Anniversaries...1 and 25

1 & 25...

I knew I was getting close to my one-year anniversary of my blog so yesterday I checked. I was so glad I didn't miss it. I can't believe that I've written every day for 365 days on this blog. Sometimes it was difficult to think of things to write about, other days--a piece of cake (hmmm, cake...). I've written about my family, our pets, food, church, cars, deer, and a bonsai man. It's been quite a ride.

Tonight as I downloaded pictures to include for tonight's blog post (because, seriously, what's a blog post without pictures...?), I got a message from a dear, dear friend. She reminded me that it was 25 years ago this very day that we returned together from our LDS mission to Denmark, Sister Magnusson, Sister Barlow, Elder Ellis, The Jespersens and myself. I had meant to check because I knew that anniversary was coming up, but it kept slipping my mind. I was so glad she reminded me that today was the day. Thank you Ann Magnusson Turner!

AELDSTE!!!!!!!! It's been 25 years since that fateful day when we missed our flights from JFK, took a harrowing taxi ride across New York City and got our meal vouchers for dinner and thought we were rich! And they didn't have rootbeer! Great memories! Til lykke med dagen min ven! :)

So, on this day, a day of two anniversaries, I'm thinking about the last year and days a quarter of a century passed. I started the blog because I needed to write and write daily. I need that creative outlet. Even if no one read this, I need to do it. The time I spend on my mission was twice as long as I've spent writing a daily blog. I needed the mission for things eternally more important. I've never regretted these two decisions and I hope, if you're reading this, that my decisions have somehow--in some large or small way--made your day just a little bit better. Take care and God Bless.

  1. I've read most all of your blogs (I did go back to read the one about the new, rescued cat) and enjoyed all of them. Keep blogging! I look each morning to see your latest thoughts. Carol
