I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Finishing Mosiah: Hiking

Our reward for finishing the Book of Mosiah was a family hike, since so many people spend a lot of time hiking in the wilderness. We hiked to Upper Stillwater Dam in the Uintah Mountains. And being such a good mom, I forgot my camera! Luckily, dad had his phone with him (never thought I would say that! LOL!) and so we snapped a couple of pictures while we were on the Dam.
