Opera Company of Philadelphia "Hallelujah!" Random Act of Culture

As I watched this...the 1st time, I though tI was welling up with tears
because this HOLY song was binging sung in a mall....
That wasn't the reason at all!
The's always about the spirit! I felt the spirit TESTIFY that
Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, Wonderful, Counselor,
The Prince of Peace, The Everlasting Father! HALLELUJAH!
I will praise Him for Ever and Ever!!!

I wish I could have been a spectator at this awe inspiring event! I would have
been singing my little heart out! What an awesome "Random Display of Culture"!

To all mothers...LISTEN UP!

I got this story via e-mail from my own mother. It touched me so much... I wanted it on my blog. The spirit I felt while reading it is worth sharing!... so read it ladies.... it's worth the 5 minutes!

Invisible Mother.....

It all began to make sense, the blank stares, the lack of response, the way one of the kids will walk into the room while I'm on the phone and ask to be taken to the store. Inside I'm thinking, 'Can't you see I'm on the phone?'

Obviously not; no one can see if I'm on the phone, or cooking, or sweeping the floor, or even standing on my head in the corner, because no one can see me at all. I'm invisible. The invisible Mom. Some days I am only a pair of hands, nothing more! Can you fix this? Can you tie this? Can you open this??

Some days I'm not a pair of hands; I'm not even a human being. I'm a clock to ask, 'What time is it?' I'm a satellite guide to answer, 'What number is the Disney Channel?' I'm a car to order, 'Right around 5:30, please.'

I was certain that these were the hands that once held books and the eyes that studied history and the mind that graduated summa cum laude -but now, they had disappeared into the peanut butter, never to be seen again. She's going, she's going, she's gone!?

One night, a group of us were having dinner, celebrating the return of a friend from England . Janice had just gotten back from a fabulous trip, and she was going on and on about the hotel she stayed in. I was sitting there, looking around at the others all put together so well. It was hard not to compare and feel sorry for myself. I was feeling pretty pathetic, when Janice turned to me with a beautifully wrapped package, and said, 'I brought you this.' It was a book on the great cathedrals of Europe . I wasn't exactly sure why she'd given it t o me until I read her inscription: 'To Charlotte , with admiration for the greatness of what you are building when no one sees.'

In the days ahead I would read - no, devour - the book. And I would discover what would become for me, four life-changing truths, after which I could pattern my work: No one can say who built the great cathedrals - we have no record of their names. These builders gave their whole lives for a work they would never see finished. They made great sacrifices and expected no credit. The passion of their building was fueled by their faith that the eyes of God saw everything.

A legendary story in the book told of a rich man who came to visit the cathedral while it was being built, and he saw a workman carving a tiny bird on the inside of a beam. He was puzzled and asked the man, 'Why are you spending so much time carving that bird into a beam that will be covered by the roof, No one will ever see it. And the workman replied, 'Because God sees.'

I closed the book, feeling the missing piece fall into place. It was almost as if I heard God whispering to me, 'I see you, Charlotte. I see the sacrifices you make every day, even when no one around you does.

No act of kindness you've done, no sequin you've sewn on, no cupcake you've baked, is too small for me to notice and smile over. You are building a great cathedral, but you can't see right now what it will become. At times, my invisibility feels like an affliction. But it is not a disease that is erasing my life. It is the cure for the disease of my own self-centeredness. It is the antidote to my strong, stubborn pride.

I keep the right perspective when I see myself as a great builder. As one of the people who show up at a job that they will never see finished, to work on something that their name will never be on. The writer of the book went so far as to say that no cathedrals could ever be built in our lifetime because there are so few people willing to sacrifice to that degree.

When I really think about it, I don't want my daughter to tell the friend she's bringing home from college for Thanksgiving, 'My Mom gets up at 4 in the morning and bakes homemade pies, and then she hand bastes a turkey for 3 hours and presses all the linens for the table.' That would mean I'd built a shrine or a monument to myself. I just want her to want to come home. And then, if there is anything more to say to her friend, to add, 'You're gonna love it there.'

As mothers, we are building great cathedrals. We cannot be seen if we're doing it right. And one day, it is very possible that the world will marvel, not only at what we have built, but at the beauty that has been added to the world by the sacrifices of invisible women.

Great Job, MOM!

What to post.....

I have been a lose for words lately....believe me....I still have idiotic thought and words all the time. I just can't seem to remember any of them lately.

Instead of rambling...Here's what is going on with me right now....
Every Monday morning, Emily has gymnastics at the REC center. SO, I get to exercise...I run.
Every Tuesday morning, Katie has gymnastics....more running for me.
Every Wednesday night Maggie has gymnastics....yep more running.
(Don't worry... Lilli has an activity too, she's just on break from soccer.... she starts again in January with indoor)
I was feeling great, getting strong....and starting to stop dreading the exercise. Then last week.... as I was just about through with my run (about 2.5 miles), my toes on my right foot started going numb. I went the rest of the week with very sore toes.
I thought I would try again on Monday morning, but the last 2 laps of my run, numb toes.
I went to the Chiropractor on Wednesday, he adjusted me, but advised me to take it easy the rest of the week. Which means, I haven't done any exercise this week....I am crabby, lazy, even sick feeling. I have no motivation, and I have eaten really terrible....thanks to the awesome Christmas chocolates that are already covering the grocery store shelves!
I can't win! I hope to do the Elliptical machine next week, so hopefully I will feel better soon.

I changed my mind... they ARE BAD!"

Even my poor ear lobe and my scalp have them...even my fingers and knuckles.
I am going to go get some "knock me on my butt" allergy meds today!
Hopefully that will make my tomorrow a better day!

Some Fun Conversations from Oregon

On our trip to Oregon...we had some pretty funny car memories.
Here are a few...
Mile 39- Lilli... "We're in Oregon? That was easy!"
Mile 155- Maggie... "We're NOT at the Hotel yet...." not a question,
sort of an out of nowhere ramble statement.
Mile 200- Mom..."Next stop, a pretty waterfall!" Katie...."Can I go too?"
The pretty waterfall... and Katie came too!
Mile 500- Emily... "I wanna see a Pink Jeep Beep!"
30 sec. later ..."Mom, did you see a Pink Jeep Beep yet?"
Has anyone EVER seen a pink Jeep?
Depot Bay

Bonneville Fish Hatchery, on the way back home!

At a McDonald's before the Museum....
Maggie..."Why do they keep saying...'#44, your shower is ready.'?"
Joe... "Because this is a Truck Stop, and the Truckers can take showers here."
Lacey... "Are the showers free?"
Joe..."No, they pay for them."
Lacey..." So do they pay for the length of shower?"
Joe... "No, I think it is just one price, and they take as long as they need."
Lilli... "They will need a really long time to wash a whole truck!"

Maryhill Museum steps

Our family inside an art family

Soda Addicts
Maggie..."Can I have some more soda?"
Emily..."Me too!"
Lilli..."Me too!"
Katie..."Me FIRST!"
Emily..."Don't CHUG it ALL!!! Leave some for me! AND leave some for ME!"
Watching Wizard of OZ... about 2 hours left till home
in regards to the Wicked Witch
Katie..."I don't like that Lady!"
Maggie..."I was the Wicked Witch for Christmas."
Much laughter ensues.....
Maggie..."I MEAN... for HALLOWEEN!"
We had a great time, and have so many great memories!

House Concert

Sarah Sample
So, Lindsay, my little sister, majored in Music Therapy at Utah State.
There she met this AMAZING woman, Sarah Sample!
She is a brilliant artist, and you all need to listen to her!
Joe described her sound as a Jewel meets KT Tunstall. I think he hit it on the head.
Brad, Lindsay's hubby set up this house concert to surprise Linds.
It did! She had NO idea, and the look on her face was priceless!
Sarah does these, house concerts, regularly, and it was awesome!
I already loved her! Lindsay let me borrow a CD about a year ago. But now I really love her!
I love the way her voice rolls, and it sends me flying and feeling her every word!
I have never cried as much at a concert as I did tonight! Her music moves the soul, and makes you think, and feel! She made me want to come home a write.
Man, I had such a great time!!
Can't wait to go to the next one! I am totally going to become a goupy!
Brad's mom want to have one at her house, and I am going to envite all my friends, so you all better come with me!
Best $20 I have spent in a long long time!
Thanks, Brad!

good-bye FaceBook

This is not the 1st time that I have turned off my FB account.
It is the 1st time however, that I am having serious FB withdrawls!
FB is soooooo addicting! I was on that dang website over 2 hours a day!
That is 14 hours or more a week, waisted!
56 hours a month!!!
I have been partaking of FB since I have waisted 420 precious hours!

I decided I need to clean my house. I need to pay attention to my kids. Take them to the park and the pool while I still can. I need to feed my kids dinner, not last minute fast food.

I need to re-discover my Heavenly Father. My scriptures need to be dusted off and read!

FB was never a friend! It was a love/hate relationship from the beginning! I loved reading about my friends, giving them advice, letting know I was there. Then it turned into, a ME thing...
Look at MY new hair, tell ME what you think of ME! Comment on MY status!

Slowly my depression crept in, I let it! It meant I would play more FB. I didn't want to do anything else!

I will be a happier, healthier ME now that IT is gone! But I am sad right now! I know alot of my FB "Friends" won't even notice that I am gone. I don't expect them to care. FB is a sort of virtual world. You can be friends with anyone, and they care about you as long as you post it on your FB page.

I will miss the midnight IMing with Kim, and the Family Feud game....Kim's fault! I will miss all the Fast Money's won, thanks to Joe and Sarah! I love you! I will miss Terrell Moffett's beautiful landscape portrait updates, and commenting on them! I will miss flirting with my husband for the whole FB world to see. I love telling how much I love him!

I will miss FB! But I won't miss neglecting my children. I won't miss the fights I got into because people can't read sarcasm. I won't miss "friends" flirting with my husband at 2am!
I won't miss the drama! I won't miss, or wish I had waisted my precious time on something so trivial and worldly!

And, as a bonus.... now I will actually post on my journals so to speak! There is a window of opportuntiy here...I will open it!

Maggie...A few Sundays ago, had a lesson on the resurection.
The teacher asked them to draw a picture what this meant to them.
This is what she drew. When I was cleaning out her church bag, I found it.
I just started crying.
What a sweet spirit filled my soul!
Thank you Maggie.

Oh, Emily... you keep my life exciting!

The other day, Emily and Katie and I walked down to our local corner store, for a treat!
While we were checking out, Emily was dancing around, being crazy, like is always does.
Well, she tripped on her own two feet, like she always does... and fell into a little display.
She was NOT happy about it. I calming asked her if she was okay, to be polite! I didn't want the clerk to think I was a bad mom, but I knew she was fine, she was playing it up, you know, like Emily does so well!
She replied, very strongly, "NO! I think I BROKE........ my heart!"
Soooo cute, and sweet, and funny!

Then, that very same day, at dinner..... Katie spilled her ICE water!
Emily was right in the path of the splash.
Then she proceeded to run down stairs as fast as she could for clean pants.
This was not a typical Emily answer. We were expecting a fit. So, this made us laugh.
Oh, my little girl is growing up! But, I'm glad we are continuing to have the Emilisms!

Yet Another Emily-ism

"Look Katie! Mom is making bikini bread!"

And it was very yummy zucchini bread, indeed!

I love my little know-it-all! Especially when she doesn't know-it-all!!

My View of Twilight

So, I watched "New Moon", finally!
I know, many of you saw this movie on the 1st day, and the rest probably saw it within the 1st month, but I didn't have any one to go it with.
All my really cool fanatic friends all went with other really cool fanatic friends, thus...
Yes, no one REALLY loves me enough to call me up and say, " Hey Lace, we are going to see "New Moon", you wanna come with?"
Any way, that was NOT the reason for this blog, sorry about getting caught up on that tangent.
Here is the reason!!!
I want to know why every one is sooooo in love with Edward.
Yes, I get the whole mysterious thing, but he's pasty white, cold to the touch, Bella can't kiss him without him wanting to bite her, and he is SKINNY! Like way to lean of muscle!
NOW..... What about that CUTE, Native BOY, JACOB!!!
Why was he hiding behind those long locks? The second I saw his hair cut, and his ripped body, no way was I thinking twice that Edward was a hunk!
Jacob is warm, tan, and those pouty, full lips!
I know that Bella LOVES Edward, but I don't have to.
My new fan based hullabaloo will be focused on the Jacob character!
Who do you side with?

I have come to the conclusion that I am a BIG "pet-peever".
I reached this conclusion the other night while awaiting some friends for our monthly GNO.
They were late, and I was bored. So I sat down and started a list.
Here's what I came up with, I'm sure there are more.... but here is a start.
  1. tardiness
  2. clutter
  3. chewing loudly at meals.... my kids do this on purpose because they know it bugs me.
  4. indecisiveness - even in myself
  5. backward toilet paper. It should always be pulled from the top.
  6. non-use of the turning lane when there is traffic
  7. cell phones and driving
  8. stinky smells
  9. chairs that are not pushed in after use
  10. wrinkles in my bedding after it has been made
  11. throw pillows that are not organized
  12. when my towels get folded the wrong way
  13. when my dishwasher gets loaded the wrong way
  14. downer - type people
  15. tangled necklaces
  16. toilet lids up
  17. un-flushed toilets
  18. people who don't wash their hands in public restrooms
  19. little girls (Lilli) who flick their retainers
  20. finding gum on the floor

That's it for now!

My pet-peeves made me realize why I have a hard time letting people do stuff for me.

If it isn't done my way, it isn't the right way! Sick, right?

Child Quote of the Day



That means that nothing is shrunking!

Thank you Emily for giving us an explanation of your made-up word!

Mar 6, 2010


A few days ago, I was walking Maggie to the bus.
I usually don't walk the kids to the bus because they have each other. This year, however, Lilli is in choir. I get the opportunity to take her to school early once a week, which means Maggie is forced to walk to the bus alone! Yeah right, I would be worrying for hours if I didn't see her get on the bus. Hence, I was walking Maggie to the bus.....
After I kissed her good-bye, and she got on the bus, I was walking slowly home. ( I should mention the younger two were still at home sleeping)(Also, the bus stops on a main road)
Okay, back to the story.....
As I was walking slowly home, facing traffic, a car came up on me from behind, sort of weirdly. It slowed down as it got closer to me, but it kept going, and the male driver kept looking in his rear view mirror as he passed.
I heard a loud, forcefully yell in my head......RUN!!! NOW!!!
As I started to run, I saw the car turn down the next street, as though it was going to come up my street, to be off the main road and easier to pull right up to me.
I didn't give myself a chance to find out what was really going to be the outcome. I RAN as fast as could, faster than I have in a LONG time....all the way home, into my house, and locked the door behind me.
I went to the living room and fell to my knees.
In tears I thanked the Lord for the Holy Ghost! I am so thankful that I have this wonderful gift!
And I am so Thankful that my daughters will all be blessed with this wonderful gift in this terrible, and only getting worst world!
How blessed are we all that we belong to The Church of Jesus christ of Letter Day Saints!

I have been under a lot of stress this last couple of days.
I HATE stress.
It gives me pimples!!!!!
Since I have been off my Zoloft, this is the 1st time I have experienced stress beyond my capability to handle.
I have been praying a lot! Sometimes 5 times a day for strength, guidance, and above all to keep my cool with my children.
The Lord hears and answers my prayers each time.
What a blessing, to place a call to God, and recieve you medication instantly!
Peace fills my heart and I can actually hug my child who is screaming at an octave that makes my ear drums want to burst!
What a gracious, merciful Heavenly Father we have!
No matter how big the stress is, He is there! Waiting to answer our call for help!

Emily's Prayer

Tonight, it was Emily's turn to say Family Prayer.
This is what she asked for.....

"Please bless that the LAST DAY will come."


She had said something similar to this at dinner tonight.

She said...."On the Last Day, we are going to die."

Now, I don't know if she was taught this in church, or something similar to this, and is getting her 4 year old head wrapped around the 2nd coming, but it was very honest, and sincere!

She also told Katie that Jesus was going to come down from Heaven and be with us!

Katie was thrilled at this idea, "My Jesus!!!! He come to MY house?"

Oh, how I love to hear them talk about things close to the spirit.

While at my sisters house last weekend, I saw a saying about Christ that I REALLY liked, but can't remember now..... but it something to the effect of,

Christ is a guest at every meal,

A listener to every conversation!

He is smiling at my children, I know!!!

We need to listen to them, and follow their example.

We should be praying for that LAST DAY!

I am so grateful that I learn sweet lessons from the spirits God has entrusted to me!

The idea of Ownership

The other night, I was helping Katie say her prayers.
A ritual that is performed every night as she gets ready to relax.
Well, on this particular night, as we were wrapping up her prayer....

Me,"In the name..."
Katie,"In the name...."
Me, "of Jesus Christ...."
Katie, "That MY Jesus?"
Me, "Yes, of Jesus Christ...."
Katie, "OHHHHH, I Love MY Jesus, HE help me..."
Me, "Yes, Kate, say....of Jesus Christ, Amen....!"
Katie, "Ok, Momma, Jesus Christ, Amen"

What a sweet spirit was felt, I tried not to cry....but I drink these moments in!
The warmth and power of Christ's Love can not be denied when a child testifies of Him!

I Testify of Him as well!
He lives, and he Loves us ALL.
He knows all of us, even by name. He knows are sorrows!
He wants to fill our hearts with His love and peace....
Seek and ye shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you!

Thank you, Katie-Bug!

Quote of the day!

Mom~ "Maggie, I think you definitely got your 'play 60' in today!

Maggie~ "No, more than that, Mom. I probably got a whole hour!"

Morning Breaks.....
The Shadows Flee....

I shot these pictures yesterday morning.
It had just stopped raining, and the sun was trying to show itself.
It looked and smelled serene.
As I shot the swing set, Shadow ran up to me and wanted his picture taken.
All I could think of was that song. I was singing all day!

DON"T Follow MY Example

Saturday night, January 2nd.
I sat at the sewing machine, trying to finish the jumper I made for Maggie for Christmas.
As I went to pull some thread for more lead, I leaned forward.
Well, my foot was resting on the power pedal, and I leaned a bit too much,
and pressed the pedal.
My finger was too close to the needle. And as a result.... was punctured!
Joe was coming up the stairs at the time that it occurred. I didn't want him to know that I had injured myself, yet again! I quickly went to remove my finger from needle, thinking it was just my finger nail that was caught. There was no pain, only shock! As I went to reverse the needle, I felt a tug, it was my finger that was stuck, not just my nail.
I told Joe, "Don't come in here!" He hates needles....and blood, though I didn't see any blood, I was sure that there would be some.
He came in my sewing room, to find me, crying, attached to the sewing machine!
He had to be the big man, and reverse the needle. I had to hold my attached hand down with my free hand, to keep it from moving with the needle!
I screamed, and cursed, but it was out in 1 second, and I ran to the sink to clean it!
The weird thing was, it only bled a few drops, it didn't even need a band-aid.
The lesson learned.... don't sew at 11pm! Tired equals accident!

Jan 14, 2010


  1. I can't eat a bowl of Rice Krispies without adding at least 1 tablespoon of sugar?
  2. My cat always gets into fights in the middle of the night, right outside MY bedroom window?
  3. No matter how clean the rest of my house is, MY room is always a disaster?
  4. I have such a terrible time falling asleep only on night when I HAVE to be up early the next day?
  5. Deaths and disasters happen in clumps- usually threes?
  6. My baby always seems to wake up right as I am falling asleep?
  7. On mornings when the kids are able to sleep in - they don't, but on mornings when they have to get up, I can't get them out of bed?
  8. Foods that taste the BEST are usually the WORST for you?
  9. A 45 minute nap can make a 2 year old happy but a 29 year old even more grumpy?
  10. I can NEVER say what I want to say, when I want to say it?

Temple Attendance and Acne

I hope that most of you have noticed that my acne is diminishing! I am thrilled that the new medication is working, and my confidence has improved so much! But good things can turn for the worse, if we let them.
Here's a little story about a lesson I learned recently.
The facts..... My face, no acne.....because I had been washing regularly with a powerful cleanser, morning and night.
The test...... my body, sooo tired.....because for the past two nights, kids have been getting up in the middle of the night, being sick with the flu. I thought I could just go to bed without washing. This occurred for 2 nights in a row. I wasn't worried, my face still looked great.
The lesson.....My acne, is still there. Without the constant nourishment from the soap, it came creeping back. It only took 2 days, but by the 3rd, I had 3 zits!
The GREATER lesson.
Washing my face is just like temple attendance, scripture study, prayer, and family home evening. When we do them, we feel wonderful, our families our happy, kids get along.
Peace is felt in abundance.
Then, we get tired, we let the world get in the way, we get busy, and we don't do the things we are supposed to do.
At first, we feel we are fine. Every one is still happy, we still feel love and we are getting along, most of the time!
Then, it happens. You are angry! You are screaming....all the time. You are depressed. You have sadness in the heart, and home.
You kneel to pray, and you know why this has happened. The best tools for happiness are those 4 things.....
When you do them you are happy! Everyone is happy.
Just like my acne, if we think all is well, we will be fooled. Our families will suffer, we will hurt. The best prevention of those miseries is to be PROACTIVE in our FAITH! Don't wait until you are in pain! Do what is right, keep it up....the Lord will bless you!
Happiness and Peace will prevail!

I am be-witched by you.
Your smile and your twinkling eye.
When first I saw your face.
When first your soft cheek brushed mine.
When first I felt your warmth.
Your tender kiss.
I am be-witched by you.
Your smell, so sweet and inviting,
When first your hand touched my face.
When first I dried your tears.
When first I heard your laugh.
Your voice.
I am be-witched by you.
Time will continue on.
We will change.
We will grow.
We will age.
I will hold this unchangeable truth.
I am be-witched by you.
For Katie.

I would like to welcome you to my new blog.
I will write when I feel the inspiration.
Why did I decide to start this blog?
A few days ago I felt inspired to write, I love to write, always have.
I love poetry in particular.
I felt that muse come to me.... but I wanted to share it as well.
I let the inspiration pass, BOO HOO! I didn't write. I didn't share! I felt sad.
I will listen and share from now on, and you will hopefully feel!
