Smithsonian in September 2012

One of my heroes is Julia Child.  She found out what she loved and she put her whole heart into what she did.  
Look at her kitchen!!  Does anyone need a pan?

One word that describes this kitchen very well--FUNCTION.  Everything has a place, pretty much.  It is all about the cooking and the people.

I love this photo and that it is slightly skewed from my camera angle, because I think sometimes the people that seem to get the most done are the people that delegate and have help.  I'm working that with you.  You are learning to do your chores and help out around the house.  You help with other children when we are out and about.

Ms. Child found what interested her and put her whole heart into what she wanted to do.  President Thomas S. Monson in the October 2004 General Conference said: 

Each of us should remember that he or she is a son or daughter of God, endowed with faith, gifted with courage, and guided by prayer. Our eternal destiny is before us. The Apostle Paul speaks to us today as he spoke to Timothy long years ago: "Neglect not the gift that is in thee." "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust."
At times many of us let that enemy of achievement—even the culprit "self-defeat"—dwarf our aspirations, smother our dreams, cloud our vision, and impair our lives. The enemy’s voice whispers in our ears, "You can’t do it." "You’re too young." "You’re too old." "You’re nobody." This is when we remember that we are created in the image of God. Reflection on this truth provides a profound sense of strength and power.
May I leave with you today a simple yet far-reaching formula to guide you in the choices of life:
Fill your minds with truth.Fill your hearts with love. Fill your lives with service. 
By doing so, may we one day hear the plaudit from our Lord and Savior, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
This is just to remind you that I have complete faith in you!  Discover and follow your dreams!  I love you!
