This was my favorite quote throughout high school. I just love it.
It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. … If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.
This year it was me & the husband's turn to plan the family reunion. We had such a wonderful time. It started with a stay at Zermatt in Midway, Utah. We swam, played games, ate pizza from The Store. The next day we hiked Ensign Peak (so fun- a great hike for all ages!), ate lunch at City Creek Center food court, toured The Beehive House and played at the Church History Museum. I'm worn out just typing it! It was a lot of fun though! We asked each family to come prepared with what it means to be a Burton. Some were silly, some thoughtful. But all together it summed up nicely what it means to be a part of this wonderful family.
Of course, I had to do my thing and turn it in to something frameable. I want my kids to see this (and me, too) and reflect regularly on who we are trying to be :)
I did forget to add one very important thing: if your going to play, play fast :)
I made these little thank you's for all the school personal who helped out my little guy this year. We moved just 2 1/2 weeks before school started, so he was the brand new kid. I wanted to show my appreciation for everyone at his new school who helped during those first few months. I included a gift card to In & Out along with it and just printed out my little saying above and taped it over the gift card.
