i needed a new blog background. black was seeming too heavy... and these trees are blooming everywhere around provo, they are so my favorite. even though the white ones don't smell that good, it's so so soooo pretty when the wind blows and it 'snows' tree fluff.
i've been watching some of the 'mormon messages' on youtube, they are pretty great. i love this little story president hinckley tells, and i LOVE love elder holland's message about... love and how we treat those we claim to love, those we spend our time with, etc.
how do you see love around you? my sweet grandparents were married 54 years before they passed away. my grandma always made dinner for her husband (and all her kids and us grandkids who were always around ... she made the best spaghetti) and would bring him dessert out to him on his chair in the living room (what a magical chair! so off limits). when she started getting weaker, he took over cooking and doing the dishes. and when things switched, she insisted on pushing him around in his wheelchair (still not sure how she did that). being around them together during some of his last days in this life is one of the most sacred memories i have. i want what they had.
