Why She Still Said Yes. It reminded me how nervous I was after DH and I became engaged to be married over thirty years ago. Were we really making the right decision? But, I had prayed about my decision to answer yes, and I knew it was good and right. I'm not perfect, and DH is not perfect, but we both knew that getting married to each other was good and the right thing to do. So we did. Even though I didn't say yes the first time he asked, and he had to wait, and date other ladies, and look some more, and then ask me again a couple of years later. (I had already committed myself to serving an 18 month mission for my church, and wanted to fulfill that committment before I married.) Wasn't that nice of him to still be there 18 months later and to ask again??? I think so. :)
So, Happy Valentines Day to my favorite Valentine! I love you DH! ♥♥♥

I do know some great leaders, both men and women, right here in my community. I have some wonderful neighbors and wonderful leaders of our church congregations that I know quite well. We have some local school administrators who work tirelessly for the good of the education of our children and young people. I personally know our local City Council Representative, and I respect and admire him. I know he does his best to represent our neighborhood and make the best decisions he can for our city and community.
I don't personally know any other community, state, or national political leaders. I trust that many, hopefully most of them, truly believe that that are trying to do the best they can for our communities, our state, and our nation. I'm grateful for the time and effort they put forth in serving the people of our land. I don't know them, and often feel I have very little input into how our nation is run, but I do try to be aware of what is going on in our community and our country, and I do take the privilege of voting very seriously. I also pray for the leaders of our community and our country. I pray that they can all be great leaders, leaders like Moroni.
