A Better Beginning.
It really has been.
Because of all of you!
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, we were able to go to AZ for a benefit concert to raise money for Taylor's 340,000+ medical bills. My Sister, with the help of a lot of really wonderful people, were able to put together this fantastic concert. Taylor and I sang together, and Taylor sang a tear-jerking rendition of "The Impossible Dream"-- one of his favorite songs to sing that has now taken on a whole new meaning.
There is a DVD of the concert available and YOU, yes YOU, can own it!
You can order by contacting my sister Linsey Maxson at linzmaxson@yahoo.com or 480-430-2232
You will love it. 
And if you don't...
You just will.

A lot of thoughts
Today and yesterday we had the opportunity to hear from our beloved Prophet and his Apostles at the General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
This conference, which occurs every 6 months, has always been a wonderful source of light and understanding in my life. I am so grateful for the words of the Prophet and Apostles concerning Gods children... concerning me.
I have always felt that the talks are inspired based on MY specific needs, however that is the miracle of the conference, that the message reaches the hearts of all those who view. 
It was 6 months ago, during October General Conference that Taylor and I started dating. 
He was visiting his friends in Sandy for the weekend, but on Sunday, after conference, he came prancing into my house and was just adorable. He was wearing his favorite green shirt. That was the shirt he was wearing in the accident and they cut it off of him. Sad day. 
I feel so grateful to know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and wants us to have complete happiness. If it wasn't for the gospel and my knowledge that families can be together forever, I don't know where I would be. Not here, smiling with my fiance, thats for sure.
God is so good. 
I hope that each of us holds our families close today and remember how blessed we are to have one another.  
We are so blessed.
