Wow it's been a long time. Not for lack or something to write but for lack of opportunity. May 2011 . . . a MONTH that will live on in infamy! It has been CRAZY! Truly I hope my grandma Nonie's superstition is correct, because if it is (things come in three's) then we ought to be done! So here I am with a lot to say, and hopefully I can get it all out. On top of the events, we've all been sick, some of us sick and pregnant, and it has been that way for over a month! Craziness, but really I get annoyed with myself listing all the things that are have been hard because I don't like feeling a pessimistic! And actually, things are hard for everyone. I am glad if lending a listening ear to the down trodden can help them, but for me, complaining often makes me feel worse. As Elder Holland said "No misfortune is so bad that whining about it can't make it worse." (From April 2007 General Conference)
I try, sometimes with no success, to follow the advice I sing to my littles "No one likes a frowny face, change it for a smile! Make the world a better place by smiling all the while!"
