Six Years

6 years ago today I was putting on a beautiful white dress and making my hair pretty and getting ready to make the best decision of my life! I had the honor of making Lance my companion in this life and for eternity! How I snagged him up and got him to propose in the first place I will never know but I thank heaven every day for him in my life!
It's been 6 years since we were sealed for time and all eternity!
6 years! It's been the greatest hardest hardest beautiful years of my life!
It's crazy to look back at what we went through. If you'd asked me 6 years ago if I saw myself where I am today - living in Texas, lance in chiropractic school, 8 month old daughter and me a stay at home mom. I would have thought you were crazy. I am so glad We have put our faith into The Lord and listened to the spirit guide us where we needed. I am so grateful for the trials we have gone through for they made us stronger as individuals and as a couple and because they made the good times that much better. There are lots of things I don't understand or know in this life but these things I know without a doubt ; Christ lives and suffered for our sins, Heavenly Father hears our prayers and answers them( not always in the way you thought But he answers them) family is the most important thing we have in this world, I love Lance more than anyone could love another human being, lance and I work great together, and last but not least we make beautiful babies!
Happy anniversary Lance, love of my life, McGee! Here's to eternity!

Quality time as a couple.

I have been trying to think of things that will help build and strengthen our marriage and relationship towards each other.
Lance and I are the kind of couple who just have tons of fun together no matter what we are doing. We are each others best friends and the whole no secrets in our relationship works well. People know if you tell me not to say anything I won't but Lance doesn't count he is like a branch of me .. I guess that's one way to describe it. Anyways we have a good relationship but with every relationship if your not actively working on it caring for it nurturing it. Then what are you doing? I had the lesson in yw on Sunday and one of the topics was - how can I strengthen your testimony?
We have all heard the plant a seed/ testimony comparison. So we decided that once a week we would read a conference talk together from this last conference. We have been trying to think of ways to 'fireproof' our marriage and thought this a good idea for us to grow in the gospel together. Cause let's face it when people get married they don't think yeah in x amount of years we're probably gonna get divorced. It can happen in any marriage. Lance and I don't want that happening to ours and we will work our best to insure it doesn't by putting in the time and work now. I'm am excited!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day has always been a rough day for me between the years of yearning to be a mom and being a mom to angel babies but not feeling like 'celebrating' because I didn't have my own baby in my arms to hold. Mother's Day to me is honoring the women who love like a mother.

My Aunt Judy never birthed a kid but she was a mother in my eyes. She was my second Mom she loved me as her own. I hope I can feel like a second Mom for my nieces and nephews because I love them as my own and would do anything for them.
This Mother's Day is the first one I feel like celebrating and am honored to be Kensleys Mother. Not a day goes by I don't thank Heavenly Father for her. I also don't go a day without praying for my sweet friends who are waiting for their own miracle baby. So for all the Women who have their own babies the women who are waiting and the women who love other children as their own Happy Mother's Day!
