Stresssssssssss.....


Lately, I have found myself stressing over way too many things and letting more than one "issue" affect my mood and my entire day. Without being specific about these so called "issues" I taken some time to sit back and reflect. I have found that there is nothing more important to me than my little family and the Gospel. I may not be the perfect wife, mom, sibling, daughter of my earthly parents, and daughter of my Father in Heaven....but I try. Life certainly is not easy. I wish for the easy stuff to happen but it is far better for us to have the trials and find things out the hard way then to just have things handed to us. I need to be grateful for all of the many blessings that I have and not focus on the blessings that I might not have at this time. I'm grateful to be a wife to the most incredible husband. I am amazed at how Heavenly Father is able to match the right souls together at just the right moment in time. I am grateful to be a mother to my little prince Zachary. I must be doing something right as I still get hugs and big smiles each and everyday...they seem to be endless. I am grateful to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I know that I can turn to the scriptures and my Father in Heaven and find the comfort that I need at that specific time. And right now those are the only blessings to me that matter! But I'm certain that I am going to be grateful for chocolate in just a few minutes. =)

I am sorry there is stress. But I am glad you found comfort in the blessings. You have a great family, and we love you all. I chuckled at the chocolate comment.

I also have to think a lot about the things I do have and just be grateful. Chocolate doesn't hurt either.

Kim, YOU ARE AWESOME. I love ya. I couldn't have asked for a better friend, so I can only imagine the great wife and mother you are. The best blessings are the ones we have to really think about, then you never forget them. The Lord has blessed me soooo much, You are in my life. I just want to thank you for all that you are to me and let me tell you it is alot!! Don't let the stress get to you. You know we could be back in the day as roommates stressing about where we are going to move toooooo... think about that. And yes Chocolate helps.

Well said. Thanks for sharing your thoughts - and please let me know whenever I can do something to help. Even if that means hanging out with Zachary for 1/2 hour while you relax after work. He and Jozie are so cute together anyway :)
