Just a new post...with nothing exciting

I have been trying to figure out what to write about because I got a comment from my mother..."new post please." Yes ma'am!

But what to write about....BEATS the you know what out of me!

I guess I could write about Cody's new way to make me laugh. He does this complete hickish voice but before he talks he laughs like a total redneck. "Hueck hueck I'm from SHow Low." He sang a song to me the other night in that voice. Its called, "I Married My Sister But Mama Said 'No'". It is very clever and the whole time he does it in his high pitch redneck voice. I am usually dying laughing by the time he is done. He would go on for hours if I let him. He is definitely entertaining. Oh he has nothing against Show Low or Chanolow in his words...its just playing around.

General Conference Sunday afternoon Session was so good. Every woman I have talked to loved the talks given by Pres. Monson and I think it was Jefferey R. Holland...I don't know...we listened on the radio so we didn't have the watcher friendly words along the bottom. (Very inconvenient actually.) The spirit was very strong and it was just so inspiring. I did get my jeans all cut. I started to lay it out on the floor to see how big it would be...of course it didn't fit because the quilt is bigger than the floor which isn't hard to believe. Maybe when I make baby quilts they will fit on the floor!

Last nite we watched a movie called, "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium". We had no clue what it was about but it was a pretty good movie. You do have to use your imagination but I thought it was a very inspiring movie that had a lot of truths to it if you really pay attention. Dustin Hoffman played "Mr. Magorium" and did a great job. In the end he said a quote that just kinda struck me and Cody.
"Your life is an occasion, rise to it." I just thought ya know...it really is. There are so many things around us each day to be thankful for, so many opportunities given for us to become a better person and just enjoy what we have but what human actually does all the time? (I know I don't) Each life is special. Each one of us has a special talent that won't compare to someone elses and each of us has a divine mission on the earth. So why do we get so down on ourselves and think we're worthless and that our life is just another life when its not. Its an occasion that is taken for granted and not lived to its fullest but should be. When talking to people about happiness they'll say "when I move out I'll be happy" "when I get married I'll be happy", "when I'm done with school I'll be happy" "when I get caught up on my bills I'll be happy"(caught up on bills...thats absurd) but why not make the best out of our lives and be happy with what we have and who we are. In my mind as long as we're doing what we're supposed to be doing and trying our hardest to be our best then thats happiness. I'm sure its been state before but if not then I"ll be the first to say it, Happiness is a state of mind...not an accomplishment. Happiness surrounds us each day if we let it otherwise your life will never be full of good memories and you'll never see the good around you.
