Better things ahead

 things since Thanksgiving have been difficult. I am proud that through it all it was easy to focus on the good and positive and keep my chin up.

But lately, seriously, things have not relented. One thing after another has me down in the pits. I still am having problems from the ectopic pregnancy (which Ty and I call quasi baby) and then I dropped this on my foot and we had a late night ER date:

For real. I can't point my foot yet, or run, jump or lift. Insert grumpy Annie.

 I'm trying to focus on my goals for the year (the ones I can control, which are few) and focusing on the happy parts of every day and week.  Right now the things I have control over that bring me happiness are things that used to seem insignificant.  Funny huh?

talking and reading with the kids. 
Talking to Ty at night after everyone's in bed
Making yummy dinners
Snuggling with Rodney and phoebe and enjoying their "littleness". 
Reading the scriptures 
Teaching my primary class 
Talking with friends
planning for the future. i've been busy making goals and plans for the future. i am really, really ready to put the past several months behind me and move ahead. i have plans to be stronger as a wife and mother, stronger physically, stronger spiritually and a stronger friend.

The last paragraph of my mission call (and I'm pretty sure everyone else's) reads, "The Lord will reward you for the goodness of your life. Greater blessings and more happiness than you have yet experienced await you as you humbly serve the Lord in this labor of love."

I have it memorized because I love it so much. It was a great comfort to me.

I think being a wife and mother is my mission now. That's my new labor of love. I like to think the promise of greater blessings and happiness in store for me still applies. It keeps me going.
