Living in the moment

This year I am tying to live in the moment more. To not let things get to me. There are so many obstacles in life, we all need less distraction. I am learning more to take things in stride, what you cannot change and continue to move forward. No matter what that may look like. This year is bound to be better then the last. It has already started out better, we have a beautiful daughter. With the many changes facing our family I will rest assured that it is all in God's hands and that He knows what is best.

Today Kevin turned 42. As I think back to when I first saw him he was a striking 6'7 210 lbs and he had muscles back then. He was wearing khaki pants, white button down shirt and a floral tie. He was tan just coming back from vacation and he would not even look me in the eyes back then. He would get to nervous and smile all the time.

Now I think of how we have both changed over the years, rubbing off on each other. I love this man so much and I hope we have 50= more birthdays together!

People are Strange

Why are people so strange? Why do they put to much time worrying about the doings of others? I just do not get it! Is life not full enough already that you have to be thinking about others all the time? I personally do not have the energy to put into that. With five kids it is the last thing I have time for. I think that everyone would be better off if they would just concentrate on their own lives.

I am so thankful for the gifts I have in this life. My husband, children and my friends. It truly only takes one person to make a difference! So if we would all care enough and try to make it better this world we leave to our children someday. We can all do our part and it doesn't have to be huge just try!
