Happy Anniversary!

40 years ago today - January 30, 1970 - my parents were married in the Logan Temple. 40 years is quite a feat by any measure, but especially these days when it seems that marriages come and go like the latest fad. I just want to say thanks for everything they have done for my family and me. They continue to sacrifice in so many ways for all of us.  Thanks for giving us all a great start in life. And  thanks for continuing to be there for all of us. We love you! Happy 40th Anniversary!

Global warming?????????

Going on 12 hours of fairly steady snow here. Where's the global warming I've been hearing about?????

Drip, drip, drop....

So... the weather has been a bit unsettled as of late... rain, snow, blow, sun... then all over again. Can't complain too much, though. We need the water and its been nice to be above freezing. Tomorrow is Friday - Hooray! I mean... umm..... DRAT! I wish there were more days... ummm... ya- that's what I meant. It just means another weekend to read and do homework for Tuesday's classes. Then there's regular school stuff... Ah, I don't think I can handle the fun and excitement....

Freezin' for a reason...

I just wanted to give a shout out to my brother and his co-workers, as well as all the other brave, giving, shivering people who participated in the 2010 Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics. I know that this year's plunge was overshadowed somewhat by the devastating events in Haiti, but it is a reminder that there are plenty of things we can do to help right here in our own country, state, and community. So... thanks bro! Thanks for reminding us all that we can do something to help someone else.

Back to the books...

Well, last night began another semester of Master's classes. Lot's of reading, writing... but no 'rithmatic. (I don't think... :-) ) The upside is that when this semester is over I will be halfway through the program. I have to admit that I am learning a lot, although I don't necessarily agree with some of the stuff they have us read. I guess that's the beauty of education - one is exposed to a variety of philosophies, but you can choose what you take from each one.

May your blessings be more numerous than your trials, and may your trials turn out to be blessings in disguise. Happy 2010!

Welcome to 2010. Here it is the first day of 2010 and the first day of a new "adventure" of sorts for me - blogging. I swore that I would never do it - my life is not the stuff of novels or movies - just me, myself, and I living life. Why anyone would want to read my ramblings - okay - "musings" - is beyond me - yet here I am doing it anyway. May this year be one of blessings big and small for all of us. And may we see the blessings that are all around us, both obvious and hidden.
