Thank You

As many of you know Sylvia and I are one of the families truly blessed to enjoy a weekly visit from Maura to help us out around the house. Last week she redid our flower bed, and if you saw the bumper crop of weeds, and dandelions that Sylvia and I had growing through a protective layer of last year's dead tree leaves, it's very simple to see just how incredibly far above and beyond the call our dear friend went for us last Tuesday evening.
Maura, the flowerbed is gorgeous. Thank you so much for everything you do for us, and giving us the pleasure of having you visit our home weekly. I really wish we could pay you more than we do, but hopefully our heartfelt gratitude will cover that. We love you and THANK YOU.

Keep Your eye on the goal

Like probable millions of others, yesterday with a strong sense of dismay, I watched the seemingly invincible and unbeatable race horse "Big Brown" falter to a meager last place finish while his owners and jockey tried to race him into triple crown , horse racing history. This got me thinking especially after Maura asked me today "Have you had any fun this week?" What I heard from this friendly, caring question was, Did you continue pursuing your goal this week? In honesty, I had to answer no. This took me back to yesterday's horse race and how all the hype, talk and speculation was met with such disappointing results. I really don't want this in my life. We are all told throughout are lives as members of the church that we are to "endure to the end" and I think this is especially true with those of us who are striving for "triple crown" goals like my entry into the 2009 Flying Pig 5K. I want to re affirm my dedication to my goal as well as send my best hopes and prayers to any of you who are striving for your own, personal goals and having a hard time pursuing them. I hope that we will be able to stay strong, resolute and dedicated to seeing the accomplishment of all of our goals come true.
