I know that for me, each day is a new day of challenges and opportunities to grow and learn from the times of trials and triumphs. I find myself learning, growing and facing a new journey now. I am growing and realizing that ATTITUDE is absolutely EVERYTHING. I am dealing with new & different situations right now. I see the blessings SURROUNDING me (MAGNIFIED) in my life and heart. I have some really hard moments that knock the breathe out of me- but I keep breathing. I keep going. I have NO other option. I will never give up on believing that everything ALWAYS works out.
I am dealing with two teenage boys that I adore. They are so different. They are both my LIGHT. I love them so much it's unreal. They both are unique and different journeys. I have to parent them differently. My heart is always worried... AM I DOING ENOUGH? DO THEY KNOW I AM MAKING HARD DECISIONS FOR THEM? CAN I DO THIS WITHOUT TY? WHAT WOULD THEIR DAD WANT? It's hard and yet I feel God so strongly in our home and life. This is the hardest time for these young men to lose their dad. How in the world do I help them? I am overwhelmed on a daily basis. I worry nonstop for the decisions and directions they will take. My girls are solid. They are out of the house and thriving. My children are my reasons WHY I have been able to pick myself up and go on. They are my bestest friends. I know that FAMILY is everything. Friends come and go, but FAMILY is forever.
I am leaving Tampa Florida this morning. I am pretty tired from all the flying and nonstop action of being on HSN yesterday. I am going back to Joann headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.
Zach had his JR Prom with his girlfriend, Kenadee and they had a great time. They went as a large group to Ruth Chris steak house and then to the prom at the State Capital building in downtown SLC.
I am his mother. I am proud of him and his choices.
These moments remind me of how wonderful life is. It's these little moments. I am so thankful to be apart of it all. I know that if I my children feel loved and adored every single day that I have done my part as God would want me.
