One of my favorite movies is Secretariat. Consequently, one of my favorite quotes is from that movie: "This is not about going back. This is about life being ahead of you and you run at it! Because you never know how far you can run unless you run." I run my race every day...and I walk tall because I am a daughter of our Heavenly Father. This life is not always easy...some days the race seems longer than other days. However, I know who I am. I know my worth. I know that I am never alone. Heavenly Father loves me; and I love Him...with all my heart. I love the gospel...with all my heart.
I once read a quote that touched my heart; and although I cannot recall the exact words, the meaning is dear to me. If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently...you protect it. You hold it close to your heart. You don't make it common...just another thing...for it is extraordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It is special...a thing of indescribable beauty...because you have made it so...and it grows more beautiful and priceless day by day. Eternal marriage is just like that...and that is what I want.
I love my son, my family, memories of my mom, my birds, my job, laughing, hugging, holding hands, kissing, lilacs, chocolate, watching movies while cuddling, cheese, cleanliness, reading, dogs, cooking, walking, the smell of clean laundry, soft blankets, pictures of family and friends, long showers, security, rain, camping, lace, candles, roses, music, gardening, wind chimes, romance.
Like Shrek, and ogres everywhere, I am like an onion...I have layers...many, many layers. You cannot "know" me simply by reading my greeting or looking at my pictures. So...don't be shy. If you have a question, ask it!
