I vividly remember going to my elementary school library on a weekly basis as a child. I loved checking out the books by the author Beverly Cleary.  They were delightful to read. One of her most well known characters was Ramona Quimby. . . Our little girl Louise reminds me so much of what i envisioned Ramona to be like so i sometimes call her "Ramona" just for fun. She looks at me with a teasing smile and says "my not 'mamona, my wheezy, call me wheezy"  I love our little, endearing Wheezy!

"We need to read and study the scriptures and pray every day.  Without these two essential practices outside influences can dim or even extinguish your light.  When you are a light to the world people around you will feel a special spirit that will make them want to associate with you and follow your example." 
-President Thomas S. Monson

Life is a tapestry: We are the warp; angels, the weft; God, the weaver. Only the Weaver sees the whole design. ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
When i read this little quote i had to look up what "warp" and "weft" meant:) What a neat imagery.  The other day Lizzy put a circular hair elastic on top of my head and said "you look like an angel because angels have circles above their heads" i told her they were called halos.  She said "yah, halos. that's right. Angels have them. So who was the first angel?" she asked.  I love getting glimpses of what these little ones think and wonder about!
