Life is Good
I don't talk about serious things a lot on this blog and I usually don't talk about my Faith, but I do want to say how grateful I am for the peace that the Gospel brings to my life.
My good friend's baby girl passed away this week and we attended the funeral yesterday. It was beautiful. Though it is extremely sad that she is no longer here in this mortal life, I'm grateful to know that she is with Heavenly Father and Jesus and will be reunited with her family one day. I will probably never understand why life can be so hard, but I do know that the Lord has a plan and that comforts me.
On another note, I know I'm just about the last person to post about this but I loved seeing Nie Nie on Oprah.
I thought she looked radiant and happy and her story was so inspiring. I love how much she loves doing the little things for her kids like making lunches and getting them ready for school. It killed me to see how she still can't hold them, even though they want her to. I have just been more grateful than ever this week for my sweet kids.
The blog has been on the back burner as I've spent more time cuddling and reading books with my chubby baby and playing with my older kids. I realized as I drove to pick up the carpool for the zillianth time, that I have a good life. I have a funny, generous husband who slaves at work every day so I can stay home and go to lunch and hit the mall and drive kids around and do the mama thing that I love so much. I have fantastic friends and a great family and I am one lucky girl.
Finally, Since I'm celebrating my one year blogging anniversary this month (I know I've already brought that up--but can you ever celebrate enough?) I have updated the blog a little bit. I decided to put my favorite posts on my sidebar. Since basically just my mom and Ashley were reading in the beginning, most are from my early days but some are just posts that I really like for one reason or another. There are sixteen. Does that make me self absorbed? That's okay--look at the title of my blog. I can relate to this:
