"I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." 
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters To A Young Poet

For friends. Long conversations on the phone with them. Notes left on my doorsteps. Kind text messages. Understanding.

For my husband. He is my hero.

For my children who day in and day out teach me important lessons about the kind of person I want to be.

For family. The cards, notes and just thinking of us, Thank you!

For God. Dios es Grande!

For church. To be more specific, our current ward. It's an amazing place. We love it. We love the people. We love to be there. We feel privileged to be able to serve.

For Oregon. We LOVE it here!

For patience and simplicity. Those things allow me to spend more time partying with these little hoodlums that I love!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Life with boys.

I go upstairs and I find this.
 I glared at them. It was messy!
I then took a picture, it was too cute to pass up :)

Words.Our country.Our Faith.

"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be great drought, disaster, and hardship, but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that the Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won't fail. I have faith in America ; you and I must have faith in America , if we understand the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are living in a day when we must pay heed to these challenges. 

I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials or crises it may yet have to pass through."
-Harold B. Lee
