My Little Monkeys!

Here goes!

I always thought blogging was something meant for over achievers (something that I try really hard NOT to be) and horn tooters... (Sorry fellow bloggers, but I changed the errors of my way, right?) I figured if someone wanted to know what me and mine were doing, they'd be close enough to me for me to tell them personally instead of "publishing", "twittering", or "facebooking" it. But, I like to write and don't do enough of it. I also spend a lot of time at the computer. So, I thought I'd marry the two and call it some form of a journal. I have a fair amount of Mommy guilt too for not recording enough about my little people's rapidly passing younger years... so here goes!

I have been reading the blog of an amazing woman. She's a young wife, mom and a mormon. Wife. Mom. Mormon. That's who I am too. I feel like those three words sum up who I am and why I am the person I've grown into. Being those 3 things makes me happy and oh-so-grateful.

I read her blog because she always reminds me of my purpose on this planet. She reminds me that my sweet husband is my best friend, helpmeet and companion. She reminds me that my sweet children are angels from above who need my constant love and guidance. She reminds me that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. He loves me, and because I know this, I have responsibility to share His love with others.

I love that I can read her daily posts and feel better, happier, more grateful. Her name is Stephanie Nielsen. You may have heard about her. Here's her story (click on link below).
