It's almost done!!
The Gilbert Temple will be the fifth temple in Arizona--isn't it beautiful!
There is no set date for the completion but it should be late 2013 or early 2014. When it's complete there will be an open house for a month before it is dedicated. If you've ever wondered what a LDS temple is like then I would highly suggest that you stop by some time in that month and tour the Temple. You will not regret it, they are beautiful!

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived."-George S. Patton
"I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me."-Lee Greenwood
I am extremely grateful for those who are serving today, those who served yesterday and for those who will serve tomorrow. Today I am especially grateful to those who gave their all and were never able to return home to their families. Thank you for giving me the gift of freedom.

All the positive and negative experiences of being human.
Last week Phoenix Police Officer Daryl Raetz was killed in the line of duty.
Three days later his daughter Tatum graduated from Kindergarten.
When she arrived at school she learned that even though her daddy would not be there to see her graduate her Phoenix Police Department family was.
They will never be able to replace her daddy, bet Phoenix PD made sure that five year old Tatum knew that they will always be watching over her.

Today is Eliza Doolittle Day!
No it is not a holiday I made up--but one I would totally have voted for! I love the musical My Fair Lady! I loved Audrey Hepburn in it. I was shocked to find out that it's not her singing in the movie--even though she did take singing lessons and I believe, if I remember from my Musicals Theory Class, she did not know she was going to be dubbed. And of course I love the version of the songs sung by Julie Andrews.
So pick up some flowers and your favorite chocolates, put on your biggest Ascot appropriate hat
or your tiara and enjoy a little Doolittle!

All of the positive and negative experiences of being human!
Alyssa had a dream come true when she met Snow White at Disneyland; little did she know that meeting the Disney Princess was only the beginning of her wishes coming true. Snow White and Alyssa skipped to the wishing well, she closed her eyes and said "I wish with all my heart that my daddy would come home."
She opened her eyes...and her daddy had come home!
All it took was faith and trust and a little bit of...well...Disney!
