Really Family?

This morning I decided to have some cereal for a quick breakfast before heading out the door for work.  I knew we didn't have a lot of cereal left but I knew there were a few boxes. Pulling out the first box, this is what I found.......

What??  Really?? (shaking my head)

So I moved on to door cereal number two only to find this.....

BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!   Seriously family????

Finding this threw me back in time to when I was a kid and my dad would  find empty containers in cupboards or crumbs left behind by 5 ruthless kids who ate him out of house and home. But, it always made me laugh (which also made him mad!) to see his befuddlement, and his scowl, and then hear him utter in a low voice his now famous phrase....."Damn hogs!"  

Sorry Dad.  I totally get it now!

Reading Material....

This morning I came downstairs in the dark carrying with me things that I would need for the day. 

Cell phone. Check.
iPod. Check.
Primary Manual to work on my lesson for Sunday. Check.
Book I am currently reading. Check.  

Tim came down a little later, saw my Primary Manual and my book on the table and laughed. It wasn't until he pointed it out that I realized the irony..... :)

I have been called to teach Primary and will begin this Sunday. I've spent a long time away from Primary but I am actually looking forward to it. :) I am teaching the CTR 8 class - the kids that are 7 turning 8. I am hoping that I don't feel like my class is like an animal farm!  Hahahaha! :)

New Year Wishes...

Happy New Year!
Welcome 2013!

For me it is always exciting to start a new year. I like to think ahead to the things I want to work on and while I do set some goals, it's not earth shattering stuff.  It's just good stuff that I should do more of. Hopefully each year I do a little more and do it a little better. At least that is my desire.

A few thoughts I want to keep in mind for the coming year....

"Don't you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven.  But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come." 
~Jeffrey R. Holland~

"He cannot help us remember things we have not labored to learn."
~David A. Bednar~

"Every trial or experience you have passed through is necessary for your salvation." 
~Brigham Young~

And my favorite quote of all time:
"...but we traveled on trusting in God."
~from the pioneer journal of Susannah Stone~

I am anxious to travel on, trusting in God, to see what is up ahead and around the corner. :)
