Winter Pleasures

Today was the best December first that I ever did have. Picture this: falling snow on a beautiful
winter day; a beautiful Christmas tree all lit up in the corner of the living room; a digital fireplace
crackling on the television; Christmas music painting the air with Christmas nostalgia; a
"coco-motion" brewing creamy hazelnut hot chocolate, pumpkin waffles, and a fantastic group of
dear friends. Does winter get any better than this? I attest that it cannot.

Just to continue the December dream day we went out with a group of friends and experienced
what we like to call "Snow-boating." It is when you tie a rope to the back of a car and sit on a sled
and go for a joy ride in snow filled parking lots. It was a blast. These are the moments life is made
of. I love simple pleasure Saturdays.

Things are getting a little "Elfy" around here!

Check this out. I made it of my dearest friend Vicki and myself. Warning: The following material may not be suitable for flattery.

That doesn't mean it's not the truth

So, I went to see Ratatouille last night. Cute show. I recommend it. I love finding truth in any given situation in life, and the movie has a one-liner that I just loved. It was my favorite. It said, "I know this sounds insane, but, well, the truth sounds insane sometimes, but that doesn't mean it's not...the truth." (Linguini) I began reflecting on that. It really is true that the truth sounds insane sometimes. For example, to many people the account of Joseph Smith sounds insane. Joseph was chosen to be the prophet of the restoration and was visited by God the Father and Jesus Christ as they restored Christ's true church to the earth. However, regardless of sounding insane, that does not change it from being true. For more info. see: Of this experience, president Gordon B. Hinckley said, "I’ve recently been in Palmyra, New York. Of the events which occurred in that area, one is led to say: 'They either happened or they did not. There can be no gray area, no middle ground.' And then the voice of faith whispers: “It all happened. It happened just as he said it happened.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “Testimony,” Ensign, May 1998, 69). The truth does sound insane sometimes, but that does not change it from being the truth!

The wide world of blogging

I'm sitting next to my long-time friend, Don. I'm madly in love with him, and he doesn't know it. (That last message brought to you by Don's wildest dreams).

Anyway, Don has inspired me to delve into this mysterious world of blogging. So, here I go. My first attempt.

Moral of the story is that you can all blame Don for getting me started on the Wide World of Blogging!!! :) ---- And yes, he is the one on the left!

Wish me luck! (on blogging, not Don)
