First: I am now on face book. I don't know how to do ANYTHING yet except post comments. So, to all you people who are kidnapping me, pillow fighting me, and sending things to me... Um... Thanks?... I think... Unless I'm supposed to be upset because it's not a good thing... Then Stop!
Second: I am REALLY tired of being sick! So, I would like all of those weird scientist-type people that are trying to prove that all this COLD weather is proof of global WARMING... to cut it out, and focus on more important things... like a cure for the common cold!
Third: I was pretty grouchy yesterday, after grocery shopping for almost three hours and loading every thing into the van on my own then driving home in the cold, nasty, rain with Rose and Sarah. Sarah was trying to cheer me up.
Sarah: Well, at least it's natures car wash...
Me: (confused look)
Sarah: What? I was just trying to look on the bright side.
Me: Sarah, I'm sore, my hand is swollen (still recovering and all), it is cold! It is wet! I am tired. It is dark and rainy and dreary outside. There is no bright side!
Sarah: MOM you KNOW there is ALWAYS a bright side... seeee!
(I looked where she was pointing. In the the opposite lane of traffic... EVERY car had it's headlights on. I couldn't help but smile and all three of us broke out laughing!)
So take a little lesson from my Sarah..."There is ALWAYS a bright side!"
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
