So much has happened that I don't want to ever forget so I am starting over and going to try and do better to journal the happenings in our lives. I love my life with Gilbert and my 3 kiddos. I want to remember the ooey gooey details of what motherhood is about so when I'm old I can read my blog and smile, laugh, and cry about how good God is to me.
To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.
"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."
"We fancy that God can only manage His world with big battalions when all the while He is doing it by beautiful babies. When a wrong wants righting, or a truth wants preaching, or a continent wants opening, God sends a baby into the world ...perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother's heart, and she puts it into the baby's mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.
"It is wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father loves us--even with all our flaws! His love is such that even should we give up on ourselves, He never will. We see ourselves in terms of yesterday and today. Our Heavenly Father sees us in terms of forever. Although we might settle for less, Heavenly Father won't, for He sees us as the glorious beings we are capable of becoming."
--Joseph B. Wirthlin
"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" --Winchell
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."--Dr. Seuss
"The real losers are those who are so afraid of losing that they don't even try."
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
"Every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around."
