Everyone talks about what they are thankful for around this time of year. Makes you think if they think about being thankful any other time of the year! We have so much to be thankful for every day why only make it a once a year thing, or only think about it around a holiday. If your living today then you have something to be thankful for. If you have ever loved, then you have something to be thankful for. I read about every one's 30 days of thankfulness and it kind of makes me laugh, because really you have to think about it for 30 days to be thankful for and you can tell when someone is having a hard time coming up with something because they start putting things like "I'm thankful for my cat he always keeps me warm". What about I'm thankful I live in a country that has clean water or inside plumbing! I'm ready for their 30 days to be over so I don't have to read it anymore every time I am on face book. Maybe I should be thankful I don't have to get on face book if I don't want to.

It's not that I am not thankful, but I try to be that everyday not just on a holiday that most people don't even know the history of why on this holiday we should be thankful!

Making the Most of it...

You learn many things when you move around as much as we do. You learn who you are inside and out, how you will handle situations, how you can change an out come, how to make friends, who to invest in. But, sometimes there are bumps in the road. You learn from those as well. I am happy for the changes that we have each made ,who we are becoming. Watching my children learn from these things also. They see the real you, the good, the bad and the ugly. I am thankful to have them watching me, it makes me think about my choices more often and the example I am displaying to them. They learn from how we relate to others. They will know how to be a good friend based on what kind of friend they have seen me be. It never surprises me the people who choose to stay in touch with you and the ones who let you fall by the wayside. It is always the people who value relationship, friendship or who shared a deeper bond. It's about sharing those everyday moments of your life, they become like your extended family. You laugh, fight and make up. I am thankful for all the people who have come in and out of my life. For the ones who have stayed and the ones who have not. They all mean something on this journey!

1st Day

These 4 started school today! 1st day in a new school can be crazy, they took it all in stride. I am glad because I am sure it won't be the last school they go to. We are still settling in to our new life here. We all miss our fiends back in Utah, it is strange how a place can change you. How people can change you. I am looking for relationships here that I tend to compare to the ones I left behind. It is difficult to find people who were as amazing as my friends back in Ut. They each made me want to be better, rather that was a better mother, a better friend, a better wife. I love them and I always will. I will miss sharing my life with them. Those beautiful friends of mine that I shared a unique bond with. I am grateful for your love, laughter and tears. You will forever be in the fabric of who I am. I am sure you will forever be my friends!

New lease on life

It's been a while...we moved yet again this time back to Texas...I am loving the heat and acclimated to life again outside of the bubble. Though the transition has been strange and not what what I was expecting I am adjusting.
