Hi Denise, Interesting and sweet facts about you and your growing up years. So glad you had a dear teacher that cared about you. I had a great 5th grade teacher who told me to go in the direction of my art. Many years later I listened and so glad I did. She was an inspiration.
Thanks for sharing and keeping you in my prayers. xo


Sounds to me that you had a wonderful, perfect youth!!!

Hi Denise! Wow, you really moved around a lot! And to come from the north and go right to the south too!
You were blessed with a lot of friends too. Do you still keep up with them?
All the games you played, I played too. Kick the Can was a favorite! I had a lot of brothers and sisters, and a great neighborhood, so we had great games in the summers. Wonderful memories!

I always love learning more about you dear friend. Let's see I was born in Richfield, Utah; moved to Salt Lake in 8th grade. Met my husband in high school; West High. We graduated and he went on a mission for our church and I went to nursing school. He came home we married an he finished school at the University of Utah. We have lived in Utah, California, Nevada and Washington. We are now back in Utah. I have lunch with High School friends at least every three months.
As a young girl I worked on a farm picking potatoes. I loved to play outdoor games and climb trees. I most of all loved horses and like to ride them when I could.
I have some great memories you brought back just today. Blessings, thanks and hugs for you today!
