good things...

it has been awhile since i have posted on the blog but i thought that i might share a thought with you...well...not so much thought as a talk. all 3 of my kids are asleep right now...which NEVER happens...so i decided to do some ironing...yes, ironing. as i was in my quietness i turned on a talk by Elder Holland. it is called "An High Priest of Good Things to Come". i am sure you have all heard it and love it. i ended up listening to it twice because of how close it hit home with me. and i wanted to share it with my wonderful family. having been feeling a little bit of an emotional roller coaster lately and dwelling on my own little troubles i found peace in the voice of Elder Holland. i believe he speaks to all of us in this talk no matter our age or circumstance. i urge you to LISTEN to it. take a quiet morning or a quiet moment and listen to it. it truly is nourishing. i love you.

Thank you for this reference, Joni. This is such a good use of what and why we're doing this: staying connected, offering ideas, supplying help and strength throw simple means and ways. You're a super star! PS: that message from Jesse w/ Will and Mary... ?! Seriously. Can't get over it. And Jen, talking w/ Lucy last wk sent me into the stratosphere. I love your cubs. Love them to death.

Jones! Thank you so much for your boost to my soul! I am so thrilled that you can teach me through your sweet notes. I have been listening to conference too, and now I want to go back and re-listen to the address you mentioned. I loved it the first time and was so happy to get the conference CDs so I can listen again. Thanks for the tip of encouragement to hear it again. Love you! Mom
