Give Thanks

In the midst of life's stresses and sorrows, I can be thankful.

                                                      Verily I say unto you my friends,
                                                                     fear not, let your hearts be
                                                                    comforted;  yea, rejoice evermore
                                                                   and in everything give thanks.
                                                                                                 (D&C 98:1)
                                          
2015 has been a tough year for our family. My daughter is experiencing some unique hardships, along with experiencing a new chapter in her life, my Mother died quite suddenly, my Father-in-law died after a prolonged illness, my chronic skin condition has not improved one whit, I had to find a new job, and all kinds of other detritus that life throws at you has happened. I will be glad to forget this year and leave it behind. Along with the hardships I made myself think of some good things that have happened, too, to brighten things up a bit as well...

            I completed all the steps necessary to receive my teaching license.

            I went on two fun trips to California.

            I was able to spend a precious month with my daughter and granddaughter in Monterey, CA.

            My sister and I spent a month together in Sept.

            Hubby made a greenhouse and a chicken coop for the yard!

            I made some new friends.

            I was able to find a new job that I like very much.


Eloise, Tiny Wattly, Betty and Eggzilla came to live in our yard this summer.
Near Petaluma, CA.

Microbiology is awesome!
