Beautiful Thought

When everything seems to go wrong, just push.
When the job gets you down, just push.
When people don't react the way you think they should, push!
When your money looks funny and the bills are due, just push.
When you want to tell them off for whatever the reason, just push.
When you ask the question, when is my ship coming in? Just push.
When people just don't understand you, just push.
Let me tell you what Push stands for ....

Soldier Hallow -- YSA Activity

On February 20th we met as a Region and headed to Soldier Hallow in Midway to go TUBING!

We had so much fun! What a rush to sled down the mountain in the dark.
Everyone was having a great time. We could hear girls screaming/laughing.
The guys we WAHOOing! It was awesome!

Members of the Region brought amazing soups and sandwiches for us to fill our belly's and to warm up. The lodge was nice and warm with a rip-roaring fire going in the fire place.
We had so much fun with friends and getting to meet new people! This is an amazing program the church has come up with. Sure which we could get more YSA's to join us, the more the merrier!
If you know any Young Single Adults between the ages of 18 and 30 who'd like to join us, send them to my blog, have them leave me a message and I'll get in touch with them! This is the best calling for Scott and me to have. We love associating with these YSA's....they truly keep us young. :)

Just GOTTA brag!!!

Scott received an amazing award from work this week!! He was nominated by his colleagues several times as "EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH". Out of all the 1,000's of people who work at the new hospital in Murray...Scott was awarded

He had no idea he had even been nominated.....and he was totally surprised. The Dr.'s and nurses he works with just love him....and I can you NOT love this man! He is very private and has a cute shy side, but he is also very fun and friendly to be around. I honestly do not know anyone who doesn't like Scott. Way to go Scott...keep up the great job at work!!! XOXOXO I am very proud of you!

Happiest Place On Earth?

When you are with the one that you LOVE!

Scott and I gave each other tickets to Disneyland for Christmas. And then we waited and waited for February 4th to come so we could fly out! We fly to Long Beach (hole in the wall) Airport, got our car rental and drove to our Hotel by Disneyland.

It was around 80 degrees that day! And...we were over dressed. But the day was perfect! We didn't have to wait for any rides, we were able to walk on almost every ride! Later in the day we decided to ride Spash Mountain! So glad we waited...we got DRENCHED. We had to call our hotel and have to shuttle come pick us up, our clothes were soaked and we were cold. The next day was nice until the afternoon, then it started to rain. Scott had been watching the weather for California, so we took our rain coats with us. And very glad we did. It was a down pour. But, that didn't stop us! The majority of the rides are inside so we would run from ride to ride. Again we didn't have to wait for the rides.
This is the first time in 26 years (other than our Honeymoon) that we have taken a vacation away together without anyone coming with us. It was a wonderful time! Isn't this what it's all about? Spending time with the one you love and love being with that person? After 26 years of being together...I am still madly in love with my sweetie!

What an Awesome Surprise

My baby brother, and sister-in-law invited all of us to church to witness the blessing of their new baby son. It was a special occasion for my side of the family. All of us were together except for 1 of my 4 brothers and his family who live out of state. We all met at my parents ward. My dad is a member of the bishopric so he was standing at the door greeting the members. As we came up to greet them, my dad grabbed me and said, come with me, there is someone I'd like to introduce you to. So we walk over to a pew where a lady was sittin. Dad says Lonna, I'd like you to meet Lonna. We both looked at each other and smiled. Then I asked her, how do you spell your name? She said LONNA. Hummmm....first time in my whole life that I met another Lonna, spelled the same way. Afterr that I go sit with my family and enjoy the meeting. At the end of the meeting, I am snuggling with my newest nephew and Lonna comes up to me and hands me a grocery sack and says this is for name sake. I really don't look at it close because I am holding the baby. But when I get in the car, I open the sack and it is a hand-made crochet afghan. I was shocked!! I get to mom and dad's and show them what she gave me. Mom told me that she gives away one afghan a month to someone! I felt so special that day!

Isn't it beautiful! I will cherish it forever!
I was taught by my sweet grandma how to crochet when I was a young girl and I know how much time it takes to make these kinds of afghan's. THANK YOU LONNA!
