What you don't See

I found a link to THIS article in the Mormon Times entitled "What you don't see" by Tiffany Gee Lewis on my college friend Kendall's Blog. **You should read it!** I reflected on a brief conversation I had with one of my good friends last night. I was complimenting her on her children, and what good kids they really are. She has 3 under the age of 5 (I think...her oldest is not 5 yet... I hope not!) and the two oldest are so smart and well mannered. not to say the youngest is not either - he is just a little baby. She really has taught them well. She replied thanks - sometimes it is nice to hear.

I think sometimes it is Taboo to talk about the hard work we all put into our lives, only focusing on the shinning moments, only showing forth our best foot on the blog. I certainly am that way. Maybe today is a good day to reflect on the work and perspiration we each put into trying to make our lives (for those of us who are single), and our families lives run. Give yourself a pat on the back! You are doing a good job! Even if you do not see it everyday.

As a little side note:
I've decided it is good luck to my Visiting Teaching Companion -- because you will get engaged! So far - since I have been home - my success ratio is 2:0. That is 100%. hmmm - think this could work for me? :)

I keep my promises....

I recently discovered Picnik - thanks Molly - what a wonderful website! Here is just a little of what I have been up to the past 9 months... and NO! it is not a baby! Just a boy... and nope - we are not engaged. Dating - and that is happy. :)
