i guess i'm going to have to get off my heiney ....

and post ...

i really did love posting on my blog, but, whowuddaguessed i became so lax (what a paltry word when, probably, slack/lazy/procrastinator would tell it like it is) ... it is embarrassing to even begin again ... however, getting in touch with my sordid and varied past, people i knew in vanderhoof, makes it easier to start!

finding a response from summer and taking note of koe's on rose's blog (wow, girl! posting again!), brought back so many memories of our life in the 'hoof! we loved living there and sometimes i think *what if ........ * however i can't go much further than that or it will negate the present and the present is good! i love my husband, david (i wish you all could meet him), my children are great and .... well, my grandchildren:  precious; darling; cute; smart, nay, brilliant; cute; did i say precious??? ... you get the picture! i will post images or links to substantiate these claims soon!

life is good ... i am so thankful for all my many blessings: good health, not just my good health, but the excellent health of my husband, children and ALL the darling grandchildren; mine and their testimonies, my families, especially my darling granddaughter’s, tevia, and sweet grandson, aaron's; our physical and spiritual strength; happiness; great satisfaction with my *semi-normal* (whatever THAT means) life; and all the good that is here to experience ... i'm even thankful for all the trials we have had, and will have, that bring us closer to heavenly father.

Hello there! It has been way too long. I am so glad you found me! I will definately let my parents know how you are doing! We are all well. Most of us married, most live in Vanderhoof - except me :( But we are healthy and happy and cannot complain. All the kids have blogs and we keep up that way. Let me know if you want addresses. kkgmccoy@gmail Hope all is well. Dad works at the Seattle temple and is there with Gerald and Maureen monthly, I'm sure they would love to see you!
