Today my brother called in dis-stress.
He needed to complete a punch list by
 tomorrow for an inspection on his house.
 My mom and I went up to help. Upon arriving
 we could see how little we were getting done.
 My mom walked next door and talked to the
 neighbor (who happened to be the bishop)
w/ in 20 minutes 10 or more men (& young men)
 were there to help. I told my brother
 "It's a modern day miracle!!"
So grateful for kind people who do good even
 when there is no physical or monitory reward!
 Great reminder of the importance of service is!! Gushhhh!

*It snowed on Weds. Lots of fluffy wet snow.
*This weekend has been ideal weather.
*Looking for a job is more of a job then most jobs!
*I hate exercising!!

The birthday boy w/ a super soaker.
I regret not taking pictures but I was busy face painting.
Linc eating everything in site,
Love that little boys tiny smile.
Loved Fodie pulling the tissue paper out
of each gift bag w/ such a flourish. Pulling it out
straight back and over his shoulder letting it flutter to the ground
then shouting. Oh yank you!!

totally adds up!!

I always resented CPR and first aid training.
It takes so long and it is so darn yearly!!
Today I was in the store and needed to help
a mom w/ a blue and limp 9 month old. It was so frightening!!
I was able to do and remember all that I needed
to do and pass the tiny off to EMT's.
Everyone please take a class!! You can take a class online
and you can do it for family night. In courage it in your
wards for adults and youth. I just felt so blessed w/
knowledge today! Empower yourselves!!

Sometimes it's the little things....

The little free things in life!!
Thanks Pier One. Your trash is my treasure!!
Happy Spring!!

While shopping w/ my darling nephew "E", this happened.
"E" talks to and shouts "hello" to anyone in sight!"
 A kind grandma stopped to talk to little "E". 
She noticed all the toys in our cart, that were
 there to play w/ and not purchase. "My"
 she stated "Looks like your mommy sure loves you!"
 "E's" tiny two year olds face scrunched and he said
"No not mama! Auntie!!" "Oh" the woman stated
and quietly moved on. I love that tiny "E"
 he sure has lots to say and you can just see his tiny mind work full blast!! 
"E" also noticed a four wheeler in the back of a truck
and knew at that very moment me needed to
have it and ride it. Stating very loudly "That is Eli's four wheeler!
Eli ride it!!"
We also saw a large sign showing yummy chocolate cookies!
Eli then went into a long conversation about
how Daddy loved doughnuts and always eats them.
I asked Eli if daddy gave Eli bites he Eli said "No just daddies!"
I love Eli!! His vocabulary is catching up w/ his mind
and makes me laugh!

The other day I found myself here. I am not one for retail so
much and I hardly have time to find parking and walk forever.
However sometimes things like that happen.
Urban Outfitters was full of expensive eye candy!
I partook! They have very nice staff too!
I could sleep for a week!!
Happy Day!
