After the Storm....

This week I will be going (as a leader, of course) to the Stake young women's camp. I don't particularly enjoy the sleeping arrangements of any overnight camp, but being able to spend the week with wonderful, energetic young women, surrounded by beautiful, glorious nature, more than makes up for the discomforts of the nights. We have been very busy trying to plan all the activities. But right now we are enjoying a wonderful "Florida thunder and rain storm". The weather forecast however couldn't be better for the rest of the week - lower 70's every single day. If I did not have the knowledge of what is ahead, I would be so depressed right now, feeling that all the preparations were in vain, and that our camp was ruined. But the knowledge that the good days are just a few hours away helps me to even enjoy the storm! This is just like what the Gospel does for my life.

I have been thinking about starting this blog for so long! Finally I decided to just do it.

This week has gone too fast. I came back Monday night from a short trip to Utah. It is so wonderful to see our children and their little families. Each family is so unique and I really enjoy visiting them and realizing how different doesn't necessary mean better or worse. They are all good and it is so much fun to see them.

I stayed at Tito and new home. They are working on painting, changing carpet and installing new flooring. I don't know how they managed to accomplish so much: Tito is going to school and working as a fireman. Karsen works two days a week as a Nurse Practitioner and they have their little boy Diego. We are so proud of them! I did not help them at all, just played with Dieguito! It was my intention to help with the actual move, but the house is not ready yet. It is such a cute house, and they are looking forward to having more space!
