"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

I'm Such a Cry Baby

At night before the kids all go to bed I sit in the family room and read to them. In the course of a couple years we have read the entire Harry Potter series, Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, the Little House on the Prairie series to name a few.

Well, last night I read the final four chapters of Anne of Green Gables. This turned out to be quite the ordeal for me. Since I had read these books a number of times to myself I knew precisely what was happening next. As I read the last two chapters tears were flowing down my cheeks as I tried in vain to read without choking on nearly every word.

"Mom, are you alright?", my daughter inquired.

"Ya, I just just love this story," I replied intermittenly through sobs.

When it comes to a good story, bring on the bucket. There's gonna be a flood!

The New Paperclip

As anyone who knows me can attest, I have a thing about paperclips. I like to wear them as earrings. The colored plastic-coated kind have been my favorites. They are the reason for the name of my site and blog.

So, today, while at the grocery store, in the school/ office supply isle, I see something that catches my eye. The box says they are paperclips. But these things do not look at all like a paperclip. I just have to see how these things work. So, I buy them, bring them home and later that day I have a new pair of earrings dangling from my lobes.

Oh ya, and I figured out how they connect two pieces of paper together.
