Energy and Guardian Angels

We really had a good, busy weekend. Friday the kids and I went to the park and met my good friend Brittany and her kids. They all played and we got to visit. It was great. Tolan and I went on a date that evening and went to dinner with his parents, then just the two of us went for a long, nice drive up the canyon. Ahhh, some time together was wonderful.

Saturday we worked ALL day long in the yard and in the house and I have to say, I have never enjoyed digging in the dirt so much! It is wonderful to be able to put in a hard day's work and survive it! :)

Sunday was very special for me. We went to Grantsville, where many of the relatives on my dad's side of the family live. It is the first time I have been there since my Grandma's funeral in January. My life has changed so much since then, it is hard to imagine... As I saw her house, then her headstone for the first time, I felt very at peace, despite the tears that streamed from my face. I know that she is now one of the guardian angels who stayed by my side every day and night in the hospital. With her "Prayer Bear" by my side, I made it through the most difficult days of my life. I shudder to think how I would have gotten through without so many angels (here and from heaven) by my side. I love you, Grandma B. I miss you.

While in Grantsville, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner and visit with my cousin, Brad Orgill, and his wife Niki and their family. We so love them and the hospitality they showed to all our crazy kids! It was a blessed day and can't wait for the next family gathering!

I have heard so many sad stories of families who are suffering lately... My heart aches for those in physical and spiritual pain. Please remember in your prayers, to pray, by name, for those you know of who are suffering. I can tell you, without a doubt, that prayer works. I am living proof! Much love and peace to all.

I'm so glad that you got to go see Grandma's gravestone. I miss her so much. But, at the same time I feel so close to her. I know she was with you all those long hard days in the hospital.

I'm glad was so great to you guys...enjoy it while you can, usually he's a stinker ;)
