Ashley's Baptism

Our most beautiful baby girl was baptized by her father today.

Ashley was excited and the service was lovely. I was asked to stand and talk about Ashley for a few minutes. It wasn't difficult, I could talk about my baby angel for a very long time. I kept it as short as I could.

Here's Lance, Ashley and my father.

We came back to our home after the service for some snacks and apple crisp and ice ceam.

  1. Even though I'm a low-life agnostic, congratulations!

  2. There is nothing low-life about you, m'dear. Not a thing.

    Thanks for the congratulations. She's our last, and we baptize our children at the age of eight, when they can make the decision to do so and know right from wrong. Ashley is a bright spot in our lives and I've learned so much by having her as my daughter these past eight years.

  5. Hi Lisa, welcome to my blog. I was born and raised in Seattle.

    Anna, thanks. It was a very sweet moment for her and for us. She was given a little faux diamond tiara as a gift yesterday, and she wore it to church this morning. I wish I'd gotten a picture of her. A true Princess.

  7. Yes, we baptize by immersion, just as Christ was baptized.

    And you're not a crappy anything, m'dear.

    Jamie wore the same style of dress when she was baptized. They do look like angels. Two White dresses down, two more left to go. (Wedding gown and temple dress)

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always...

I rely on the kindness of strangers...

Or not so much strangers as readers of my miserable blog.

I received a beautiful card in the mail from my long-tine reader (perhaps my ONLY reader) that lifted my heart. Thank you, G. Parkes. It was kind of you to think of me. Seriously---you are so sweet. Thank you.

Perhaps we can meet in person one day. I'll be in Utah after Conference. We'll see how it goes.

I've been caring for my autistic grandson since July. It seems longer sometimes---and that's not a complaint. I adore this little man. He holds my heart. He fills my arms and my heart in the way that my own small babies used to do. When mine reached the age where they didn't want to be in my arms any longer, I felt their absence. Their absence from my arms was heavier than actually having them in my arms. It was an ache that is difficult to describe, a phantom pain where something once was but now is no longer.

I'm Sick. And the election isn't helping.

I spoke too soon about feeling better. My grandson was delightful enough to share his virus with me, so I've spent the past five days losing everything from both ends. It hasn't been pretty.

As a weight loss program though...

At least one end of me has stopped spewing. Now I wait for the other end to stop pretending to be filled with hot lava and erupting without much notice. Sorry, this is what is called over-sharing. Apparently I'm very good at it. You're welcome.

Last night I walked around the block with hubby and our adorable puppy. It was the first time I've been out of the house in five days. It was lovely, even though I was very shaky. Today I actually tried to accomplish something. I sat at my jewelry table, moved my seaglass around. Picked up pieces and played them through my hands. Such beautfy that came from something considered useless garbage and tossed away. I love my sea glass. It gives me the happies.

I also had a severe case of J…
