Random thoughts

An experience with my oldest child today made me want to blog today.  I would love to share with you the details of the experience, in fact I was forming the blog post in my head as I was driving home with him.  But as I was fixing dinner it came to me that I wouldn't want my mistakes and learning experiences blasted all over cyberspace.  I need to show him the respect that I expect him to show me.  I certainly hope he doesn't blast all over the "net" when I lose it with him and am not on my best behavior.

So sufficeth it to say that it will be one of those life lessons that he (and I) will remember for a very long time. I didn't get angry, I fortunately kept it together because he was already beating himself up pretty good about it.


Change.  They say the one constant in life is change.  It stresses me out, a.lot.  We have some changes coming in our our lives.  One being selling our home and moving, others I am not at liberty to say just yet.  But the winds of change are a blowing and I get anxiety thinking about it.  Honestly I've felt those winds a blowing for several months now and knew something was coming, just wasn't sure what.  Not even sure we know exactly what is in our path, but it's different than we've been before.

So I'm trying to anchor myself with the things I know will keep me sure and steady in the midst of it. LOTS of reading good books...scriptures, inspirational, uplifting, fun books.  LOTS of prayer, always in my heart, lots of time on my knees too.  Serving others helps me stay anchored too, so attempting to do that regularly as well.


Doesn't this picture just make you smile?  This nearly 3 year old (next month...gulp) has started to really use his imagination.  He is so much fun and so smiley and happy the majority of the time.  This shirt has a silver cape attached to the back of his shirt with velcro.  He has another one with a red cape with the words BAM, ZAP, BOOM on it.  He wants to wear them 24/7 (thus why he has 2 of them).  I love it, he wears this mask most of the time he has the shirt on.  He cracks me up!

Ugh! Change. It's so hard sometimes. I hope the anxiety subsides and you are able to take it in stride. Good luck with selling and moving. Even good change is stressful. Sending prayers your way.
