New House, New Beginnings

Our move has been traumatic. We’ve been told by our sons that they’re likely not going to visit too often because we’ve ‘moved to the end of the earth’!
So, here’s some photos of the end of the earth:
Baker Lane Home
Our New Home – BevanResort has lost it’s lake…

Our Living Room – affectionately labeled ‘the Celestial Room’ by a young grandson – but normally referred to as ‘the Visiting Teaching/Home Teachers Room’.

Gorgeous swimming weather – even with fresh snow on the Stansbury Mountains!!
Three granddaughters and a friend swimming with Nana last Tuesday.

Our INSPIRATIONAL FAMILY FOCUS comes from Pres. Dieter F Uchtdorf: UCHTDORF_dieter-f-uchtdorf
“We cannot and we must not allow ourselves to get distracted from our sacred duty. We cannot and we must not lose focus on the things that matter most.”

Hopefully, it is evident that we have not lost focus on the things that matter most.  We have lost our business, our retirement, and our home – BUT NOT OUR TESTIMONY AND FAITH!

The new house is beautiful! It sounds like I have a couple of cousins who have no idea where "the end of the earth" is, because they haven't seen where I live. We live a good 45 miles BEYOND the end of the earth.

They just don't know what they're missing.

Yes, especially now that we've been unfriended by one son. At least the other one now likes the fact that we're close to the racing at Deseret Peak!!
