{coUnting mY BlessinGs}

My boys are everything to me. I can't imagine life without them. I wake up to their perfect smiles every day. I get to hear all the sweet, innocent things they say. I was blessed with two little funny men to raise and care for. What more could a girl want?
Two faces to wash, and four dirty hands
Two insistent voices, making demands
Twice as much crying, when things go wrong

Then four eyes closing, with slumber song
Twice as many garments, blowing on the line
Two cherubs in the wagon, soaking up sunshine

Work I do for two, naturally comes double
But four arms to hug me, repay all my trouble.

{LaSt DaY TogEtHeR}

Dave left for South Carolina today. He will be gone for 6 months with a one-week visit in July. It was so hard to let him go. He has been everything to me for 6 years now and suddenly I have to say goodbye. Yesterday we went to Cabella's ("the dead zoo"as Jared calls it) in Lehi and just let the kids wander and see all the animals and play in the shotgun arcade. It was great to just take a day off work and be a family for the last time in a while. The boys don't understand that Daddy will be gone for a long time, but I am dreading the day that it finally hits them. I think that is partially why it hasn't been as hard for me, the boys aren't crying or asking when Daddy's coming home yet. I guess we will just take it one day at a time!
