Another Month and Counting
Another Month is almost half way over already. My oldest Sarah just turned 10 on Saturday, You just have to love a birthday on Valentine's day. My wonderful husband surprised me with a gift certificate to the Destinations Inn for a night away from the craziness of my house, along with a gift card to Olive Garden. This is the first time in years that we have exchanged gifts for each other on Valentines. I believe that he is aware that I am really struggling with dealing with the loss of my mother and haven't had much time away since it happened 3 months ago. I am sure that the people of church think that I am an emotional wreck. I did just ask my bishop to release me from my Ward Chorister calling as I have been doing it for 2 years and am ready for a break. It is really difficult to get up in front of everyone on Sunday's since this all happened. My dear son Joseph who will be 6 next month said the funniest thing on Sunday in primary. The president was asking him "Why did your dad baptize your sister?" His response is "Because my mom didn't want to get wet." You have to enjoy the minds of these little kids. They are sure quick to have a great response. They are truly an amazing gift. They definately have been great at keeping me grounded and making me laugh, right when I need it the most. Things are going well. I get to get the implants from my sinus surgery out today. Hurray!!!! Hopefully this is stop my awful sinus headache. I will write more later.
