We start them young at our church.
Once a year the 3-11 year olds all over the world, basically take over our Sacrament meeting.
We call it the Primary Program.
The little tiny ones, like our grandson Grant in the video below, get to recite a part. As they grow a
little older they are encourage to share more of their own thoughts and feelings.
So here is Grant practicing for his part. He melts my Grandma Honey heart.

because I don't remember Mom blowing one of those at home.
Even when she tried to smile, it didn't quite work for her.

I would rush to my locker, throw my books in,
Last Friday, as he had done for years and years, Rex took Vonda to get her hair done.
Sunday he had a stroke.
Tuesday, he kept trying to get out of bed saying he needed to make toast for Vonda.
He made breakfast every morning for her and put it in the fridge so she would have it when she woke
up. His daughter, Gina assured him, she would make her Mom's toast.
Rex slipped into a coma later that day and passed into the next life (yesterday) 3 days later.
We were with them the night before he died. As Den and I walked into their home I had forgotten
about the angels....but I felt them immediately. I knew they were there.
We probably stayed too long that evening but I didn't want to go. I could feel the peace and love in
that room. Rex's body was still and quiet, but his spirit was strong.
I could feel heaven and earth coming together. I wanted to stay.
Rex Morrison was one of the hardest working men I'd ever known.
Even at 91, and on hospice, he continued to take care of his yard....
and make his wife's breakfast every morning.
Even with his heart working at 10%, and then the stroke,
Rex still felt determined to get up and make Vonda's toast.
Funeral service Wednesday, 1 pm. Fresno Stake Building.

“….Someday we may find out about the millions of times
we’ve been protected and watched over that we’re not
even conscious of. In my prayers I try to acknowledge
the Lord and the guidance and blessings I receive, and
even the countless ways I don’t recognize or realize
Oct. 5, 2009 by Elder Richard C Scott who passed away on Tuesday.
I received a text earlier this week with the link to listen to a "conversation" with Elder Scott
and his daughter Linda (the quote above was taken from that). My phone was acting a
little crazy at the time so I didn't even know who sent the link. But I turned it on
anyway, and it was so worth it!
I then discovered the Mormon Channel has 56 such "conversations" (informal interviews) to
listen to. To me, this has been like finding a hidden treasure. Since these are audio, rather
than video, I can get things done while listening. These recordings are by people in our
church who have "a unique perspective, or an interesting story."
PS Thanks to my sister Robin....turns out she was the unknown link sender. :)

Why is it the parents can be gone a couple hours and the twins will
run into their arms...but....
they leave for 4 days, and they act like they barely know them?
The map below is for my Dad.

Our grand twins have moved in for 4 days while their parents went hiking
somewhere out there that is not on fire. I hope.
Jonas and Tea think since they are the youngest in the family, they will marry last.
Like marriage is all about the birth order.
It's hard figuring out life when you're six...or what do do with their hands while talking!
Do we not make videos of our children and grandchildren so they can look back on them someday?
Well, it's already happening!
The twins have continually requested this one since yesterday...
To them, it's ancient. To me, it feels like last week.
Téa's always been in charge, even back then.

I'd use about any excuse to be with her.
and higher tech. And NOT just for the money I would save.
arches are too high. He suggested I find a podiatrist outside of Kaiser to make special orthotics for my
shoes. (Kaiser doesn't offer orthotics.)
Why did I suffer all those years with aching feet?

clean it after. Trust me on this. I ended up having to throw my pan away the first time I made this.
Once you see her pictures you will have to make it.
