Today, I decided to just write some thoughts that I have been having. First off, I'm tired, and I am feeling my age. There have been a whirlwind of activities and events to go to and to participate in. Here is what the last few weeks have been like. We enjoyed all of these extraordinary times, but now I do need some catch-up time and a nap.
I remember well his birth. He was born on a beautiful summer morning at the LDS hospital. The room that I had looked out over the valley and had a great view of the Salt Lake Temple. It was a peaceful, sweet birth for a first baby. We were overjoyed to have a boy. He has been a great son. As a child, he was happy and fun. We had our teenage problems, but in general, he was obedient, and we are pleased with the path he has taken. I was excited to celebrate this beautiful moment with him and his family.
We had a fantastic time with their family. The Lake was beautiful, and they had a spectacular moment on the boat, and in the water.
I am thrilled that her sister Jenni and family are here to be with her also. I love when my daughters have some moments together. I will have a total of 13 of us here for several days. It makes life a touch complicated. However, we all do well and have many fun times together.
Our grandson, Jackson was on his bike and hit by a distracted driver. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He hurt his shoulder and had some abrasions. The nurse in the Emergency room told me that he was a fortunate young man. His parents were out of town, so his siblings pulled together to help him.
Our daughters and families went up to see how he was doing and to take dinner to him the day after the accident. He also requested a Priesthood blessing while we were there. He is doing well for now. He may have to have surgery for torn muscles in his shoulder.
He also turned 23 years old and here are a few photos of his birthday party.Justserve.org. Site. I have been reading a lot about Ministering, and see how important it is in helping us have a Zion's heart, and build a Zion Society.
We had our weekly temple assignment on Saturday, and that is a highlight of the week. I find great peace in the temple and love the moments that I can assist with the work.
Meanwhile, I made a few visits to some sisters in our Stake. I love these visits, and the opportunity I have to get to know the sisters in the Stake better.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We had 3 of our families with us which made it extra special.
There was a lot of cousin bonding over the past couple of weeks. I have loved watching them together and enjoying each other.
As we left Idaho Falls to come home we went with our granddaughter, Taylor Jo to see the Barn where she takes Horseback riding lessons. She is learning how to jump the horse. This place boards quite a few horses and she knows them all by name and several of them she has ridden. She is kind of a horse whisperer. You can see the love she has for them, and they love her too. She is a marvelous young woman.
