That's what the message said inside my Dove chocolate this morning. I'm a worrier. It's what I do. It's in my blood. My mom is a nut- she worries about everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. I'm 22 and married and she still asks me what I ate for lunch and makes me call after long road trips (and by long I mean anything over 1 1/2 hours). Lucy (my grandma,) on the other hand, makes me call when I get home after visiting her - she lives about 10 minutes away. She also worries about the bed we sleep in (it can't be good for our backs) and the bed that her neighbors sleep in. So, I have been doomed to a life of worrying from the start and ironically enough I married a man who has never had a care in the world. Eric is constantly reminding me to take a deep breath and trust the Lord. I am grateful for that, and although his laid back attitude and adventurous spirit makes me worry, I think we balance each other out quite nicely. At least when he is jumping out of planes with our children, someone will be on the ground worrying about them. As for now, I'm going to stop counting my worries and start counting my blessings...

Walk in Love...
"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity"
Love, like faith is a gift from God. It is also the most enduring and powerful virtue. - Gordon B. Hinckley

"I believe laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." -Audrey Hepburn
