It's a new dawn...It's a new day...It's a new life

Wow, so much has happened in this last 4 or so months that has really tugged at my heart. I know everyone goes through "stuff" and I know all things happen for a reason, sometimes I just don't understand (ok let's face it, alot of times I don't understand) and sometimes it hurts alot and sometimes it hurts just a little... but through it all there are those things that also bring so much joy and help us to grow. I hope these things have helped me to grow... maybe to grow a little more understanding... maybe grow a little more patient.... maybe to learn a little more about eternal things and how important they are to fight for and hang on to.

My kids are awesome... I truly have the best kids in the world... and that truly includes the best daughter-in-law as well. My husband is awesome... 27 years and counting all the way to forever. I really do have the best family in the world.... parents and siblings, sister- in-laws, brother-in-laws, and parent-in-laws and nieces and nephews.... Oh and then there are the friends.... what would a person do in this life without friends.

So to all of you... thanks for your support these last few months... through, another Stake Girls Camp, sending off my missionary boy, helping my broken hearted boy, new insulin pump, financial woahs, taxes, weddings, illnesses, my baby turing 16, missing my Utah/D.C. kids, bears, emotional struggles, obsessions, addictions, fire, flood, earthquake... ha, ha, ha.... OK, getting a little carried away, LOL, was it really that bad.... NO!

The good news is... It's a new dawn, a new day and a new chance for all the important things!

My Heavenly Father is in charge, thank goodness for that! I am his daughter and he loves me.

I know those tough times are really stinkers but you are still one awesome--- lady, mother of the ward, and mom to your kiddos. Just look at all of this as a learning process that isn't always easy. Just remember that you are always loved!!!
