life at the present

Has it been awhile? Yes.
I'm sure you all understand, but my life feels a little hectic right now.
Between juggling school, work, church and playing wifey, I have no time.
I feel like I work from before sun up to after sun down.
Anyways, I'm sure many of you are in the same boat.
And I know there are a lot of people that have much more on their plates, so I don't feel like there is room for complaint.
Life is good.
You gain strength, courage and confidecne by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do.- Eleanor Roosevelt

Have you ever felt like you haven't accomplished anything extremely significant? Sometimes, I look at my life and ask...

"What have I really accomplished?"

I feel like I have accomplished things, but things that may seem small or insignificant to others.
However, I need to keep in mind

That which grows the slowest last the longest.

What we are doing on a daily basis determines the kind of person we ultimately become.

Although I am not a mother yet, I'm preparing myself to be a mother. I'm new at this whole "wife" thing, but I'm working on that too, because I want to be a great wife. I understand that this is what Heavenly Father wants me to do.

I was once told that being a wife and mother is the most un-thanked-job. But silently, women do it. So for all of those women out there, remember you are doing the most important work on this earth.

"True progess quietly and persistently moves along without notice."
-St. Francis of Assisi

one flaw in women.

One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men.....
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in..
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or email you
to show how much they care about you.

They heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.

However, if there is one flaw in women, it is that they forget their worth.

Don't forget your worth ladies....

Happy Monday.

The other day, I was driving home from work. I had a bad day at work. I'm sure you all understand that. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with all the demands of life.

I turned on a good tune.

I looked out the window and I saw some birds flying.... that's it. But ya know what? For some reason, that helped remind me that God was aware of me.

Silly? Maybe.

Insignificant? Maybe. But not to me.

I knew he was with me. I knew he understood what I was feeling in that moment.

I know God is everywhere.

You just have to keep your eyes open... you'll see.

Happy Monday.

I am Thankful.

I found this list someone made, it has given me a lot to think about...

I am Thankful

  1. For the wife who says it’s hot dogs tonight, because she is home with me, and not out with someone else.
  2. For the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato, because he is home with me and not out at the bars.
  3. For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes, because it means she is home, not on the streets.
  4. For the taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.
  5. For the mess to clean after a party, because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
  6. For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
  7. For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine.
  8. For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
  9. For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.
  10. For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and I have been blessed with transportation.
  11. For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm. For the lady behind me in church who sings off key, because it means I can hear.
  12. For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  13. For the weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.
  14. For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means I am alive!

What are you thankful for?
