Day 11 and 12 Be like a little child

Day 11 and 12 Helpers Sorry I'm behind on my post. I have not had energy to do anything. It has been nice hanging out for 3 days and not being tempted to eat anything. Hey, I have not had any chocolate in 3 days and don't have a desire to eat any, actually anything. It's been nice seeing the scale go down a bit, but I'm tired of being sick and hope I can eat again soon. Being sick takes a lot out of you, but I have had some great helpers. I washed my sheets the other day and Zac and Reilly would not let me make my bed. I tried one corner and Zac said "stop right there mom, we are going to do it" So I let them do it and then they kept coming in my room to give me a hug and ask if I was still sick. They have been very helpful and patient with me. I got to thinking that this is how the Savior is with all of us. He is helpful, patient, kind, thoughtful, loving, concerned, forgiving and so much more, and that's how our kids are sometimes. We can learn from them and be like the Savior in all we do and say. So having my kids help me, helped me remember the Savior and how much he does for me and all of us. Letting Him in more will help us be like Him.

You have amazing kids, Julie! They are so cute and so helpful, I love hearing about the little things they do every day-since I don't see them everyday (I wish I did!). Do you remember several Christmases ago when Riley was way small and we were at the Santa party...he was looking out the window and as mom & dad drove up he said, "Bumma & Bummpa are here!!" And then how the next time I heard him say, "Damna & Damnpa"? He is such a funny kid...and a good, good boy. Yes, you are right..., kids are great helpers..and they do help us Let Him In more....I deal with 25 kids all day and I have tons of testimonials of that!!!!

I second what Karen said above about your amazing kids. I seriously got all teary-eyed reading this. I was not such a thoughtful child (though I did always sneak back to my parents' room to say "thank you, Santa" after we dug into our stockings. These posts really are all so nice, Julie.
