Just some memories...

 I decided to add some pictures and they are kind of random but if you want to add some comments of what you remember about these pictures that would be great.
I don't have any memories of this one but I have always loved it because I can see this cute little girl in some of my girls and grand daughters.
Of course, I don't remember this one either but I sure see a lot of family resemblances.

Nope, I wasn't here for this one either but I do know a couple of people in this picture. One of my favorite aunts and of course my lovely Mom! ( Aunt Colleen is on the far left as a bridesmaid.)

I am here for this one but don't remember much about it. So, how about the rest of you that are in this pic, do you remember anything about it?

Isn't she beautiful! Mom, in high school, no wonder Dad fell for her.

I kind of remember this one and I especially remember the purple Easter dress. I loved wearing it and twirling around in it to make the skirt go up. I remember Grandpa Marriott always getting us out on the lawn to take our pictures. I loved that he took the time to take these because the memories are so precious!

I remember this one because I have a new baby brother and remember that he was quite big! I remember that chair and being rocked in it when I didn't feel well, or listening to a story that Mom was telling me or reading to me. I remember the doily on the back of the chair and Mom continually fixing it so that it was straight. I remember the curtains and playing in them, I think you can see some of my fingerprints and wrinkles that I made from doing that!

No, I wasn't here for this one either but i do remember the temple on the top of the cake and seeing it in our home and playing with it as well. Luckily I didn't break that great treasure.  I am so glad though that these two found each other and have made a great posterity and I am so blessed to be a part of it.
Have a great week Mom and remember that we all love you!
What do you remember about these pictures?

I hope that as I add things to this blog it will help. I know that we as a family are strong and mom and dad have always been strong. So no matter what happens we will be alright because we have the faith and the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. I love you Mom and Dad. LIVE STRONG!!! STAY STRONG!!!

26 FEB 2011
We have the greatest grandchildren! It must be because they have exceptional parents. Thanks for the comments and your love and prayers. The PET scan is set up for next thursday at noon. Don jokes that I will be nuked. I have an appointment on the 15th of March with Dr. Hansen, the Oncologist. So, it is a process of going through tests and more tests, but it will give us some direction of what to do. We hope all of you are getting unburied from the snow. Love you!

Just checking in to make sure it works. How about the snow? Have a great day Mom & Dad

When Storms Arise

When storms arise
And dark'nin skies
About me threat'ning lower,
To thee, O Lord, I raise mine eyes,
To thee my tortured spirit flies
For solace in that hour.

The mighty arm
Will let no harm
Come near me nor befall me;
Thy voice shall quiet my alarm,
When life's great battle waxeth warm-
No foeman shall appall me.

Upon thy breast
Secure I rest,
From sorry and vexation;
No more by sinful care oppressed,
But in thy presence ever blest,
O God of my salvation.

-Paul Laurence Dunbar

I ran across this lovely poem and thought the title appropriate and sincere. I thought I should share.


Better News

Dr. Biddulph called at 8:00 a.m. today and said that the tests from the CT scans are encouringing. No other large abnormalities could be seen in the brain, chest, abdomen . This is good news ! He is setting up a PET Scan, probably for next week. Because it doesn't look as bad as we thought yesterday, I will be going to an Oncologist here in Ogden, Dr. Vince Hansen. After he sees the results of all the other tests he will do a bone marrow biopsy and the follow Up. All of your prayers are alreaady helping. Love you!

Don, Lynette, and I went to Dr. Biddulph's office today to get the biopsy report. I have non-hodgkins Lymphoma. There are 18 different kinds of this. I had blood tests and a full cat scan done this morning. The results will tell where it is located in my body. Dr. Biddulph is going to set up an appointmetn next week with a Hematologist and an Oncologist. It will be in Salt Lake, probably at L.D.S Hospital. They will do more tests and determine where to go from there. I liked what Dr. Biddulph said that when we signed on to come to earth, we agreed to accept what comes in our lives. We will keep you posted as we know more. I love you all and so appreciate all your support.
