I just need to brag!

I just need to post a little brag about my cousin Jodi. She is so awesome. We are close to the same age. (3 weeks apart to be exact!) This is really not the best picture of us but it is the most recent one I have. We are in front of the Oquirrh Mountian Temple on a windy day:) We have had a great life together. We are extremely blessed to be part of a wonderful legacy left to us by our precious grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa Felt were and ARE two of the most incredible people I have ever known. I have always said that my Grandpa Felt was the most Christlike person I knew. And I learned so much about service, loving, and caring for others from my Grandma Felt. Jodi and I were blessed to be some of the oldest grandchildren and spend many wonderful times with our grandparents. We were lucky to have our grandma with us until we were close to 40 years old. Not many people are that lucky! Anyway, Jodi is so much like Grandma with the way she loves, cares, and serves. She is also a gifted writer and has had her first book published. ( I say first because I am sure there will be many more to come.) Her book is called "The Beauty of Virtue" and it is a must read for all women and teenage girls! She started writing it long before the Young Women of the church added virtue to their Young Women Values. She is truly inspired. I am leaving a link to her blog so you all can find out more about her book and read more about this wonderful lady! She will be in Cedar speaking in late March and I cannot wait to "show her off". I love you Jodi!

Here is her blog address...

I should REALLY not be able to use a computer!!!!

Yeah I really do not know what I am doing. I was so excited because I taught myself how to scan this picture into my computer. But then it posted sideways on my blog. I still do not know how to fix this problem. O.k and to make things worse I erased ALL of my bloglist this afternoon so now I have no blog addresses. So if you will do me a favor when you read my blog will you leave me a comment and tell me your blog address? Or you can email it to me. If you do not have my email address ask for it in a comment and I will send it to you. IF I can find your email address. :( One of my favorite parts of being a blogger is reading everyone elses blogs! So PLEASE help me out. Thank you!!!!

Living in 2010 & STILL trying to figure out computers:)
