But my favorite memories include ...staying up late to help Cardi bake Pueblo bread for her class followed by a frantic search for her recorder sheet music for "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" that she needed the next day for a concert for grandparent's day. We finally ended up finding a couple different versions on line.
Ice Cream and Movies:
I love when I get the chance to have one on one time with my kids.
On Friday, Bella and Cardi each attended a sleep over. John and Meredith were asleep and so I got to spend some one on one time with Jackson. He is so fun to watch movies with. He has such a hearty laugh for such a skinny boy! I loved just sitting next to him eating icecream and soak all his sweetness in.
Lessons on Love:
In the midst of all the humdrum that fills my days, my sweet friend Linda, died from a rare form of cancer a little over a week ago. She was a beautiful, vibriant person who left her mark on everyone she met.
She passed quietly in her home surrounded by her family. Her funeral services were at 7:30 p.m. on Valentine's Day ... something at first I was sad about... I was sad that her 5 beautiful kids would always associate Valentine's Day (a day about love) with their mother's death but after attending her service I left feeling that this was a perfect day to remember Linda's life. She loved her husband and her kids, she loved her family, and everyone around her and she was deeply loved. I left with a renewed appreciation for temple covenants and the knowledge that families are eternal and with a secret vow in my heart to love more.
