Days 7 & 8

Day 8:

Today I am grateful for the opportunity to breastfeed my babies. I love that special time. I don't do a lot of things good, but I can breastfeed like a PRO!!! It takes a lot of support from my family and friends, it takes guts (not everyone thinks it's a good thing) and above all, it takes love. It is the way that I show my babies that I love them when they are so tiny. I'm glad I live in a day that it is not just ok for me to breastfeed, but encouraged. I have strong opinions about a woman's right to breastfeed in public and anywhere she wants to. I have always wished that someone would tell me to stop, I think they can feel that that would be a bad idea ;) Over the years of me nursing my 4 children, there's a good chance that those closest to me have been flashed, but I am really good at keeping them under control in public!!! HAPPY FEEDING Y'ALL!!!

Day 7:

Today I am thankful for Family Home Evening. I know we don't follow how some people do FHE, but WE DO IT!!! That's what is important. I think as moms, we have enough on our plate. Doing foofy stuff as a family is just more stress to me than I need. We try to just be TOGETHER. Sometimes we go shopping, to dinner, play games or sometimes we just PJ up and watch a movie together. There's not formal lesson, treat or musical number, but our family is putting each other first on Monday nights. I'm grateful for my church leaders that see the value in doing things together as a family on a regular basis!!!
