How Low can you Go?
Well have you ever been in a low…you know when you get a bit overwhelmed, and it ends up paralyzing you instead of motivating you? That ‘s me. Can’t decide between what you should do, what you need to do, and what you want to do? Since the kids left to go back to Colorado, I miss them more, and I think of Brendon and Steph so far away in Missouri, and My Cody so far away in Honduras. Miss them all so very much. This is actually a bit odd for me. But that old “empty nest” for us momma’s is very real.
Great thing is that I have 7 kids close by as well. Grant and Julia just moved into their home last week, Jordan and Breana are here in Corona as well.. Skyler and Garen, here with us, our bookend kids, oldest and youngest. And great news for me….Randi moves back home this weekend.
This weekend was a good one, I was missing Russell a lot, as he was off skiing on a work trip in Mammoth. I did however get to go to my sweet niece Kate’s baptism, then on to Breana’s sister’s wedding. Sunday, I got to hear Julia speak in her new Ward, Grant was home “dying”, at least that is what his Bishop said. Then we got to have our 2nd Sunday of the month family dinner and Fireside. Garen gave a lesson on Pres. Monson’s talk in this month’s Ensign. Really great to discuss the importance of prayer, and hear my oldest son say “this is not a concept that is new to our family”.
So smile a little smile for me…cuz I booked a flight for Russell and I to go celebrate Jackson’s birthday in April. That should hold me for a while.
Oh yeah, and getting my act together. That will take some time as well.
