"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Story Time!

we just started going to story time at the city library. They meet every thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the library in downtown Riverside. It lasts about an hour and they read stories, sing songs and play with toys. There are alot of moms and dads that bring their little kids. I work for my father in laws business running his BIG embroidery machines but only when there is work for me to do. it's been a little slow latley and I've only been working about once a week if I'm lucky. So being at home all day we just want to GET OUT sometimes. We also have park days every Friday and moms from my ward that are home meet there. We haven't been for a while cause it's been cold. The kids have a lot of fun. and it givesme a little adult conversation!
