Today we remember and thank all soldiers

Today is Mememorial Day. Please join me in saying a small prayer for all of our soldiers, whether you agree with the war we fight or not, our soldiers deserve all the support they can get. I have a favorite quote it is from Robert Schuller Sr. He says it durring his broadcasts every week. I beleive it goes "May the Lord bless you and keep you in your comings in and your goings out." It just hits something with me. My brother, husband and I all served in the Army and we were all stationed at Fort Campbell, KY durring the Septemeber 11th, 2001 attacks. I sent my husband and brother to both Afghanistan and Iraq, it never gets easier being alone worrying for your soldier, so I ask as a friend, if you know someone whose soldier is gone right now, please invite them over for dinner or something help take their minds off of everything for a while. God Bless everyone. Blessings to my friends who served, and are still serving, LT. Spencer Beaty, SPC Michelle Thomas, SGT Marshal Thomas, SPC Andrew Hood, SPC Zorran Kolic, SPC Kyle Begay, SFC Johnson, 1SG Johnson, SPC Davida (?), SPC Ana Gonzalez, SPC Tonya (?) and my other friends and famliy from Fort Campbell, and Fort Jackson.

I am an Auntie again!

Zorran's sister Donna had a beautiful little girl this week. She is named for her Uncle Zorro. Zoryana was born with her stomach attached to her throat, or in her throat. She has already gone thru two surgeries. She is doing well, and the problems weren't as bad as they were thought to be, thankfully! Here is a picture of the little munchkin. Unfortunately we are in Wyoming and they are in New York so I don't get to spoil her and hug her and love her. But I already told Uncle Zorro that I am going to have to go buy some yarn and make this little sweetie a blankie! I will be back a again soon, this time with pictures of some cards hopefully.

I have a great family

Yesterday was my birthday. My sweet husband set his alarm clock and got up at midnight to call me at work to tell me happy birthday. What a sweetie! My mom told me what she was getting me but hadn't ordered yet, (a really cute quilt, and sham set for my bed) and then when she came home last night she had a beautiful peace rose bush for me and a hydrangea plant. I love peace roses and hydrangea's so this made my day! My hubby is giving me money to use to buy a laptop as my computer is almost 5 years old now and very outdated. I have such a wonderful family.

I went to the Utah Valley Womens Expo

My mom and I went to the expo yesterday mainly to go to the Close to My Heart warehouse sale. That was crazy, but not as crazy as it was on Friday apparently. I found a lot of stuff, and bought mostly for friends, but now I find I have buyers remorse. Oh well, I will just offer the stuff I got to my fellow consultants and see if anyone wants what I don't.

I found a really awesome headband that I love at one of the booths, (I knew they were going to b there and went looking for them.) The headband is made by Pink Bench you put them on your head, tie them on, and they stay, they don't have elastic, and they are made of cloth so there is no pressure, and they don't hurt! Love 'em!
