TWO weeks


Today we are headed back to the ranch after a 2 week stay in beautiful Provo.
A BIG thanks to mom and dad for letting
 us crash their home for the last 2 weeks. 
 And when I say "crash",  I mean really mean CRASH. 
 We invaded every livable space with our bodies,
 our stuff, and our dog.  
I am very grateful my children are doing BYUI and home school.  
We have been able to stay on top of everything 
amidst the travelling and changes.

We have some big changes happening in our very near future.
Next week, we are headed to Arizona for surgery.
I am regrettably having my pinkie amputated and
other skin releases on various parts of my body.  
I am not necessarily looking forward to 
living in Arizona for however long the surgery and recovery will take
in the blazing heat, but I'll be with Lindsay
 so it really can't be too bad.  
Speaking of Lindsay, she and Spencer and their boys 
drove the 10 hours from Arizona last week so they 
could see me receive my Honorary Doctorate.
What amazing wonderful friends they are!
The rest of the week was spent together hanging out 
 in Salt Lake City to visit museums, Church history sites, and
Temple Square.  We also spent a good amount of time
 driving around town to find good treats and of course, eating out.
Also, Lindsay taught me how to administer an insulin shot
to their 8 year old son Baron who has type 1 diabetes.
You know, just in case anything should happen:
she could count on me.

Once I said to my brother Jesse ONE month before my 
airplane accident that if anything
should happen to me, that I wanted him to take care of my children.
  So really, you never know.

Hopefully next week I will have a better grip on all 
the changes we are making with job, home, ranch, and surgeries.
For now, I will look at these photos and relish in the friendships with
family and friends that I so graciously have been given.

Teachings from RMN:
"I fear that there are too many priesthood bearers who 
have done little or nothing to develop their ability to access 
the powers of heaven. I worry about all who are impure in their thoughts, 
feelings, or actions or who demean their wives or children, 
thereby cutting off priesthood power."
