My Wonderful Mess

I was making the kids clean up their rooms tonight, all the while griping to myself about the never-ending clutter that seems to follow me everywhere. As I was helping Harrison straighten out his shelves, I thought to myself, "There will come a time that I will long for the days of toys in the floor, and I will wish that I had little sticky hands and faces to wipe." I don't want to forget these days. I need to treasure and savor every minute with my babies. So, I picked up the camera and snapped a few pictures of my kids' rooms. Livvy was playing store at the time, and was busy carting food from the kitchen to her bedroom. Thus, the animal crackers in her doll buggy. One of the greatest things about being a mom is that you get to get up and do it all over again tomorrow.

Family and Friends Fast

We are going to fast tomorrow for our nephew Dallin. (I hope I spelled that right.) He was born 2 1/2 months early, and is in intensive care in Tucson. We ask our friends and family to fast and/or pray for him that he will grow and be healthy, so that he can come home. Our thoughts and prayers are also with Paige C., in the hopes that she will heal from her surgeries. So many of us are burdened right now, and we hope that we can lend the support and comfort that those who are suffering need.
