Why does something always seem to happen? Just when things were getting better? This is a question all of us ask from time to time. Sometimes it is hard to keep a proper perspective of things. I was reading the Ensign and came across this short story from last months issue. It touched me and I thought you might like to read it too. Just click on the link.

I would also recommend you read the latest post on It is also a good one.

Look at the fun you could be having!

52 Blessing Project - Week 3

There are so many things I consider a blessing in my life right now, it was hard to pick one thing. But it became easy when I really stopped to think about it. This week I am grateful for toilets that work. Now, this is not something that normally crosses my radar. But after months of putting up with a handle that had to be held down, and another one that ran continually I had a mini hissy fit and voila! Jim finally fixed them. Wow! You can flush and walk away and be confident the next time you return there will not be a surprise.
It doesn't take much to make me happy.

This blessing was reinforced as I was sitting in the parking lot at work when a middle age man came out of the office, walked over to where I was sitting in my car and peed on the the bushes! I was horrified! What should I do? Do I watch? Do I laugh? Do I honk the horn? No I did nothing. I was so afraid he would turn around and flash me, I didn't want to see anything. I keep my eyes on the floor. But after he was in his car I gave him the evil eye. Don't think he cared. Now I know why the bushes aren't doing so well. It's not the lack of water.
