LIFE IS OH SO GOOD!

Thank you for your comments, messages, and texts. I'd say phone calls, but no one uses the phone anymore. Your love & support has meant so much to us.

Sometimes people will say they're sorry... I just want to tell you, you don't have to be sorry. We love our Jackson and we're so grateful he's in our family. He's already taught us so much and introduced us to people we would have never met otherwise.

He is making a difference in this world just as God has intended him to do. It is unfortunate that he has a super rare genetic disorder and things will be harder for him in this life. His body will have to work harder then mine, Dad's or his brother's. But it's okay. He'll learn and grow, and so will we.

I've felt the spirit so strong this past month. I've felt God's love for my family and me, individually. I know He is there. I know He is so aware of us. I know He wants us to be happy and have joy. I know He's teaching us to be like Him in this school of life and it's working... to be more kind, patient, full of love, forgiving, selfless, to serve, to be a friend and be there for others.

I prayed for the longest time to be an instrument in His hands...

I stopped praying for that. I didn't want it to be this way. I didn't want any of my kids to have disabilities, selfish of me, probably. When I first got the news it was hard. I knew something was going on but it was still hard to hear. I didn't want anything to be there. I didn't want a diagnosis. I didn't want to think of the problems Jackson will have.

I was so excited to have my "twin" boys, they're 17 months apart, (we did not plan that but it happened and I LOVE it!). I was so excited for them to be close in age, go through life together and be best friends. When we received Jack's diagnosis, that all changed...

They will still go through life together and be best friends, I hope, but it will be different. I can already see the best big brother in Linc. He loves his little brother so much and will be a huge help, support, and best friend to him. I know he will be. He's such a sweet, caring boy. He will really learn how to serve & love someone. I look forward to seeing the relationship between these two and all of our kids.

So all though this hasn't been the easiest thing, life is oh so good! This experience has strengthened my faith and brought me closer to my Father in Heaven and my Savior. I know they are so aware of us. I know they love us and want what is best. I know they have a plan for us and part of that plan was coming to earth to receive a physical body. I know that it's not always going to be easy here. There's death, pain, rare genetic disorders & so much sadness in this world...

But there's SO much good! There's the Gospel of Jesus Christ, scriptures, neighbors/friends, family, vacations, a beautiful world, a Prophet of God, prayer, & so much more!...

God has given us everything we need in this life to be happy. Truly happy. An eternal happiness that will last. This is what has saved me.

Having a knowledge of my Savior, His gospel, His plan, & His ways are my saving grace.

Thank you for reading!
