The General Relief Society Meeting was great.  I loved being there with my daughters.  I loved the words spoken and music shared.  It was great.

I am thankful I have made covenants with my Heavenly Father.  I am thankful for the blessing I receive because of the covenants I've made.  I'm thankful that I can teach my daughters and sons about covenants and their duty as children of God to make and keep covenants. 
I know that I'm not perfect.  I know that I am a sinner.   I fail...a lot.  I even fail at the same things over and over.  You would think I would learn the first time.  But no, it takes me a few times (or more) to get it.  I'm still a covenant maker and keeper.  Even when I fall and fail and makes mistakes I still can keep my covenants.  This is because I accept Jesus Christ as my Savior and Redeemer.  I use the Atonement in my life. I repent often.  I acknowledge God's will and hand in my life.  I endure and never give up.  Sometimes I may want to give up.  Sometimes my hope fades a little.  Those are the times when I try a little harder to be a little better.  I know what I need to do to improve.  And as much as I don't want to do some of those things; I know there are great blessings waiting for me when I do.  I know it, so I must do it!

I've been busy?!?!

Last post was August.  Guess you can say I'm definitely not a blogger any more.  But I will attempt to post a little more frequently.  For the sake of journaling....and my mother. 
All is well with our little tribe in the Pacific Northwest.  Loving the rain, just started my vegetable garden seeds and hiring a young man to clear up my garden of weeds and grass.  Kids are doing well.  We all had a bit of vomit yucky sickness last week.  But we are all back to our lovely, grouchy, kind and mean, moody selves again. 
Pretty much the same ol' same ol'.
