Who needs aluminum foil?
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
I have been a little absent lately but I've had a lot of time to think about my life. About a week ago Moroni and I celebrated something kind of big. 8 years of our fairy tale marriage. On that day I was sick, tired and all I wanted to do was make him dinner(it was a Sunday after all). As I struggled through dinner I realized something. I didn't have an aluminum foil! You would think this would not normally be a big deal HOWEVER, for this dish I was making it was critical. I got so upset that I started to cry and Moroni of course being so sweet said "It didn't matter and he didn't need this meal. He had me and that's all that matters." It's like my world stopped for a second and I looked at him and realized he was right. I looked at this face that I had been looking at for almost 10 years and I knew that I was blessed. Blessed more than I deserve. Moroni is truly such a wonderful husband, friend and Father. I look at him and realize that what we share really is all that matters. So I stopped crying, I came up with a different meal and I am just so happy that in all the stress in my life, I have the one thing that matters most. I married my best friend.

...will you come visit me?"
Why are kids so cute?? We were driving back home today and Ellie wanted to know if I would come visit her when she had a baby? It was so sweet and cute I had to laugh. Savannah then asked if I would visit her too? I let them both know that I would not only visit them but I would stay with them as long as they wanted. A huge cheer erupted in my van. I also made it clear that I do not want to be a grandma for a very long time and that they need to be 30 and very happily married first:).
I LOVE having our girls!!

We were so blessed to have my awesome oldest brother David come and spend some quality time with our family. He is a great brother and a fun Uncle. The girls just love him and it was fun to have my big brother around. We decided to show Dave a good time by taking him bowling.

Despite the fact that I have been sick, life around me has not slowed down. This week is proof of that. Monday the girls started out the week with some classic water fun. We bought a new sprinkler for the flowers and the girls just had to try it out.
I know...she just gets cutter!!

So day three of COLD. I am pretty sure I have not been this sick and tired in a long time. I continue to whine in hopes that it will help...:). Mostly today I am thinking about the fact that I am missing my Kindergartners last field trip. I was never able to go on one all year. I promised her for weeks that no matter what I would be there. Well, life and COLDS happen and there goes the fun. I started to have a pity party until I realized something...I am very blessed. Our family is very blessed. For example: Moroni stayed up with me all night last night as I was sick and couldn't sleep. I was so grateful for him just being there. He got me water, rubbed my back and just made sure I had enough tissues. He got up this morning and decided to take the day off and go on the field trip with Ellie. We told Ellie and she was so excited and I was so grateful. I then spent the morning with our two girls and they kept checking in on me too. Savannah would hand me a tissue and Madelyn kept coming up to me going "Mommy, okay?" Then she would kiss different parts of my body so I could feel better. "Mommy, okay?" I was also blessed with a few phone calls of friends/family who care enough to see how I am doing. I was so grateful and felt so loved. Lunch came and I got a phone call from my sweetie "Mommy, how are you feeling?" Ellie my sweet little girl called during her lunch on her field trip to see how I was.
So as the cold keeps going I am left all warm inside by the love of those around me. It also might be the fever kicking in ;-).

I think a lot of times people run "hot" and "cold." I can tell sometimes when I have run into someone and they are having a good day or a bad one. This past weekend was one where I was "hot" and "cold" A LOT. I was "hot" about the fact that we had a three day weekend. I love it when we get a whole extra day as a family. I was "cold" about my ever growing to do list. I was "hot" about the great food and fun I had on Memorial day. I was "cold" when it all had to end and today had to come. I was "hot" in knowing that we are now in June. We celebrate our anniversary this month and Moroni always plans something sweet. But mostly I am just cold...because for the fifth June in a row I have a wicked cold that kept me up all night. So here is to all things "hot" and "cold."
