Well its been a while since I posted here.  I just had idea to make the post on this blog about my daily life. Like a short journal.

Well I'm not going to do much catch up today from the past but this is what today is looking like.
I have mountains of clothes to go through because I pulled the clothes from storage and need to get them all put back after I sort out my kids winter clothes. I am beyond overwhelmed.
My kids are as active as they ever were. Trying to find time between the mountains of clothes to give them all what they need it overwhelming as well. But with prayer faith, God and good friends I know I will make it. In the mean time our home is full of miracles. Like my husband finding a better job we are praying he will soon be doing full time with UTA and having lots of opportunity for overtime with his current job has  been great, also his knees getting better through prayer and faith and our relationship getting stronger than its ever been. Food storage being so easy to come by in the last few months and lots of love from friends and family when I'm feeling down. I would say the things I have to be grateful for far outweigh the things I have to complain about. So I think I will put on a movie and get to the laundry now that I have a smile on my face.

Deep thought for the day

Wow what a good day. It's been one of those days where I didn't get much done around the house but I spent some cuddle and talking time with my hubby and played a game and read scriptures with the whole family. Feels good to spend time together

Anyways here is my deep thought. As I was pondering how one raises a child I thought of the process. First all the child's needs are provided and teaching is going on constantly. Then the children are given strict rules and given a little more freedom to act and choose. But this acting is still done in a controlled environment where the children are given punishments for getting out of line because if not the children would make chaos. When the children learn enough to stay relatively under control and they are grown then they leave and are able to make their own decisions and they are left more to natural consequences instead of the parental "discipline". The parents are still there however for support and when the child who is now an adult wishes to progress further they go to their parents or teachers or those who are wiser then them and choose their path and their role models. Then the child is free to become what they want and this gives them the ultimate opportunity to take charge of their destiny so they ultimate consequence of their desires comes true not someone else's and who they choose to follow is who they become and then they are no longer having to live by someone else or according to someone else all the time they have become that someone they always wanted to be and they are free to follow their dreams as they have now become one with the one they chose to follow.

Well this got me thinking. God started out with the first people of the earth and at first provided a lot for them as he taught them (the garden of Eden). Then he gave them more freedom and gave out punishments and consequences when they disobeyed to keep the world from total self destruction and chaos. As the world progressed and in these last days he has given us so much knowledge that he now is letting go of the harness of the punishment more and more and more letting the natural consequences follow. He is now letting the world self destruct in so many ways because he knows that the world has grown enough to this point that it will not completely self destruct and those who call upon him he can give the power to overcome the evil. This world is like a child who has grown in the prime of it's adult life fighting within itself the conflict over good and evil and like so many old people in this world who finally figure it out, the good will eventually overturn and overcome the evil and something beautiful and full of knowledge and creative power will be born. Like someone who has conquered themselves and uses all their energy to make the world a better place and keeps dreaming of goodness and pursuing constantly that goodness.

Well this is my rambling for the day. My thoughts are sometimes very scrambled when I first try to write them and make sense of them so you will have to pardon the ramble style =) Anyways thoughts and comments welcome. This is a new way of looking at an old thought so stuff to feed this thought would be fun.

Question for today

This ongoing post will be for those who care to discuss concerns and questions I have. Today's question is

What do you do on those days that seem like everything is in Chaos. You and your husband are both feeling under the weather and your kids feel the tension and are fighting non stop and the two year old can't stop making messes and keeps throwing food on the floor and everything else in the house. Well how would you handle this. Would you flip out like I did the other day or would you have a more stable and brilliant method of dealing with this? Your thoughts are welcome =)

Kids say and do the Darndest things

This will be an ongoing post about my kids and the interesting episodes of being a Mom

I was talking to my six year old the other day and after discussing a new toy with her and her wanderings if she liked it, I stated well you'll just have to be happy with it. She thought for a minute and said "just like you have to just be happy with us kids". I was taking back and asked her what do you mean. After some discussion I found out she meant that even though the kids were not always perfect I just had to be happy with them cause they were mine and Moms were supposed to love their kids. Well she didn't say it in those exact words but that's the just of it. Way to throw some psychology at me kid!

My thoughts and stuff

Well how is everyone this fine day. I have thought about blogging for a while but never quite got my blog page done. I hope now if someone clicks on this page they will have something to read.

I have been trying to figure out myself and others all my life and the struggle for understanding continues. Lately I've been thinking about how always being right isn't as important as always being caring and letting other people know that where they are in their own development is ok. Since I cannot prove I'm always right it stands to reason that focusing on what I used to know and what I know now and how I've grown is more important. Then further how I can find out more and further grow. Further focusing on how others are growing at whatever stage they are and looking not only at what they know but at their personal experience and how they gained that knowledge. These are my most recent ponderings. Also I have been pondering a lot about how far I am from what I would like to be and wish I was. I struggle a lot because of this with self confidence and esteem. I'm thinking that looking at other blogs and reading about others will help me feel not alone and perhaps take courage that we are all still learning together.

I hope to get people responding to my thoughts and sharing their blogs with me. Feel free to visit anytime and open an invitation for me to visit your blog. Have a happy day.
