"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."

19 years ago
19 years ago today I graduated from high school. Crazy. It really doesn't seem like it has been that long. Then, I think of all that has happened since then and it really takes 19 years to fit it all in. Still C-R-A-Z-Y! I felt such excitement and such nervousness about the future, similar to how K feels this year as she finished middle school and heads to high school. There was no way of knowing the joys and sorrows that were in front of me. Thank goodness. Life is a journey that would be ruined with too much awareness of the future. We grow step by step. If I saw 19 years ago what was ahead of me, I wouldn't have been strong enough and I would have just crawled under a rock. But, the Savior gives us the strength we need when we need it. So cool. :)
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.
