I am so blessed...

I have spent the day at church. It has been a couple of weeks since I have been there. Jake was sick, I was sick, I went to a different ward where Mark was talking in their church...

As I was sitting in Sacrament meeting I partook of the sacrament and felt the Spirit so strong. I kept thinking of all my blessings. I will just name a few here.

I really have the best husband in the world. He is so wonderful in doing EVERYTHING he can to support me and the kids. It is more then just getting up and going to work too. Although we appreciate that very much. He gets up with the boys and gets them ready for bed. (He does it even though he doesn't want to have to do it) He plays Yug-e-oh with Brendon. Brendon just switched from Pokemon to Yug-e-oh. Mark researched them and learned out to play so that he could have a special bond with Brendon. He does whatever the kids enjoy. What a great thing this is. Can you imagine doing whatever hobby your child does. I need to do more with the kids... LOL

He does so many things for me. In addition to helping with kids n s omany ways he makes sure my needs are met. He listens to me when I am frustrated, he makes dinner at times. Yesterday he made lunch then came in and got me a diet coke and ice and poured it all for me. He always does the little things that are so sweet.

He is always trying to ng for our family and others and is so giving. He loves to help take care of others. Or at least he likes the feeling when it is all done.

This part took longer then I thought so I will write more about my blessings because I actually could go on forever about my loving husband. I sure am glad I get to spend FOREVER with him. I love you Mark!

Well thanks for all the warm welcomes to bloggers world. Today has been a pretty crazy day We have been trying to get medical equipment for Jake. After a full year I was able to get just over half of it. Now we will keep fighting for the rest. The big thing though we finally got an upgrade for his wheelchair.

He has been sitting in a wheelchair that was way too small for him. It has done some damage to his neck because it pushed him out ot the chair and he was slouched forward. We got a walker and a stander for him too. I can't wait till we get the new wheels we ordered for the wheelchair as he will be able to push his own chair. He has practiced on his friend Adams chair and does pretty well with it. We are supposed to get that in a couple of weeks.

Ok my arm has been twisted....

So I have had a little pressure from people that I need to start a blog, I kept thinking one day... but my friend Lisa kept encouraging me to do so. My dh Mark did as well. Lisa actually set it all up for me. LOL So here I am. I spent yesterday reading many blogs of people from the triple dueces in Iraq. I appreciate their blogs and the things they do for our Country. I love staying home with my kiids on a daily basis. It is difficult at times to do it but I am so grateful for the oppurtunity to do so. I have 2 super great kids whom I am very proud of. They are awesome and they teach me new things every day. I have a 8 year old that was just baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so proud of that boy. He is strong in all the things he does. He knows what he believes and he makes sure he lets everyone know what that is.

His brother to is a strong boy. He has Cerebal Palsy and also has Cystic Fibrosis. He has the excuse of life is hard but you would never know it with the way he responds to life. He smiles all the time (well unless he wants a new toy or a new game for nintendo LOL) but he reminds me all the time to take your struggles and do with it what you will but enjoy life. Celebrate. I am so proud of both of them.

My dh Mark is the best. He is so supportive and makes me go scrapbooking to get out of the house. He is always trying to make my life easier and he is the best. So this is just my brief introduction in getting my life out there.

Basically my life is centered around my family and my religion and my friends. I feel blessed to be among all of them....
