Better Life Fix the Car Song...

Friday we had to take the car in for a little check up (meaning the novelty of the clunking grating sound in the back when we turned was wearing off) and on the way back we heard this song.  I was loving it. We rolled down the windows and I told G that it was our song of the day (I always like to have a theme song for anytime we go anywhere or do anything, it makes every event much more official, especially thrilling things like getting the car fixed).  I told G that Colorado was going to be a better life and he said that our life depended on what we do not where we go (of course he said something like that) but agreed that maybe we could change the lyrics to a "better place"since he's super excited about Colorado too. 
I love moments like that where you feel like you just get infused with a bolus of hope in your blood and you just know and feel like your life is so ridiculously blessed and that things are going to get even better.
 "Daily hope is vital, since the "Winter Quarters" of our lives are not immediately adjacent to our promised land... Those with true hope often see their personal circumstances shaken, like kaleidoscopes, again and again. Yet with the "eye of faith," they still see divine pattern and purpose."
--Neal A. Maxwell, "Brightness of Hope", Ensign, Nov. 1994


  1. OH YOU GOOD WOMAN! You just made my day. I'm so excited to have found a source for an occasional "Chels" fix. Wish you were next door too- I need a party every day and a theme song for every car ride. I bet you are the BEST mom! Here is our family blog: http://dougandlydstew.blogspot.com/

  2. Only a nurse would say "bolus of hope"-- that's awesome. Good luck with the move! I'm excited for you!!!
