Weeks of Sickness

I have been ill since Christmas night.  We had a lovely Christmas day with all of our children, but when they left on Christmas night I had a slightly sore throat.  I've been fighting to get well since.  I had a cold that held for a few weeks and I thought I was finally on top of it.  But then last week I went back to work and I really was feeling well.  But my son (who is my boss) and his wife and little boy had been to Disneyland and had the flu the whole time.  So that day I went back to work I caught the flu from them.  Totally a bummer!!  So I am now still at home sick with the flu for a couple of days and I need to get better because I am leaving for Mexico soon.  It isn't my desire to go there ill.  I want to be better so that I can enjoy my whole trip.  Anyway that is how my holidays were.

I totally expect for things to look up and get better.  I am being optimistic and I am looking forward to all the wonderful days ahead, but today I am sick and laying on the couch watching Amanda Bynes in What a Girl Wants (it's one of those when your sick movies).

It's only been 3 weeks that I've been sick.  So if this takes care of it for the year I'm good!!

Irregular Postings

I haven't been as good this year as I have in the past posting on my blog.  I'm sure some of this is due to time constraints as I have gone back to work to help support our daughter that is on an LDS Mission.  She is giving her time and talents to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others, so while she does that we support her so that she doesn't have to work and can spend all of her time sharing.  It is a great opportunity for both her and our family.

Another reason is that I just don't feel like I really have that much to say.  In the past this blog has been a place for me to vent or share feelings that I needed to get out.  However, I feel like I am almost past doing this.  Life is flying by and I just don't take the time much anymore to put it down on my blog.  I guess I also feel like there aren't many people that are really interested in what I do have to say.

So for now I will post when the feeling strikes, but it may be awhile in between posts.  I may even stop for awhile, who knows.

One thing I do want to post before I don't post anymore or at least for what may be a long time is my testimony of my Savior, Jesus Christ.  He is real and he loves us.  I am so grateful for all he has done for me in my life.  He has blessed me in so many ways.  Has done for me and carried me when I didn't think life was worth living, during my darkest hours.   I have felt him close by during trying times.  He has given me peace and joy.  I have witnessed miracles that he has given me and my family.  I am grateful for the teachings in the scriptures that give us his words and teach us how he would have us live.  I love him and want to be more like he would have me be.  I want to be kinder and not so judgmental.  I want people to see his teachings in the way I live.  I am trying and I know he knows it.  He knows my heart and he knows yours too.  He loves us because we are his children.  He wants us to be happy.  For all of these things I am so grateful.

I love this time of year when we get to celebrate his birth and focus more on him and how he would have us live.  I hope that I can live each day as if it were more like Christmas.  Show more kindness, charity, forgiveness, tolerance, compassion and gentleness.

Merry Christmas to all my you be blessed!
