Let me explain briefly the “summer vacation” comment. My husband and I were planning to build a home on some property nearby, had sold our big city home and moved to the Reno area. Then we found out the neighbor was a major liability and for other reasons as well thought perhaps we had not chosen so well for a retreat in the mountains. After spending the summer trying to make an impossible situation work, we decided to move on and put the property up for sale. I have always believed in the “Invisible Hand” as George Washington called it, (thanks, Glenn Beck) and our temporary misery had a purpose: to move us on to where we have a better retreat and to give us the time and resources to build our food stores. My connection with the Mormons was a beautiful light this summer when everything else felt so rotten and disappointing.
