Day 8 I am very grateful

We finally are able to send Aaron mail, I sent off 5 letters this morning and will continue to send him mail. Kodi loves to draw or color a picture for daddy.

It was a fairly ok day for us. It started off on the wrong side of happiness but once the afternoon hit and I got some meds I was doing better. I woke up this morning at 5 with a huge headache, not sure if it was from walking on the trail last night or what but man did it hit hard. I decided to take a long HOT shower and let the heat just hit my sinuses. Which it worked, I was so very grateful for. I than was able to go back to sleep for just a little bit.

We took Haleigh to school and ended over to Tara's house for a little while, Kodi and Inara had a great time playing, and than my headache came back. So we left and headed to Target I got some meds and caffine, Which totally helped.

Kodi has been playing very good tonight. I have noticed that his listening has just gone down the tubes since Aaron left. He doesnt want to pick anything up or listen to what I am saying. I don't like that I have been having power struggles with him on putting his shoes away. Now everytime we go I have to talk to him about "Where his shoes go after we get home"
"I know Mommy" he tells me.

I have to continue to remember that my kids are little just for a short amount of time and that I am very lucky to be their Mother. I will have time for me and what I want to do when they are in school and gone. The Lord has granted me this wonderful time to be their Mom and to teach them and for them to teach me. I just love what President Monson said last Oct

"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." Finding Joy in the Jounrey President Monson Conference Oct 2008

This is something that I rememebr when Kodi is not listening and I right now while I am parenting my children without their Father. It part of our jounry will come to an end all to soon. Will I have spent these 6 months getting made at the both of them or just take a step back and look at what they are doing and seeing if I should just laugh. My time with my two little sons are only a short amount of time in the plan.
I am so very grateful for them. I also have to remember that things don't always have to go the way I want them to, and that it will be ok.

Both my kids are a joy for me to be around. I love being their Mom and I continue to do my best while Aaron is away from us. You never realize how much you love your husband until they are gone. I am so very lucky to have married my best friend. He knows me so well. I am very proud to be his wife and to know that he is doing his very best to support our family.

Kodi loves to see all pictures of Aaron and gets a huge smile on his face, when he sees his Dad. He is busy playing with his transformers, as well as watching one of the movies.

KK is sleeping which is wonderful since he only took a 15 minute nap, little stinker.
