Shout out # 10 and # 11
I will have to do a combo shout out because I was sick yesterday and couldn't lift my head off the pillow let alone get up and blog about something I love. I'm still sick today but I have taken enough drugs that I am either deliriously better, or am masking major signs of illness which will only make things worse and I'll end up in the hospital later today. Shout out 10 and 11- I love my family. Not just like the normal love that everyone has for their family. If I didn't have to have them as my family, I most certainly would have picked them as my family. We are far from perfect- but thats what I love the most. We all have our good days and bad days...and some even have our "near diabetic coma/I'm going to kick your butt" days"...but I love them all regardless of what kind of "day" they are having! I can't think of a single thing I would want to change about my family. Nevermind- there is one thing. I would move Sharalyn closer to the rest of us. I miss her terribly and would love to have her closer to me. I am grateful that our children are growing up knowing one another. They know how to call eachother/email eachother/and even IM eachother! And ask to do so on a fairly frequent basis. I love that my kids will have grandparents that they are making memories with. I never had that and I never realized what I was missing out on until I saw the relationship Kody has with my parents. He adores them! I love it when he asks to have a sleep over at their house because I know that is something he will always remember! I cannot wait to see little Ayla when she gets here. There is something about the thought of Scott becoming a dad that makes my insides smile. Maybe it's because this is something he has never done and I get to see him learn something new, or the fact that he can't say Ayla's name without getting a smile on his own face. Hurry up little Ayla....we are all waiting for you! Oh- before you leave Heaven, do you think you could look around and see if there are any babies waiting for me??
