Feeling Grateful

Amidst lifes challenges, it is so sweet. I have been thinking a lot lately. Today about how blessed our family is. Our beautiful home, Matthew's work (at home to aid me:), my everyday spiritual emotional and physical healing, my children, our health and knowledge of healthy lifestyle, our everyday opportunities to serve others, our family, the gospel, our Savior and Heavenly Fathers love and concern for us.

CharLee continues to be my sweet sensitive helper. He still comes in and lays by me in the morn and rubs my head before he goes to school. He is so responsible. I never have to get him out of bed or remind him to get homework done. He loves his sisters. He brings Andi to me when she cries, gets Beau breakfast when I am so tired and dresses Beau for bed. I love it after he has dressed Beau and they come into the living room in their jammies hand in hand. He is sweet and brilliant. I feel honored to be his Mother and know I have a great responsibility to prepare him for his life mission
Beau constantly entertains us with her wit and destruction. As Matthew was carrying her down to breakfast she rubbed his shaven head and said, "I like this Daddy's head,it feeeels goood." Today she started singing "I am a Child of God" as she built with her blocks and tonight she told me a bedtime story about her Prince and Princesses dancing in love. I know someday we will miss her sweetness and her messes.
Andi is getting big so fast. I have felt instant bond with her sweet calming nature. She communicates to me so well, I rarely have to guess what her need is. She is smiling and also cooooing back and forth.

I am blessed by the beauty of my Family.

CharLee is amazing! I have to be careful not to be too envious of his behaviors and be grateful for my kids! He is definately a special little guy!
