Actually Posting My Musings

I didn't stop posting because I stopped musing about things. I just forgot how much I loved musing out loud. This past week leading up to Mother's Day, many of my friends replaced their facebook picture with a picture of their mom. I chose to post one of my favorite pictures of my mom and I together. I love this picture, I love the time we shared at Women's Conference at the time this picture was taken. My mother is trully and angel among women. She is definately a friend to all her girls. She is loved by everyone. Mom, I love laughing with you and visiting with you. Thanks for showing me by example. Now if I can just age as gracefully as you I will have it made.

With life, comes problems? Right?

Glancing down at my eight year olds feet, while they dangle during the time that he so patiently passes each sunday, my eyes widen when I see that on his left ankle is a nice white sock and on his right is an even more appropriate black sock.

I look at him with questioning eyes. His eyes sparkle back as he shrugs and says, "I couldn't find my other black one."

So you see my friends...Life may come with complications but hey, you find a solution and go on. Doesn't have to be a perfect solution for you to continue on your happy journey.
Just one that you can live with.

Mirror, Mirror Not On My Wall

Jamie and I were wandering the upscale store, Fred Meyers, when my eye caught a display of mirrors. I don't own a full length mirror, mine are all vanity mirrors (but what else do you use a mirror for if not for vanity.) I thought to myself Carpi Diem, Seize the Day!!! I decided to buy myself a full length mirror. I pulled one from the display, held it up a few seconds and placed it back from whence it came. Jamie wondered why I had chosen not to get the mirror, it was on sale after all. "Wrong one," I told him, "that one made me look fat."

The Motherly Connection

Shasta our cat had a batch of kittens this morning. Watching her care for her brood of five and knowing that she must care for some while more are waiting to be born. What a patient process she must go through. There's a connection between all things female. We can relate on the most intimate level, looking into each others eyes I feel the connection. The understanding and most of all the compassion I feel for this mother who just gave birth. Who has weeks ahead of her, with doing not much else, but snuggling and feeding her little ones. I must admit the snuggling and feeding does lend me to an edge of envy.

Random words that comfort...

On sunday during sunday school, I found these words of comfort. I have to admit it wasn't from the lesson but from an Ensign I had toted along in my bag that I pulled out to read when my mind wasn't willing to focus on the lesson.

Pres. Hinckley said, "The best food storage is not in welfare grain elevators but in sealed cans and bottles in the homes of our people." Since, this past week I have spent hours with family and friends preserving fruit, I loved seeing those words.

Coming into the world of bloggers

Today was like any other day, except I decided to share a part of myself. A place besides my journal to give into my random musings. Displaying a little of me on this world wide web.
I love to read blogs. Many I have found through reading one blog and then a link to another. Many are inspiring, some thought provoking, some bring laughter and some are just down right too perfect for me. So here, I am not sure what you will find, but it will be honest, if nothing else.
