Powerful message from Julie B Beck given a the 2010 BYU Women's Conference. I was there when she gave this address. It was on BYU TV today and I was reminded of how much I love Sister Beck and this message.
One day back to school and then 3 days off for a trip to Tampa as Katherine participated in All State Vocal in the High School Girls Honors Choir. I am always overwhelmed at the energy and talent at these events. It is humbling to have one of my children have the blessing of participating is something like this.

All the hard work comes together
The All State Concert Band joined them conducted by the
Florida State band assistant conductor.
The ride home called for a warm dinner.
Trying to beat the almost impossible game...
Taking my turn...
I am so grateful for this experience Katherine had. She worked very hard to get there and was with the best of the best all weekend.
I am not sure if anyone is even reading this blog anymore.
Let me know if you are.
This morning, I was looking out my kitchen window and realized how blessed I was to see beautiful flowers and greenery. Many people in the world are shoveling out from heavy snows or staying inside to avoid the extreme cold temperatures. I am truly grateful to live in Florida and to not experience the extreme snow, ice, and arctic temperatures. I prefer to endure occasional hurricane threats, and sticky humid weather. Rarely do our temperatures go over 90 degrees even in the worst heat of summer and in 34 years,
I still only need my two hands to count how many times we have been truly threatened by a hurricane.
Enjoy the little tour around the blossoms in my yard.
