Do any of you have a couple dresses or skirts that just barely too short?

I've been needing a skirt extender for ages now and I've gotta tell you, these extenders from Peekaboo-Chic are fabulous. For $30 bucks you can pull out all those skirts that have been on "the verge" and start wearing them again!!! Check them out. A great way to make everything modest! Also find them on Facebook here.
I read the greatest article the other day. It was talking about how when people get lost they tend to walk in circles. Have you heard the old saying? Anyway, a german psychologist wanted to scientifically determine if there was something behind the old saying. So he did an experiment. He took participants to a large forest area and to the Sahara desert and used a global positioning system to track where they went. They had no compass or any other device. Instructions to them were simple: walk in a straight line in the direction indicated. Dr. Souman said, "Some of them walked on a cloudy day, with the sun hidden behind the clouds and with no reference points in view... they all walked in circles, with several of them repeatedly crossing their own path without noticing it". Other participants walked while the sun was shining, with faraway reference points in view. "These... followed an almost perfectly straight course." Without visible landmarks, human beings tend to walk in circles!
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf says, "Without spiritual landmarks, mankind wanders as well. Without the word of God, we walk in circles. Spiritual landmarks are indispensable for keeping us on the straight and narrow path. They give clear direction as to the way we should travel-- but only if we recognize them and walk toward them. If we refuse to be guided by these landmarks they become meaningless, decorative masses that have no purpose but to break up the flatness of the horizon."
I thought how many times have I attended church, read my scriptures and said my prayers with no thought to what I was actually doing? I have all these fabulous landmarks to keep me on course and sometimes, probably more times than not, I end up walking right past them without noticing! Without recognizing them and walking toward them the "landmarks become meaningless". My goal this week is to have purpose. To pray with real intent. To read my scriptures and actually read them. I want to know what my Heavenly Father wants for me and I most certainly want to know how I can help Him. This life is about progressing and I am so thankful to know that I don't have to do it alone!
