Bye-bye, Deedee

Yesterday we said goodbye to Deedee, who decided that being a guide dog wasn't for her.  I'm so thankful for the Guide Dogs for the Blind organization, that is committed to its purpose and to the dogs.  I know that GDB will find a placement for Deedee where she will thrive.  Who knows?  With Deedee's energy and drive, we might read about her climbing Mt. Everest someday! 


Deedee started the day like every other day, waiting patiently for the OK to eat breakfast.

After fueling up, we played outside for a while.



Then it was bath time.  (No photo of that--have you ever tried bathing a dog and taking a photo at the same time?!)

After drying off, there was time to tackle another chew toy before leaving to catch the puppy truck back to the Guide Dog for the Blind campus.

Bye-bye, Deedee!  I wish you the best in your new phase of life.

Thanks for Guide Dog puppies, and those who career-change, too.

A smiling woman and the caption: "Join us for RootsTech's 10 Year Anniversary to celebrate THE STORY OF YOU rootstech February 26-29, 2020 Salt Lake City In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time .

If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech !  RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events.  After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address.  Photo: Saroo Brierley pauses from signing his book to smile at the camera with John and me Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly , a

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

Photo: White statues of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus in a reflecting pool. Gold baubles float in the water around them. This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour: Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overv

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren
