Throwback Thursday: My Great-Grandma Kimes

My mom with her Grandma Kimes
None of my great-grandparents were still alive by the time I was born, so I have had to learn of them from my own parents' memories.

Ten Things of Thankful: April 2014 Conference Edition

It's time for another Ten Things of Thankful post, and I am so excited!  Before I started my blog, I thought long and hard about what to call it.  I wanted a name that would not change with circumstance, but something that would be long-lasting and would serve me not only then, but in the future.  I decided upon the affirming, "Thankful Me."  It served as a reminder to myself not to complain--at least not too much, and particularly not online.  I, though non-tattooed, essentially branded myself.  I am Thankful.

it's a small world after all

"It's a small world" (Disney does not capitalize the ride's name) premiered at the World's Fair in April of 1964.  Nearly ten years later, in December of 1973, I visited Disneyland for the first time, and experienced for myself small world's journey around the world.  I don't vividly remember much about that vacation, but I do recall the anticipation and excitement of riding "it's a small world."  I also remember my mom really enjoyed the attraction.  She might have even gotten teary-eyed.
