"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience." Gordon B. Hinckley

Talking with Grandpa one last time.

Grandpa would always leave messages on the phone. 
 This was a tender mercy for us to find this after Grandpa was gone.
He left it a week before he passed away.


  1. That was so sweet and so sad. Hang in there I hope you are all doing well

  2. That is so sweet and priceless. It brought tears to my eyes. What a cutie. We miss you guys! By the way I just showed my sister Hailey that crazy picture of Daisie and she is still laughing. I can't get her to stop. And I was laughing so hard at the pictures of Kayla carrying Daisie around on her scooter and acting as a nurf target. So your blog has really entertained us tonight!

  3. Oh what a special surprise to find that message! How lucky you are to have that and hold onto it forever! Kayla is hilarious, poor Daisie gets to be her little friend in her adventures:) love the nerf target pic...so funny! she has her mama's silly personality:)

  4. I hope you are doing well. I can't imagine what a loss it must be to have your Dad (in law) away until the next life. Give your hubby squeezes from us. I love that you heard his voice again. So sweet.

    Just wanted you to know my blog has gone private. I'd love to send you an invite. Can you email me your email address? Mine is jjaoee at gmail dot com.

    Your family is too beautiful. Someday we may have to set up our oldest. ;)
