Nothing to Say

Sometimes I wonder why I keep a blog.  I don't have young kids.  No grandkids.  Just cats.  But then I realize that I am incredibly blessed.  I have a wonderful husband who is kind and gentle but with a quirky sense of humor.  We always have a good time whether we are Disneyland or Sam's Club.  I have a fantastic son (OK well I did not give birth to him but he has been a wonderful part of my life since I married his dad).  He is a delight to talk to and a strong spirit about him.  I love my family so much and don't always remember to express this.

I also have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel.  For this I am very grateful.  With this knowledge I can endure the tough times and gain even more joy from the good times.  I am thankful for the opportunities I have for service and to be served.

I know this is just a short set of thoughts about how blessed I am but I needed to express what I am feeling.  Thanks for listening.

Book Review

I just finished a book that I was not the target audience.  This was geared to about 9-13 yr old boys.
Enemies and Allies by Kevin J Anderson. 
This is set in the 1950's and is the introduction of Batman and Superman.  If you have a child that is into comic books or superheroes then this is a good option for them.  The reading level (my guess) is about a 7th or 8th grade.  There is some history there and they may have questions about Sputnik,  McCarthy, and other significant things in that time period.  There was not even any kissing just some talk of Superman and Lois Lane falling in love.  There are 2 swear words (as far as I can remember).  A few spots get graphic about the battles but it is not bad.  I enjoyed it and would recommend it to your children if they are into superheroes.
