Rising together, just the two. The two hearts as one, Whom found their love, so true.
You Need To Know My feelings I cannot hide, They are from, so deep inside, I can not even begin to say, This poem alone cannot convey. The love I feel for you my sweet, Makes me feel my lives complete, I need to tell you, and let you know, That I love you, from head to toe. Your love is more than I deserve, I only wish I had the nerve, To love as you do, so complete, And give some more when I am beat. I love you dear, with all my heart, Together we will be, we shall not part, and if the entire world went away, My love for you would always stay. I will be right here, a rock for you, In all the things we need to do, I promise to love you like you do me, A true and complete love, for eternity.

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk. When you lose, don't lose the lesson. Follow the three R's: respect for self, respect for others, responsibility for all your actions. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. Spend some time alone every day. Open your arms to change but don't let go of your values. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation; don't bring up the past. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality. Be gentle with the earth. Once a year, go someplace you've never been before. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. Judge your success by what you had to give up-in order to get it.
Love unfeigned: charity, caring for others' welfare despite any wrongdoing. Acceptance: seeing others in eternal perspective, judging with compassion. Integrity: being honest, a personal commitment to righteousness. Persuasion: teaching with compassion, kindly pointing out advantages and disadvantages of situations. Gentleness: soft, not treating others harshly. Trust: lovingly allowing others to exercise their agency to choose right or wrong and to accept the consequences. Responsibility: acknowledging and assuming your role in any situation including repenting for past wrongdoing. Meekness: humility, uncomplaining, and teachable.

May it ease your sadness a bit to know that your precious memories will always be a bridge between this world and the next, between your loved one and you. Remember that many friends who care share your loss and that you're in our thoughts and hearts and in our every prayer. "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are all passed away" To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under Heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die. A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted. A time to kill, And a time to heal. A time to break down, And a time to build up. A time to weep, And a time to laugh. A time to mourn, And a time to dance. A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones. A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing. A time to gain, And a time to lose. A time to keep, And a time to throw away. A time to tear, And a time to sew. A time to keep silence, And a time to speak. A time to love, And a time to hate. A time of war, And a time of peace.

Reclaiming a Wayward Child: Are you willing to act in love and firmness toward your child without demanding, in advance, a guarantee of success? In other words, are you willing to walk by faith? What do you believe love would require of you? What would you need to do in addition to having faith? Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all you do. Never give up. (Faith is the starting point.) Teach your child correct principles in a loving way. Review alternatives and their consequences with your child. Help your child carry out responsible decisions. Be firm in allowing your child to experience the consequences of his choices. (However, if consequences could be very destructive to either the child or others, then parents are correctly prompted to intervene.) Acknowledge your imperfections.

My daddy is the greatest man, a heart that I love so, he always seems to carry me, wherever my life goes.
Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die.
My granddaughter Tiffany Lynn Williams was born on the 22nd May 1980 at Salt Lake City Utah. Robert Ernest Wakley was born.
Teaching by Example, Teaching Responsibility: Accept responsibility yourself. A child will learn more from your example than from what you simply tell them. Help children understand why responsibility is important by pointing out consequences and considering the future. Set rules and discuss responsibility. Reason together with your child, discussing the alternatives and the responsibilities of each alternative. When a child avoids responsibility, discuss with him why and help him either plan how to complete his responsibility or set new responsibilities he can do. When a child breaks a rule, help him accept responsibility by letting him suffer the consequences. When we as parents make mistakes, acknowledge them, and accept the consequences, we teach our children that it is possible to grow from our mistakes and become responsible. Setting Limits: Involving children in setting limits helps them understand rules and consequences from the parent's perspective. Real love and concern for children is not shown by allowing them to do whatever they want. Rather, it is having them obey rules and limits and face consequences when those rules and limits are broken. Being consistently allowed to cross limits without facing consequences fails to teach children the purposes of rules. Firmness, fairness, and love go together when teaching dependability and setting limits. Indulgence, injustice, and indifference to limits teach irresponsibility. Helping Children Learn: Helping a Child Overcome Failure, Give Children Opportunities to Help and grow. Teaching about Procreation and Chastity: Responding to Your Children's Questions, Teaching Your Children before Puberty. Standards are rules or guidelines given to help you measure your conduct.
Relationships with Others: Begin to prepare now for a temple marriage. Proper dating is a part of that preparation. Everyone needs good friends: Your circle of friends will greatly influence your thinking and behavior, just as you will theirs. When you share common values with your friends, you can strengthen and encourage each other. If some of your friends are shy and do not feel included, be particularly sensitive to their feelings and go out of your way to pull them into the influence of your strong circle of good friends. Together you can maintain a high standard of gospel living. Worthiness and Service Joy and happiness come from living the way the Lord wants you to live and from service to God and others. Seek for opportunities to serve others in your family, neighborhood, school, community, and Church.

In 1987 I visited Fort McCoy Wisconsin where I went to Nekoosa Wisconsin and visited the Wakley Inn… A symbol…of those who have gone before the ferrymen, trappers, traders, Indians, rafters, farmers, peopling the historical romance from which has come our civilization. Wakley Inn continues…living history while making history…The Wakley Inn Point Basse is at the foot of the last rapids on the Wisconsin, Robert Wakley's Inn was the center of the once-busy hamlet of Point Basse. In and around the two-story Greek Revival structure camped Indiana, trappers, traders, and explorers. Stagecoach traveler between Necedah and Stevens Point stopped for the night. In 1831, the first sawmill on the Wisconsin was built nearby. Point Basse had visions of prominence but an 1860's lumber company failed and railroads in the 1870's located elsewhere. A paper mill across the river at Nekoosa in 1893 ended any chance for Point Basse. Nevertheless, the Wakley Inn continued to play an important role in local history as location of a river-driven ferry until 1916. In 1984, with the destruction of the building imminent, Wakley Inn Preservation, Inc. was formed to accept the property. On January 7, 1986, Wakley owner Nekoosa Papers, Inc. handed the keys to Wakley Inn Preservation. Cooperation between the non-profit Wakley organization and Nekoosa Papers, Inc. had prepared the way for the opening of the Wakley Inn to the public. How to get to Wakley Inn you take Highway 73 to County Highway Z, proceed south 6/10 of a mile south on Z to Wakley Road. Take Wakley Road 1/4 mile to the end of the road. Wakley Inn is an 1831 historical area, first white settlers of the Wisconsin area, and has beautiful flower gardens. Central Wisconsin Historical Trail is an adventure in history. From the Grand Rapids of Wisconsin River to Wakley Inn at the now abandoned town of Pointe Basse, the rich heritage of central Wisconsin is brought to life. This trail is a hiking/biking trail covering 20 miles. Along this trail 21 points of historical interest are visited. Samoset Council, Boy Scouts of America operate this trail in cooperation with Wakley Inn Preservation Inc. This trail was intended for the use of the public to promote healthful outdoor activity and a knowledge of and respect for the hearty pioneers who settled this area. Beginnings in the early 1830's loggers were among the first to come here. Soon followed businessmen and farmers to settle the area. Some came by boat on the river, others by horse or ox drawn wagon over the pinery road from Fort Winnebago. Soon a population of diverse backgrounds began to turn this wilderness into the home that all could be proud of. Pottery chards, plate ware, fun flint, bone; teeth, pipe stems, and nails were among the items catalogued at Wakley Inn. More specific archeology is planned to enrich our knowledge of the Wakley inhabitants. The Annual Point Basse Pioneer Festival provides a living link to history. The Wakley Inn Preservation, Inc. sponsors this exiting event on the Wakley Inn grounds each June. Included in the festivities are many dramatic demonstrations of dress, work, food, and fun as it is thought to have been in Wakley's era…Stroll the self guided nature trail which meanders the Wisconsin River and caresses the quiet banks of Wakley Creek…Enjoy the fresh smells of spring blossoms and leafy colors of summer and fall cultivated from the Wakley gardens. Learn the history of our area by following the Central Wisconsin Historical Trail…Break for a quiet picnic at the Wakley Inn… Plan a field trip or have an outdoor classroom in the new amphitheater.

My mother is my treasure: For years my heart has carried a reflection of my past. I always see my Mother she's in this looking glass. Wore her pretty dresses always felt divine. Mother always had a way of giving me sunshine. Every day I looked inside her wardrobe stored upstairs. Couldn't wait to dress all up with the special clothes she'd wear. Oh my heart just fills me up with love so tenderly as I watch my baby girl's repeat this naturally. All my frilly dresses and my hats she wears with glee looking like the little child that lives inside of me.
Welcome to Heaven: Touched my soul with softness God's Angel of great light softly kissed my forehead carried me in flight. Lifted me to heaven I felt all fear subside wrapped her wings around me so swiftly we did glide. Followers all around me her smile such perfect bliss my heart so filled with happiness No greater love than this. Reached the gates of heaven angels gathered 'round wreath of special flowers upon my head was crowned. There is all His glory Jesus smiled at me. Said my child I love you your soul shines brilliantly. Today I give you sunshine I give you love and peace. Friends and all your loved ones gathered for great feast. Now you are in heaven where pain has gone away to each of you I offer God's spiritual bouquet. Angels all around me they fill my heart with love home at last I greet them the heavens shine above.

Privacy Journal for my Descendants---is for my descendants. These items are going to be added in 2000 when I am 62 years old. It is personal items competed and items I have learned during my life.

Showers of Blessings: Upon the clouds of heaven where rainbows glow so bright angel filled with beauty forever shines her light. Wings so strong and mighty spanned throughout the earth watching all from heaven each blessing of great worth. Prayers on wings of angel flying through midair touching each with meaning her spirit always near. Feel the love from heaven fall down from the sky gentle wings cascading gathered from on high. Prayers of love repeating as she smiles with grace touching you so gently from heaven's special place. Joyous loves within you it falls from up above wings that glide so sweetly with God's devoted love.
To be a happy, loving family we will have peace in our home. Speak in kind tones, and say kind things to each other. Seek permission. Ask permission to borrow things and to go places. Maintain order. Pick up after us, and be faithful in our responsibilities for household chores. Respect each other and each other's property. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Be obedient. Keep the commandments, follow the prophet and be obedient to our parents.
We will always remember that three things that will help us to be an eternal family are Honesty, Morality, and Service. We will find joy in these things and in each other.
We believe that it is easier to prevent problems from occurring than it is to "clean up" after them. Having a family routine is part of this prevention. Once our children are old enough to understand our two basic rules that fall under these two categories, allowing to children's common sense to rule them. The older they get, the less "little rules" we need.
Here are some other items that may help you. We start the day together with family prayer, verses of scripture, and breakfast. We all have "responsibilities" that have to be done daily. (We try to avoid using the word "chores." They will have "responsibilities" their whole lives, and need to get used to it.) We cannot play until responsibilities are taken care of. We all help in the kitchen at meal times. The children help set the table, and after meals each person must load their own dishes in the dishwasher and clear away three other items from the table. Even young ones are capable of putting away things like ketchup, salad dressing, milk, etc…
When we go places in the car every person, without exception, is buckled in, every time. This crates a habit while they are still very young, and because they don't know anything different, it does not become an issue later on. We don't interrupt each other when speaking. Everyone is supposed to clean up after him or herself. We don't call mean names to each other or put each other down. We don't yell at each other. We try to have family scriptures at night and family prayer afterwards. Monday night is family night and no other activity gets priority. We plan and carry out a least one fun family activity each month. This builds great memories. Everyone over the age of three is expected to contribute to the family work. Everyone is expected to do their best in school and other activities.

History - - To know where and to whom we belong in the scheme of things is a source of security to us. We need to know that God is our Father and that he has entrusted us to earthly parents and forebears whom contributed to our being uniquely "us." We can and should get to know them. Use stories of ancestors as bedtime stories. Have family reunions. Go as a family to places of historical significance to our ancestors. Get acquainted with extended family members. If they are near visit them. Keep many journals and write our own personal history. Read histories and journals. Consider naming our children after an ancestor who has been a good example. Have a family genealogist. Go to the temple for your ancestors and others.

Always be open to new ideas. Attend parenting classes and read parenting books. Share ideas that work well with others. Identify the characteristics of each age so you know what is "normal" and what you should be concerned about. Be flexible, If you are stressed, busy, etc. when a child is asking for something, schedule another time, relax, or take more time, so that you don't say "no" and later change your mind to "yes". Is quick to apologize to spouse and children when needed? Once a week calendar activities with spouse and children. This helps everyone understand requirements of work, school, and church. Always go on yearly family vacations. It doesn't have to be overnight, but just a rest from normal activities. Let children know you are never too busy to talk. If the child has a need to talk and you appear busy, set up a sign or code word or phrase, that will remind you that you need to drop everything and listen.

The Relationship is always more important than who is right. It is possible for both of you to be right and have opposite views. It is more important to understand what the other person is saying. Sometimes love notes left under the pillow, or in the car, or lunch box, can do more verbal expressions. Listen before you judge. (Extremely difficult to do). Make video/audio tapes of special stories for your children to listen to during the day or night.
Be consistent be unified. You are in parenting for the long haul. Sometimes it is difficult to see the positive aspects of your parenting skills, but they are there. Ask your children, "What one thing do they like about you as a parent?" Then ask them, "If there was one thing they could change about you as a parent what would it be?" Listen carefully. Make changes where necessary and possible. Communication is key. Even when you aren't able to talk with a particular child, still tell them how much you want to listen and share feelings. If you try everything and are still unsuccessful, try a good-based counselor.

One important happiness prescription is to follow your work passion wherever it may lead. . If you do what you love (In terms of work) the monel will follow. Equal pay for equal work is a useful goal. In a healthy society a majority of men would naturally gravitate toward spatial and physical work, as happens today. In a healthy society a majority of women would Naturally gravitate towards being administrators, bankers, judges or accountants, also their more traditional occupations such as clerks secretaries and telephone operators. Equal male-female representation in most job categories is neither likely nor desirable. Women often make choices, which contribute to the fact that their average incomes are less than those of men are. Shopping and sports (spectator or otherwise) are two common outlets for our competitive drives. Competition rules usually tend to become less fair over time; new rules will always be needed.
Popular relatively new parenting strategies are one major cause of society's increased levels of violence. It is not natural to be unhappy when we do not get what we want. Changes in spiritual beliefs have caused some of our society's increased levels of violence. 97% of us numbed out to some degree during childhood and have yet to regain our innate aliveness. Our fears of homelessness contribute to the climate of violence. Feminist verbal bashing of men sometimes has the effect of causing increased violence. Adding moral education (for every third hit, killing, etc) to kids TV shows would dramatically reduce societal violence in years to come. Widespread understanding of the virtual universality of hatred in small children would help to reduce all types of societal violence. Adult hatred is most often the skewed emergence of childhood hatred at convenient targets of today. Violence is not as ingrained as most folks believe.
Most of us think that if just 1 or 2 of our difficult problems were solved, then we would be forever happy. Useful therapies focus upon one or more of the following: body, mind, emotions, and spirit. For men, (women too but not so often), addictions are often caused by the choice not to feel sadness and grief. For women, (men too but not so often), addictions are often caused by the choice not to feel rage and hate. One common attribute of happy people is that they are grateful

Women in general have received more negative training about sexuality than men have. Wild and serious sex is recommended. The caviar of sex is often different for men and women. Men naturally have more sexual drive than women do on average. Our sexual Puritan heritage still negatively affects most of us. Being frequently concerned with "scoring" or with number of sexual "scores" usually indicates fear of relationship. Sexual preferences are not usually consciously chosen. Sexual arousal is strongly aided if emotional love is present for the partner. Those attempting to change sexual preference have not a good chance of accomplishing such a change. It is healthy that the majority of Catholics does not follow the sexual rules espoused by the Catholic Church. Men and women think differently about rape. For sexual difficulties, sex therapy is usually less expensive and more efficacious than talk therapy. Men are often unaware of how their sexual words affect women. Our differing hormones cause different levels of female and male sexual interest. Repugnance about pornography is not natural and healthy. Sexually, even in some ideal future society, men and women will always be different.

The insensitivity's of men are often in the areas of loving, vulnerability, and grief. The insensitivity's of women are often in the areas of sexuality, competitiveness and anger. We would have a happier society if the words "masculine" and "feminine" were never used. Emotions and human character traits are human, not the sole province of one gender. Most women have yet to fully resolve the housework traumas inflicted upon them by their mothers. Until they do, most will continue to judge their spouses harshly. The average women prefers left-brained activities (like talking), the average man right-brain activities (like sports). The average woman speaks twice as many words as the average man and has done so from the time she was a two-year-old. Men are more intuitive than women are. Women are more logical than men are. ... The average man is right-brained, the average woman left-brained.

I do not get angry when verbally attacked. I am comfortable with others' grief, even those in close relationship to me. I get angry or fearful when physically threatened. I am able to decide to love another and then do so. I am comfortable with others' anger and hate. I don't worry regularly in some circumstances. At times and in some circumstances I will not feel shame. I keep my anger from coming back in certain situations or with specific people. For some things I have done in the past, I don't feel guilty. At times I don't feel degraded and humiliated. I don't get anxious about some situations. Sadness doesn't keeps recurring for me over specific issues. Jealousy should not a part of my life. You should not get blue or depressed regularly. In my life stress should ends. I am comfortable hugging other adults of either sex. I regularly allow my own wracking sobs and tears. With a particular partner I am able to express all of the following: emotional love, physical love, words of love and lusty sexual love. Once my sobs and tears have been released, I feel great. I am comfortable saying the words "I love you" to men, women and children in a feeling way.

Q: What about all the anger and hatred we see everywhere today? A: Hate (the interest's form of rage) is one of our most difficult emotions. In the past decade or so, it has become OK with many to rage at those who do not agree with us. Spewing vitriolic anger and hatred often temporarily makes one feel calmer and less stressed. But that violent process of releasing anger is really much the same as using food, a drug or a drink as a temporary calming device. It works but not for long. There is a conflict in the therapeutic community's beliefs on the value of hatred- should hatred be avoided entirely or should some or all of it be elicited? This author believes it is important to feel the inner child feelings of anger and hate so that they may be moved through and beyond, but that such feelings at targets of today is not ultimately productive.

Most of us avoid difficult issues by joining groups; we can them blame others. Our US society has come a long way in terms of racism, sexism, and homophobia. Blacks in the US with a B+ high school grade average have a better chance than whites of entering college. When we are misunderstood, it is not natural for us to feel hurt. Overuse of the words "sexism" "racism" and "homophobia" is prevalent among activists. Our favorite groups usually resist healthy changes, doing things instead the way we did them last time. In-groups we all tend to suffer from "going along disease". Most groups trap themselves by blaming others far too often. Societal problems today are often "group" problems, not problems of current racism, sexism or hopmophobia. To change the world, we often need to change our own groups first; our groups are usually set up instead to demand change from others.

Often missing from those who have completed therapy is the sparkle that emanates from those who are fully living their lives. There are many, generally painless, ways to gain more spontaneity, creativity and joy in one's life. Overcoming fears is often necessary to achieve maximum happiness. If I face my traumas, pleasure will not automatically follow. You can be happy until all your traumas have been resolved. Practicing imagery is often effective in improving creativity and spontaneity. For happiness, it is important to have goals and to be clear about the things you want. Daily persistence is one of the fastest routes to creativity and spontaneity. Most of us as children incorporated and still have ideas that inhibit our playfulness and ability to have fun. Positive sayings (i.e. affirmations) can be very useful in increasing one's creativity and spontaneity.

Blame is both valuable and useless. The choice between "being right" and "being happy" is frequently difficult. Hatred must be felt to get beyond it. Genuine hatred of parents is present at times in most every child. One-core feelings in our traumas are that of hopelessness. Healing accomplished by imagining happier occurrences in childhood is not lasting. Healing from hopelessness usually involves tears streaming down cheeks and/or wracking sobs. If I still feel hurt by any past experience, then I still have healing work to do.

About 97% of us grew up in at least somewhat dysfunctional families. Authoritarian messages from a parent to a child are not harmful in the long run. The most frequent childhood trauma is not the highly abusive kind of trauma. Compassion and humanness are often blocked in the average person when following directions given by someone in authority. Children receiving authoritarian messages are not more likely to be violent later on. Most of us are at our most neurotics when visiting families of origin. Millions of mothers are often sexist too, believing that their spouses are inherently just not as capable at being parents. One root cause of many societal ills is the abdication by fathers of parental responsibility. Children who have lived through parental divorce have many more problems statistically than those children without such experience do. Children of working mothers don't have more difficulties than those with stay-at-home mothers. Latchkey children (those without after-school adult supervision) have more problems than peers do with such supervision. Most of us knowingly and unknowingly continue to search for parental approval decades after childhood is over age wise. One important role of the elderly is to become more self-centered and introspective.

Denial is the first stage if healing. Blame and anger are evidence of the second stage of healing. When making changes, small steps are usually the most effective. "Impossible" successes often result from pretending or visualization. Procrastination is both: often necessary and often a trap. To change the world, the maxim "think globally, act locally" is most appropriate. To change others, being angry, critical and demanding of them is not the best choice. Self-criticism is not a useful self-help tool. The choice between doing nothing or taking action is often difficult, if you are bothered, it is best to take some action, however small. Our intentions to read many books or to complete many projects often rob us of energy to accomplish such intentions. Get rid of most of your intentions. Being overweight is often caused by food allergy/ intolerance. Ingesting foods, which we do not tolerate well, frequently causes depression. Anger difficulties are often caused by food intolerance of which we are unaware. Food allergies are not most often known to us. Addictive food allergies are the sole cause of millions of so-called "psychological" symptoms. The most frequent food allergies/ intolerance is wheat, corn and dairy. You, not your doctor, most accurately do testing for food allergies and intolerance. To test for food allergies, getting a food such as wheat or dairy out of your diet for five days can be tricky.
