Some of the Blessings We Cherish Here

Today was kind of  a down day for me.  I didn't sleep well last night and the change in the weather has brought on a few additional aches and pains.  We did go down and vote this morning.  We decided to take advantage of the opportunity for early voting this year and avoid the crowds on election day when our time is going to be pressing as it is.  I am always grateful for the opportunity to vote and thus be a part in the great constitutional system we have been blessed with in this country.  This year the urgency and need to vote seemed even more pronounced than it has done in the past.  We have a great country which provides us with abundant blessing for which we should be ever grateful.  I spent part of the day working on family history and a good while trying to catch up on my rest.  Finally the clouds began to lift some and I decided to go out and see if I could find something to take a picture of.  Living where we do I am able to see the Logan Temple in so many different lights and moods.  I ended up at the parking lot across the street from the lower USU campus.  There is a good view of the temple from there.  The leaves have changed colors for the most part and were able to withstand the snowfall of the past few days, at least for now. The sun was beginning to set in the west over the Wellsvilles and this is how it looked.  The Logan Temple is always beautiful to me.  We are blessed that it has become such a great part of our lives as we have gotten older.

We hope everyone has studied the issues, and candidates and will vote for those who stand closest to what is best for the nation and a peaceful world.

Sorry you have had a bad few days. I hope you are okay. I love and worry about you. You are in my prayers. I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated. It was good to see you and mom the other night at the concert. I really enjoyed it and I loved that it was Ammon's idea to attend. We were going to see if you would want to go get a bite after, but the concert went later than we thought, so we went home.

Voting~ can't wait. I have never wanting a certain candidate to win so badly. It will be a great day if the "better" man wins.

Hope you are feelin better. I too voted the other day- it makes me feel empowered.

Thanks for the photo- I do miss those color changes- we get a few trees changing in about November- but not enough.:)

Take care!

Beautiful photo of the temple. I agree with Alison and Megan, love you and know your in our prayers and I feel empowered when I vote! In fact, I forgot to tell you my claim to fame on the political front. Be sure to ask me. It's a wild story!

Love you,
