Laugh and cry, live and die!

Life has been so busy lately I hardly find time for myself. My two sisters left, one to Louisiana and the other to Utah. Mom just had the baby and I'm stuck taking care of everyone and everything along with teaching school but I'm doing great! It's amazing how much there is to do and how little time to do it in. I'm grateful for this experience though for it will only make me stronger and able to handle more. I feel like I learn so much each day and want to do so much more. Maybe one day I will!

I sit sometimes and wish I could go back and change things. Whether it was something I did or didn't do or say but then I realize that everyone makes mistakes and we learn from them. I'm grateful for my mistakes because now I know how to do it right the next time!

Life is what you make it!

Some people complain that their lives are miserable while others think they have the best life ever. But if you notice, the people who live miserable lives usually have negative attitudes. There is always a bright side to everything. The people who lead the best lives are the ones who can find the bright side and make the best of life. Live in the moment. I read something once about how adults are always waiting...if they are going somewhere then they are waiting to get there, once they are there then they are waiting to leave. We always wait for the next party or for something amazing to happen. Whereas children live in the moment. If they are going somewhere then they play games and enjoy the scenery on the way. Once they get there they enjoy themselves. I think we should stop waiting and start living because after all that is what life is for, to live. Not to wait and wait until you finally up and die without ever having enjoyed living.
