Oh, I have such a joy of the Lord that goes beyond anything known to man.  And, oh, how I would love for you to journey with me in such joy.  Truly we serve an awesome God, who is mighty in power.

I have much to be thankful for in my life.  Outside of being a daughter to one of the best mothers in the known universe or having the most awesomest grandmother known to mankind, I am a wife and a mother.

There is no greater blessing that I have yet to find than the one given me in my abilities as a wife.  My husband is adoring and generous and kind and loving, and I could just go on and on and on and on and on and, well, you get the picture.

I have eight children, who are all my heart walking around this Earth outside of my body.  Melissa Michell, Adam Scott, Taysa Christine, Caleb Brawd, Breanna Sue, Michaela Fay Joyce, Jackson Ray, and Alana Jean.  They each have their own personality and character traist, along with their own little quirks; but, I love each child with a feverish love that cannot be quenched or drowned out by another.

I also have one son-in-love and one daughter-in-love and four gorgeous grandchildren.

I am blessed.  Blessed beyond measure!
