Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I actually would rather write a personal letter to each of you but it’s not going to happen. So I am going to try to put an update to all on what has happened through 2009 for my family.
-In the beginning of the year- I had Jason, Jessica and their son Cody living in my basement along with Esther, Sarah, Naomi and of course me J Joshua had moved out the end of 2007. Josh was living in an apt. not too far from us.
-On April 12th – Josh married Amber Hunt in the SLC Temple.
-In May- Esther graduated from Ben Lomond High School.
-In June we took the girls on a trip to Zions canyon. Josh and Amber came along on this trip with us. We stopped in Manti for a night and watched the Manti pageant. Yes we camped out on this trip of ours J. After Manti we went to St. George and visited with Rachael (who has been living in St. George attending Dixie college). We camped at Zions for couple nights enjoying the outdoors.
-Esther moved to St. George to join Rachael and attend Dixie college. About the same time that -Esther moved out. My brother Mike and his family of 8, moved in my home while they looked for a place of their own.
-September- Jason and Jessica bought a home in Riverdale and moved out…… just in the nick of time sense Jessica is due to have a baby in Oct. J
-August- Laura and her family moved to Utah. Korey’s job has given him a position that will keep them in Utah. They have sense bought a home in West Point.
-October- Jessica had a baby boy (Cayden) He is adorable and they are all doing very well. That makes two grandsons from Jason and Jessica. J
-Mike and his family also moved out in October. They are now living in Clinton. Now for the first time ever…. My household is simply Sarah, Naomi and I. J
-Thanksgiving was quiet at our house. Hannah and her family came by other wise it was two girls and I.
-On Dec. 1st…. I had Carbal tunnel surgery on both my hands. I have the greatest doctor and my hands are doing great. I have to take two weeks away from working at Walmart but that is all.
-On Dec. 8th – Hannah had a baby. J Little Conner is doing great. Conner is my 9th grandchild. I now have 2 grand-daughters and 7 grandsons!
------- We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!!!! Judy, Sarah and Naomi
Ps. Esther is moving back here to Ogden to be near family.

I know time flies.
One minute I have plenty -
Then it seems to be gone.
Oh my where does time fly?
It never does come back-
Time is so valuable-
yet we often sit around-
And watch as it flies away.
But where does time fly?
Sometimes I feel it is ok-
To rest and watch time fly.
But if only I could call it back.
To gain a few minutes in my day.
Oh where does time fly?????

I recieved this in an email and thought I would share it with all who take a peek at my blog :)
READ THIS LET IT REALLY SINK IN - THEN CHOOSE .
John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!"
He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?"
He replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or ... you can choose to be in a bad mood I choose to be in a good mood."
Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or...I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or... I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.
"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested. "Yes, it is," he said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live your life."
I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.
I saw him about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins...Wanna see my scars?"
I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place. "The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter," he replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or...I could choose to die. I chose to live."
"Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked He continued, "..the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'he's a dead man'.
I knew I needed to take action." "What did you do?" I asked. "Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me," said John. "She asked if I was allergic to anything 'Yes, I replied.' The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Gravity'." Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead."
He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude... I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34. After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
