Although it has been a while since I posted, I'd like to say that I have learned more gratitude in the past few months than anything. There haven't been any big happenings in my life, just small simple blessings that have a lot of meaning to me. I have been unsettled about some things and this has made me get to my knees and ask for help. This help has come in sweet feelings of peace and love. I have learned that there is a lot of joy in this life if we just are patient and kind to others. We don't get anywhere by being competitive, ungrateful, unsettled or envious. So my challenge is just to remember these impressions I've had and not try to rush to find "happiness" but rather feel the joy that I already have, but sometimes overlook. The joy that I have in my children and my husband. The blessings I have of having a roof over my head and food to eat. The joy I have of being free and pretty much being able to say and do as I please. Life is good. If we take the time to enjoy it and free out minds of envy, and apprehension, then there will be room for beauty and meaning to come in to our lives.

Am I the only one out there who is a "Jack or Jill of all trades"? It seems like everyone I know has something they are really good at! I was trying to think of that one thing that is my passion and I decided it's MANY things, and I decided that's not such a bad thing!!! I've been working on card making, scrapbooking and sewing lately!Here's a picture of the card I made today!

So this year has been a good, but busy one so far! In January we moved out to Smithfield, UT, which we are LOVING so far. The people are so nice and the neighborhoods are so quiet! And we got in to a bigger house! We got here and about a month later, along came our second baby Brooklyn Sue! We are absolutely in love with her. She was 7 lbs. 2 oz. Born on February 26, 2010. One boy, one girl! We feel so blessed! Also while all this was going on I finished a semester at WGU (I'm working on a teaching certificate). In about two years I should have it completed. It been a little crazy! Also April 24-May 1 Jonahs Sister Hannah Scurlock and her husband Randy and kids came to visit us. We had a lot of fun with them. I will post pictures of all these events soon!
