The Magic of Childhood

"Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. it is to have a spirit yet streaming....It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul...."

- Francis Thompson

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

"Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? From Nazareth came example. From Nazareth came sight. From Nazareth came strength. From Nazareth came life. From Nazareth came faith. From Nazareth came peace. From Nazareth came courage. From Nazareth came Christ."

--Thomas S. Monson, "Can Any Good Come from Nazareth?", Tambuli, Apr. 1989,

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer.

-Albert Camus

Life is like a field of newly fallen snow...


Where I choose to walk every step will show.

Another year to celebrate life...yay!......

....and another 'new beginning' (I'm not getting older..I'm getting wiser, right?).........a time to remember all the blessings of being a part of a family that loves me...and having friends that feel like family to me. I love you all!!! Thank you for loving me and being such wonderful, inspirational examples to me. I couldn't make this journey without you - nor would I even want to.

Making a Wish....

An obviously staged photo of me poised above my Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie...Leslie couldn't get the actual photo of me making a wish while blowing out the candles...so this is a pretend wish...but it's still a wish.........all wishes count.
