Happy Friday!!

Two Things I am Grateful For:

1) Friday's!  I am so grateful today is Friday!

2) Our Bishop. He is just simply amazing. I cannot tell you how blessed we are to have this man serve as our Bishop.  I am also grateful for his wife and family too.

This is a photo from the beach in Lompoc.  Where I grew up.  Beautiful isn't it?

From the Heart:

In keeping with our theme, here is another idea....

As people grow older, their body begins to slow down and they become less mobile and lose their muscle strength. Simple tasks like carrying groceries or walking up and down the stairs often become a struggle for them.

So it is the duty for those us who are younger and more physically able to help them when we can, like aiding them when they are putting their groceries in their car.


The elderly is a group of people who often get overlooked in our society, and don’t always get the respect they deserve. For the younger generations who often don’t have much contact with the elderly, it can be hard to know how to assist the elderly, while treating them with dignity and respect. Doing simple tasks for them will remind them of the fact that they are valued by others.

Step It Up

When you see an elderly person loading or unloading their groceries in a store parking lot or in front of their house, offer your assistance and help them carry their bags.

Keep It Simple

If you see that an elderly person has just finished loading their groceries into their car, offer to return their shopping cart to where it belongs. Even the smallest act of service is rewarding.

From the Kitchen:

Hash Brown Casserole

  • 1 (26-ounce) bag frozen hash browns

From the Spirit:

Christ will not subvert [our] agency even when he knows the pain [our] wrong choices will cause [us]. He warns, rebukes, and allows natural consequences to impact people when they sin. He teaches, guides, and allows blessings to flow when they do right. They are allowed to perish or prosper as they choose.” 

From the Schmidt's:

This has been a crazy week!  Busy and all that that brings.  So, this being Friday is a huge blessing.  I am ready for a nice weekend.  

We have an appointments tonight but I guess Kevin will not be able to make it.  He cannot get out of bed the pain is so intense.  He has an appointment scheduled for next week.  

I mentioned earlier this week that we were experiencing some odd things.  Well yesterday I had a very intense headache and I rarely get headaches.  If I get them it's usually with a sinus infection or something.  This headache was different.  It was making me sick to my stomach and everything.  So, I came home from work early and just went right to bed.  Thankfully it was gone this morning.

Well, I will share more tomorrow. Take care and we will talk soon.  Happy Friday!
