~ Brian. We celebrated Brian’s birthday this week. Thirty-two years ago at the hospital where he was born, he was one of the first babies born with the father present and without any medications. The nurses were a bit on edge and out of sorts and whisked Brian away right after birth. I remember the first time I held him three hours later. Just me and this teeny tiny baby all alone in my room. I stared at him and he at me. I had never felt love like that before.
~ Paula. My dear friend who gives 110% at everything she does. We celebrated our little city’s first birthday this week. (Same day as Brian’s!!) Paula organized a wonderful “party” with an incredible fireworks display and it didn’t cost the city a penny. Hooray Paula!!
~ Aaron Lopez. He is our Gospel Doctrine teacher at church and always gives the perfect lesson. I wonder how he knows exactly what I need?
~ America. I’m so thankful for the blessing of living in America. Our country is not perfect but I believe it to be the most compassionate and giving country on the planet.
~ Hope. I for the best in all things. I hope my son will find work. I hope NY’s vision will improve. I hope my body will loose the stress!!
~ Faith. I have faith in my “hope” that all will be well.
It’s been an interesting week which I don’t think I used very wisely.
to know that next week is another opportunity to achieve greatness.

that NY’s vision has greatly improved since his surgery.
