Lately I've been trying to do the small things in life that may bring the spirit into my home. I know that I'm far away from being perfect but I figured that maybe by doing the smaller things in life (listening to church music, reading scriptures more often, etc) that I may possibly improve upon my imperfections.

I've started to realize more of what truly matters in life, and maybe that comes from just getting older, being married, and having children. Granted I do only have one child right now, I do think that even ONE child changes your perspective on life and your future decisions for your life.

I've started to also come to terms that I don't need to worry about what everyone else thinks... It's about what I think, the lord thinks, and what my family thinks. I'm sometimes shy with my "spiritual side" because I often feel silly saying how I truly feel. Sometimes I feel as though what I am saying sounds... what's the word.... maybe..... dumb? ha... Or I'm worried that by me saying that, Suzy or George will find me to be a weird person. (mind you "suzy and george" or not real people that i know) ha. Anyways, I didn't want to come off to others as being "un normal" or odd for expressing my "spiritual side". Now.. I don't really care as much as to what others perspective of me is.

My "me" time is generally in the shower each & every day... it's my quiet time. Thats where I tend to pray and talk to my heavenly father, and also to focus on life and what needs to be done that day.

I'm grateful for so much in my life.

I'm grateful that I've found such an amazing partner to spend my life with. I'm eternally grateful for such a Loyal partner. I feel that there is so many people out there who are having such hard times in there marriage and who have had a spouse who has had an affair. I'm so blessed to not even have to worry about that.

I'm grateful that the Lord sent me my husband at such a perfect point in my life. He truly has shown me the light of the Lord.

I'm grateful to have a job... and that we are able to support ourselves.

I'm so happy to be a mother... it truly is an amazing blessing and my son brings me more joy than I could have ever imagined... quite possibly more than my nightly treats.. *just kidding*

I'm grateful for my family. That includes my husband, son-- as well as my parents & siblings.. and also to my husbands parents and siblings. They are huge examples to me.

I'm happy & grateful to be alive and well.
