. It will be fun to see what their responsibilities will be. But one thing I know for sure, they will be great at whatever they do because they have testimonies to share and are obedient. What a great blessing this will be to our family!

To all my blogging friends...

Please post! I love to hear about your mundane day to day tasks. It makes me feel somewhat normal.

Good Things:
1. Hearing from you
2. New focus - even if it still the same...maybe it should be refocus, as in goals and resolutions
3. good advice - sometimes in the form of your blogs
