Love you Grant!
We are getting ready for Grandma and Grandpa Barlow's farewell. They are speaking twice, once at 9:00am in their old 24th ward and again at 1:00 in their new" Dry Creek ward". We are going to the 9:00am because I need to take dad to the shuttle Leaving from Salt Lake at 12:15. We drove up to Kaysville Friday together and he has to be back to work Monday. He is coming up to Preston Wednesday night and we are going to the Rodeo on Thursday. Kelly, and family are also coming up to the Rodeo on Thursday so that will be a lot of fun. Erin and I are staying at Angie's until Tuesday and then we are heading up to Preston that night and staying with Jody.
We had the annual water slide yesterday and Grandpa Barlow's church hill. It was a lot of fun with the exception of dad, on his first run down the hill he was trying to break the record of who could slide the furthest, was challenged and slid down on his stomach, hit a bump in the right place and hurt his rib!!!! So he has been miserable since. Cole and i just dropped dad off at the Harts gas station and was able to send him home in the front seat, hopefully that will help. He will have to go and take a picture to make sure it wasn't cracked--in order to ensure the that the lung wasn't damaged. One more accident insurance claim :) we have accumulated a lot this year!
Grandma and grandpa had great talks and spoke from the heart about spiritual self reliance and the power of the priesthood and being humble. He used a quote from Gordon B. Hinkley couldn't find the exact quote but here are two similar quotes"Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.”
