In the 33rd Year of Dori..

Today is my Birthday. My 33rd Birthday. I use to really obsess about my birthday when I was younger probably like all kids do. But now it's not the presents or cake or parties I like It's my friends that I would like to celebrate. A phone call or card or email from a friend is one of the nicest presents I could receive. But I expect no one to remember my birthday...Except Bill! So when people do remember it. It's the same feeling I get when the sun shines in the morning.

As one friend said today about her birthday "It's a start to a new year". So in this 33rd year of my life I hope for a few things.

1. I hope to just play more.

2. I hope to learn more from the scriptures

3. I hope to serve more..because that really makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing

4. I hope to be and make good friends and stay connected to precious ones.

So I'm hoping to live by this quote this year.... Start with a desire and make it happen!

That is my gift to myself today to start my 33rd year with lots of good desires and make lots of good things happen!!

(This picture is of me at the 4th of July Rodeo last year....I was actually wondering what my hair looked like and so I took a picture so I could see! heehee)

Happy Birthday Dori! I love the picture! Isn't it funny how you have like 7 million pictures of the kids, but it's pretty impossible to ever find one of yourself! How's your new ward? I hope you guys are loving it. We sure do miss you here!!
