I've had a pretty crazy time of it of late and all because of life. Things seem to always be crazy, with what seems like very little time of peace and tranquility. Okay so who is ever going to have tranquility and peace with a 7 year old and a 19 month old boy. Well have you ever sat and held a toddler as he slept, while cuddling up on the sofa with your child that my friends is peace and tranquility. Just watching that sleeping face puts a smile on your face and fills you with peace.

Whether they are a doctor, a baker, a candlestick maker, really doesn't matter what is the most important thing I can teach them is to love Lord.

What a blessing my children are to me. What teachers they are, without even knowing it. Trust me I'm failing some of the lessons they are trying to teach me, but I still work on it. I know I've a long way to go before I get the Mother of the Year award, but frankly I'm just glad I'm able to take part in this wonderful adventure. How dull and boring my life must of been filled only with myself, now the
