Sunshine


I got to take the kids outside today. They are so precious. It is so funny watching them ride their bikes. They are each so different and unique. Marlee is cautious. Much like me when i rode a bike. Dylan is all about speed. He goes as fast as he possibly can! Sydney is a daredevil, the trickster. There is this tiny little bump in the street, and she goes over the bump and over the bump then speeds up and tries to get her bike off the street, over the bump. She is going to be the death of me. She is also the best skateboarder of the three. lol.

It meant so much to me to sit in the sunshine and thank God for my children, my neighbors, who all came out to say hello and chit chat in the sunshine. I thanked Him for the hope of spring, which i pray will come soon. I thanked Him for my unique children, who are all made in His image, and are not cookie cutters. Thank God for that! They make my life interesting!

I have been thinking over the devotional that I posted earlier today. I am going to reread it tonight during my scripture study time and probably write in my journal on it. But it was nice to get outside. There is sunshine in my soul today.....

The sunshine seems to make everything better, doesn't it? I sat outside with a friend in the park for a long time and just enjoyed the fresh air. Even though I have a cold right now, I feel so much better!

Hi there! You stopped by my blog, and there I was, not being a very good example of a Mormon Mommy. Yep, occasionally I toss a b-level cuss word into my writing; I write the way I speak, and I speak a thousand times more cleanly than my coal mining ancestors, believe me. But you're right; there's no reason to do it if another word works just as well. So I changed it. And I hope you'll come back, not only to my blog, but to the MMB site.

Just be aware, most of us use this forum as a way of both expressing and improving who we are. I look forward to the day when the worst thing I ever do is say a word like that. But it's good to be reminded that I'm supposed to be a representative of my faith, and if I'm going to put my stuff out there for other LDS readers, I need to remember who I am.

Have a beautiful, sunshiny day!
