I am posting this song in every place I have available to me: It is a Life Song. I have a handful that fall in that particular category, but this one sums it up as well as any. Blessings, fellow traveler and friend in Christ. May we sing this together as we go along the way.

I Just Have To

Every now and then I'm blessed with a more up close and personal glimpse of my children: their loves, desires, and their dreams. Welcome to my house, and the end of another day.

I open daughter's sketch book to find drawings, her efforts at writing in Arabic (to the best of her memory), and my favorite: her and her brother's future plans. Daniel has scrapped his plans to be an astronaut in order that he can become a carpenter and help his sister build their own farm houses.So here goes, her spelling and all.

What would we like to be:

Bethany. Meninite farmer.
Daniel. Mininite farmer and Carpender.

Where would we like to live:

Bethany. Wyoming
Daniel. Wyoming
Wish List:

Electric stove and oven.
Donkeys and mules.
A Camel.
Guiny Pigs
Water basin.
Big wooden tub.
99 acres of land.
Little wooden tub.
A barn.
Two log houses
A hunting licence.
Wooden fences.
Fishing licence.
Chicken coop.
A nice lake
Two under ground pools.
2 bikes.
A carpender shop.
Thick woods.
A garden.
2 farms.
A pine tree place.
12 adopted children (This one is my favorite.)
A T.V.-no cable.
A Telaphone.
I wouldn't change this list for anything. I wouldn't edit the spelling for anything. And I wouldn't trade my Heavenly Father's calling as Mother and Mentor for anything in the world.
