Thank you Father

I am feeling very blessed. I have the most precious little girl and a loving husband, a good home and food to eat. I have been blessed to be raised in the Gospel with knowledge of why I am here. As frustrated as I get sometimes with the stages of my life, ( I was interrupted in typing this to clean up Jaylie's potty accident, poop and pee, and Maddox's pee accident... evidence of my frustrating moments) I am grateful for the little troubles I have, and the lack of big troubles.

I absolutely adore this little angel Heavenly Father sent to me. She is spunky and funny, tender and loving. She melts my heart and makes me laugh. I love her voice, wit, charm and giggles. I love the smell of her hair after bath time as she snuggles on my lap. I always imagined myself having 5 boys, but I cannot imagine that now. She is perfect for me.

I married my best friend. He frustrates me, teases me, makes me laugh and he understands me when I cry. He makes me feel beautiful and special. He is hard working, supportive, and I don't know anyone who can liven up a moment better than Josh.
It's like what Garth Brooks said, "I thank God for unanswered prayers." We don't know what is best for us, we only think we do. I have been given the best, and I thank Him everyday.

You are sweet! It is good to remember that we only have simple trials and so many people face worse things. I have to be reminded of this often....so thank you for reminding me. I love your family too!
