Spring is here!

It has been beautiful here in Utah the last few days! I dont know what it is about the warmth, but it sure does seem to liven my spirits. I love soaking up a little sunshine and enjoying the outdoors!

Life has been pretty busy lately and I am having a hard time remembering to slow down and enjoy it. I am looking forward to long summer days playing with my kiddos and taking a break from the hussle and bussle of life.

I have gotten way behind again with my blogging, so much for that New Years Resolution ;).

For my own family history... the last few months have been busy and stressful. Courts job has sometimes been a little rocky and it has gotten us thinking about long term goals and really thinking about where we want to be in many areas of our life. Financially speaking this bad economy sure makes it hard to raise 4 kids at times. But as usual, as trials arise in our marriage I am continually reminded that if we keep our covenants with the Lord he will bless us and provide away. I am reminded that money is JUST money, do we need it to live, yes, but does it make up who were are or bring true happiness, absolutly not. I am so grateful my husband has a job, that I have the privilege of being a stay-at-home mother, we have a roof over our head, food to eat, clothes to wear, cars to drive, and MOST importantly we have each other and the gospel. If you think of "riches" in terms of blessings, I am one of the richest people I know. I have wonderful friends and family, a loving husband, 4 darling kids, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the center and focus of my life... I am RICH in blessings!
