I think that men with accents are the sexiest guys out there. If they can speak another language that makes it even better.
I think that children are amazing. They can endure so much and understand so much! This is especially in 2009.

In ten minutes, it is amazing what a beautiful girl will tell her mom.
1) Mom you are skinny. I like it when you wear shirts like that, I can give you a hug and feel your flat stomach.
2) Mom, set my alarm for 5:00am in the morning so that I can come and lay down with you for some huggie time before getting up in the morning.
3) She did not tell me this but acted it out. We have family prayer each night and it is usually in her bed with me kneeling next to the bed and Sydney kneeling in her bed. Tonight, she asked for her Raggedy Anne (RA) doll before prayer that she had left in my room. When I returned and was getting ready for prayer, she started doing something with RA. What are you doing with her, I asked. Sydney responded, she is kneeling for prayer. (How sweet and cool is that.)

Remember! Lost time can never be found.
Do it NOW!
A friend, Connie Rudd, sent me a sweet email about staying young and from the email I found these two phrases very powerful.
Tears do happen... Wow that is so true. So many people have something happen to them and they continue to live in the past and don't move on which hurts them in the end. By dwelling in the past we can't move forward. This phrase is so true. We need to enjoy our life and learn from our experiences. If it was wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth it. Is a phrase that I have heard for years. Plus we can't take back time, it is always going by. It is our responsibility to fill our lives with importance. On my blog, I have the following inspirational thought:

Sincere fasting be one way to “empty” ourselves of unrighteousness so we can be filled with the Holy Ghost
1.They read and mark Alma 22:15 together. It says:And it came to pass that after Aaron had expounded these things unto him, the king said: What shall I do that I may have this eternal life of which thou hast spoken? Yea, what shall I do that I may be born of God, having this wicked spirit crooted out of my breast, and receive his Spirit, that I may be filled with joy, that I may not be cast off at the last day? Behold, said he, I will give up all that I possess, yea, I will forsake my kingdom, that I may receive this great joy.
Explained that this verse contains the words of a king who repented for rebelling against the Lord. The king offered to give up his kingdom and all his possessions in order to receive the Spirit of God (the Holy Ghost).
Just as the pink balls needed to come out of the bowl before the bowl could be filled with white ball, the wickedness in the king needed to leave before the king could be filled with the Holy Ghost.
2.How can sincere fasting be one way to "empty" ourselves of unrighteousness so we can be filled with the Holy Ghost?
Even though our stomachs are empty when we fast, we can be filled with the Holy Ghost. Being hungry for food when we fast is not wrong, especially if it reminds us to “hunger and thirst after righteousness, [so we can] be filled with the Holy Ghost?(3 Nephi 12:6 - And blessed are all they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost.)
--From - Lesson 10: Fasting--Hungry or Full, Preparing for Exaltation: Teacher's Manual--
“It is our understanding of the principle of love that encourages us to give generously to the fast offerings, a wonderful, revealed system in which on the first Sunday of each month, we voluntarily refrain from eating two meals and contribute the cost of those meals to our bishop. He then has the resources to help him help those in need. The system is mostly painless, and it raises our appreciation for those who are without and provides a means to satisfy their daily requirements. May the Lord continue to bless us with the desire to love one another and give generously based on the principle of the fast.” Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Building a Community of Saints,” Ensign, May 2001, 36.
BTW... We did watch the last part of the game. Heart wrenching...
