I have come to the conclusion though that through this I will learn patience and I have already learned that no matter what I will always put my little family and this gospel first. They are the only things that matter and I see that more and more everyday. I know that without Rich and I paying an honest tith and doing the right things that we would not be here now. I know we are incredibly blessed everyday, because we do what we need to. I am reminded everyday just how important this church is and how I need to try that much harder to make sure that I have my family forever:)
So much has changed the last 2 years, geez even the last 6 months. I have to say that I don't know what I would do without Rich. He is so strong, and such a rock for me in tough times. And there have been some lousy days these last 2 years. But he deals with the days from day to day and does it better than anyone that I know could do it. I don't know of anyone that I can think of right now that could even come close to trying to do what he does everyday. And I want him to know that I appreciate everything he does! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't wonder how I can help him that day, whether it be just take him food so he can eat or a treat! He is absolutely amazing. We just had our best month ever at the shop and it is all because of him and his hard work and dedication to supporting his family. Love him so much:)
Taylee, Traceson and Macrae have all had a birthdays so far this year. Taylee is now in the "double digits" so she says and is 10, Traceson is 8 and getting baptized soon and Macrae is 6. Raegan wishes it was her birthday everyday but she will be 4 in November.
The boys both had their best friends from school last year move away this summer:( they were pretty sad, but hopefully this school year brings more friends for them to enjoy. Taylee has a BFF named Casey and the two of them are so sweet. I love her being friends with her. They actually just bought a house up the road from us so they will be our neighbors in a month and Taylee can not wait:) Neither can I, I absolutley adore Casey's mom. She is just amazing.
I am in the primary presidency and I love it. I love the little kids and the wide array of personalities they all have. Other than that fear I have of speaking in sacrament, I am so thankful for this calling:)
This was Easter Sunday 2012, yeah I am a little behind! But hey better late than never right!
So anyhow, We are so incredibly blessed and feel it everyday and I know where all these blessings come from. I am so lucky to have these little monkeys and my wonderful husband FOREVER and I cherish everyday, "stress filled and not" that I get to spend with them:) They are my life and I can't imagine it without all of them. I am so excited for this next little monkey to join in the chaos. I can't believe it has been 3 months already! 6 more till I get to meet this precious angel:) can't wait!!
