we are so blessed! God is so good. Going through my life is like being on a roller coaster. Some up days going really slow some down days flying with the wind. I guess it takes all those days to make me who I am. I know everyone can't see eye to eye with me. Our family is very unique. I love my family. Sometimes it seems I am too strict or a little too tough. But no one walks in my shoes but me. For the most part, all of my kids are doing great. One or two are still working on issues but they will make it. I know they all will not follow through with the life I have planned for them. But hey I didn't choose the life my mother had envisioned for me either. And I am a happy, content, God fearing , mama. That's what I wanted to be. A Mama. To say I expected to have this many kids with this many problems is crazy, wrong and a lie. But I always did want a big family and I always wanted to adopt. So I'm living my dream. Sometimes it seems like a nightmare. On those days I have to remember WHO is in charge. I know HE will see me through. He led me down this path and I know HE will make a way. God is GOOD!

I have such sweet daughters. As we as a family have been going through some stuff, my daughters have tried their hardest to ease my burden. I have gotten flowers just because, cards both hand made and store bought and a thousand love you moms, and hugs and kisses. I truly appreciate the emotional side of girls. Not always.... like when hormones rage and one cries because her boyfriend hasn't called or her hair won't look exactly like the models in the magazine. But in general girls understand some things guys just don't. Including my husband. He's been great these 31 years but having a female on some issues is just better. And as I now have 4 grown daughters (soon to be 5) I'm totally happy. Some things change for the worse as they grow up but some for the better so I guess it all evens out in the end. Thank God for my girls!

Another week gone by!

A lot has been happening around here. I don't have time to sit down and write. When I'm in the shower or going down the road I think of a million things I want to write. Then a few days go bye and I forget it all and think of something else. So to catch up: we went to the lake and to a big park this last week. On Thursday we all went skating. Staisha, Josh, and Kyson went along with some good friends, Tracy, Jermiah, Preston, Parker-Reese and baby Phillips. We all had a blast (almost) At the very end they had a race for the kids and Hannah fell. I thought it was just a sprang. I ended up taking her to the Dr. and it's broken. So she has a cast on her wrist. She can't get in the pool or the lake. So she is kinda bombed out. I'll post pictures when I find my camera. I think Krishawanda has it.
We had a fantastic 4Th. Big celebration. Lots of family and friends. We went to a big fireworks show and got home late. Everything went great and I fell in the bed at bedtime. I was sick on Saturday. I just laid around and rested but felt better by Sunday. Today we are getting ready to go the mountains for a week. All the kids are super excited. I'm still not packed. I still have a ton of stuff to do. I'm off to sleep to try and rest before the vacation! LOL
