Virtue

"There's not half the virtue in being happy when surrounded by luxuries, as when deprived of them."

Mother's Day

My own mother passed three years ago; lilacs were among her most favorite flowers.


The house in the background belongs to our neighbors, our little house is to the right, see the shadow?

Our traditional Mother's Day portrait:

Here's the portrait from 2009 for comparison. Different lilac bush, this one in Utah. My mother loved pictures in front of lilacs!

Check out what I've been doing on my other blog

I haven't posted for too long. But if you'll go to my other blog, PFCMom, you can see some of what I've been up to.

I was released as Relief Society President in March, then spent my time getting ready for both General Conference and my epic trip to Asia. I spent two fabulous weeks in Japan and Korea. Now back home I'm preparing for the graduation of Mr. Movie from high school by painting the Living Room so it will be ready for his party on May 15. HELP! (I should have girded up my loins, fresh courage taken when the room was empty, way back when, but I dislike painting and so procrastinated and now am having to do it with a roomful of furniture in the way.)

I think life will be back to normal (whatever that is) soon and I can post some of what's been on my mind about lots of different things. In the meantime, enjoy PFCMom.
