Happy to live each day!!

This is my mantra for TODAY....

"This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think it is my new mantra for the rest of my life. Very good stuff here:) 

Soooooo very many reasons why my life is blessed! Here are some photos from the past few weeks....

Jackson's High School Play. He is on the far right in the hat:)

Jackson with one of his best friends, Johnny. Jacks played the detective and Johnny had the lead.

The Missionaries from our Church being goofy with Jacks.

You thought Missionaries never had fun, right?;)

Em, Dave, Elder Dayley and Denise. This was his last night with us.

I love our family!!!

Thanksgiving afternoon. Everyone was sooo hungry!!

At our Thanksgiving table. I think we all look so amazing. And the food...well whomever the cook was...she was marvelous;)

Elder Johnson, Elder Christensen and the Ackman family.

Such a silly photo of us!! Love it!

I did my next word layout, but um...don't know where the word came I'm all messed up and making up words (I think I just pulled random words from your posts and not the ACTUAL word) anyway, will post it in the next couple days and then try to get back on track with your word list!! Hope you have a wonderful day!
