Our Families Favorite Quote

As a being of power, intelligence, and the master of his own thoughts, a man holds the key to every situation, to make his life what he chooses it to be. When he discovers the divine power within his soul, he can lead his life to a God-like nature. If one dreams lofly dreams, so shall he become. There is magic in the way one thinks. If we expect the worst, we will get the worst. If we expect the best, we will recieve the best. If we train our minds to have faith in God and ourselves, we are using one of the great laws of life. If we think and live righteously, happiness will find its place in our lives. It is amazing when we expect the best how forces are set in motion which cause the best to materialize. Our thoughts, more than circumstances determine the coarse of our lives. Outward circumstances do not determine the coarse of our lives as much as the thoughts that habitually occupy our minds. These thoughts carve their impression on our faces, in our hearts, and on the tablet of our eternal souls.

Trying to stay strong......

So in one week, Our dishwasher was recalled for a part starting fires in many homes....I feel blessed that it never did start on fire for us!!! Our fridge/freezer just stopped cooling and freezing, our toilet upstairs broke, a part in our sprinkler system broke, the fuel pump went out in our van right as we were trying to leave to go to Colorado because Justin's brother's baby boy died. None of my worries can be so bad.....we had a memorable experience going to the Funeral for baby Beckett, it was very hard to see Jed and Ashley have to go through something so incredible hard. I really am grateful for the knowledge I have of the plan of salvation to know that they will get to see there son again, I can't even begin to imagine not being apart of this beautiful gospel. We had a nice time with family. On our way home it ended up taking awhile...we got stuck in traffic because of an accident and then my father inlaw got a hole in his tire! We made it home at 1130pm last night after picking up Tyler he stayed with my mom and dad and Holly and Brad...Thanks you guys for watching him, especially Brad and Holly because Tyler ended up having the 24 hour throw up flew for you guys!! Justin was late for work but they were okay with it thank goodness. Soooooooo today is Monday a new week!!!!! I would like to have a better one! The fridge guy came and checked out our frigde, it is really broken ... I felt so dumb because the guy checked it out and then looked at me and said:"this is not good" I then said oh well things just have'nt been good for us just tell me how much and he said well around $700! I was not to happy, he then said well let me just check something and then he called this lady and she said that she would call us back....so we waited and then she called and he got off the phone and said this is your lucky day lady it is still under warranty! I started to get choked up and tears ran down my face I felt so stupid! I just feel like lately I have been on my last straw but yet today I feel so blessed, the fridge guy left and I just knelt down cried and prayed to my father in heaven and thanked him for just this little but big thing for me in my life. Tyler was up all night but is now doing better and is his cheery self.
