...don't you think?? You think you have everything all planned out, you accept the challenges and decide to forge ahead and the next day WHAMMO!! Things have completely changed and its time to accept something different and embrace whatever comes your way. This has been our way of life for the last several months and I have learned alot about myself and the things I need to work on. Do you want to know what I have learned? Oh all right...I'll name just a few ;)
-My family and I can be happy ANYWHERE we go. Whether its our ideal little home that we LOVED in Herriman, or the upstairs bedroom at my in-laws house. Happiness is a choice, and I am trying to choose it every day.
-I have been blessed with the most amazing inlaws you could ever imagine! About a week ago when we thought we might get our home back my father-in-law said we couldn't go yet....that we hadn't stayed here long enough. Seriously?! We have completely turned their quiet, calm house upside down and they have been so kind to us the entire time. I honestly feel that my inlaws (all of them, parents, brothers and sisters ) are MY family, I just found them through marriage instead of birth.
-I have learned that Paul really is my best friend. Nothing more to say about that...its just a fact.
-I have learned how resiliant my children are. It was a tough transition to leave our home, but they are thriving here. Paul and I decided they will remember this experience exactly how we make it for them, so we lovingly call this stage in our life " Our Big Family Adventure!!" :)
-Last, but certainly not least....I finally learned the right way to chop up green onions. I can't believe all these years I have been throwing away the good part and using the chives! :) I think my mother-in-law is still laughing about that one!
Thanks for joining me for this little reminder of some things we've experienced the last few months. I want to take every chance I can get to grow and learn and become better, and I think this experience is helping all of us do just that!
Remember how this blog used to be fun and creative and full of ideas?? Well, they are going to be making a comeback BIG time!! I havent been able to do much with blogging since I have been using my inlaws computer, but I am getting mine back next week so watch out!! :)
