Sleep Tight.

Laying in bed with Anita at the end of a difficult evening, after the unexplained crying has ended, I finally feel myself relaxing. She must have felt it too because she put her sweet little face next to mine and wrapped her arm around my neck and said, " It's ok mommy I'll keep you safe."
I'm so glad that I have forgiving children and no matter how short tempered I've been, some cuddles and quality time seem to heal all the hurts I inflict.

I've been doing so well the last week, we have been using positive labeling. Which works well but requires lots of control on my part, but Anita responds well to it.

But I really need to get it together this week because Matt is leaving Wednesday night for a meeting in Calgary. He will only be gone for a little more that 24 hours. I'm sure we will live.

I need to read my scriptures more.
I'll do that right now I think, now that they are sleeping.
So sleep tight, and I'm glad that some one will be keeping me safe while I sleep.

Whew what a week!
We had a wonderful visit with both sides of the family. The girls saw almost all of their living (great) grandparents, we spent some good time with Duncan who just came home from his mission, the girls weren't too shy of him (this was J's first time meeting him) and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my older sister and family.

I am so thankful for our new car so we can go and visit people, and that Matt has a job so that we can afford to go and visit people.

I'm thankful that my brother is marrying a great girl with a great family!

I'm thankful for my children and our health.

I'm thankful for our friends and our ward.

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband, who is so willing to help and so patient with me.

I am thankful for the Savior, the Atonement and the Gospel.

And I am thankful for prayer.

This is the short list, maybe I'll add one thing at the end of each post that I am thankful for each week. There are so many other things. It was a great week away, and I'm looking for ward to Christmas.
