Conclusions and Beginnings -- 8/27/06

Elder John Pingree spoke at the Bennion Heights Utah Stake Conference this weekend, concluding his visit with a message about gratitude. How our hearts resounded to that topic. Our lives are so richly blessed because of the Lord and so many of his helpers!
Dave the Concrete Guy finished the cement work on the back Friday. It is marvelous so many have helped with time and materials to make Joseph life comfortable and manageable. There are still challenges aplenty, but on to more blessings. . .

Greg Burton and Hallmark cabinets had the last of the cabinets installed on Saturday in Joseph's room, one by the sink and one over the toilet. They are beautiful and will last for many years. They are so well made. Through the years ahead we will remember the kindness of great craftsmen in providing such quality out of kindness and love. This marks the conclusion of permanent intallations to Joseph's room and to the outside of the house, other than landscaping.

Gloria and Elizabeth were able to spend Thursday evening through Saturday afternoon at a really fun Heartstrings conference. ( This is a hobby as well as a business they are engaged in, using their ability in scrapbooking to make it easy for others to make great things for family memories. It was a real change of pace for both of them. They gained so many great ideas and it was fun to spend time with one of our former missionaries from Las Vegas, Lindsey Futrell (the former Sis. White) and her sister. Lindsey was an awesome (no. . . AWESOME) missionary and is now an awesome wife and mom.

Joseph is scheduled to start back to School on Tuesday, he's excited to get back to it. There are
plenty of challenges just now but he's facing them with grit and determination. Your prayers are always of great help. As the photo attests things are sometimes restful at the Taggarts. . . sometimes.
