Is there a point in anyone's life when you suddenly feel like things are just right? I think there must be times for everyone like this, too bad they are so few and far between. Lately I have been thinking about my life and how much I have to be thankful for. I have a great husband who helps with the kids and housework, beautiful, smart children who are nice to be around (most of the time) and a job I like. My life is fulfilling in a way I never imagined when I was younger. I'm not sure what I was envisioning for my future as a teen. If I was dreaming of anything it was of being independent of my parents. What teen doesn't dream of that right?

I only hope I am a good wife, mother and friend to all I know, but some days its hard to know. Am I doing a good job? Are my kids becoming the kind of people I want them to be? Am I good at my job? Do people like me? I hope I am not alone in these thoughts and feelings. We all have our problems in life, as well as trivial issues with other people, but for the most part now is a good time in my life. I am happy to be where I am right now. When life gets busy and stressful with too many tasks or demands on my time, I try to remember how good things are in my life.

I am missing B as he is gone fishing for a few days. I hope he comes back rested and relaxed from his trip. He seems to need a little R&R once in a while to recharge. Some times people make comments about his going fishing a lot but I know we are all happier when he can go do that. Summer vacation is next week and KD is really ready to be done. Miss M is already done so she has been enjoying not having to get up early to go to school. Noley is growing and talking a lot lately. I asked him if he was thirsty tonight and he said, "Yeah!" clear as day. So you see, I have nothing to complain about. Don't worry this won't last I will have complaints again soon but for now, Life is good.

Go hug your family. I'm off to hug mine.
