As many of you know the last few months have
been a whirl wind for our family.

We packed up and left our jobs, home,
family and friends
to pursue new things
in Las Vegas.
After many prayers and tears we knew it
was the right thing to do.

Today my heart is so full and although I don't know
all of the reasons we are here,

I have felt reassured that we made the right decision.
We are thankful for our ward

and have appreciated them opening there
arms and welcoming us.

The first couple of weeks we were here I felt so guilty.
I felt bad that I was not working.
I missed my job so much.

I know that sounds funny but I loved my job.
I have so many wonderful, special memories, and
life long friendships that I will always treasure.

One day I woke up and realized I was with
my girls again,
four hours a day.
More than anything on this earth I love being

a mom. I love hearing my girls giggles,
and watching them grow.

I cannot believe how fast the time goes.
Ana will be four in just

a few days.
I feel blessed that I am with them again.


One day I counted your fingers an kissed each one
One day the first snowflakes fell,
and I held you up and watched them melt on your baby skin..
One day we crossed the street, and you held my hand tight..
Then, you were my baby
and now you are my child
Sometimes, when you sleep, i watch you dream, and I dream too..
That someday you will dive into the cool, clear water of a lake.
Someday you will walk into a deep wood.
Someday your eyes will be filled with a joy so deep that they shine.
Someday you will run so fast and so far your heart will feel like fire.
Someday you will swing high- so high , higher than you ever dared to swing.
Someday you will hear something so sad that you will fold up with sorrow.
Someday you will call a song to the wind, and the wind will carry your song away.
Someday I will stand on this porch and watch your arms waving to me until I no longer see you.
Someday you will look at this house and wonder how something that feels so big can look so small.
Someday you will feel a small weight against your strong back.
Someday I will watch you brushing your child's hair.
Someday, a long time from now,
your own hair will glow silver in the sun.

And when that day comes, love, you will remember me.

Oh what a sweet poem, yes they grow way too fast!! I have been bad at checking people's blog so I didn't realize you were in Vegas! Good luck and its so nice to get answers to prayers and know that the Lord really does know what is best for us!
