AMAZING!! INSPIRING!!

McKell called last night and invited me to come and hear Ronan Tynan at the BYU Devotional. He is one of the Three Irish Tenors. I was so excited and it was more amazing than I would have ever expected! I had chills as he told story after story of adversity and how he overcame it and how we too can do the same. I bought his book and Kell and I were able to meet him. As he signed our book, I made sure I told him I was Irish and where my people were from. It was a great experience - a great day! Thanks Kell for thinking of your Irish Mam! (mom in irish)
You can go to this link and hear some of his talk...http://www.ronantynan.net/news.aspx?bid=83

That's awesome! I love how proud you are of your Irish blood...that must be why you were rewarded with 2 red headed daughters! ha! I hope it inspired you to sing some Irish songs and riverdance for Dad and Bug!

Ah, college days - I love going to the lectures. I went and heard Judge Scalia at USU Wednesday and still remember when mom came to a design class at BYU with me. She fell asleep (in that straight up position) and when she woke up she shouted out the object that had been shown on a slide 10 min. earlier - "Red-Blue Chair" Everyone started laughing.

That is so great that you got to meet him! Did you shoe him your Irish river dancing?! I love the new look of your blog. I'm glad you have been blogging a lot lately.
