Ok..

If you view my blog regularly you may have noticed that I have been a little all over the place with my posts this week(posting and then removing posts)...what can I say...my brain is a little crazy these days...especially when it comes to deciding what I really want to share or what really is appropriate to share with the rest of the blogging world.


With that being said I guess we won't be going private after all....at least not right now. I didn't realize we could only have a certain number of invites to view the blog and we had more requests than that number....so I guess we will leave it for now.


So here is what has been happening with my family over the last little while.....

This is a direct quote from my mom, "I feel like all my kids are in crisis right now...I don't have enough worry to go around..."



That really was not an exaggeration at all....it actually sums up my family right now pretty perfectly.



Collin is taking the BAR exam. That explains itself. While he has been preparing for that, Mandi has taken on the role of single mom over the summer and is dealing with sick kids, trying to pack up things by herself to move, and to top it off she fell and hurt her back pretty bad.



Brandon and Alysha's Mom unexpectedly pass away a few weeks ago. It completely caught them off guard and has really been a shock to their entire family. On top of such a horrible loss Alysha has really been having a hard time at work.



Corbin lost his job on Wednesday. He made an honest mistake and entered in some data incorrectly. He didn't think it would be a big deal but apparently it was.



Ryan is going through a horrible divorce. He is heartbroken and beat down. We have all been trying to help him pick up the pieces and start the healing process. Our entire family (all the siblings) have really been affected by this.



Now that brings me to my little family. Jared lost his job last sunday. It was COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED. Now that we have had some time to gather our emotions and compose ourselves we are trying to find the positive in the situation and move forward. I have already gone back to work full time (by some miracle my boss was able to give me full time hours) to help cushion the blow and to give Jared some time to decide which direction he will go next. I feel blessed that I have my degree and the ability to work and help my family at this time. I am not totally excited about having to go back to work full time, but I always said that this is what I got my education and degree for....situations exactly like this one. We will be ok I am sure of it....it just might take us a little bit to figure things out.

My brother Justin is in Moses Lake if Ryan needs someone to talk to. And I'm sure my parents would be willing to offer any advice or just give a listening ear to your parents. Its hard when a sibling is going through that.

I've been going back and forth with wanting to make my blog private as well. Sometimes, I want to share things and or write about things for myself that I don't want everyone to have access to. I'm sorry that you're even having to think about that. Hope things are feeling better. :)

Myca I have been so worried about what is going on. I am so sorry for the tremendous amount of heartache. Just know that life is a cycle and you will all be blessed for these horrible trials. You are in my prayers.

So sorry to hear about what has been going on. I can't imagine going through all of that. Thank goodness for the gospel and the strength of families!

Oh, Myca... I understand your mother's quote completely. Here is a quote I ran across a couple of years ago that I love...

No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience, is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. all that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God... and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we came here to acquire and will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.

We love you and are praying for you (I actually added yours and Jared's name to the prayer roll last Thurs)

Well I am glad that your not going private. Iloe reading your blog and keeping a note on your family. You guys are important to us. My comments on the original post still stands. I'm sorry you guys are going through it, but I am sure you'll be stronger for it and the blessings will come. We're thinking of you.
