I'm a list person and so today I sat down to make my list of things to do....it covered one full sheet of paper and I turned it over on the other side. If I moved nonstop from the time I got up until midnight, I would not get all the things on my 'To Do List' done. So I am revamping and rethinking and reprioritizing. I am only going to do what is ABSOLUTELY necesssary. I am not going to clean the oven--the rolls and pies will bake in the oven the way it is just fine....I am not going to organize my extra guest room for Jordan--he'll sleep just fine the way it is. I will only iron what I want to wear, there will be some garbage in my garbage cans and some laundry in the baskets...and I will be okay with that--right? Holidays are about family and spending time together. Last night at Family Home Evening I asked my kids and my husband what they wanted for Thanksgiving--I will make sure they each have their favorite thing and then I will sit and talk with them and watch a movie and play a game. The dishes may wait overnight in the sink and the house might be dusty. I will not order another costume until Monday, and work on another formation or move for drill team(well until Saturday, when we practice again). I will be content to enjoy my family and the time together. I am thankful for the tomorrow's that remind me I need to enjoy TODAY!!!!
You cannot do a Google search to gain a testimony. You can't text message faith. You gain a life-changing testimony today the same way it has always been done. It comes through desire, study, prayer, obedience and service.
I am wife of one and mother of five. I consider myself loyal, friendly, busy and hopeful. I love my husband, my children, my friends and my girls....I dream of more time to be a better wife, a better mother, a better neighbor and friend.
