A Warrior Sees the Positive Side of Life

A Warrior sees the positive side of life. "See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort." - Dalai Lama I have been working on staying positive for ten months or more - off and on for years really.  Even if all this effort I find that on some days I need to fight… Continue reading A Warrior Sees the Positive Side of Life


#bethelight – Day 85

We are down to 3 people living in our house.  Looking around, we have far too many things for only 5 people.  Today I decided to #bethelight, do a favor for people in need and give away things we no longer need and no longer wear.  So far I have filled 2 trash bags of… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 85


#bethelight – Day 84

Today I took my daughter to the airport.  She is going to serve a mission in Arkansas for the next 18 months.  This one is hard.  The one kid left at home is super sad... cried and cried.  We can email her and snail mail her but we can't call her.  We will get to… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 84

Family Friday

In Honor of Grandma

For Family Friday this week I choose to remember my grandma, Clara Lee White.  She died on Friday, a couple weeks shy of her 92 birthday.  She was the youngest child of Joseph Sharp Packer and Jesse Anderson.

#bethelight – Day 83

Wow!  What a long day... work... more work... helping Hannah get ready for a mission.  She leaves tomorrow morning, bright and early.  I just didn't get time to blog. Today for my act of kindness I made dinner.  Really.  I was so tired.  I didn't feel like making dinner, but I did.  Not only that,… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 83

#bethelight – Day 81

Today I am thinking that an act of kindness is reminisce. Yesterday my last living grandparent died.  My grandma, Clara Lee Packer White, died a few weeks shy of her 92 birthday.  I drove over to my parents house and listened as everyone told stories about her and her life.  I think that passing those… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 81


#bethelight – Day 80

Today I am going to make a point of smiling at everyone I come in contact with today.  Something so simple can mean an awful lot. I found this video today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufQpgYSDRdU I think it's true.  One act of kindness will spread.  Let's spread the light! Join Me! #bethelight

A Warrior stays positive! Negative things happen all the time... to everyone.  However, we do not need to allow the negative situations to effect our lives and our attitudes.  You can remain positive in the midst of tragedy.
