Time for Blog Adjustments

In short:  same blog, different look.  I spent way too much time yesterday pretending that I understand html code.  (I don't.) 

I still need to label many of the older posts, so they will show up under the tabs.  The blog hops page needs work, but it's going to take me a while year to figure out how to line the buttons up nicely.  I want to resize my "Thankful thought" and signature line.  I'd like to redesign my blog button and favicon.  I want to update my profile.  I might even change some of the days that I post, or not follow as strict of a schedule as I have for the past year.  We'll see.  I'll let you know as soon as I decide. 

In the meantime, take a look around.  What do you think?  If you find any broken links or things that otherwise don't work, please let me know.  (And if you know how to fix the problem, all the better.)


Thanks for google search, and bloggers who have written tutorials about blogging.

  1. I already like it better. It loads a lot faster than the previous one. I'm glad you kept the family photo. I've always liked it. I'm off to look around...

  2. Wow! Very nice look. I know it took a ton of work and frustration but perseverance always pays off and this time it did for sure. Nice job. I like your button, that's on my list of things to do.

  3. I think it is looking great. It seemed to struggle loading and sizing the family photo in the sidebar when I change pages but it does size and I don't know what is causing the issue...

    1. Hmm, I see what you mean about the sizing issue, but I don't know what is causing the problem, either. I'll have to puzzle on that a bit. I didn't actually change anything about the photo from the old blog design to the new, so I'm not sure how to make it better. I might not get it fixed soon, but I'll try to figure it out. Thanks for the feedback.

  4. An ambitious project for sure! I wouldn't even know where to begin a remodel of my blog.

    I like the tabs at the top.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.
