Caden has been such a strength to me through this difficult time. He is always smiling and laughing at me so of course I can't help but smile and laugh back. I know that I was meant to have him at this time to be a blessing to me and to be my angel. I love him so much and I'm so eternally thankful for the opportunity to be the mother of the three most fabulous children! They are my everything! I would do anything for them and I am striving every day to be a better mom who they can look up to and love eternally! May the Lord continue to bless us!
The other night Chase was upset about having to sleep in his room alone. I told him that he wasn't alone because he has Caden in his room with him. "I don't want a little kid, I want a big person to sleep with me!" I figured that since Brooke and I sleep together he was getting jealous and lonely being by himself. So the solution was to have a slumber party in the family room. That idea went over well, so they got to sleep together in the family room for one night! Problem Solved!! And now that he is back in school he knows he has to sleep in his bed. No more sleepy time issues! At least for now...
Well today we had a good day! It's been snowing a lot but we decided to venture out! We went to On the Border for a late lunch/early dinner. Then we went to Kohls to get me some pants for work. Well while we were there we found these cute Dr. Suess stuffed characters. So Brooke and Chase each got one, courtesy of grandma!! They love them and are carrying them around everywhere! Anyways we had a good day, and keep praying that we will have many more good days!!
AS MOST OF YOU MAY ALREADY KNOW TRAVIS AND I ARE OVER. I AM BACK IN COLORADO WITH THE KIDS AND BACK TO WORK I GO. TRAVIS IS STILL IN OKLAHOMA BUT HE MAY MOVE TO GREEN RIVER, WY IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I'M NOT SURE WHAT HE IS THINKING. THE KIDS ARE HAVING A HARDER TIME THIS TIME AROUND BECAUSE WE ACTUALLY SAT DOWN WITH THEM TO TELL THEM WHAT WAS GOING ON. WE EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT MOMMY AND DADDY WILL NOT BE MARRIED ANYMORE. THEY JUST KEPT ASKING WHY. THIS HAS BEEN SO HARD FOR ME TO SEE THEM GO THROUGH THIS. I HOPE THEY WILL GET BETTER WITH TIME AND THEY WILL START TO UNDERSTAND WHY WE HAD TO GET THE DIVORCE. WELL ANYWAYS WE WILL JUST REMAIN FAITHFUL AND DO WHAT WE CAN. JUST TAKE IT A DAY AT A TIME! HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL. TAKE CARE...
I just wanted to write a little thank you to everytone who has been a part of our lives. I want to let you all know that we appreciate all that you have done for our family. It is so nice to have family and friends that you can always depend on and who will be there to support you no matter what. So with that in mind, thank you to all of you for your friendship and love through everything!
The Most Important Thing in Life:
For those of you who know me pretty well, know that my family is the one thing I cherish more than anything else in the world. I believe that the family unit is the most important thing we can have in this life. Children should be able to turn to their parents without feeling judged or ridiculed. Trust and love in eachother is what will get you through the tough times! I just wanted everyone to know that when you are having a bad day just remember that your Father in Heaven has blessed you with a family. Love and cherish them like you should the gospel. I'm sorry about my little speech. I didn't mean for it to sound like I am preaching, but I just wanted to share my thoughts and let everyone know that we are a blessed people! Have a great Day and thanks for visiting our blog!
