The Shoulders I Stand On

Today, July 24, 1847, aka Pioneer Day,
I reverence and remember the early Mormon Pioneers**
Because of their Faith and Courage,
my life is blessed beyond description
and the entire world is a better place.
"Whether you are among the posterity of
the Pioneers or whether you were baptized
only yesterday each is the beneficiary
of their great undertaking"
President Gordon B Hinkley
(I miss him)
From the message, True To The Faith

**I am in awe of the Modern Day Pioneers, also.
Many of my dear friends, including my Husband,
 are Latter day Pioneers who have taught me
precious lessons in life.

My appreciation for the pioneers grows as I get older, as does my admiration for modern day pioneers.
