Hello, I’m Afton

Want to learn about my values?

Starting Point:  These PostIt Notes Below

I collected “everything” from those I love and organised a place to put these little treasures.  Sometimes I put my personal notes about everywhere and anywhere.

I preserved all these so you might know what (this rather ordinary woman) thought about our Eternal Family, my precious husband, our children, and that which thus follows.

No Academy Award here; yet, for more important!

What Did I Perserve

From the smallest post-it note to published documents

My Loving Husband

Paul was the photographer.  8mm movies and 35mm slides (go to Dr. Google to read about the “old days“)

g

Internet

I asked my eldest son – Paul Jr – to publish my Personal History (meaning provide photocopies), to his siblings.  Well, he explained that he could do better. He was to use this new (to me anyway) methodology to reach more and more of my descendants.

Sticky Notes Taped on inside cover of a Folder

You see, it appears, my method was to place my thoughts in any folder that was open on my desk at the time.

Love of Husband

Paul

Near or apart, you are always in my heart

Scripture

D & C 6:23

Did I not speak peace to y 18:34-36our mind concerning this matter?  What greater witness can you have than from God?  

See D & C

Lighting Up Truth

Being in the Kingdom of God requires that we follow Him. We follow Jesus when by keeping the commandments of Heavenly Father at Baptism.  We stand as a witness to God at all times, in all things, and in all places

Mission Home Experience

I almost forget to show this entry I entered on a diary paper and then placed it in one of my folders

The image you can see to the right. Since it might be difficult to read, this is the transcript.

At the Mission Home when Sister Thunderbull and I were doing dishes together, she turned to me and said:

“I didn’t know it was supposed to be like this!”

I asked her what she meant.

She then told me:

“All my life I have been yelled at, hit hard and told I was bad. Then I come here in the Mission  Home and every is kind. This no yelling at each other – I feel love for the first time in my life!”

I put my arms around her and let her know that I loved her and was proud of her.

Original Note

Here you will see again how I would record my experiences.  Oh yes, I have my system and clearly it seemed to have worked because you can now see the entry.

Editors Note:  Marth Afton was genuine in her attention and love of people regardless of how each may have presented to her.  We do not know anything about the sister mentioned in the anicdote yet we can conclude her life was enriched by the attention this dear Afton Harris Felt reached out to her.

To know my values is to understand who you could be
