You should feel loved today, because you are loved. We love you!

The sun was shining for a few minutes this morning as the kids were getting ready for school, and it was so cheery and beautiful. The sun is now hiding behind the clouds, and the cheeriness I felt because of those beautiful rays is hiding with it.

I guess I need to step outside to see the daffodils that are blooming and the weeping cherry tree that is trying hard to bloom, and will soon be in full bloom. There are many other things that I could do, which include counting my many blessings.

This "gloominess" sometimes overshadows me too much and I wish I could do something to help spring get here. I wonder if others may be feeling the same way.
Maybe a welcoming party would be helpful - not in getting spring here, but in cheering up our hearts as we anxiously await it's arrival. I, Elaine, need it desperately, hense, the reason for the blog color changes. And the reason for the title of todays blog - it always helps us when we let someone know that we love them, it just makes us feel good, so I want you to know that I love you! If you are viewing this blog it is surely because you have an interest in our family and I love you for that and thank you for all you do to bless our lives.

Happy spring-ing! as we count our many blessings and name them one by one.

PS. Wasn't general conference wonderful, again! What a joy it is to watch and listen to our leaders, especially our living prophet. I delight in the words of our leaders as they present their messages with unconditional love and with the intent to bless our lives. (And indeed they do!)

Thanks for the reminder to look on the bright side of everything. We are so blessed that it shouldn't be that hard, but time and time again I find myself focusing on the negative. So what if my house isn't always clean and the laundry goes unattended because Brayden has emptied every single cupboard in my kitchen. I have a wonderful family that I love more than I can express (in-laws included) ;) I hope you have a GREAT day!
