Sunday lessons:Perspective

I am borrowing my dear friends camera right now...I am in heaven. I have missed looking through the lens of a camera, I am giddy with excitement. Anyway the other day Jack and I were out in the yard exploring and I captured this beauty-

To a passer by this was just a flake of snow but through the lens of my camera I saw a diamond. A diamond so pure and clear, radiating beauty. I think we are like this flake of snow. When we look in the mirror we might just see snow, nothing too miraculous or special but through the lens of our Heavenly father we are indeed diamonds. Precious, unique diamonds that have been molded and individually formed. I challenge us all to change our perspectives and look at ourselves as God sees us. Lets embrace our diamond qualities and sparkle!

We are having another BOY! I am 20 weeks along (half way through) and have not vomited in a 6 days! Hoping we can increase that number;) Getting geared up for feeling good. The doctor said everything looks great.

Feeling very blessed.

My escape from reality...

I was feeling super yucky, bloated, jiggerly and tired and just knew what my body needed...SOME YOGA. Ahhhhh, I feel 100 times better.


I am now stronger, more energized and excited to get stuff done. I LOVE YOGA!

Things that have come out of the mouth of JACK

In the grocery store. Jack is ahead of me by 10 or so feet walking down the baby isle. He sees and picks up a bottle of baby powder and loudly says, "mummy, it's powder for my penis!" (big I'm so proud of myself smile) right here (points to penis) for my penis."And then he told the next customer that came down the isle. What can I say, the kid enjoys anatomy and sharing his knowledge with others.

At a church baptism. The lady giving a talk asks the question, "who is the holy Ghost?" No one answers so Jack decided to enlighten everyone by declaring, "I AM!" Yeah, I don't think so! Ha, got to work on that one.

Checking a pregnancy email with me. Jack says, "I want to see what the baby looks like." I pull up the picture of the baby within the womb. Jack say's "oh my look at that uterus!" Yes, my 2 and a half year knows what a uterus is.

Asking about nursing. "Mummy, will my nipples get milk in them too when the baby comes?"

WOW! I am only blogging about this in hope that one day I will look back and laugh.

OK imagine this if you will:

Two boys; Jack and Dalin at the computer. Dalin on the stool controlling the game. Jack is jealous. Jack tells Dalin it's his turn now, nothing happens. Jack tries to pull Dalin out of the way, unsuccessful. Then with no other option Jack pulls down Dalin's pants and bites his left buttock cheek! YES, he bit his bottom!! HIS BARE BOTTOM! Screaming erupts, my heart rate increased at an unhealthy pace and rush to the scene. I make sure Dalin is OK and comfort him and then Jack. Well lets just say I exercised every ounce of patience to discipline him.

And then after all is said and done I just wanted to cry but figured that it would do no good so instead we did a puzzle. And yes Dalin's bottom is purple.

He is cute but very dangerous.

Hummm...any suggestions?

Sunday Lessons

Today I am grateful for the gift of the holy ghost or otherwise know as the spirit of God. This morning I wasn't feeling so hot due to this and Jack was full of energy and determination. He was quite the bundle of noise and distraction during church. I allowed myself to become irritated. I am so thankful for the dear sister that taught relief society, she was prepared and taught with love. I felt the spirit of God enter my being. It felt so good. It was my attitude that had driven the spirit from me. I hope that I can live more worthy of the presence of the holy ghost.

A lovely sister at church was asking me some advice being a parent. I thought "you are asking the wrong person!" She doesn't have any children but she home schools a troubled teenager. She was at her wits end and came searching for some new ideas. I shared a few ideas, the little I know. Anyway as I contemplated our conversation on my drive home I formed an answer to her question "what do you do when you don't know what else to do?"

This is my answer: You make mistakes. Sometimes you give in, other times you loose your temper, you might cry, yell or just bottle all those unhealthy feelings up. In short you are humbled by being human, by being imperfect, by being prideful and if you are smart you will realize that you need help. And then you pray. Pray for patience. Pray for love. Pray for hope. Pray for peace. And then you will feel God's love and guidance. You will pick yourself up and try again and again; this is the process.

I know that without God I am nothing. I know that he makes me greater than I can be alone. I LOVE God and God LOVES me!
