first snow






yesterday we woke up to our first snow.

(435-453)
  • hot mint chocolate
  • buttered toast
  • heated home
  • fleece jacket
  • afternoon walk with snow, blue sky, and Becky
  • waterproof shoes
  • spending a few minutes with sweetie watching the game
  • talking to sisters
  • phone call from Laurel
  • happy children
  • faces i love at church Halloween party
  • taking a tight corner
  • another amazing marble





“Ask yourself these questions: Am I an example of respect in my home by the way I treat those I love the most? What is my demeanor during a sports event? If my child has a disagreement with a teacher, coach, or peer, do I listen to both sides of the issue? Do I show respect for the property of others as well as take care of my own? How do I respond to others with whom I disagree in matters of religion, lifestyle, or politics? “As parents and leaders exemplify and teach respect for others, we confirm in the hearts of our children that each of us is truly a child of God and all are brothers and sisters through eternity. We will focus on the things we have in common—on the qualities of heart that bind the family of God together, rather than on our differences.”Margaret S. Lifferth
