Busy! :)

These are in the works. I still need to solder them. My favorite part!

Wow! Life has been busy! It's been a good busy. Yesterday was the sabbath. Steve, and I both had lessons to teach. My lesson was on honesty. When I originally read what the lesson was going to be on, I thought...easy! Then I started praying, and pondering about the blessings that come with honesty. Then I started realizing the pain, and long suffering that can come with being dishonest. This was something I knew these cute girls needed to hear. It was so important to me to do it in a way that really meant something to them. This was not as easy of a lesson as I had originally thought. All, and all it went well. I had more information to share than time allowed. I think they left there knowing, I have a true testimony of being honest. Not just thinking, or saying we are honest. Gut wrenching honesty. The kind of honesty that at the end of the day you can feel good about yourself, and be proud to be a daughter of our heavenly father. After church we went out to Ben, and Dessie's for dinner. Fun times! Those two are the cutest! I was sitting in their home looking at all of my family. Everyone of the kids where there. It about brought tears to my eyes. Actually I think it did! :) I feel so blessed, so honored to be their Mom. I feel so lucky to know that Steve is their Father. I left there home thinking there is nothing more in the world that I ever dreamed of, ever wanted than this. As I am typing this I have tears in my eyes! Maybe it is hormones? I think not, it is what it is...love. Enough of the serious stuff! :)

I have been super busy with my necklaces, and charms. Today I will be working on one for someone who just had triplets! I am soooo excited to work on this one. What an honor! Saturday I am going to be in a boutique in Mesa. This has put me fast at work, and little play. I also have had orders this week for the personalized picture necklaces, and key chains. I love seeing the pictures people send me. So fun! I am off to start the day. I hope everyone is having a Happy Monday!

i always get emotional when the ENTIRE family of siblings is at one place..i will never forget when it was katie (jons YOUNGEST sibling) wedding..and we were all in the sealing room..his mom said "my greatest joy is being in this room with every single one of my children (7 of them!) and their spouse-because it means you're all living the kind of life i'd always dreamed of in order to be in the temple and i thank you for living righteously"..it was soooo touching!!

I so love you Michelle. I can't sit here and ever recall a time where you have ever complained about your kids, family or life! You have a beautiful attitude we can all draw from for inspiration.

Is this because they are older and don't make as many messes as my kids do? Seriously! What's your secret!

sweet!!!!!!! that picture on my side bar of my siblings.. I just love it- after that was taken we were all 6 of us in a little huddle talking for a second.. and my eldest sister anna just said- look at us.. it has been a long time, since it was just us.. TOTAL quiet.. I loved that moment.. looking at each other and sharing love for that one second.. I am so grateful for good parents that I had who helped us see the importance of loving each other and getting along..
I so love them..

I loved this post. How sweet that you care so much for those girls to work so hard on your lessons (although it doesn't surprise me in the least!!) and be so thoughtful.
I love what a great example of a mother you are. I hope that each day I am more like you. I honestly was thinking today about something, and thought....what would Michelle do?? And that is what I did! ;o) Is that goofy?
Anyways, I am so excited to see the necklace for Shelby! Hopefully I can call you tomorrow and we can plan a "lesson night" so that I can figure out how to do these soon!
You are the greatest!
xo xo xo!
