on my mind

Don't you hate it when you're trying to do something really nice for someone else, who needs help? And someone else tries to make you feel stupid or tells you you're doing the wrong thing? I guess it doesn't happen a lot, but it happened to me today. I got really frustrated and upset, but I feel like I stood my ground. Maybe I even tried to make that other person feel a little bit bad for not helping. I just don't get it ... if someone needs help, and I can help them - why wouldn't I?

Thanks for listening to me vent ... I'll reward you with some fun things I've been looking at on the internet:

Utah fire info - Maybe this is only interesting if you live in Utah and have ash on your car and smoke in your lungs ... but it's kind of neat to see where all the fires are, how contained they are, and what started them ...

I really like this store. I mostly want to buy this, but it is a bit pricey ... maybe I'll make my own.

My friend Brian is a really super awesome photographer. This summertime shot is one of my very favorites ... but check out his whole site, he's very talented.

Bored? Doodle here.

A lovely post with a great reminder.

How fun does this backyard movie night look?? Let's do it.

This might make you feel bad ... but it also might make you feel awesome.

And since it is the Sabbath, I'd like to share some really nice (random) church thoughts:

Alma 37:37
"Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day."

"This is a paradox of man: compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God. While against the backdrop of infinite creation we may appear to be nothing, we have a spark of eternal fire burning within our breast. We have the incomprehensible promise of exaltation—worlds without end—within our grasp. And it is God’s great desire to help us reach it." —Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Have a great Sunday!

i love your posts. your findings are always so cool. that necklace is rad. I've been looking for one with a gun on it...would people judge me with that while carrying babies around? ha.

Weird about someone being mean about you helping. Strange I had something like that happen to me a few weeks back. odd indeed. hope your sunday was good!
