Things seem brighter and happier today. Perhaps because of the arrival of the sun and warmth it brought with it. It was nice to feel the air be warmer than 25 degrees for a change.

I also feel so encouraged by those who gave me their advice and direction. Thank you. It really was just what I needed.

I feel so blessed to have such amazing, strong women in my life.

My prayers recently have changed in wording. Instead of asking for guidance with helping my children reach their potential I have been asking that I may see them as Heavenly Father sees them. I know He is aware of their weakness, but only sees them as potential strengths not as stumbling blocks that must be dealt with.
I am grateful for the light that has brought into my life.

I was very mindful of every hug and kiss I gave today and tried to give extra. It paid off. At one point I told Tennyson I loved him and he grabbed my cheeks with his two adorable hands, pulled my face to his, and gave me a kiss on the lips followed by, "I looooooove you too mom!"

Guess who's going to sleep with a happy heart tonight?

That is so sweet, I'm glad you got to have that moment with Tennyson. I live for those moments with my kids, it makes all the other crappy stuff we have to deal with worthwhile. :)

I would imagine if we all would change our prayers to echo yours, they we would interact with other including our family would greatly improve!

I wish we had the sun today...another snow!

Sounds like your "best" was pretty darn good today! Hooray for the successful days!
