"Life will knock you down. You can choose to stand up again."

My kids are my whole world. Jackson, at 16, is driving and telling us amazing-sauce stories about his day everyday. I do not know how kids are able to handle their day-to-day these days. The things that happen in schools today are horrible, terrible, and terrifying. Braxton, at 14, is just a crack-up everyday. The poor thing is so clumsy and asks the funniest questions ever. Oh, I love him. Kaydon, at 13, is so tender and so close to the Spirit. He reminds me at dinner to turn on the scriptures so we can listen while we eat. He texted me today to tell me that a sweet girl, and her friends, asked him if he wanted to eat lunch with them because he was sitting by himself. Colton, at 12, tries so hard to navigate this life. It can be exhausting and frustrating, but I can't imagine our family without him. Brooklyn, at 7, loves to sing in the shower and tell me stories from when she "was a little girl." I have to remind her that she is still my "little girl."
I am so blessed to be their mommy. I love them more than they will ever know.
