Everyone who knows me knows I love puzzles. They help me to think.As I put them together I am also able to piece my thoughts together. I get angry when a piece is missing. It just riuns the picture. Last night I couldn’t sleep a thought just kept repeating in my mind relentlessly in an effort to make sure I wouldn’t forget it I geuss because now I can’t focus on anything but that one thought. The thought that kept me awake was simple: You are a piece in the puzzle that is my life and if you were missing my life would be chaos because I wouldn’t have the whole picture.That’s it!The more I think about it the more it makes sense because when I am connected with the family and friends that complete the puzzle that is called my life I feel whole and when they are missing I feel incomplete, confused and even angry…Like a puzzle no one will everfit in someoneelse’s place that is not how puzzles work. puzzles are black and white they either fit or they don’t…

Time flies…

way to fast!I was looking at my drafts of things I haven’t published and some of them were way old. i deleted them of course, but what amazed me was how U can change over such a short period of time and yet have some things remain the same. For example, I deleted a draft talking about my kids and that time of yearWhile I still love my kids;however, it wasn’t that hard this year and yet I didn’t really get into the Christmas spirit. I couldn’t bring myself to listen to Christmas music and it had nothing to do with my loss. Holidays with the exception of Mother’s Day I still can do without them. Its been four years now and I feel numb for a completely different reason…Its neither good or bad it just IS.Will time and circumstances change how I feel about holidays…only time will tell. Valintine’s day is next..Yuck!!!

Sounds Like Life to Me

May sound like life, but sometimes visiting an alternate universe is fun and relaxing when life hits you square in the face.

Hurt and pain

  • Posted on November 25, 2009 at 11:05 am

I am an individual who has adopted the philosophy let few people into your life because the less who know the real U the less U get hurt by them when they make changes that leave U out or they just simply move on.Anyway, its easier to put yourself down than it is to accept someone else’s criticism(even if they have a point).I didn’t just wake up one morning and say, “Hey that sounds like a good idea.”. It devloped over time because I decided that emotion hurt and pain just sucked. Life feels much better when I’m numb so when something life changing or tragic happens it is just momentary and doesn’t linger any longer than I want it to.I am in control not my hurt or my pain.Messed up, yes? Well, I am sitting at work my heart aches and my throat is tight. I am fighting tears that are beginning to burn my eyes because the fact is what I have failed to realize is life is constantly changing,some people mean WELL and some are just mean. It is a conscious choice how U choose to react because in the end, U only need to make decisions that will help U to be happy or find joy and it is then and only then that the pain and hurt u feel can be used for your benefit and sometimes for the benefit of others.Its not my job to make someone happy, but if I can help them on their journey I am happy to do it.

Q: How many women with PMS does it take to change a light bulb?

A: One. Only ONE!!And do you know WHY? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb! They don’t even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT! They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out. And, once they figured it out, they wouldn’t be able to find the light bulbs despite the fact that they’ve been in the SAME CUPBOARD for the past 17 YEARS! But if they did, by some miracle, actually find them… 2 DAYS LATER the chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE


I’m sorry….what did you ask me?

Okay~ for the the last few weeks that have turned into months.I have felt unfullfilled,as if there is something that I should be doing and just haven’t found that something yet.Well,I have been searching for this success and then I read this today:
Feel Success
The world does not owe you joy or pleasure or fulfillment.
Rather, the world gives you ample space in which to create as much joy, pleasure and fulfillment as you wish.
Those who find a way to enjoy whatever life has to offer are the ones who get to enjoy the very best that life has to offer.
It’s a matter of choice and the choice is up to you.
It is easy to feel sorry for yourself, and not at all effective in moving you forward.
Yet just as easily you can instead choose to feel joyful for yourself.
The way you feel has a powerful influence on what you do and how much you achieve. And the way you feel is whatever you decide to feel.

Instead of struggling to work against your feelings,put your feelings to work for you. Truly and authentically feel success, achievement,fulfillment and joy, and you’ll naturally put those feelings into effective action.
Yes, you most certainly can feel precisely the way you wish to feel, at any time, in any place.
Feel the life you wish to live, and
you’re solidly on your way there.
Whoever Dan is he is sure a wise man!
Thanks Heidi!

Counting my blessings

  • Posted on March 12, 2009 at 11:46 am

I promised to fill you in on why I need to focus on my blessings not my problems. Well it all started with a routine eye exam. I went in to my eye doctor because my lenses where scratched up something fierce. Well, my doctor looked in to my eyes and said I see a problem in your left eye. I want you to see Dr. Allan (a surgeon.).. Well, I made the appointment for the following Wednesday and sure enough there was a problem. He sent me to a retina specialist in Salt Lake and I had surgery to fix a hole in my retina. I wasn’t worried about the surgery thanks to someone who shared an inspirational experience from his life and, of course, a Father’s blessing. It’s the recovery. Its moving, in my opinion at a snail’s pace which is driving me crazy because the only print I can read clearly is extra large print and even it’s a little blurry. This is why when I feel frustrated I count my blessings. For example,
1. My vision is returning. There are other’s who are not as fortunate. It is a blessing also to now have empathy for them because I was able to experience what their world is like. I am grateful for my sight.
2. I have a family who has been willing to help me and support me through this as well as other trials that have been difficult.(Again, other are not blessed with such a great support system.)
3. The Priesthood and a dad who is worthy to use it righteously and happy to exercise it. I am grateful that my dad has been there countless times and I have been healed and comforted.
I could go on; however, I think you get the general idea. I am truly blessed so my sight will return and I will be prepared for what my Father in Heaven has in mind for me.

Christmas gifts

  • Posted on December 31, 2008 at 3:44 pm

I have a few questions about Christmas gifts.

What was the gift you loved giving? Mine were the temple bags I got my parents because my mom kept asking where I got mine and mentioning that she couldn’t find one she felt was worth the price. I love gifting gifts that someone has wanted and not been able to get for themselves for whatevr reason. It just seems to mean more when the one your giving it to sees how much effort you put into your gift.

What was a gift you felt you could take back that you gifted? Mine was a loaf of bread. I was so proud that I had the idea to gift bread this year and then I cut into one of my loaves and about half way through it there was a doughy spot about the size of a golf ball or a liitle bit bigger. Those I gifted it to would never let me know how doughy my  bread was so I guess I just have to remeber it was the thought that counts. I mean, how was I supposed to know it would be dough inside when the ouside was such a nice golden brown,right?

Where you able to focus more on the reason for the season or the festivities of the day or some other focus that had nothing to do with the Savior?  It took our branch choir to help me refocus.  I will admit it was still a little difficut; however, I did give it my best effort. Yes, I ang in our choir. I even sang in a quintet(5 ?). Anyway, we sang Mary’s Lullaby from the children’s song book.  I think it went rather well considering that I hadn’t sung in a choir or sang with a small group like that since 2005. I love to sing!

Well, See you next year!

Ain’t it the truth!

Very clever forward!

Dear Tech support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.  In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I’ve tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?
Dear Desperate,  
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.  Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and don’t forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.  But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.
Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)
Also do not attempt to reinstall Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.  In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.
Good Luck,
Tech Support
