I am sitting in a hotel in Cheyenne, Wyoming and contemplating the blessings in my life. I think that there are far too many times when I take for granted all of the things that I have in my life, and get caught up in those "woe is me" moments. I am so grateful that the Lord has seen fit to bless me with a wonderful friend and companion that constantly helps me to see the light. I wanted to just send a quick note to my sweet wife and let her know that I love her and could not enjoy my life without her in it. I am so blessed to have such a wise woman to help me in my times of weakness and provide such a good example. I have been blessed in so many things that I sometimes take for granted what I have. I am so lucky to have a wonderful job that provides for my family in these troubled times. I am blessed to have amazing friends and family members who continue to enjoy good health and live good lives. I am so thankful to have a little angel that calls me daddy and brings a smile and sense of pride to me every time I think about her. I am blessed to have the love of Shelley, and everyday thank my Father in Heaven for her. What a great joy and source of happiness she is to me! I love you Shelley and miss you dearly. I can't wait to come home and be with you. Thank you for being the mom, wife, and woman that you are. You are my perfect example of how to live like the Savior and I am lucky that you love me. Thank you for all that you do. See you soon!
