As I began thinking about starting this, I was a little hesitant at first. As a mother of young children, I tend to do the same things every day, and think the same thoughts. But as I have thought a little more about his, I have began to get more and more excited. Not because I think I have things to say that I think other people can benefit from, but because writing this and contemplating what I will be writing gets me to think on a deeper level that maybe I am not inclined to do otherwise. So more than anythings, I think I will like this as a 'journal entry' type log. Also, I am excited to communicate with family and friends through this, as I think sometimes we pass over the more meaningful thoughts and events in our lives in our everyday conversations.
So, to begin with, our latest and most exiting news is the news of Shon's new job. After trying, off and on for about 5 years, Shon was hired on Thursday to teach full time seminary. So this post would defiantly have to be dedicated to him. I am so grateful for his "never give up" spirit and how he encourages me in subtle ways to do the same. What an inspiration he is. Time and time again, his faith shows through as he faces his trials and gets right back up, and tries again. I really am lucky to have a spouse who is an example to me in more ways that I can name here.
