Don had his 78th birthday on Friday. I am so grateful to have another year with him.Thanks to the girls, we had cake and ice cream. Thank you all. Yesterday, he baptized Kevin Don Hogge in the Spanish Ward. There was a very special spirit there. Afterwards, we all went to a beautiful park and had lots of eats. Well, I am half way through my treatments and each time brings some new challenges, but if it works that is all that counts. Sometimes, I wake up and think that maybe this is all a dream, but I know that Heavenly Father is with me and helps me daily along with all of your prayers. These next few weeks will be filled with the excitement of the two weddings coming up. They have let me postpone my next treatment until June 6th so I can be at Karli's wedding. It will be so good to see all of you again. Today is Sunday and I have been going to just Sacrament meeting because there are fewer people right around us there. We sit on the side, second row. I keep up with all of your blogs. They are so good and keep us up on whats going on in your lives. Thank you for the special effort that must take. We love you all and thank you for your heartfelt comments. Love, Margo

It was a great weekend! It started with Donene coming to visit Fiday morning. As you can see she took a picture of us and she made me " Queen Mom" with her enbroidered tea towels. It was a great visit. On Saturday, Frank and Paula came to visit. It was good to catch up on all the grandkids. On Sunday morning, Nancy and Jay and Kelle, Colter and Valerie all visited because we have the late meeting on Sundays. Nancy helped my with my wig to wear to church. Most people don't know that I have very little hair and they though it was really mine. After church we got to talk to Jake on the Skype and it was great to see and listen to him. He looks really good and things seem to be going good for him. All of the Obergs were there exceept Ben and Beckas and family. of course. We had some of Taylor's good hamburgers. Then we went over to Carolyns and Kevins place. Young Kevin was celebrating his birthday along with Mother's Day. Kevin is 8 yrs. old and will be baptized in a couple of weeks. It was good to see the Calvins and Alex also. While we were there the Morbys came and so we all had a great visit. It was a long day. but a good one. Don has been so good to me and I am so happy to be the mother of his children. I am a very blessed person. It was good to hear from James and Alyson also. We are so happy that all of you are doing good. Keep it up. We love you all.

This last week Mom got a new hairdo. It is really short and because she is so cute, she pulls it off quite well don't you think? Most people would be worried about losing there hair but Mom, I love that you have confidence even in adversity. After staying with her during her last chemo treatment I came away with some observations. Most of those people that were there receiving treatments were some of the most positive people that I have met. Even with all of the trials that they are facing they have the most positive and upbeat attitudes. I know that a positive outlook is so necessary for positive results in healing. In that case Mom is going to be okay, because she has one of the most positive attitudes that I know.
Because today is Mother's Day I want her to know, (if she doesn't already know) how much she means to me. I feel very blessed to have her as a Mom and friend. She is the most supportive person you will find and as I was growing up I could always count on her to be there when I needed it. She went back to college after having 6 kids and at the time I had no idea what a big deal that was. Later I found out that she graduated Magna Cum Laude and that makes her accomplishment even more astounding! She is such a great supporter of not only her children but her grandchildren as well. We have all benefited from her cheering in the stands. Mom you are amazing and on this Mother's Day we want to wish you the best for the great example of womanhood that you are.
We love you!!!
