It is not happy people...

It is Not Happy People…

Happy Friday everyone!  I thought that today I would just share a thought that I have posted before, but it is a great one to think about- It is Not Happy People…It is not happy people...

I love the autumn time and the beautiful colors.  This picture was taken in front of my house and I love these beautiful trees that line our neighborhood.  And so it is with a grateful heart, that I decided on this thought for the week!  We need to all remember…It is Not Happy People…  We all need to work on being a little more thankful in all things, including me!  I am grateful for the many blessings that my family and I have… and even though they are hard…I am thankful for the trials too, because they make us all stronger.  I am even thankful for these beautiful trees…that is until I have to start raking all those leaves!  :)

I hope that you are all having a great day and that you have some wonderful plans for the weekend!  We have a baptism for one of our cute granddaughters, so that will be fun!  I hope that all of you get to do something that you love with someone that you love!

Thanks for Visiting!


August 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

Can you believe that it is almost August already??  Where did the summer go? Well…I guess that it is time for the August 2015 visiting teaching handout, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

This month the message is:  Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ-Meek and Humble.  You can see the entire message by clicking on the title.  

I decided to use a quote and a scripture this time.  The scripture is from Luke 22:42 and the quote is from Elder Ulisses Soares.Aug-2015-VT-000-Page-1 Continue reading


Gardening is Just Another Day at the Plant

Today I have a  fun little thought that would be a great gift for all you gardeners out there!  I saw this saying and it just made me laugh out loud!  :)

 This would be a fun gift for your favorite gardener, or the person that is a wanna be gardener!

This would be great to do as a photo block like I did here.  Or you could simply put this in a frame and put it out on your patio table!  This is formatted to an 8 x 10 size.  If you want to do a photo block remember to develop it with a matte finish, not glossy!  If you want the JPEG format or photo format, right click over the image and go to “save image as” then save in a folder.  You can print your own or send it out to your favorite photo processing center.  For those of you that would like the PDF download, just click on the link:

Memorial Day Thought

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

Memorial Day Thought

I would like to thank all those men and women..and their families… that have served our country  in all of our behalf!   Some have given the ultimate sacrifice so that all of us can enjoy our freedom!  Freedom is not free, but I am so grateful for all of those brave service men and women who have willingly protected our freedom.

I am thrilled to see that our country is finally recognizing all those Vets that have served in the earlier wars with the “Honor Flights” and to truly give them the honor that they have so rightfully earned!

Thank you to all Veterans that have so willingly served.  You are our true HERO’S!

Hope you all have a great weekend and that you can remember and honor all those “Hero’s in your life! 

Thanks for Visiting!

Thursday’s Thought- I’m So Glad…

Since today is Thursday…it’s time once again to do a Thursday’s Thought!

I live in Utah, and our Autumn has been absolutely beautiful this year!  When we go walking in the morning, there is a crisp bite to the air, but by the time we get done the sun is starting to warm up the day!  I can still go outside to play with the kids and enjoy the beautiful world that we live in.  I have a lot of trees in my yard and the colors have been amazing…and I really don’t even mind raking and mulching the leave when the weather is so gorgeous.

So that is what prompted my thought for today.Octobers-quote-000-Page-1

Here is the download:  Octobers

Have you had a beautiful October where you live? 

I hope that you will take a minute today to just enjoy the fact that we have Octobers in our lives!  It is a beautiful season…whether we are talking about the month or the season in our life!  Enjoy every moment!

Thanks for Visiting today and have a Happy October Day!

I would rather sit on a pumpkin

Thursday’s Thought-I Would Rather Sit On A Pumpkin,

 I can’t believe it…fall is right around the corner.  My big maple tree is just starting to turn red,  the kids are back in school, Swiss Days is coming this weekend, (yeah!) it is canning season and the air is finally starting to cool down a bit!  So I guess that it time to start with some fall projects and fall thoughts!  :)  

This thought just makes me smile because I think that I would probably like to sit on a pumpkin alone, too!

I would rather sit on a pumpkinI think that I am going to print and frame this and put it in my kitchen, just because it makes me smile to think about sitting on my own pumpkin!

Even though there are still  a few days left in August…Happy Fall Y’all!  :)

Thanks for visiting today, I appreciate your support!

In every walk in Nature

Thursday’s Thought-In Every Walk In Nature…

I thought that it would be fun to use one of my pictures from The Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, to make my thought for today!  There were several quotes that I have, but I loved this one about walking in nature!In every walk in NatureI know that I am weird in my love for flowers…so you may have to deal with a few more flower pictures in future posts!  :)  Is there a flowers-anonymous  club that I should join???

Hope you have a great Thursday!

Thanks for Visiting Today!


Thursday’s Thought-Life Isn’t About Finding Yourself.

Well, another week is almost over and Thursday is already here…so that means that it is time to do my Thursday’s Thought!


Click here for the download: Life isn’t about finding yourself

I love this thought, because we really do create our own selves.  Everything that we do, or don’t do…defines who we are and that is exciting that we can control our own destiny!  Many different things and circumstances make up our lives and how we live and react to those things make up who become!  

So Dream BIG & Live BIG!

Happy Thursday Everyone and Thanks for Visiting!

A good ffather

Thursday’s Thought-A Good Father is…

Today for my Thursday’s thought, I decided that I had better do one more Father’s Day quotes.  I think that this one is so true.  Good dad’s are sometimes hard to come by.  I am so grateful for my own father and the great example that he is to my family and I.  We all just love him to death!  I am also grateful for my husband’s father.  He too, is well loved by all of us!A good ffather

This would be fun printed and framed for the father in your life!  To  print just click on this link:  Father’s Day

I am also so grateful for my husband who was always there for my children as they were growing up…and is still there for them all the time.  They still value his opinion on things from raising the kids to finances to sports questions and everything in between!  It is so great that they feel like they can call him anytime and he will take the time to talk to them!

If you have a great father in your life, be sure to tell him how much you love and appreciate all that he has done for you!

Happy Father’s Day to all those great dads out there!
