Easter catch-up...

We had such a wonderful Easter....we went home to my parents house, and everyone was able to come home and be there so it was really fun. On Saturday morning my cousin had a little cancer run for her senior project, Chase ran the 3 mile run and i ran the 5 mile run. The whole fam did it, and we had tons of fun. Followed by family parties, lots of food, and easter sunday.
Here are a few pics from our fun weekend.
Hope you all had a wonderful easter as well.

good day

yesterday was a good day.
nothing special or important happened,
it was just simply good.
maybe it was cuz i was more grateful for life (previous post)
i like days like that.
my man is out of town, again....(that job of his)
so i'll take advantage of that and head home
to spend some quality time w/
my lovely parents and adorably twitterpaited lil sis.
(and my other darling sis's too)
i love general conference weekend.
i love spiritual inspiration.
i love weekends @ home.
i miss my husband.
the end.
(left my camera in i'm being a boring blogger till it returns to me, sorry)

...a little inspiration (mostly for myself)

A Thankful Heart

When you feel the impulse to be judgmental, let that be a cue for you to first be thankful. When you discover that you’re focusing on what’s wrong, use that as a reminder of all the many things that are right.

Immediately upon waking up each morning, think of ten things you are grateful for at the moment. As you fall asleep at the end of the day, fill your thoughts with thankfulness for the good and valuable blessings in your life.

Give the power of your thoughts to the positive influences in your world, and they will become more influential. Remind yourself often of what works well, and you’ll naturally find ways to make many other things work well.

The way to enjoy success is not to study failure. They way to experience success is to extend and expand the success you already know.

Gratitude is so powerful because it makes you so powerful. Gratitude puts you in a positive frame of reference within which many more positive things can happen.

Begin each day, end each day, and live each day with a sincerely thankful heart. And as each day passé, you’ll have more and more for which to be thankful.

-Ralph Marston

*i think i should try this sometime. I think we would all be a happier people if we strived to look for the good in our lives, instead of always seeing the bad.
