I just accepted a problem and I'm ready to fix it!

I've had a problem and I am ready to face it. I have been bottling it up inside and denying it for years. Today is a new day and I'm ready to face my fears!

So, Satan get thee hence! You are not welcome in my home or in my mind!
Heavenly Father loves me
Brit love me
Zoey loves me
and Maggie loves me

They accept me as I am and challenge me to do better.

I put all my effort into being a great Wife, Mom, Employee, Daughter (some people might not think so but I know the truth), Sister and Friend. Some days I do great at all of them and some days I fall below less than my best. I know that IT'S OKAY!

One of my biggest faults is being a perfectionist. Why am I just now realizing that this is silly? Only Christ was perfect. The only way I will accomplish things is if I humble myself and accept Him to help in EVERY aspect of my life. I have been so prideful in thinking that I can be perfect and do things on my own. Today I learned that I must humble myself, accept that I am not perfect and allow others to see my faults and ask for help!

My biggest stress is that I feel guilty being a working mom. I have released that guilt and am accepting the fact that it's okay to be a working mom. My girls LOVE me and I LOVE them, NOTHING will change that. I have help I know that if I trust in the Lord HE will help me be a great mom. It's okay that I feel tired. It's okay if I get frustrated. Every day is a new one, every moment is a new one and he has given me the power and the ability to make it positive. However, if I'm too tired, it's okay to rely on Heavenly father's Angel's to HELP ME!

I love my Savior. He is real and I know that through Him anything is possible. I am grateful for the people and experiences that I have in my life. I know my Heavenly Father is aware of me and what I am going through. I know that the Savior atoned for me and has felt the exact feelings that I have right NOW, when He was in the Garden of Gethsemane. I love Him and know He is guiding me in my life.

I accept the challenges that await me and know that with God all things are possible!

Days like today

I only made it through today because...
He sent angels, divine messengers, to bless His children, reassure them that heaven was always very close and that His help was always very near.
-Jeffery R. Holland

I am very greatful for the angels that helped me today. AND thanks to all of them, I KNOW tomorrow will be better.


Today I had a break down and just decided I needed to focus on what was most important! My family and me!

I Surprised Zoey at school and ate lunch with her and her friends. Then we went on the play ground and played freeze tag, ring around the rosie, duck, duck, goose, and Tangled( The kids wanted me to the mean witch).

It's been an emotional day so I came home and took a nap.

When I woke up I went in and volunteered in Zoey's classroom. I got to help the kids play math BINGO. It was good to go in an observe Zoey in the classroom. I've learned what she is struggling with and am working on a game plan to work on it at home.

After school we grabbed Maggie and went to the BOUNCE house for dinner and bounce. BEST deal ever! Dinner and 3 hours of play = $11. LOVE IT. Maggie even enjoyed a few slides.

It's nice to have the girls fall asleep within 5 mins of hitting the pillow.

Now I get to relax with me time all night. Brit's not home which is a bummer because I love being with him but I feel good to have just ME time for a few nights. (He is in Phoenix at Woodbadge sleeping in a tent.)

Amber went to a concert in Tucson. But will be back tomorrow so we can have a girls night.
