|memory gem of Andrew
If you will remember our Layton house had white carpet and really was “my dream house”…I loved that house and tried to protect it from the “outdoors”. One morning Andrew had been outside playing and gathering “treasures”. (he was around 4) In he comes with bags of rocks, big ones, little ones, black ones, flat ones…it was quiet the array. He was so excited about these rocks and when I told him that he was not keeping those rocks in my house, he said, “but mom, it is my house too”.
What the heck!!! What was I going to say after that?? I agreed and told him he could have ONE bag in the house.
Since then I have tried to surround myself with things that make us happy…even if they are rocks.
More memory gems tomorrow😊
|Today’s memory gem is about Haylie …
I love how a child helps you see things clearly….
When Haylie was around 4 years old, we drove up to the temple on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, at the time we were living in Las Vegas. It was just so beautiful and peaceful. As we rounded a corner of the temple, with Haylies hand in mine, I pointed up to the top of the temple and said, “Haylie, what is that”. I realized I was taking a big risk that I had failed to teach her something she should know, but I asked anyway. She looked up, paused, then a smile crossed her face as she recognized with amazement and quickly replied,
“It’s a trophy”.
SMILE!!! My work is done! Sometimes we just complicated life too much.
Join me tomorrow for Andrew’s memory gem

When Hillary was around four or five she woke up and said, “I had the best dream last night”! Oh, I said tell me about it. She said, I dreamed that Jesus came to our house and he put his hands on my head and gave me a blessing”.
I knew from that moment on that Hillary would be spiritually in tune and guided by the spirit…don’t you all agree that it’s true!!
Donald’s story will come tomorrow…
