Long time since I have blogged. Facebook takes over. We are at the cabin. It is very nice up here. Can you say relaxing? On the way up I got some sad news. The teacher my girls had for dance had a brain anurism. (don't know if I spelled that right) They caught it and did surgery. I hope she is doing great and recovers fully. She is such a wonderful person. The recital is next week and she wants it to still go on. She is amazing. My prayers are with her. So far this year hasn't been very good for me. I have been trying to keep this up but it seems like I keep getting dragged back down. Satan keeps trying. I have so many blessings.

The boys went to New York to watch a couple of the Yankees games. Joe took them for their birthdays. It was nice and quiet here for a couple days. What did I do? I cleaned the carpets--woohoo! They did not like the filthy dirty subways. They were not impressed with New York in any way shape or form as far as they told me. I wasn't either and I wasn't there very long when I went. I didn't think I would sleep very well with Joe gone because usually I don't but surprisingly enough I slept pretty well. Setting the alarm every night probably helped.

I can't believe Tim will be home in 82 days. I hope his head wound doesn't get infected. Why does he always hit his head?

I can't believe it has been so long since I have blogged. WOW What a busy summer. One more trip to go so far. We have our annual trip to the cabin this weekend. I hope all my kids except Tim of course will be there. I also can't believe that Tim only has a few weeks left wow how tiime flies. Somethimes I feel I don't have control any more but did I ever? I babysat my grandkids this weekend it was fun. I did have lots of help with the 3 girls here to do things for them. Life is short and full of lots of events.

Can you believe this

THOMAS: ... Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something - I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above - above the world, he's sort of God. He's-
THOMAS: He's going to bring all different sides together.

Good grief! Isn't that something. Comparing Obama to God! How ludicrous is that? What kind of God fearing people have we become? I could not believe this and to think that people still worship this anti-Christ! Yes, I believe he is an anti-Christ, maybe not the anti-Christ but one. To think that someone would rather meet him than President Monsen is just beyond my comprehension. I can't even talk anymore. I am flabberghasted.

tims letter

I got this letter from Tim this morning. He is doing so well. He is on his 4th Island and said he will probably stay there til the end. Mindelo is on that Island and I have heard of that city. I love what missions to for our children and for others children.

I received a letter from a member that lives is Fogo and is now a mini missionary. Let me translate what he wrote to me word for word.

His name is Jony and he said "Elder Wyson, how is the mission going over there? Here everyone asks about you. They say "where is that funny elder?". It is with much pride that I am writing you to thank you for the help you gave me when you were here with Elder Cruzinho and Elder Nascimento. Principaly you gave me lots of strength and encouragment to prepare my mission papers, your advice strengthened my testimony. I remember when you told me that I was only being tested because my mission papers were taking a long time to finish. You are a really cool, relaxed and way loving with people. Now, I want to give you some advice. Don't worry about what people say about you. You are valiant for the cause of Christ. Your are a server chosen to teach his words. Then he left the scripture 3 Nephi 5:13."

And that is what he said. You guys can take it for how you want but I have my own way of taking it and that man has a special place in my heart. I don't always see my success as I have said before. No maybe I am not AP or ZL, but you know what they don't get to teach as much as I do. So maybe that is why I haven't be called to those positions because my mouth, my teachings ,and my attitude with people helps bring people to the gospel and to Jesus Christ better than the next. I really don't care about those positions. I know is that I love the Savior more than anyone in the world because through him I can love someone. This church is true. I love being a missionary. I am not saying I don't get trunky and think about home sometimes, but it passes and I keep working. That is life as a missionary I love this work and the other stuff can wait until later. I love you all

Tim got a letter this day. This is a picture a Lady missionary put on her blog about mail day.

I love this one

Bringing America Together. The election is over. It is time to repair friendships with the other party. Governor Sarah Palin is doing her part to do just that.The rest of the world cannot understand how, after bitter election campaigns, American politicians can kiss and make-up.For instance, Gov. Palin has invited, to her great state of Alaska, the men who defeated her, Barack Obama and Joe Biden. She has set up a moose hunting trip for their enjoyment and hired three prominent experts in their field to assist them.Dick Cheney will lead them on the hunt, Ted Kennedy will drive them back to their cabins each evening, and Bill Clinton will entertain their wives and daughters.What a lady! That Sarah is such a sport and thinks and thinks of everything!
