Taking in the blessings

I just lately have been trying in to take in all my blessings and try not to get so stressed! My husband has been on second shift this week and I actually think I like it cause he is here during the day to help with discipline and that kind of thing. He is thinking of starting his own company in the next year or so so he can be home more and have his own hours. I love my husband and he really does try to do things for the family. He is a hard worker! I hope he knows how much he means to me. Okay enough with that, I know alot of you are going okay okay okay :) Then there are my children, even with all the fighting and mood swings they have they really are good kids. I just hope I am doing a good job with them. And I also hope more than anything they are happy and know that I love them. I have the greatest parents in the world and have a wonderful sister. We were not close growing up and I actually sometimes wondered if we would ever seem to be anywhere near close but I think over the years things happened and now I think we believe alot of the same things and have actually gotten super close. CLose enough that I can tell her almost anything, well probably really anything. So I guess I am blessed in that way too. She was there for my birth of my last child and I will never forget that cause she stayed for like 11 hours just to be there. AS I get older( will be 27 the 28th of this month!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH))) things that matter really do change. While there are things I would love to have , these wordly things we cannot take with us when we go. When I leave this earth if I could have my say on what I was remembered for it would not be what I had or what I did but just that I was a good mom and a devoted wife. That would make me the happiest women ! And also that I followed what God told me and that I loved God with all my heart. SO as the days go by I am just trying to take them all in.

Hi Tiffany, I found your link at Homeliving Helper so thought I would come by and say hi. I have five too, the youngest is a 3 month old who also wants to be held and eat constantly!! :-) My hat's off to you, homeschooling full time. Right the kids are all home for summer and we are doing 3 hours of summer school just for fun/ review, and it's ALL I can manage!! :-) I'm glad you're having fun with the kids and appreciating all the moments. They DO grow up so fast!! :-)
