My mom may be as close to angelic as you'll ever find. She selflessly cares unconditionally for others. Especially her family. I am so lucky that out of all of her grand kids, she likes my kids the best. She can't help it. (Hate to say it, but she likes me the best too.)

This is my beautiful Grandma Chesley. I feel quite privileged to have had the opportunity to have her stay with us. She has a sister who lives here in the Phoenix area, and came to stay with her for a few weeks. Before grandma went home, she was able to stay with me for a couple of days. It was truly a treat. She was a wonderful guest. Not enough trouble. I was prepared to really pamper her, but she just connected with my kids and with me. How many kids get to really connect with their great-grandparents? Austin, I must say, was a total gentleman. I was so proud of him. He treated her with such respect. She even helped him practice the piano. She was, after all, my piano teacher when I was young. I told her she was a great teacher, I was a poor student. Her, taking the time to teach me, was awesome, and I love her for it.
I hope I inherited some of her genes. She is 85 and, no lie, I have more wrinkles than she does!! She is amazing. I hope she knows how much we enjoyed having her around!

I have always had the ingrained thought that I had to be a certain way in order to be loved, accepted, or "good". No matter how much my heart intercepts, and my brain intercepts, I somehow believe this absurd thought. Trying to reprogram myself is quite a slow and torturous process. I guess many think they must "perform" in one way or another, but is our worth dependent on that? Some may say if we didn't, we must be worth-less. But, in D&C 18:10 it reads that "the worth of souls is great in the sight of God." Just being a soul makes us great and worthwhile. If we could all just build on that, and make something of ourselves because we're already great, Not to prove to ourselves or others that because of what we accomplish, or how we look, or how popular we are, or how much money we have that we now qualify as great. We are counciled to "aBe ye therefore bperfect, even as your cFather which is in heaven is dperfect". Which is only possible through Christ's atoning sacrifice. Not, "be perfect, even like the person in that parent, fortune 500, fitness, or high fashion magazine". If we all looked upon others without judgment, but love, knowing that they are a son or daughter of God, learning and growing on this great green earth, we wouldn't have to seek the approval of others, because they would already approve despite our faults and failures. Anyway, surely I'm not making sense by now, but if we can all believe that we are quite valuable, and make it our mission to convince others of this by loving, serving, and caring- rather than judging, our worth and happiness, love, and closeness to perfection would probably increase ten-fold.
These songs lyrics really struck a chord with me. Weird? I never claimed to be normal...and I've been accused of being too deep... oh well, at least I'm worth a lot.
that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing
that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy
that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you
