Lucky I'm in love with my best friend!

I love this song by Jason Mraz it is exactly how I feel about my relationship with Scott. I am glad we are growing old together.

Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you, I promise you I will

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Good bye to my Geoff

Geoff, Stacy and Nick
Scott is really going to miss Geoff

We went to brick oven last night for dinner and to say good bye to Geoff. He left this morning to Long Island NY for summer sales. I cried. No one saw me I waited until this morning when ever one was gone. It's hard being a mother. You want whats best for your children and pray that they feel your love and support for them and they will know how much God loves them. Geoff is a hard worker and will do well this summer. He will be missed so much by his mother. I miss his hugs, his smile, him coming over for Sunday dinner, and how kind he is to me. I will be praying for you Geoff. Good luck see you in six months.

"Blessed" a poem by my friend Lindy Allen

I love this poem by my friend Lindy. It says it all enjoy....

I feel blessed to have chosen Heavenly Fathers Plan
To be born at this time, and to be who I am
I am blessed to have all my children still small
Who make me feel busy and loved and on the ball
I am blessed with my friends, so few yet so filling
Who help me and love me and always are willing
I am blessed with the spirit that guides me with care
To help those around me and when to beware
I am guilty of trusting people around me too much
I often am hurt and knocked down by their touch
But I must be accepting and not quick to find fault
Indeed I dont know their troubles and thoughts
So I am writing this down, so I remember I'm blessed
With a house full of family and often times guests
I am blessed with a concern and love for whom I meet
And seem to feel their burdens no matter how weak
I am blessed with enough to help and reach out
To those who need help, the promptings I don't doubt
In these hard times of stress I'm trying to focus
On the things that are good, that people matter most
I wish I could fix the problems and pain
That affect so many in this time of distain
But, fix I cannot, although I can press on
And do what I can to help others move on
When what I want is to stay in my bed
And shut the light out with blankets over my head
On my knees I must fall and plead with the Lord
That my burdens may be light and my mind on board
I am so blessed in my life to know YOU
To listen and learn from my friends, though they are few
I choose friends with care and they fit no one pattern
All different, all special, All to me very much matter
I listen with care as I try to fill needs
I hope I can fill up where lacking you may be
I feel so blessed and will shirk negative thoughts
Brought by economy and news and feelings distraught
I am blessed with a home and a family so dear
The things that matter to me are always near
As I love my kids and they share their love
I hope I can teach that what matters is above
We all chose the plan, which is why we are here
The spirit promised to stay close when hope disappears
I feel blessed with my knowledge and covenants I've made
I hope to share what Christ for me gave
So in this time of much turmoil and fear
I have trust in the Lord, and know he is near
I am blessed.

Happy 16th Birthday Carlie Frances Elder! Disneyland here we come!

Carlie is named after Scott's Aunt Carlie and my Mom.
Two great women.

Carlie is a real blessing in my life. I prayed and fasted for Carlie to come into our family. I wanted a baby so bad. We were trying to get pregnant for about four years. Finally! I remember when I found out that I was pregnant I went straight to the Lord and thanked him. With so much gratitude for this great blessing. Then I find out that I was due on my birthday April 6th. How cool is that. And yes she was born on her due date my birthday. The best birthday present ever!!!!
Ten great thing about Carlie.

2. She is very very determined and will get what she is working for.
3. She is so funny she makes everyone laugh.
4. She is good at what every she does. Hard worker.
5. She is very wise in who she chooses to hang with. (Meaning people with high standard).
6. She does well in school.
7. She loves going to the cabin and playing hard.
8. She is outgoing and kind to everyone.
9. She is very good to Rylie and they are good friends.
10. She is our Carlie Carlie and we are so blessed to have her in our family.
