Words to Live By

 Sparrow on a frosty branch

"I have now lived long enough to know that, whatever our situation, our troubles melt and disappear like frost in the morning sun when we dwell upon our blessings rather than our disappointments.

No matter how pessimistic one's view may become of the times and the seasons, we can always fall back on special friendship, on faithful, personal love, and on simple, true dealings in our own personal lives."

                                                                                                            -- James E. Faust

I love that, so captures the theme of life right now. But it is finally February and so I more optomistic that things will improve for everyone.

I was wondering if you could tell me what line of work your husband is in? The reason I ask is my husband is in sales and he talks to alot of people on a daily basis and if he heard of an opportunity to find a job, it might help. E-mail me ( if you want to, it was just a thought.....but I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
