• Regarding trials, including of our faith and patience, there are no exemptions—only variations (see Mosiah 23:21). These calisthenics are designed to increase our capacity for happiness and service. Neil A. Maxwell November 2002

At times I miss my family and where I grew up.

I never see this sign without a knot in my throat.

Other signs really get one's attention. Driving through the mountains there are signs warning of dangerous areas.

One rather amused us. Do you think this is a warning about deer that "fly" or deer that "die"? or perhaps about deer about to become "angels"?

My parents celebrate 65 years of marriage 14 October  2013.

In August family and friends gathered to congratulate them.

I always miss my siblings. They are my best friends. I love each of them. Parents and siblings are one of the things I am most grateful for.  Special thanks to my neice, Chrystal, for pictures of the event.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada.
