Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with your blessings? This is how I have been feeling lately. It seems as if the planets are in perfect alignment over our house and I don't want to do anything to upset the balance of the cosmos! Our three adult children are all amazing. We have a son in law whom we just love. They all have a desire to be obedient to their earthly parents (can you believe that means me?) and to their Heavenly Father, they are all making righteous decisions and we couldn't be happier. That in and of itself is a tremendous blessing, but lately I have been feeling so grateful for where we live.
We are living in the best kept secret in Southern California. Our house stands at 6000 feet amidst tall pines. Here is a picture of our house in the winter and a picture of our house in the summer. We get snow every winter which I know sounds so strange for So Cal.
We also have our very own chapel that we don't have to share with another ward! I know, I know....everyone altogether now with one big....Awwwwwww.... We have our own stage, satellite dish and baptismal font. The time for Sacrament never changes. It's been 9:30am for the 18 years that we have lived here. Here's also a picture of the road from our house to the chapel.
I also really enjoy the wildlife that can be found in our area. Here's a list of animals that our family has actually seen with our two eyes: Rattlesnakes, bats, owls, blue jays, squirrels, raccoons, foxes, roadrunners, bobcats, coyote, red tail hawks, deer, bear and bighorn sheep! We have mountain lions, but we haven't met one in person, hubby has just seen tracks.
There are only 3000 full time residents in our little community and it has been such a wonderful place to raise a family. I am so grateful for all of the wildlife and nature that our Heavenly Father has created for us to enjoy. I certainly do!!
Now I have also gotten tagged again!! Maybe I shouldn't have enjoyed it so much the first time!! lol
