The title is "A Common Thread"

I absolutely LOVE this organization (and not just because they published me :)

It has enriched my life greatly.

Big smile on my face today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I just finished reading "The Mother In Me, Real World Reflections on Growing into Motherhood" created by the staff of the literary journal, Segullah and published in 2008 by Deseret Book. Very heart-felt, and encouraging.

...My purpose for having become more active in PTA this year. Ta Da!

I improved a little corner of the world.

To view the horrendous BEFORE picture, and read the rest of the story, see my post from Sat. Feb. 27, 2010 entitled "Please Return." (that would be awesome if I knew how to link the two)

Last week Nathan and I were in the BYU Wilk. to see the presentation of a "check" from PTA to Governer Gary Herbert. The worth of the total reported volunteer hours from parents around the state was over 32 million dollars. Woo Hoo for all who are doing their part- especially in classrooms- around the state!!!
