Wow!!!! I just haven't been keeping up with this blogging thing!!! Nor many other things that I am supposed to be involved in these days :) But I have been thinking a lot about family lately and I just want to write some things.

I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has this wonderful plan in which we are given families!!!! I know that I was sent to my wonderful family because they were the best examples for me to learn and grow from! I know I have been blessed with Joe, Joey, Layla and Rex because I am the best example for them to learn and grow from. Every day I am challenged with obstacles and trials to develop from. I look to my wonderful family for guidance. Thankful for their experiences and their words of counsel that they love me enough to share with me.
After seeing John and Amanda married and their sweet young love I am inspired to recommit myself to my sweet Cool's and to prove to them how wonderful it is to be their wife, mother!!!
Since being able to spend time with my family that I am not able to see on a day to day basis, I am grateful that I am able to be associated with them and was blessed to be born into the Stephenson/Lefler groups! I love that I am able to walk into their open arms and feel of the love they have for me. I am grateful for brothers and sisters who love me and who genuinely care. Who are able to be called upon for any reason and who have got my back!
So, I hope that I have or will repay all of the love and adoration that I have felt from all of my family. Just really grateful today for family!!! Too bad life sometimes gets in the way! Love you all!
