Hair done

The Nielson girls splurged this last week while
in Arizona, and we all got a cut and curl.
The last time I got my haircut was about 3 years ago,
 and it was a split-end city for me.

I don't know what happened, but Lottie must have gotten
 five years older since her trim and curl.
(She's also amazing at selfies).
She kept telling me she got her "hair done."
Clane had their hair cut and then straightened.
It was fun for a day, but they were freaking out 
because they missed their wild curls.
  I had forgotten how much I love having my hair done.
I don't know what the deal is, but I never make
 time to do that... it's just one of those things for me.
Also, I can never EVER make it look good after, 
so I am setting myself up for failure. 

Later that evening, I spoke to a group of women and
 shared my story and my love for God,
His grace and mercy in my life and recovery.
It was truly a beautiful night.
It was so lovely to have my girls join us that evening and so
comforting to see them in the crowd.
They are a HUGE part of the story and so supportive.
After, we went to get a treat with Spencer and Lindsay.

Spencer + Lindsay

What would Arizona be like without a visit (or two)
 to The Sweet Tooth Fairy??

Lindsay is my most wonderful friend, and I love her so much.
Plus, one day, we will share grandchildren (Riggs + Charlotte).

Now we're back to the grind at the ranch,
but rumor has it that Lindsay and Spencer and their family are
coming to visit us here, and the Jonesons will reunite again.

I really hope so (plus, we left half of our stuff
at their house).

"Doors of Death" April, 1992
"We mourn for those loved and lost. 
Mourning is one of the deepest expressions of pure love. 
It is a natural response in complete accord with divine commandment:
 "Thou shalt live together in love, insomuch that thou
 shalt weep for the loss of them that die." (D&C 42:45.)
Moreover, we can't fully appreciate joyful reunions later
 without tearful separations now. 
The only way to take sorrow out of death is to take love out of life."
