"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep 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 experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

More Wind

This week has been cold, windy and lots of rain. We were at Jolene's soccer practice when the wind really picked up. By the time we had gotten home the wind was really blowing. The girls were helping me fix dinner when we heard this really loud noise coming from outside. When we looked out the front windows there were several garbage cans rolling down the street, shingles were blowing off roof tops and a few lawn chair cushions were flying in the air. It was really a sight to see. With all the tornado's happening around the country this wind was nothing, but it sure left a footprint when it was over. In the morning as we drove to school we saw this beautiful, big, old, tree completely blown over roots and all. We learned the wind last night got up to 55mph! So grateful to have been inside safe, and no major damage to our home except a few missing shingles.
