About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates 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 a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors 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."

Happy Birthday my little Man!


Today is Weldon's 6th birthday. I can't believe that I am old enough to have a 6 year old. But as I sit here writing this blog, I am saddened. I can't have joy in the fact that my 6 year old can tie his shoes, knows his alphabet and can argue his way out of anything. It hurts sometimes knowing that he most probably will never serve a mission for the Lord, get married in the Lord's house and raise a few headstrong boys. But I do have joy knowing that he is one of the most kind, loving, charming, willfull, patient, giving and spiritual boys I know. The Lord sent him here to brighten my day and the days of those he spends time with. So here is to my little Man - I love you!
