Instead of being embarrassed of how much was jammed in my purse, I'm going to be proud that as a wife of an engineer I could fit this much in my purse.
I can honestly say my purse isn't so full after this tally. Here it goes
Wallet including ID, cards of all sorts, no money though-
Visiting teaching list
3 pressed powders
2 chap stick type tubes
3 types of over the counter meds
2 prescription meds
8 sticks of gum
1 small notebook
3 sets of headphones
$1.93 in change
Coupons for Roberts crafts
3 tiny chocolates
2 little lotions
1 airborne drink powder
1 cold ease

I wonder where she will be on her next birthday. I wonder how I will do without her. I wonder how she will grow and change as she serves and becomes a woman of God.

BUT! it is true I have my thing with pillows. Bed pillows. I mostly want feather pillows, though foam filled ones have a place in my life as well. We have a lot of pillows. Sometimes when Dave is out of town, I comfort myself by getting a new pillow or two. I have yet to get any square euro style pillows. Hmmmm Dave is going to Canada soon......

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gate...s in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn.I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children.I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." -Marjorie Hinckley-

•"I’m selfish, impatient, and more than a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m sometimes out of control, and at times hard to figure out. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best"
Marilyn Monroe, but edited to fit me better
and a newer one I do love
Sisters, we love you. We pray for you. Be strong and of good courage. You are truly royal spirit daughters of Almighty God. You are princesses, destined to become queens. Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your “once upon a time” is now.
