Six Sentence Story: Safety

Photo: Clouds turn pink, orange, and yellow as the sun sets behind mountains
Soft words, spoken with a sweet smile, silence my racing thoughts,
And I know that I need not 
Fear.
External forces outside my control can storm and rage, but
This--our family, our faith--remain firm and unshakable. With
You by my side, we can live by the refrain:
"Come what may, and love it."*

*from a talk by Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.)

Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
