"It isn't what you have,
or who you are,
or where you are,
or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.
It is what you think about."

So, last week (on Thursday), I was finally feeling better somewhat physically and emotionally and I chose to use some of that energy to make a pie. I enjoy baking, but I don't do it often, usually when I "have" to. When I asked CK what he wanted me to bake last week, I was given an extensive list of options. I decided to make Thursday my baking day-then, I might be able to make it through the list! Also, as I love traditions, I envisioned my children looking forward each week to "baking day" and wondering what mom was going to make.
So far so good. C just got home from school-so excited to see what I made, loving the smell as he walked in and so happy when he saw the pans of cinnamon rolls. :) I am excited to take this time to do something for myself, for my family, and for others. I am excited to be able to share our baking day treats with our neighbors, or those that are lonely, or those that I want to get to know, or with dear friends, "just because." I am never sure how long traditions will last, but I am excited to have this one, at least for a while.
I am a happily married LDS SAHM of six kids (17-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy, 12 year-old girl, 9-year-old boy, a 3-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old boy). I love life. I am truly blessed to know my Savior, Jesus Christ. I desire to spend my whole life in service to Him. I love my children with all my heart and dedicate myself to being the best Mommy I can be...it is a daily challenge, but one I cherish.
