"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

Loss of words..............

Sometimes I am at a loss for words....... really I am. I want to post photos.. I want to yell actually. I want to have a conversation with God and I want him to explain why. I really dont want to hear that it is all part of a big plan.....I want things to make sense that dont...

Instead I sit here and cry. I sit and think about my friend who is losing her battle with cancer. I think about her family and her children and all of those that love her so very much. I will be glad that she is no longer in pain, altho I really think the whole thing just stinks.

I will hug my children... and feel thankful even in the midst of such sorrow. I will feel so thankful for all that she taught me and I will cling to that when my days feel too long. I will open the photos of her on my computer and see her smile and remember.

she is so amazing... i will make her proud.

You already have! And while I've never met Ann, I've felt her spirit through you and the lessons you've learned from spending time with them. Kelly, you're amazing! In all your busy-ness let your heart find that quiet whisper that says "Be Still and Know that I am". Thanks for just being you! Love yer guts my little Holden Homie! hee hee
