I love the Fall with all it beautiful colors. The trees are all changing and it is just breath taking outside. I really miss my Dad, I wonder if this will ever go away. Really, Its been 11 years since his death. I just want to talk with him and get a big hug from him. On the brighter side to my life. I finished my Schooling at Ross Medical and I am doing a externship as a medical assistant at U of M outpatient surgical center in Livonia. It is not that far from my house. I LOVE my boys and they are such a blessing in my Life. Travis is grown to be such a nice young Man. I love his tender heart. He reminds me a lot of my Dad. Lowell is very handsome and just will not stop growing. Both boys help me a lot with the house and with the grand babies. We have Daemien in a speech class once a week. He gets one to one attention. I am noticing that his articulation is getting better. I am the Secretary for Oakland Schools Parent Advisory Council. I am also a Parent Advocate for my School district. I am really looking forward to this upcoming year working with our parent advisory council. IDEA is going to be reevaluated this next year. So the Federal Laws regard education is going to change. Our group along with the Special Education Directors and the State Representatives are going to get together to help make changes with the legislature. So we can have input before the laws are changed in IDEA. Really, Exciting work. Stephanie is going to Ross with my Mother to become a Dental Assistant. I hope she sticks with it. I keep Praying and I have been letting the kids stay with her and My MOM for the weekends. It seems to be working out so far. I loved Conference last weekend. Especially President Monsons Message. Having Gratitude. I have much Gratitude for my Savior Jesus Christ and I know he loves me. I know his arms are getting sore from holding me. I want to be independent but life isn't going that way for me. I went to the temple a few weeks ago and got a confirmation that I need to endure and It will all work out. I just want to get a job that I love and to be able to pay my bills on time, put food on my table and not struggle. I want to be self sufficient. I do have gratitude and I know I have many Blessings in my life. I have 3 Beautiful Children, 2 Beautiful grandchildren and we are all healthy. I have the gospel in my life and I try to live a good life. Although, sometimes I feel as If I am the Pioneer for my Family and will they ever get with the program? I have wonderful In laws who have let us live in there home. How thankful I am for them and for the opportunity. I also live on the most beautiful River and can go canoeing whenever I want. I am blessed to have wonderful friends in the church who continue to help me and to build my testimony through there examples. Angels sent to me from my Father in Heaven. I also have an amazing Bishop who I love deeply. I love the council he gives to me and also am thankful for all the help he has given to me and my family. I love having Seminary in my home every morning. Secretly, I wish I was a Co seminary teacher. Brother Springer teaches 19 Young men and women every Morning. I love the Spirit that is in my home. I love to see the kids actively engaged and Awake. Except Lowell sometimes I catch him with his head down. I am blessed and I do have gratitude. I also am blessed from the missionaries who always seem to be in my life and are an inspiration to me. Changes are going on and at times it is difficult but I just need to stay positive and have gratitude for my Savior and Everything will work out!
