this is real life

Wedding in Payson at 9:30am.

Family funeral in Midway at 11:00am. Followed by a graveside, then a family dinner.

Two-hour window in between to help Zack make and bake pies for his ward dinner tomorrow (along with some for our dinner, because why not?!). Shane did the Costco run with Lindsay. His sister from New Mexico stopped by, as she was up for the funeral.

My nephew opened his mission call at 5:30 in Cedar Hills. He’s going to Costa Rica!

Shane ran into one of the two wedding receptions we’d been invited to tonight. He had less than five minutes, because we had to be to stake conference at

7:00pm. Full two hours and then some with a general authority from Fiji.

Joy. Sorry. Laughter. Tears. Love. Loss. Hellos. Goodbyes. Life.

  1. Elder Waicola? He was the Little Rock, Arkansas, mission president until this past summer. Lovely person, but the man can talk.

    • Yes he can! I’m not quite sure I’ve ever heard anyone who can recite scripture off the top of his head and also talk and talk some more quite like that. But lovely. Today we got to hear from his wife–also lovely–and one of his missionaries, who is from our stake. That was kind of fun. Thank you for reading, Diane. 🙂

      • I always read your blog, Dalene! You write with such tenderness and introspection.
