"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

A HUGE scare.....


My dad was giving a talk this past Sunday at one of his ward conferences and he said the room started spinning, he was sweating profusely, and the whole left side of his body was in pain. He almost passed out. He had a mini-stroke.... I couldn't stop crying when I heard, wondering and worrying about him. He's had doctors appointments and check-ups every single day this week just to make sure everything is ok. They found a spot in his brain on the x-ray they took and didn't know if it was an air bubble or a blod clot. That means more and more tests....
My dad is a very strong man, and a very faithful man. When he should be at home resting and taking it easy, he's still going to his church meetings. We all tell him they will understand if he misses a meeting, and he comes back with "if I do the Lord's work, he will bless me and make me better" he is right.... his faith will heal him!
I love my daddy so much! I know he will be ok!
Please remember him in your prayers!!

I will keep your father in my prayers too. It is very scary when we have loved ones who experience those. Especially to our fathers, who are the "supermans" in our lives. I hope that all will be ok and he will get a clean bill of health.
I was in Utah and tried to call and text you to meet up with you but I didn't hear anything. Now I understand why. I still love ya!
You have been a very busy mom. A blessing, baptism and all sorts of other stuff. We live crazy lives don't we!
I love ya lots. I will be praying for you and your family this week.
