It's Sunday afternoon and I have to admit, I am surprised that no one has commented on my last post! Of course, people are busy but I am a yellow after all! I have changed my settings so anyone can comment now, so be nice!

I stayed home with Jake from church as I had a sinus headache this morning and didn't want to go to with it. I am feeling much better now though, so that is happy news.

I just wanted to say how happy I feel. I love my life. I love my beautiful husband who adores me. How lucky I am to have him. I am so proud of my kids and they are all getting such good grades. They play so well together and most of the time, our home feels very happy.

I am so glad I can run now with little discomfort in my foot. I am so grateful that I have a house that is a good one even if it isn't what I really want. My dream home is is a yellow, cape cod style with at least 5 bedrooms and a big wrap-around porch.

I am very blessed in so many ways. I wish my mom were around to talk to. I think she always worried about our (her 9 kids) future happiness. I know she knows but I would love to talk to her face to face and ask her about her life that I never really knew when I was a bratty teenager and selfish young adult (I really was). I never got the chance to know her as a fellow mother and friend. We didn't always get along but I am so much like her, I wish I could have known her better.

I love the gospel. I love how easy it is to teach to my children. It all makes sense. Thank heavens for simple things.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and we'll talk more later!
