She was happy,
She was crazy!
And she needed a bath!
Three, or even four, times a day!
This was Papa John's big birthday weekend, so we barbecued chicken, made homemade pizza, white chicken chili and (of course) cheesecake! It was a wonderful weekend and I will be sorry to see it go. There is nothing quite like babysitting your own grand-children to remind you of those things that are most precious of all. This sweet little angel taught me how life goes on. The things we do are important and everlasting. And perhaps the most precious thing of all, is that all the love you could ever ask for can be found in squishy hugs and sticky kisses. Or as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz says, "There's no place like home!"
“Because love is the great commandment, it ought to be at the center of all and everything we do in our own family, in our Church callings, and in our livelihood. Love is the healing balm that repairs rifts in personal and family relationships. It is the bond that unites families, communities, and nations. Love is the power that initiates friendship, tolerance, civility, and respect. It is the source that overcomes divisiveness and hate. Love is the fire that warms our lives with unparalleled joy and divine hope. Love should be our walk and our talk.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "The Love of God," Ensign, Nov. 2009, 21
