What do you want people to remember about you?

I am just sitting here thinking-yes I know that is dangerous lol. But I was just sitting here thinking about all the trials we go through in life and what is important to people these days, IT seems so far from what I really want out of life. All I really want is to be able to pay our bills, take the kids to a vacation now and again and just be happy and content and raise our children to the best of our ability. I do not want all this wordly stuff, do not get me wrong I like shiny things and big things but when I am gone that STUFF will not matter to me and when I am dead and gone what do I really want people to remember about me. Alot of times these days many people want to be remembered as being successful or owning all these THINGS. All I really want when I am gone is to be remembered as a devoted wife and loving mother. That i did my best and raised my kids to the best of my abilities. That I love the LOrd and tried to follow him. I have stumbled alot following him but I do try. What would YOU want people to remember about you??? IT is sad that this day and age many people miss out on the joys of parenthood all because they are so selfish that they think children will hinder them. They really miss out on the blessings. Yes, sometimes I do say or think wow what my husband and I could do if we didn't have kids or if we did not have so many but wow what we would miss out on!!!!!!!!!!! GOd gave me these kids, dunno why he chose me but I am so glad he did. Yes times do get hard and sometimes I get weary but I would not change my life for one split second. GOd has blessed me with so much even though my family has little we have all we need. I do not know what the Lord has in store for me in the future,weather it be more kids(if that is the case he better be talking to hubby lol) or just to raise the kids we have to his glory. I just always want to be able to stand back and see just how trully blessed I am. I have a WONDERFUL husband who has done so much for me, more than many people know. He is my rock, my prince charming. I have 5 wonderful blessings!!!! What more could a woman ask for???

Been a little while since I posted

Fist I wanted to share this I found at another blog that i love to read, It had me in tears.

A Poem for the busy Mother


Mother, O mother, come shake out your cloth!
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
Sew on a button and make up the bed
.........Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
.........She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking!

Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue
..........(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
..........(Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo).
The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew
And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo
But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue?
..........Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.)

Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep.

~~~~Ruth Hulburt Hamilton

That really hit home for me cause I just feel life is passing by so quickly and I am missing so much, the kids are growing up so fast. WE are just so busy these days. I long for a simplier time. I hope that happens soon or I may bust lol. Things are going okay here, Our baby boy has his first two that has finally made it's way through . He will be going to see the allergist soon to see if he has asthma., He is still spitting/throwing up terribly! All the other kiddos are doing good. Our youngest daughter was sick and still has a cough but is better. Our twin sons are just boys, they have been working with daddy during the day at his own business so they love that. He bought them some boots and is paying them so they are really happy about that. Our two girls went to cheerleading camp this past saturday and loved it, they will be cheering with the cheerleaders at one of the games in august. So that is pretty cool. WE are slowly starting back doing some school. I just sometimes wonder if they are learning all they need to be learning. Well I am tired and I still have the babies laundry to do so I am off. Talk to you all later

My wonderful parents kept all 5 kids this weekend so hubby and I could have some time together , it was great!!! It was nice just to be with him! WE did alot of laughing. We went to alot of different places and went out to eat and then went to the race . Sunday morning we slept and then went to get groceries together BY OURSELVES-no little ones saying I want this and this lol. But then after grocery shopping we picked them up. So we had a nice weekend. It was real refreshing to say the least. It is so important to take care of the husband/wife relationship as well . But boy I think we were both ready to see the kids . I don't see how some parents can be away from their kids too long- when the twins went to camp with the church I was a worry wart lol. Anyway, just wanted to update you all and our baby boy will be going to a allergist August 8 to check for asthma. I am just so happy with my laugh no matter how tired it makes me!!! I look at my kids and just know how blessed my husband and I really are. WE may not be rich with money but we have so many other riches. Have a blessed day.

BTW- you all please check out the make up I am selling on my side bar_____________>>>>>>>

Busy Day and A WONDERFUL Hubby!

First i want to say I had half this written out and my baby boy decided he wanted to type too and pushed a key and everything was gone-UGH! Okay so this morning I took Levi to the doctor to talk about everything that has been going on. First she said his trachea is fine, that it had no masses or anything and that everything was okay with it. SO that is good news, But we still have to talk about his heavy breathing,wheezing,spitting/throwing up,and such. She said she wants him to see a allergist to see if he has asthma and I think she is sending him to another doctor but not sure what kind. She said she wants to find out about the respirtory part first and then worry about the stomache issue cause it may just be the respirtory issue causing all of it. SO we have to go to these doctors and then see what they say. She also put him on a medicine to dry him up, like his runny nose and the drainage that he has. She said this may help the reflux too. So that is what he is on.So really it is still a wait and see kind of thing but at least his trachea is okay. Then after I took him I came home and got one of my older sons to take him to the doctor/. The one that has been diagnosed bipolar with ADHD. WE have been having a rough time with him still and my mama finally saw what I was talking about when she went with me to get the kids pictures taken at SEars.Anyway of course he uped one of his meds and such. I am getting so frustrated with all of that also. So after that appt. I came home and got my youngest daughter cause she wanted to go to wal-mart with me and went and got all the meds filled. During this time hubby was keeping the kids that were not with me. Speaking of him he is so wonderful. He cleaned the house while I was doing all of this and even did extra stuff. He is trully amazing. Wondeful man he is!!! SO anyway, needless to say I am very tired but have to find some energy to try and walk tonight cause I HAVE to lose this weight. Anyway, just wanted to update you all. Have a blessed night

MEAN MOMMY!!! LOL< got this from another blog

This is what I have been hearing from the kids constantly. YOu are just mean! LOL, I tell them well that is good cause that means I am doing my job.

Is Your Mom Mean?

We had the meanest mother in the whole world! While other kids ate candy for breakfast, we had to have cereal, eggs, and toast.

When others had a Pepsi and a Twinkie for lunch, we had to eat sandwiches.

And you can guess our mother fixed us a dinner that was different from what other kids had, too.

Mother insisted on knowing where we were at all times. You'd think we were convicts in a prison.

She had to know who our friends were, and what we were doing with them.

She insisted that if we said we would be gone for an hour, we would be gone for an hour or less.

We were ashamed to admit it, but she had the nerve to break the Child Labor Laws by making us work. We had to wash the dishes, make the beds, learn to cook, vacuum the floor, do laundry, empty the trash and all sorts of cruel jobs. I think she would lie awake at night thinking of more things for us to do.

She always insisted on us telling the truth the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. By the time we were teenagers, she could read our minds. Then, life was really tough!

Mother wouldn't let our friends just honk the horn when they drove up. They had to come up to the door so she could meet them.

While everyone else could date when they were 12 or 13, we had to wait.

Because of our mother we missed out on lots of things other kids experienced. None of us have ever been caught vandalizing other's property or ever arrested for any crime. It was all her fault.

Now that we have left home, we are all educated, honest adults. We are doing our best to be mean parents just like Mom was. I think that is what's wrong with the world today. It just doesn't have enough mean moms

Been a while

I know I have not blogged in a while but I have been preoccupied with life. Sometimes life gets in the way but what can ya do. I do check out all your blogs or shall I say many of yours that check my out.Anyway, the kids are doing pretty good. Sunday night our baby boy threw up constantly and our daughter started breaking out with what looked like chicken pox. Still not sure what it is. I am taking our baby boy to the doctor monday morning next week to talk to his doctor about his spitting up and wheezing/ I think he has reflux like my youngest daughter. WE went to our local fireworks show last Saturday and it was pretty good. I love seeing my children amazed at stuff. My husband is working alot these days so I really miss him. I just love him to pieces. I have got to get the kids back in a routine of doing some sort of school... seriously. Just hard when all the neighborhood kids come here. Last week I finished reading Created to be His Help Meet . That book is awsome and I am thinking of reading it again. WEll I am really tired so this is all the blogging and rambling I can do. I have not gotten much sleep this week so I am pretty tired and I walk at least 3 miles a day , today I walked almost 5 so that helps me be pretty tired at night as well. Good night, sleep tight!
