Sometimes Satan is Annoying

I've decided today that Satan really  likes to throw curve balls at you.
I'm not sure if it's to humble you and they are lessons from the Lord
if Satan just thinks it's freaking HILARIOUS to make people cry.

Why is it do you think that I need to feel as miserable as he does?
I'm not sure I need to have that in order to feel the joy.

I cried today at work, thinking the whole time, "I've been doing so well lately. You have no power to make me feel this way..."
And yet,
for some reason he does.
I felt miserable.....all day.

I've decided that no matter what, sometimes the world really gets you down....
But then a glimmer of hope....

My dear sweet cousin Jessie reminds me with a simple status update on Facebook
"That did not go as I'd hoped it would. Ah well, I have many more blessings than I do trials, so we are all good! :o)"

I have more blessings than trials............yes I do.
Thank you so much for my life, even when it is hard.

Off the beaten path

Most recently we went 4-wheeling with my 2 favorite people...Tim and Justina! Here are a few pictures of our adventure. Don't forget to check out the one of Stina and I looking sexy in our cold weather gear. Oh and the bike jumping is by Tim and Stina. Douglas and I were on a borrowed bike so we weren't about to jump it. (Thanks again Jed and Kallie)

I'm sorry for my actions
My weakness, my words
I know it doesn't make it better
It will probably just make it worse
But I just want to tell you
Even if you don't believe

I know that I love you
I know that you care
I promise I hear you
Even when I'm not there
I want to always do right by you
As a friend, never a foe
Please just understand I'm doing what God asked me to do

Your Mom.

I wrote this poem because I feel that anyone who reads it will need it just as much as I did when I wrote it. Current and future mom's need to be able to say all of these things and sometimes they just can' , she's only doing the hard task that God gave her
to protect you.

Love you all!
