Why?

I am not a writer, nor do I pretend to be but I was inspired to create a positive blog. Here's why:

My son Joseph (Joey) loves to write and has a blog of his own.   One day he sent me a link to another blogger Stephanie Nielson who had a video made of her new life as a burn victim.  She had been blogging before with the purpose of putting a positive light on motherhood.  Then she was in a plane crash with her husband and was severely burned.  She continues to blog and uplift. As I was thinking about what she's going through, I looked at a scripture I had put on my fridge.  It is there to inspire me as a mother and to remember why I do what I do. It says "Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work.  And out of small things proceedeth that which is great." (D&C 64:33) I was immediately inspired to start a blog  to express my gratitude and to recognize the "small things" in life that contribute and grow into "great things".

I consider my greatest work to be bringing 8 small bundles of life into a happy marriage, then help them recognize that their greatest relationship as children of God will guide them to their greatest happiness in life and in the life to come.  This is a blog about our life and the daily thoughts and activities we go through to build our earthly and heavenly family relationships.
