This new year I am taking a semester off of school. There are many factors in my decision but I feel that the most important one is  because I need to work on me. There are so many things that I want for myself that I have neglected due to time. So now I need to come up with a plan.
The following is a plan for 2012

I wish I knew who made this beautiful portrait I love the look of love and compassion in the Saviors eyes. {I found this picture via Pinterest}

I love the symbolism of Christmas. There is so much meaning and thought behind every tradition. I am if you have not guess by now a symbolism nut. I find true beauty and meaning in it. I also feel that almost every deed  and action can symbolize something more and better; not only for ourselves but for the others around us. It is like that old saying, actions speak louder than words.    
    This is the time when our actions take notice and others find meaning. I have noticed lately that no matter what I do I am being watched. Not only by the little eyes of my child, but also by the curious eyes of stranger.  Wondering how I am going to handle my situation that I am in. Sometimes they are a quiet bystander with an understanding or differential looks and  sometimes comments are made. The moments are brief.  I often wonder however what the impact is, and did I make a positive impact. Now I know that there are something I could have handle better, when I am at the end of my “parenting” rope. I also know that things are not always has they appear. I know that I am guilty of the act of looking and listening to others as well. In a way I find it comforting sometimes thinking, I am so happy I am not the only one.
    I love this idea that we are in this world together and we should make it better for others and ourselves. My prayer is that for this Christmas we remember the person who has made a great impact on the lives of all. That when we have the opportunity to make a impression on others that they see the Saviors influence on my life. I hope that when my daughter looks into the past she has an understanding  of the love the Savior has for us, and that the symbolism that we have been given is cherished for the correct reasons.

I hope your day is blessed!

Waiting to start...

How come in life something’s seem harder than others to start. Take right now for instance I really should be cleaning my house, yet here I am typing just so I can procrastinate is just for a bit longer.  I feel this is a habit that I have embraced convincing myself that I work will under pressure. When the truth of the matter is I hate to procrastinate. I hat feeling the pressure that I have to do something.  Ah well nothing can be done except for thing that I must do.
    Today however it maybe harder then ever to get things done. My little one is home sick. Although if one were to look at her you would not be able to tell that she is; because once that children’s Tylenol kicks in all bets are off that any work can get done. This is okay thought because I love spending time with her.
    Last night I gave her a special treat, it was a Ready Reader book. I can not express the amount of pride I felt as I watch her read. {I must have the smartest 6 year old alive!}  It made me think how learning to read is just like life. Sometimes it comes easy, sometimes you stumble your way  through it, sometimes you take your time, and sometimes you just don’t know. In the end however is the reward you get when you make it through with a great accomplishment.  If you think about we are all characters in our own books our action are the words that leave their trace on another’s soul. Just think you are a legend in the making good or  bad depends on your actions. Your trails add to the complexity and make it more compelling for others to  want to be a part of. {Have I ever told you I love the symbolism of life..}

    I have so much to get done today that it is crazy! I must start this adventure of my day. If hadn’t had to go to school today I would probably be ending sooner. This alas is life.
I hope your day is Blessed!

Blessing that are worth waiting for.


     Sometimes in my humble opinion life feels like a waiting game, a long line to what you are waiting for it to be. This is how my life sometimes feel. We’re waiting to finish school, we’re waiting to hear back from the dozen job interviews, we’re waiting for a child {Not  by our own choice I might add}. I have commonly called this phase in our lives that it is like living in J-ello. And we are trying to wiggle ourselves to the top just to get out!  The wiggling takes a lot of work but in the end it will all be worth it, and we can move on into our next trial.
    Trials are funny things, they can really shape a persons outlook on life. I honestly don’t know how the hubs and have done this last 3 years, without a job, and both of us in school. I will say this it has something to do with a kind and loving Heavenly Father. I am not sure how many can say this but this last 3 years of trials have brought us closer then ever before. Now don’t get me wrong there are still battles and it is not easy; but I now know that I have someone whom I love very much beside me for everything. If anything this trial of our has made us rich in comparison to when we “Had  it all “ .
    With a new year rapidly approaching I cannot help but think excitement of change is in the air and all is good within the world of our tiny home. I have a little one whom I adore and constantly keeps me on my toes, I have the support of my hubby,  and I have a circle of amazing friends whom I am so blessed to call my family, but most important I have the Gospel. I know that blessed because of this. Sometimes it is nice to look in mirror and think wow, I am truly blessed.
I hope your day is blessed!

Ps.    So here is a fun factoid about me I love quotes!  I really do I try to put a new one up weekly in my home. To think someone once said this group of organized words and the are still being used to uplift people today. I love it! So my new goal is to have words to live by at the end of my post we will see how long they last but I thought I would try it!

This is your 4am wake up call!

This is the second time this has happen to me, being awake that is before I want to be. Egh! Although I am must admit 4am is better than last nights 2 am. I think this has to do with some anxiety I am feeling, I don't know why I am feeling this way; it kinda crept up on me like a horror film. My SIL told me she was pregnant last week. How does one little sentence hold so much weight on me? I also wonder how I can feel so utterly happy for her and start to feel so bad for well me? Self pity for one! Maybe this strings from the fact I have been trying for over 5 years to have baby#2 ans she is on baby #3, or maybe it is the fact that she is the second to announce she is going to have a baby and I know it is only a matter of time before at least two others announce their baby plans. Either way I need to get out of this funk! This effect my health, my family and everything else!
I started to take Maca Root again last night, I put it in my smoothie and I think because of yogurt I used it actually tasted like an enhancement! I didn't taste it all and my smoothie was extra good! I have been also thinking about going on Soy as a natural clomid replacement. More research has to be done on my part.
On the weight issue since my last trip to the hospital with asthma I was asked not exercise in the gym until I get it under control. This is killing all the effort I made this year. I have to start working out again. Especially if I want my goal to be met. I keep telling myself only 5% weight loss will make a huge difference.
Will things to do that won't go away until I attend to them I hope all is well!

Thankgiving day crafts for the lil ones!

I love Thanksgiving, I love everything about it the symbolism, the history, the food and of course the food. This year we are at my parents meaning the little one will not have anyone to play with, this makes me so sad!!! So of course we will have crafts for her to make which I do part because I feel like she needs something to occupy her time. Since I am in love with Pinterest I thought I would put a link board together of things I would like to make with the little one on Thanksgiving!!! Enjoy!

Welcome to my new little blog here on the web. I wish I could say that I am new to the blogging world, but alas I am not. I have tried in the past to blog and I was good at it for awhile but then it lost my interest and I moved on. In fact I would start a new blog with a new interest, and the cycle would repeat itself. {It is amazing to me how many blogs you can have} I think though I have figured out how to break this cycle which is to start a new blog. I know this sounds the opposite of what I just said but hear me out. Instead of classifying this blog as a craft blog, cooking blog or crocheting blog I just assume not to assign it as any type of blog but let it take form and just be what ever I want it to be for that post. Just simple, in other words just me.
The name for the blog is truth I want this to be a source for my daughter to look at and get to know me, when she is older. I want her to know my struggles so that when she is a mother she can look back and learn from my mistakes, and triumphs. Life is a beautiful journey with bumps and turns along the way, sometimes I forget what my role is and I lose myself. In the end however when I find myself again I am always amaze with how strong I was and how much stronger I have become.
I know that most of my strength comes from my faith in a kind and good Heavenly Father. I am amazed at the beauty he gives me everyday in my blessings. I even find that trials have beauty in them if you open yourself up to it. As most have guess I am a Mormon.
Here is a little more abut me, I am in school right now to become a Registered Dietitian {RD}. I want to be an RD because 4 years ago I found out I have PCOS , and endometriosis I know this sounds like an odd choice considering but what I learned when researching PCOS and endometriosis is that food has a direct impact on why I am infertile. So the plan is to study this in detail and not only help expand my family but other as well.
I also love to craft, sew, crochet, photography, bake, cook and so on. I love to be creative so much that I even include that as part of my diet plan. {only 50lbs to go!} When ever I feel a craving that I know I do not need {such as sugar} I create first. This usually means I am making something constantly.
I am so excited to start this blog and just letting it evolve to what it needs to be at the moment I need it. I also am looking forward to making friends I think this is going to be great!
