I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2006. The only reason why I can’t believe it is because it doesn’t really matter to me. Tomorrow will be just like any other day. I have my family, my health, and all that the Lord has blessed me with. Just because it is a New Year doesn’t make it any different. One thing I do know is that I DO want to get my life organized again but that has nothing to do with it being a new year.
I just finished reading two books about the Old Testament women, Sarah & Rebecah. I have learned so much!! Those were both really strong women and when I think about it, I don’t know if I could ever be that strong. I had a talk with Bryan today about all I learned from them and then he reminded me tonight, as he was leaving to magnify his calling, how I am strong just like those women. I laughed and asked him if I could also have 3 servants to help me with my needs. He looked around at my kids and said “You have 4 servants”. Then off he went. He will be back in a couple of hours and I am NOT going to murmur because I believe he is a very great man and just doing what the Lord needs him to do.
Speaking of husbands, have I mentioned how I have married the BEST one ever?? I am soooo critical of him and complain so much but I wouldn’t trade him for anything, not even the Cuttlebug!! He is my helpmate and my friend. He gets up with the baby in the middle of the night to change a diaper just so I can sleep 4 minutes more before I have to get up to nurse. He cleans the kitchen for me just so I can feel like the house is not a total disaster. But the most important thing to me is that he honors his Priesthood and is a man who serves the Lord. I think I have taken it for granted for the past 10 years but now I see how important it really is to me. Maybe there are many things that he still needs to learn but he is willing.
Those are my thoughts. Love you!!
