The house is clean and quite. Well, The kitchen and front room are clean . I have a cold Dr.Pepper and the radio on. Rob is grocery shopping with Lexie and Katie is watching the Disney channel! Lottie is napping in her warm little bed. I have dinner planned. My mother in law is here visiting. I love that she is her. She knits little things for the girls and makes me feel comfortable about myself and my house and life. I feel content in this moment. I don't always feel this way so I have to enjoy the moments when they come.

I am a child of God

Tonight I was reading a book to my sweet girls as I was putting them to bed and the words in the book touched my spirit so much and it explains in such simple words how I feel.

I am a child of god so he shares his love with me. I am happy when I share with others
I know god listens to me because I am his child
I am a child of God and he sees me as I can become
I know I am a child of God because he surrounds me with people who love me and keep me safe
Because I am a child of God I can learn about his world and share what I learn with others
I am a child of God and his angles watch over me
I am a Child of God and I can love creatures- both great and small
Because I am God's child he shows me the way to my dreams
I am a child of god and he wants me to choose friends who will help me climb higher
Because God loves and cares for me I can learn to care for others
I am God's child and he has given me a wonderful world to explore
I am a child of God and he gives me talents to share with others to make his world more beautiful
I can be brave and strong and I am never alone
I am a child of God and Jesus is my Brother.
They know my name and they love me.

-Wendy and Michael Nelsen

Today I feel such a strong connection to my faith. I find such comfort in knowing that I have a Heavenly father and a savior that died for ME. I find comfort in the guidance the church gives us. I saw first hand last night as my little family sat down for Family home evening. I talked about compassion and I read a story and after I asked Katie what compassion meant and she said caring and loving others and expecting nothing in return. My heart melted. God loves me and he challenges me when he knows I need it and he comforts me when I need it too. I pray that everyone can feel a connection to god, you don't have to be Mormon or Jewish or Muslim. Just find a special place in your heart for the one that loves you unconditionslly and that created you. Faith is s gift you can give your self and others believe what you believe and never feel ashamed abut it

Today my heart is full of things I love doing for my family. I love cooking yummy food for them and watching them enjoy it. I love doing laundry and knowing that my family has clean clothes and fresh towels . I love cleaning and knowing that my family feels loved and comfortable in our home. I love tucking my sweet angle babies in bed at night and then after they are asleep I go in and kiss their sweet soft little plump cheeks . I whisper how much I love them and how they make everyday worth it.

Today I'm tired and I have all these things in my head that I want to do. I even have an idea book so I can write them down. For the most part I want to finish decorating for valentines day and I have this urge to be a wonderful cook. I just got a new cookbook by a woman named Ree Durmmond, she is also known as The pioneer woman, she has a blog and I love her. I have all these fantastical ideas about making steak and amazing mashed potatoes and having Rob and the kiddos fawn over me and my amazing cooking. But I'm pretty sure I will make something blah and they will look at my like I'm trying to make them eat dirt.

It's nice out today, After I got Katie from school we drove down to the lake ( Utah lake) and it was mostly frozen but so beautiful. The funny part of the whole thing is that while we were driving past the lake on this yucky dirt road, there were a few other cars. A young couple had pulled over and got out of their car and decided the lake was frozen enough to walk out onto. The strong man of the couple decided that he could glide and do twirls on the ice. As this was happening another car drove by and a elderly man was driving and he decided that he should pull over and reprimand them for being on the ice, they both looked down at there feet and shuffled off the ice. I laughed so hard I almost wet my self and the girls were looking at my like I had finally lost my mind! Anywho I'm so happy it's Friday and I can't wait for Rob to come home and remind me that I'm a person, not just a tired mom, thought I love being a tired mom :)

" When all the world is spinning round
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down"

Dear Sweetie Pie,
I love you so much and I wanted to say thank you
for always being my anchor and for letting me be a red balloon!
