Hello to all, So I know that not to many of you will actually see this, because so many of you have given up on me, well as far as blogging goes. But I am here and still breathing. I was thinking about life and how it can seem so overwhelming, and suffocating. But then I went to the one place that helps me look at reality, and be grateful for my Savior, and all of the amazingly wonderful blessings he has blessed me with, NieNie! I don't mean to sound like a "Debbie Downer," but, there are definitely times in life when my chest feels so tight, and I can't breath. Times when all of a sudden there are so many emotions to deal with at the same time, it feels like a waterfall is coming down on top of me. Then somehow I find myself sitting down and reading what she has so sweetly and lovingly shared with the world. She is such an amazing example of letting her light so shine. Her honest and uplifting attitude is magnificent. To be able to go through such experiences with such unyeilding faith, and charity, is indescribably amazing! So here is to Stephanie Aurora Clark Neilson! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have not only inspired me to be a better mother but helped me to laugh at those times when I just want to hide under my covers until my children stop screaming! Thank you for showing me how to love and flirt with my sweet husband. We have four kids of our own, and I dream of our lives being filled with as much love and appreciation as your family shows for one another.

I haven't given up on you! You have such a descriptive way of expressing yourself I wish I had. I can totally empathize with times when it feels hard to breathe and nothing seems to be going right. I love going to church and the temple to feel the spirit and begin to breathe a little bit easier. Keep smiling! :-)
