Why is it I just feel bad that I keep eating treats!? Why does my brain choose to focus on the one aspect that I’m not doing particularly well at instead of all the good I’m doing!?
What a weird weird time to be alive right now, especially as a mom. How do I help my children feel safe and secure when there is so much unknown in the world. How can I, as a mom, help my children with their school work on top of the emotional concern on top of keeping up with the house work and all the meals!?
I wanted today to be spiritual and memorable and wonderful. I had all the good intentions. But reality showed tired parents needing naps and emotional children displacing that emotion on each other.

I haven’t always been great at New Year’s resolutions, but I’m beginning to understand what it means to treat each day like it’s the beginning of the rest of your life.

Since it is the end of the year, I thought it would be interesting, at least to me to list out everything that has happened for us this year, so I tried and quickly decided that it was in fact not that interesting. Instead, I have decided to add in the Christmas letter that we sent, just yesterday, to family and friends.
As we enter this winter season we reflect on past season in our home and realize with 12 people, someone is always sick!
We are not ones to argue, with anyone, but this was our biggest argument that spanned over about a year. it’s from Jacob’s perspective and the lessons he learned from it.
