I don't think that there has been a day where my eyes have not filled up with tears since I have been living here. I usually have a moment to my self where I start to think of my (old) home, friends, family, and my kids little friends, and start to cry, but then they are quickly wiped away by my reality of having to continue to move on and realize this is my new home. I do like it here in Arizona (Everyone here has been so welcoming) but shouldn't I be allowed to feel sad every once in a while?? I feel bad feeling bad. A friend who I miss SO much told me a while ago, just stop and count your blessings. I realized how blessed I am. I have so much to be thankful for, even though I know some days are just sad and lonely, or not what I want them to be, I am blessed.

My heart Aches

My heart is aching tonight for my friend in my ward, April. She recently lost her sweet boy Caleb. Caleb was born without a brain, but he was put on this earth for a reason. He lived for 7 years! He was full of love and such a sweet spirit, he taught so many people so many lessons, and especially that everyone has the ability to Love. Read Her blog, Wink From Heaven. Please listen to her blog with music on, it really helps you to feel Caleb's sweet spirit. His story has touched so many lives, as I know it will touch yours. Please remember to keep April and her family in your prayers.

How many times have I posted about not having camera ?!?!?

How many times have I complained on my blog about not having a camera?? Click Here, Here, and Here
And now I have this post to add to the list! I am so angry that I have not had my camera since October!! All my pictures have been captured on my phone or by some one else. Lets count all the milestones I have missed:
-Diesel 3 months
-Diesel 4 Months
-Reggies Birthday
-New Years
-Diesel 5 months
-Diesel Sitting up
-Diesel eating
-Diesel sort of crawling
-Diesel 6 months
and all those other cute moments.

Which makes me grateful for Facebook (and my amazing iPhone.) I am thankful that I can post all the silly/cute things my kids say to me so I have some what of a documentation of my children and I also have a place to post my pictures from my phone :) I feel like such a terrible mom that I dont have very many pictures of Diesel and he is 6 months old!

Marina took a few pictures of Baby D, they turned out adorable!
