Happy (belated) Mothers' Day!

Even though Mothers day has come and gone I have to give credit where credit is wonderful mom!
I have the best Mom!!! She is so wonderful, Christlike, giving, happy, selfless, loving, compassionate, sweet, talented, nurturing, fun, smart, full of service and so much more! My mom is what I aspire to be like. When I lived at home there would be so many mornings i was up early for school ( community college) and would try and sneak downstairs so i wouldn't wake the rest of my family and would find her sitting quietly in the family room studying her scriptures with one little light on.
Other times when i would rush home from class and had about 1 hour til work she would be waiting there with a lunch for me so I wouldn't be late and offered to chat or just sit and watch one of my favorite TV shows at the time.
I cannot draw and my mom there were numerous book report presentations or other assignments in elementary school that she drew for me!
My mom introduced me to the violin, my love of reading, family traditions and the joy of motherhood and having fun with your kids in the simple things in life. She would literally play in the rain with us or have leaf races after a storm.
She always made (still does) me feel important!
If I can be the kind of mother to my kids that my mom has been and continues to be to us- I will be a success! I love you Mom!!!

My dad is hip!

My dad got to meet Kiefer Sutherland aka Jack Bauer when he (Kiefer) was in Utah. He came to Simmons Media and met my dad and other X96 people. Apparently he is a fan of X96. My dad said he was really nice in person and does like X96.

Now how many other dads especially those over 50 can say they listen to X96 and have met Kiefer Sutherland? My dad is pretty hip. love you Dad.
