Brightly Shining Stars

This is our newest grandchild, Hayden Reese.  Today was her blessing day.  Isn't she beautiful?  Katie sent me this picture only this morning (PR is four hours ahead of us in time, so her day was half over when mine was beginning).  It's pictures like this that remind me how sweet and innocent these little spirits are, and how great our responsibility is to them.  It's quite awesome, frankly.  It is with great regret that I look back on certain times, and wish I had tried harder, done better, put in a more courageous day's work.  So I love these little children with all my heart.  They are a second chance, a second opportunity to teach a small child to love Heavenly Father, their brothers and sisters all around them, and, most importantly, themselves.  Because if you love yourself, you can see your divine heritage.  And if you can see that, choosing the right is so much easier.  Then we can all be like stars shining brightly, shining for the whole world to see.


  1. So true! She was so sweet today :)

  2. She is such a beautiful little girl, Karen. That smile is as sweet as can be. And Katie is a beautiful young mother, too.

    So congratulations...on both of your girls! (Well, all three of them, actually.)



Sit down, have some red punch and cookies, and tell me EVERYTHING...
